Quite a lot,

If you expand first you go first in turn order, so hunt last and probably get least food. You are also in the worst position to pick new technologies, you pick something and anyone else can take it from you (or force you to take it).

If you expand last you will probably have to pay higher expansion costs as someone will have beaten you to it. You may also not be hunting in the right areas to take advantage of good technology cards when they appear.

Also if you leave you expansion until late in the games it costs more as the cost increases depending on the number of new clan members you place. So the cheapest expansion will be to place 2-3 new members per turn - but this will probably put you in first position will all the disadvantages that brings.
