More Questions and Answers

Q:

Is there an option to visit Ngorongoro Crater before starting this tour? If so, how much would that extension be? We would like to do the Amboseli extension, but could we possibly do that before the tour? We are interested in the late July date. Would you be able to do other dates a little earlier in July to end at the end of July? Sorry for so many questions. Trying to figure out if we can make these work with work schedules.

Helen C.  asked on  Mar 3, 2013

A:

The optional extension to Amboseli is scheduled before the main safari with a departure from the US on July 24 for the July date. We could put a customized extension together to visit Ngorongoro Crater before Amboseli. Costs depend on the number of travelers, accommodation availability, etc. Please contact our office at 800-627-1244 for additional information.

Q:

Hello, is it possible to have a stop in Addis Ababa on the way back? I would have my own accommodations and could pay the extra to stop in Addis Ababa.

Bobby F.  asked on  Mar 1, 2013

Yes, it is possible to have a stop in Addis Ababa. There would be a slight increase in taxes and possibly in airfare. Please advise the dates you were looking at and we will check exact costs. (Need date from IAD to NBO, date from NBO to ADD and date from ADD to IAD.)

Q:

If I were to buy Option 2: Depart 4/20/13, the grand total for two people would be $5,992, is that correct? No additional taxes for each couple? I read in the Washington Post article that you provided on your website that there was an additional $1,200 tax per couple?

Cindy C.  asked on  Feb 26, 2013

A:

Yes, the selling price now includes all taxes and fees, so the total for April 22 for two people would be $5,992. Originally, taxes were charged separately.
