Value Watch: African Safaris with &Beyond
Imagine watching the Rift Valley's tree-climbing lions, tracking wildlife along the Zambezi River near Victoria Falls, or exploring the waterways of the Okavango Delta. An extended stay at an &Beyond lodge in Africa now comes with a lower price tag, making those safari fantasies more easily obtainable. The company is offering four nights for the price of three at its deluxe safari camps in Botswana and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe May 1 through Dec. 20. The same deal applies to its lodges in Tanzania Sept. 1 through Dec. 20.
Want more bargains? With the U.S. dollar on the rise, a trip to South Africa is now 30 percent less than it was last year; &Beyond sweetens the deal by offering a six-night stay for the price of four nights on its Lavish South Africa tour, which includes gay-friendly Cape Town, the Wine Route, and game drives through top wildlife reserves. The discount is available through Sept. 30.
