    They were included in presale but they don't typically sell out. There was lots available during regular sale last year.

    Thanks
    I believe you can preorder/layaway for the next week and it's 34% down, then 33% August 1st, and 33% Jan 1st.

    thanks - you can't book them online, do you know if the 20% payment plan is available for them? Just sent an email through.

    Last year weekend one didn't sell out until shortly before. During weekend one I was told that there were still a few left for weekend two.

    Why does someone who can afford the safari tents need a payment plan?

    because they can't really afford Safari tents. I wish I could buy one. I guess I'd have to bring some hookers and blow too.

    Not sure, but it looks like they changed it to 4 payments now. Honestly I would probably need to do it just for the sole reason I don't even have a $6,500+ limit on my card. But I definitely can't afford it anyway.

    I did it last year for the first time. This is a lame statement, but if you can afford it, it is worth every penny. But if you really should not be spending the extra money on it, it isn't. The Safari area is amazing, but it isn't really that much closer than the car/tent camping. Safari makes it easy to have front of the crowd access, but if you get to the acts you want to see early enough, you will have the same view. You get access to the VIP areas, but I found it just as easy to get a beer in the regular beer gardens as I did the VIP area. Bottom line is if you are maxing your credit cards out to buy it, it is probably a bad idea.

    There is also still backstage access right? They had it last year.

    I can only speak for 2012. You can get behind the stage at both stages and all three tents. That is how you can get from stage to stage. It is also how you catch the golf cart back to your tent. Strangely you did not have access to the stages in the tents. However, you could walk right up on side stage for the Outdoor or Main Stages, except during the headliners. I watched part of Shins from on the stage. Pretty cool.

    Shins from side stage. First time posting a picture so I apologize. Taken with my phone, so it's not the best picture. You can see the VIP area in the background.

    Cool pic.

    So, where is the preferred viewing area during the headliners? Do you get to sit/stand in front of the barricade?

    I was going to try and describe it, but thought a sketch would be better. For many sets you were right on the rail or only a few people back. For the night stuff you were a little farther back. For the headliners you had to get there at least an hour early and then work you way up. I was about 5 off the rail for Snoop & Dre and I was there 1.5 hours before they went on.

    I can't find my camera, so I am missing many of my pictures from the weekend. What I posted earlier was from my phone. I am sure I took a picture of the pool with my camera but.....

    So, the next best thing is a link to a picture: http://valleymusictravel.com/coachella_safari2013.php

    It was an above ground pool with a deck around it.

    Did you end up going for Safari? I had it last year...but all I did was buy the spot off someone, I didn't stay in their tent (I have a good car camp setup). I did use the showers and enjoy the food/snacks in the Safari compound though! And the stage access was pretty awesome - guest area up front, back/side stage access, etc. Got Sebastian Ingrosso to sign my MIA2IBZ license plate, too

    If you get it again this year, please let me know. I'd be up for buying a spot.

    Happy Chella!!

    Were safari tents part of presale this year? (Not talking payment plan, but just if there were available to purchase during presale in May last year)
    We are thinking of getting one for next year - mostly because I will be pregnant (if everything goes according to plan) and we would really utilize the A/C and viewing areas.
    Perhaps PF can help with this question???
