Arthur Frommer: $68,950 safari: An immoral indulgence?

The 20-page booklet, which recently arrived in my home by mail, is a handsome production of stunning color photographs and elegant typography, all of it promoting a single 21-day tour of Africa leaving the U.S. Jan. 9, 2012, and costing $68,950 per person, double occupancy (not including round-trip airfare to London, from where the tour departs). In other words, a couple traveling tog ether will spend a total of $137,900 to buy the tour arrangements detailed in the booklet, plus airfare for two people round-trip to London. Single people traveling alone pay a surcharge of $9,450, for a total of $78,400, again not including round-trip airfare from the U.S. to London.
