That’s quite an absurdly low number. And I was happy with my $50 a day in Budapest number. I’m thinking Prague used to be like that but now its on the traveler’s hot spot list. I think I’ll be spending a little more a day here.
It’s about $2,000 less than we budgeted for Africa, so we were happy. We didn’t do some of the big ticket items—climbing Kili or doing a traditional Serengeti safari—so that saved some money. But we did rent a car and didn’t really rough it that much. I mean, even our tent had a nice big double air mattress that was more comfortable than half the beds we stayed in!
I think you’re right about Prague. I hear it’s become a good bit more expensive than when I was there in 2001.
Man I wish we’d have traveled through Africa like you did. We did an organized tour through Absolute Africa and would never do it again. In 2 months we spent what you did in 3 months! Plus our guide was useless and the people on our truck only cared about where the bar was at the campsite. I guess we just weren’t built for ‘group travel’. I’ve loved reading about your experiences there! And next time – we’re doing it on our own (not sure what we were so afraid of!)
