The Fine Print...

♦ This is a sample package only. It is designed to offer ideas for travel 

options and costs. Your Breakdown Safari, however, can be customized 

to fit YOUR needs and requests. The cost of this package represents the 

“Friends & Family Discount” offered for the 2014 – 2015 safari season. 

2015 – 2016 prices will indicate a significant increase!

♦ This package includes parks and activities in Western Tanzania, with 

a brief but splendid finish in the Southern Highlands. Please see our 

service map below. This package represents some of the most remote and 

isolated destinations in the world. Travel can be long and arduous.

♦ Breakdown Safaris has committed to providing a safari experience at the 

lowest possible cost, while still insuring reasonable comfort and safety 

for our guests. Charter flights to the remote areas visited in this package 

range from $5,000 - $10,000 each. We have chosen, then, to use only 

scheduled or inducement flights. Please note that the flight from Mahale 

Mountains National Park to Kipili on Day 6 MUST fall on a Monday or a 

Thursday and thus affects the timing of the entire package. 

♦ This package does not include airport transfer and hotel(s) in Dar 

es Salaam immediately after your arrival or prior to your departure. 

Breakdown Safaris is happy to arrange for these services at additional 

cost. Please inquire!
