WHAT IS BUDGET TRAVEL?

Africa

These are our classic small group adventures of 4 - 12 people. We call these trips Budget because they are cheap but adventurous. They run at a relaxed pace, include plenty of free time and are built from local know-how. Our Budget style trips have a great balance of included activities with your group and free time to explore independently. You could also find yourself camping or the privileged guest of a local family while on a homestay.

WHAT IS THE ACCOMMODATION LIKE?

We look for simple, clean and centrally located accommodation to give you a good night's rest along with a great trip price. Generally Budget trips use budget accommodation, sometimes with shared facilities and occasionally on a double-share basis. In most locations we stay in simple tourist-class hotels, hostels and camping sites.
