Often, like with any kind of trip one of the biggest expenses is on accommodation. A private lodge on a safari resort is going to take a big chunk of your travel budget. But there are of course more affordable options. In South Africa there are budget lodges in some areas.
Although the accommodation might be not as luxurious, it will give you a great experience. Another factor to consider is the location that you are thinking of going to. Particularly the country you are visiting, with prices much lower in Tanzania and Kenya they are more affordable and giving you are great experience too.
The larger hotels and resorts have accommodation that it such more affordable than the private lodges in Safari resorts. So a Safari could be a reality after all. Don't forget to pack your serengeti sunglasses. Another option of course is to do a self drive if you are unto the challenge.
