Lowest security deposit for Afrika overland

I'm planning a Afrika overland trip and I'm now figuring out what is the best country to get a carnet the passage from. I'm from the Netherlands but live in Portugal and also have a Bulgarian company. So there's some options. I was wondering if the security deposit that needs to be paid to travel Afrika differs from country to country or if it's all the same? I know that the price for the carnet itself can differ, but it seems that different countries also ask for different security deposits.
Is anyone familiar with these differences?

Thanks for your interest!
