Great safari experience with Beatus!

Written on: September 10, 2015   |   I visited in August 2015 My friend and I did a 2 day safari with Chels Travel & Tours company, visiting Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater and we had such a fantastic time! At first I was nervous booking the trip with Chels Travel as they are less well-known than some of the other bigger tour operators and I had heard horror stories from others about booking with fictional companies in Arusha. But the price was too tempting to miss out on and now I would not hesitate to book again.

Chels Travel is a small, independent company and as such are excellent at tailoring their tours to their individual clients needs. We were on a tight budget and Beatus organised the tour to stay within budget. He was very accommodating of our requests and questions ahead of the tour and on the safari itself he was a fountain of knowledge about the surrounding culture and wildlife. Having now been on a few safaris since, we know quite how excellent Beatus was as a guide / driver. He was a fantastic animal spotter as well as incredible knowledgeable which certainly added to the whole experience.

I would certainly recommend Beatus and Chels Travel and Tours to anyone looking to go on a safari in Northern Tanzania.

I had a 2 week trip, split between the Serengeti and Kilimanjaro, and had a fantastic experience. The staff at Chels are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and when we were not feeling well, incredibly caring. I would recommend this group without hesitation. read more
