Saving for an African safari is easy and over time is very little cost per month : start saving ONLY $ 400 / month !!
Here is the time frame, for example :
3 Trophys ( 1 Kudu, 1 Blesbok and 1 Springbok ) , 5 hunting days, 6 nights with Richard Holmes Safaris for 1 hunter:
Package price = $ 3000. Your first half deposit is $ 1500 on booking.
So, in about 1 half years time = 16 months, you want to go on your Safari and you start to save $ 400 per month now.
After about 4 months of saving you have the deposit saved and paid for and you get a date booked with Richard Holmes Safaris = $ 1500 with $ 100 still spare.
After another 10 months of saving = $ 4000 + 100 spare you have the money saved for the final half of the hunt and for High Season Airfare ( $ 1500 final half of hunt deposit – 2000 Airfare = $ 600 left in savings ).
Another 2 months of savings = $ 800 + 600 already saved = $ 1400 saved and you have money for tips, hotels, taxi, curios and gifts on your trip.
Then you are ready to go Hunting !
Another 4 months of savings = $ 1600 After your safari you then have enough to pay for the required half of your Taxidermy shoulder mounting bill = about $ 1400 paid to taxidermist here ( and $ 200 still left in savings ).
After another 9 months of savings after your safari = $ 3600 saved + 200 left in savings = $ 3800, by which time your 3 Trophys are mounted and ready to be sent to your home, you have all the money to pay for this, the final payment = $ 3700. ( being the final half to taxidermist $ 1400, air freight of your crate, US customs clearing fee and transport fees to your home ) and you have about $ 100 left to have a party to celebrate the arrival of your trophys !!
Simple Summary :
Start Saving ONLY $ 400 / month about 1 and half years before you want to go on safari and for ~ 13 months after your Africa hunting Safari and this will cover ALL costs and you have 3 beautiful African Iconic Trophys and will have had a Great Experience and a Hunt of a Lifetime !!
