Overall Rating











Tucan are just budget enough for me. Most nights are spent in tents, cooking your own food and doing your own washing up (this is the budget, no-frills part) and a hot shower is a luxury (but a hot shower is a luxury most places in Africa- even relatively expensive hotels and safari lodges). However, you do not miss out when it is really important- the activities, experiences- in fact you probably get far more from it. Would you rather sleep in a 4 star safari lodge encampment, or in a camp listening to lions roar, bushbabies wail and with wild zebras and elephants wandering around the campsite? While they are budget, they are not as cheap as some, however with Tucan we went on safari in proper safari vehicles rather than in the expedition truck and had our tents put up and taken down for us, food cooked and packed lunches made so the full day could be spent viewing animals rather than cooking and preparing camp. The vehicles were the nicest I've seen, the guides were excellent (we saw an astonishing number of animals)- highly recommended.
