"Amazing trip-beautifully coordinated, great places to stay, knowledgeable guides & great communication"
We had an amazing time in Africa thanks to Chalo Africa. Multiple reasons why me and my family are thoroughly impressed with them:
1. Great communication and great patience : I atleast shared 100 emails with ChaloAfrica not because the plan was not clear from their side, but because my plan kept changing – both on the dates and the number of people who were joining me. However, Chalo Africa’s representatives were both very patient and accommodating plus also gave wonderful suggestions based on the different input size of the group. My parents were joining a bit late and it was a complex itinerary but through detailed communication, Chalo Africa made sure that it was very well co-ordinated. Also, they were genuinely interested in us having an amazing time and kept sharing well-thought about articles for us to read that can prepare us for the trip and also get us excited.
2. Stay Places : Our favorite part about the safari in Kenya were the conservancies which Chalo Africa team suggested and also partner with Porini Camps which are in the conservancies- the regular national parks are amazing – don’t get me wrong but staying in the conservancies is a really fun experience. First, we stayed in tented camps that are between the jungle – a hippo grazed right next to our tent one day and a bull elephant passed around 50 feet from us while we were having lunch. However, they keep you safe with guards who know the jungle really well. Also, in the conservancies you can do guided nature walks (we saw tons of giraffes, zebras and many other animals while walking an it is certainly a different feeling). Also, the food at Porini Camps was fantastic – here also, Chalo Africa had communicated our dietary preferences really well and it was all really well taken care of.
3. Invested in your trip : Chalo Africa was really invested in our trip and also created a What’s App group with all their representatives in it so that they can help answer any question we have right from the time we left our home country to the time we came back. This was really helpful as we could ask anything on What’s App and they were very prompt to reply – great service.
4. Partnership with great camps and guides : As mentioned, Chalo Africa partnered with Porini Camps and we loved it. Also, the guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and made sure that they catered to every member of the family. Good guides and camps are necessary for having a good experience and Chalo Africa made sure we got the best.
Overall, I highly recommend Chalo Africa for their great service – they put in a lot of effort to make sure you have the best time. I have traveled around the world quite a bit but Kenya trip was extra-special all thanks to Chalo Africa.
