“Thank you for making our Kilimanjaro climb a success. We were well taken care of, and everything was well thought out and planned. Our guides, Richard, Nelson, and Eric, were wonderful. Would not be possible without such extraordinary guides who even provided motivation and encouragement when needed. Could not be more grateful for a wonderful team! Highly recommended.”
Could not have been better!

  • Thomas
“I just finished a climb to Kilimanjaro through the Machame route with this local tour operator. The travel guide and his team cared perfectly for us—even on some rainy days. There was always hot tea on the way and a bed-bottle at night. The food was amazing—fresh fruit and veggies every day. And we all made it to the summit—first group and right in time for sunrise. Could not have been better. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience!”
Incredible tour - especially thanks to the great team

  • Stephan Gnther Helmut Dengler
“We did the Lemosho route over the turn of the year, accompanied by our guides Raymond and Gilibert and their strong Porter-Team. At first, we weren't quite sure whether four "lowland-Indians" like us Germans would be able to conquer the almost 6,000 meter-high Kilimanjaro, but we decided to do on this adventure. Thanks to the incredibly warm and friendly nature of our team (I'll never forget Raymond looking in my eyes saying "My brother from another mother" ?), who always gave us their full support and stood by us physically and mentally, we managed it. I can only wish all interested parties an incredibly strong and supportive guide-duo like we had, then "Kill the Kili" is no longer just a saying but reality. Thank you very much — we will never forget that journey ❤”

Tanzania Budget Trips and Tour Packages

Choosing a budget trip in Tanzania will depend on what you want to see and do. Here are some popular options:

Plan budget game drives to spot the wildlife in Tanzania: Visit some of Tanzania’s amazing national parks, like Tarangire National Park and Serengeti National Park, while on a budget game drive and see the country’s spectacular wildlife. Budget game drives are generally part of a budget or camping safari trip where you will stay in tents as opposed to a five-star game lodge.

Embark on a budget trek to Mt. Kilimanjaro: Standing sentry over the vastness of Africa like a lone soldier with a cloak of clouds, Mt. Kilimanjaro is an icon of East Africa. You can climb Mt. Kilimanjaro on a budget with the aid of a good walking stick, proper clothing and a professional guide. It is one of the world's most accessible peaks to summit.

Go on a budget Zanzibar beach holiday: A budget Zanzibar holiday includes affordable accommodations such as guesthouses or budget hotels, as well as access to public beaches and free or low-cost activities. Known as the ‘Spice Island’, Zanzibar is full of vibrant, bustling spice markets where exotic scents from Africa and the Middle East pervade the air. Explore the island’s capital, Stone Town, to experience its diverse culture and enjoy water sports like scuba diving and snorkeling. In Zanzibar budget tours, you can also go explore secluded bays and beaches.

Tanzania budget tours by age

Tanzania's beautiful landscapes and friendly people make it a fantastic destination for all age groups.

Tanzania budget tours by popular travel theme

Tanzania’s incredible landscapes and diverse wildlife offer a variety of adventures and experiences.

Tanzania Budget Camping Tours.
Budget camping safaris give you a chance to get in touch with nature and experience Africa in the style of a true explorer. Set up camp at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro and be surrounded by the sight and sound of raw nature while sleeping under the stars with fellow campers.
Tanzania Budget Safari Tours.
Tanzania is home to one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Discover the treasures of the wild on budget safari tours as you venture into the wilderness under the expert guidance of professional game rangers. See the Big Five and other African creatures, along with unique flora endemic to Africa.

Travel experience and benefits of Tanzania budget trips

  • As a part of your budget Tanzania safari experience, camp in popular safari parks such as the vast plains of Serengeti National Park.
  • Witness the awe-inspiring Great Wildebeest Migration through affordable game drives, an economical alternative to hot air ballooning.
  • Discover the beauty of Tanzania in lesser-popular, budget national parks like Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park.
  • Sightsee iconic landmarks such as Darajani Bazaar and the Old Slave Market in Stone Town, Zanzibar, as a part of your Tanzania walking tour. Alternatively, consider dala dalas for an affordable means of transportation to explore the town.
  • Take advantage of off-peak seasons from November to December for discounted prices during the short rainy season. Don't worry; the rain is far more manageable than during the long wet season from March to May.

Tips when on Tanzania budget trips

  • Plan your itinerary wisely to make the most of each day. Filling your schedule with exciting activities and destination visits can shorten your stay and reduce your overall expenses.
  • If you’re traveling in the peak tourist season (June to October and March to May), book your tours and accommodations well in advance to avoid inflated high-season prices.
  • When you are traveling to and from the airport or exploring during some free time on your budget Tanzania tour, hop on a bus. It is the cheapest way to travel; you will also get to know the locals.
  • Join a group budget trip as opposed to a private trip. It is more affordable and offers the chance to meet other like-minded travelers.
