"Sangeeta has the patience of a saint and made our first family Kenyan safari the trip of a lifetime!"
I have wanted to go on a safari for 24.5 years and decided it was time. After deciding on Kenya, I reached out to about 8 different safari operators. Two gave me what I had asked for but only Sangeeta really focused on my biggest concern- keeping our our teens, 13 and 15, engaged . She provided a customized 2 week safari for us that provided activities for the children for the first 4 nights in addition to game drives for the remaining safari.
Our first stop was to be Sosian, and this had to be changed due to regional instability. She was immediately responsive and we were able to change our lodging to the Sanctuary at Ol Lentillle, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Here we visited a school, did a camel safari, atv rides and our absolute favorite, a village visit. After, we moved on to small tented camps in conservancies at Kicheche Laikipia for 3 nights and then Kicheche Mara for the final 4 nights. They were all teen friendly camps and our children were included in meal time conversations. She specifically requested guides that would work well with our family. She also made sure we had reservations at the Rhino Sanctuary which other guests had to miss out on because it was fully reserved.
Sangeeta was amazingly responsive to my many emails and phone calls. Honestly, it was our first 2 or 3 calls that made me decide to choose Chalo Africa. She really listened to my wants and the end result was a trip that was better than we ever could have hoped. We all agree it was our best trip yet. Thanks so much Sangeeta and the Chalo Africa team.
