Affordable & Cheap Kite Safari?
What is the right price for a kite safari? Why some kite safari are more expensive than others? I try to explain here my thoughts on the difference price range that I constantly see online…
Let’s start from my trips. I try to make them at a reasonable price, cause I always think that a kitesurfing cruise plus a plane ticket (especially after Covid) is expensive. Keep in mind this is an all inclusive kite trip, with food and accommodation and a lot of kiting: but it’s still a 1000€ trip plus 500€ flights. For a week holiday this is for me the right price.
More expensive than that, I start having a problem. I see trips at 1500€ for example, and this can be explained as well of course:
1- The boat of a more expensive trip is usually better. But do we need a boat with a Jacuzzi and a sauna? I personally need a boat that is great looking & functional, with nice and cozy cabins with air-condition, and that reflects on the price I make.
2- Volume. The more weeks you spend at sea, the cheaper you can make a trip while not compromising on the quality. Is that simple, and I do a lot of weeks at sea every year, so I can keep my price a bit lower.
I would say 1000€ is the magic number: less than that I would need to compromise on the quality of the boat or on my team, and I don’t want to do that.
Hope to see you on board soon!
I love kitesurfing, travelling, and making short walks with my dog. I organize kite cruises in Egypt since 2014, you may find me in some windy beach pretty much all year round when I’m not on the boat, may it be Egypt, Cape Verde, Mauritius or Greece. I drink red wine and play (badly) the guitar. You can contact me at +201009410388 (whatsapp or calls) or just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you on board one of these days!
