Living and loving Africa since 1980
Sangeeta S. Prasad
The Africa Guru and Safarista
As an avid safari-goer herself, Sangeeta knows first-hand the extensive research and meticulous planning that goes into the making of a memorable safari. Sangeeta has spent the last several years learning and acquiring in-depth knowledge about the parks, people and wildlife of Africa through her travels to Chad, Gabon, Tanzania, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Kenya, South Africa and more! She is constantly learning via books, TV and movies, but most of all through the personal interactions and friendships she has forged with many Africaphiles over the years.
It is this passion for Africa, her wide-ranging contacts within Africa and CA’s sole focus on Africa that sets us apart from other travel companies. Sangeeta looks forward to sharing and communicating her enthusiasm with Chalo Africa’s guests and to continue learning about this fascinating continent.
She resides in the Washington D.C. area of the United States.

Some people have a passion for art, others for sports, some are foodies. Malvika is a travel junkie. Getting the best deal at that luxury hotel, or the best site for that camping expedition gives her a high just a few other things can equal.
She cut her teeth at Jetair, then worked with TUI and then worked with Kuoni. A total of 10 years of solid blue chip experience. Getting a sense of exactly what clients want and then delivering it is her forte.
So, you can enjoy that spectacular sunrise, or that once in a lifetime experience of being in a hot air balloon floating languorously getting a panoramic view of the wildebeest, without worrying about all the myriad things that go into giving you the experience of a lifetime.
Malvika resides in Mumbai, India.
