Rack rates for safaris

Jump to last reply

I have been to safari in Tanzania and S.Africa. I am planning on going again with my wife and was interested in the Sabi Sands area this time. Last time, I paid the rack rates, even though I booked through an online company called Safarinow-they had a lot of options and I booked a few days in Capetown too with them and booked Hoedspruit to Cape town flight myself. I am wondering is there any benefit of going through an agent? Are there any agents that give discounts on the rack rates? Just trying to see what kind of rates I can expect?

Currently looking at Londolozi, Sabi Sabi or Mala Mala, plus a few days of the Hamilton tented camp in Kruger. ( They seem to be lower priced, so thought I would mix up a few days of that with a few days of luxury.) But just wondering who might be a good travel agent for getting a good rate. Just in the planning stages now -Not looking for anything over $750 a night sharing p/p.
