I have been to Africa three times - Kenya, Zambia, Namibia and Tanzania. Each time I went with Chaz Tours and Travel and I would definitely use them again. Each experience was amazing in its own right. In Kenya we visited the Maasai Mara, in Zambia South Luanga and Kafue and in Tanzania, Namiri Plains, The Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. In each location the accommodation was excellent, the guides both knowledgeable and friendly and the food superb. On both the Zambia and Tanzania trips we were escorted by James who did his utmost to make the visits enjoyable and memorable. His passion for Africa and its wildlife is infectious. Visiting Africa was a childhood dream for me and sometimes your dream doesn't match with reality however, each of my Chaz Tours and Travel holidays not only brought my childhood dreams to life but far exceeded any of my expectations. James will do everything he can to make your safari special even tailor making activities to suit your needs. When I went to Zambia I was recovering from two hip operations and James made sure that all my needs were catered for. I have no hesitation in recommending Chaz Tours and Travel for your African adventure. I used Chaz Tours and Travel Four years in a row from 2013 to 2017 and I will be using them again in 2018.

Chaz Tours and travel was a once in a lifetime experience. While there are other high-end safari options out there, I felt that Chaz Tours and travel was the best bang-for-your-buck option out there. While going through the booking process, Mr. Martin (the manager), was extremely quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. After being reassured of the itinerary for our 3-day Masai Mara safari, we went ahead and placed our deposit a few weeks before we were scheduled to be in Kenya. Once we arrived in Nairobi me and Kenyan wife from our long flight from the USA, we were picked up by Chaz Tours and travel - James (driver) and Jack(cook) - at our Bed and Breakfast. From there, we departed on the 6 hour journey to Masai Mara. Along the way, we stopped at various James and jack knew all the answers to our questions as well. Arriving at our camp before dinner, we had a short game drive in Masai Mara.James was quick to radio other drivers (might have been 7 other drivers) to see where all the animals were. He eventually caught wind of a lion and lioness together, so we headed there and saw these majestic animals. While we were on the drive, Jack was busy at camp cooking up a delicious dinner meal. The dinner meals typically consisted of beef, a vegetable, bread, water, coffee and tea. While breakfast was usually a spanish omelet, juice, potatoes, coffee and tea. Jack cooking is amazing and kept us well nourished throughout the safari. The following days consisted of more game drives where we went all over Masai Mara, close to the Tanzania border, the Mara River, and much more. All while passing thousands of zebras and wildebeests, buffalos, giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, and more. There were times when I caught myself smiling from how amazing this experience was. Book with the confidence knowing that you will have an amazing time. I cannot recommend Chaz Tours and Travel enough.

We recently went a 10-day safari throughout Kenya and Tanzania with Chaz Tours and travel. We had the most amazing time. From Day 1, the staff helped us create the perfect tour package to cover everything we wanted to, and maintained very quick/efficient communication leading up to our arrival. Our guide James was amazing and we saw dozens and dozens of animals very up close and personal. Our entire experience was amazing, and even though it was a budget Tour, we truly felt we had the best possible experience.I would recommend this company to anyone travelling through Kenya and Tanzania.

In October 2017 Chaz Tours and Travel brought out a quote within two hours for a trip starting the following day. Very efficient. The 4 days trip in Kenya Masai Mara and 6 Days in Etosha Namibia was a success and Martin, the owner of the company, was our driver and guide. My partner and I really enjoyed his company. Very pleasant to travel with. We then booked another safari with them for four days, and it was again a perfect trip. Next year we want to return to Kenya to visit the Amboseli, Samburu, Lake Nakuru and in Namibia on the very north, and if so we surely will contact Chaz Tours and Travel again. We recommend this company wholeheartedly for all your safaris in Kenya and Namibia. It could not have been better. It was really nice experience with Chaz Tours and Travel at Etosha Namibia and Kenya Masai Mara.

I went on a budget safari with Chaz Tours and Travel in October and I have already recommended the company to all my colleagues in Kenya! I went on the five-days budget safari to Maasai Mara/Lake Nakuru. Saw pretty much everything there is to see, and on the third day heading towards Nakuru, we stopped for a fun boat tour of Lake Naivasha (extra cost Ksh1500). You get your money's worth from the budget camps and hotels - very clean with hot water and comfortable beds. Couldn't have asked for anything more at the price I was paying during peak season. My guide James was very experienced and incredibly knowledgeble. James knows everything there is to know about game and did everything he could to bring us to see the Big 5. We saw tons of lions prides, elephants, rhinos, and a cheetah. He worked hard, solved minor logistical problems that came up, and managed our time effectively. Most importantly he was a safe driver over the long distances. Ask for him if you go on a safari with Chaz Tours and Travel! Finally, the service from the Chaz Tours and Travel office in Nairobi was excellent. I had already been in Nairobi before booking, but full transportation was provided to and from my hostel, and I was even offered transportation back to the airport. I have to personally thank Martin at the office for dealing with everything that i asked for and making my booking process so smooth! I recommend Chaz Tours and Travel to anyone looking for a safari in Kenya.

Paul and Suzy led a phenomenal tour of Namibia. Having wanted to to visit since college 10 years ago, my expectations were high. The reality was so much better than anything I could imagine. The Namib Desert and sand dunes were spectacular. The sunrise balloon ride and breakfast simply unforgettable. For any geology buffs, the desert landscape, fault lines, rock layers and topography make this a visual paradise. The animals were amazing and everywhere. For most of us, the highlight was actually to witness a leopard stalk and kill in action. This event, unexpected and rare, was a dramatic and powerful reminder of the food chain in action. I'll be back

We went on the four day budget safari to Masai Mara/Lake Nakuru. Saw pretty much everything there is to see, and on the third day heading towards Nakuru, we stopped for a fun boat tour of Lake Naivasha (extra cost Ksh1500). We get our money's worth from the budget camps and hotels - very clean with hot water and comfortable beds. We couldn't have asked for anything more at the price we were paying during peak season. NB we would like to do the desert safari with Chaz Tours and Travel in Namibia where they also operate.

One of our great safaris. The package was superbly designed and the element of excitement and surprise not knowing what a new park has to offer us the next day and what the evening stop over lodge has to offer. A truly unique experience that everyone must try.

James worked very closely with my husband and me to customize our first safari to ensure we experienced exactly what we wanted within our budget. Our safari was fantastic! from beginning to end, everything aspect of the trip through Kenya and Tanzania across the Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Masai Mara was seamless, breathtaking, fun, educational and memorable. The Chaz Tours and Travel team including Martin and Joseph, our guides, were consummate professionals, incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a joy to be with. Part of what made our experience so fantastic was that Chaz Tours and Travel took care of all the details. They guided us as far as what to pack, how much our luggage should weigh, what vaccines to take, etc. Chaz Tours and Travel handled all our our lodging, transportation on air and land, meals, etc. We were amazed at the level of service everywhere we went. We traveled in luxury, even and especially at the tented camp. We experienced the most unforgettable landscapes, animals, people and cultures. If you are dreaming of a safari, you should definitely choose Chaz Tours and Travel! P.S. We went at the end of October and there were no mosquitoes and saw lots of baby animals and the wildebeest/zebra migration!

My husband and I just completed a 5 day 4 night to Amboseli, Lake Naivasha, and Masai Mara game drive. The rain was off and on so we were so glad that we upgraded to the land cruiser. James was our driver and he was awesome. He called us later and made sure the rest of our time in Kenya was enjoyable. He also stopped along the route to let us taste roasted corn and other Kenyan foods. Our favorite place to stay was in Lake Naivasha and Masai Mara. The place we stayed at in Amboseli had sooo many bugs that were attracted to the lights at night but the lodge was still very beautiful. Upgrade to luxury accommodations if you have the opportunity because you will be so close to all the game drives. Can't wait to visit again during dry season in the hopes that we see many more animals.
