Absolute Holiday Safaris – https://www.absoluteholidaysafaris.com {Tourism Regulatory Authority TRA1/47/CO1/2639}. We wish to focus on the best time to travel and making a booking for 2020 so that our clientele can have the best travel plan.

We have customized packages, Budget Kenya Tours, Private safaris, Family tours and safaris, hiking adventures among other many safaris that we are sure this year they will be the most booked tours.

Here is our observation:

  1. HIGH SEASON OR SHOULDER SEASON – 3RD/JAN/2020 – 30TH MARCH 2020

The number of Tourist visiting is a bit less compared to high season, we have availability of accommodation almost in all safari accommodations from Budget, Mid Range, Safari lodge and Luxury and this make it easy to book any property as per the clients request.

The rate for the tour is determined by the type of the accommodation the clients are choosing.

  • The parks are less crowded and the guides are doing their best to make sure the clients have the best.
  • The accommodation properties are less populated and the clients are having the best tents/rooms.
  • Clients are getting personal attention from the office and while on the field and this ensures best services are offered.
  1. LOW SEASON – 1ST APRIL 2020 – 30TH JUNE 2020 – BEST RATE GUARANTEED.

During this period the country receive a low number of Tourist and the Safari Lodges lower their rates making it affordable to many Clients. Clients traveling by this time are the one who wish to travel when the parks are less populated and they always get the best.

  • Personal attention as the operators has few clients to take care off.
  • Easy to upgrade the tour to a safari lodge or Luxury accommodation at an affordable rates.
  • The group size is always less than 7 clients and this gives great views during the game drives.
  • Best for Family holiday and bonding since they do have the best time at the accommodation property.
  • There is really small difference between the budget accommodation and lodge accommodation/ mid range accommodation.
  • Clients have a chance to Enjoy the best properties at an affordable rates.
  • Only the best driver guides who are highly rated are provided and this make the clients to have the best experience as the guides are rich of information.
  1. PEAK SEASON 1ST JULY 2020 – 31ST OCT 2020

During this period all tour Operators are under pressure due to straining in finding the accommodation and the large number of clients whereby some do the last minute booking. The Accommodation properties and the parks are crowded on all sides. During this Period maasai mara get its annual great Migration which is the dream of each tourist to be an eye witness.

Safaris are really great and clients have a lot to enjoy, the challenges faced are as below:

  • Lack of enough accommodation to accommodate all the clients and this make the property owners to force clients to share tents/Rooms. To Absolute Holiday Safaris Clients early booking will save you from issues of accommodation.
  • Transport is always an issue and the best guides are first allocated to clients who booked the tours in advance, this time many freelance driver guides take the advantage and sometimes the safaris are full of issues…. Reserve your tour in advance and avoid the last minute bookings.
  • Upgrade of the accommodation to Safari lodges are not easy and clients do not get exactly what they wish for,.
  • Group joining safari vehicles sometimes are overcrowded as each client is always ready to go and this makes some organization to get some bad reviews .

NOTE:

  1. Early booking are not affected as they are already budgeted for and their accommodation fully booked.
  2. Private safaris and customized safari are always safe and not affected by the peak season, at the time of booking clients have a chance to request for a guide they wish to have.
