"Fantastic African Safari Tour organized by Chalo Africa for my big birthday! Absolutely loved it!"
Just returned after a super fantastic safari tour organized by Chalo Africa! The team at Chalo Africa (Sangeeta and Smita) had been splendid at every step in every step while organizing the trip. We were travelling with small children (6 and 9) and it was to be our first Safari Trip. After understanding the brief on what we had in mind, Chalo Africa drew up a few itineraries which were cleverly designed. They had a good mix of theme parks with different offerings and features while at the same time keeping in mind that we were travelling with little children, so it would not be hectic. Although the various information provided by Chalo Africa team had plenty of details, Sangeeta and Smita were always around and prompt in answering all other questions related to Africa, including vaccinations, visas, safari car types, food, safety etc.
Besides an excellent travel plan, the pricing was also excellent as we compared with a few other quotes.
The excellent experience continued in our actual Safari trip to Kenya and Tanzania. We were welcomed by a super friendly guide (we had asked for a child friendly guide) and got the perfect one along with a super well set up Safari jeep. We had a great time seeing the animals and birds and the various landscapes. Different members of the family had expressed different wishes for the safari and each of them were fulfilled. We saw the big five at very close range and many more fantastic creatures from up very close. In lodges, we absolutely loved the Serena Sweetwaters (famous for Rhinos) and the Serena Lake Elementita (lots of flamingos). Of course, being in the Mara was exactly as we had African savannahs and we were very lucky to see the famous Wildebeest migration. In Tanzania, we loved the Ngorongoro crater and all the game trapped in it. We also enjoyed the variety of food across Serena lodges including wide selection of vegetarian options. I also loved my special birthday breakfast by the hippo pool in the Masai Mara!
All through the safari, the Chalo Africa team had created a WhatsApp group to keep in touch and also to give tips and news of animal movements which was super helpful. On a few occasions, when there was a doubt on kind of rooms booked or the days plan, it was very quickly sorted out to our satisfaction! Thank you Chalo Africa for an absolutely fantastic Safari experience! We already look forward to the next one. #A
