Chacha Tours Africa Testimonials
I did a solo climb with Chacha and his team followed by a five day safari with my family in May/June, and from the start the whole experience was fantastic. Chacha is not only an experienced mountaineer, superb safari guide, and all-around good guy, he is the independent owner and operator of this company, which means he is fully dedicated to ensuring that his services will be to your satisfaction. From our very first email exchanges I could see that Chacha was sincere about providing the best possible experience at a very competitive price. He was prompt in answering all of my queries and extremely flexible in meeting my requests. He even provided me with some equipment I didn't have for the climb. Throughout our trip Chacha went out of his way to help make this one of the best vacation experiences I and my family have ever had....
We summited Kili in June 2015 with Philemon Chacha as our main guide on the Rongai route. He knows the mountain extremely well, he truly cares about each of his climbers and I can confirm that we still keep in contact from time to time. When we reached the crater rim, it was extremely cold and my nose was running from the cold, but Chacha wiped my nose and took such good care of me, I would not have been able to summit if it was not for his kind patience! His team is 100% trustworthy.
Awesome. Amazing. Wonderful. It has been the experience of my life. There are no words to explain what I would come back to and I will probably repeat. Chacha has managed to amaze me with his affection for animals, people and the environment, which he cares so fondly. He is happy with what he does, and I would not hesitate to live this experience with him again. Thank you very much, Chacha, you are truly a great person, you live and feel what you do. I am proud to have you as a guide and as a friend, just as your country should thank you for what you do for the animals and the people who live there. You are fantastic. A big hug from Ramon.
Arrived one week ago from Tanzania, and we only can have words of gratitude for Chacha and all his team. Our aim was to climb to Uhuru Peak, and contacted with Chacha Tours some months ago to plan it. Six days on Kilimanjaro Natural Park, sharing our days with the team that Chacha prepared for us, and we can assure, that we target the Uhuru Peak, thanks to all them: Lázaro, Daoudi, Simon, Daoudi II, Elias, and all other members of the team, that do the heavy work. Great job of all them: great guides (very good ones), excellent chef (we arranged for vegetarian menu, and everyday was quality and quantity vegetarian dishes), and very professional porters. Everyone of them, work hard to make our stay easy and comfortable, and allow us to achieve the Uhuru Peak.
I have already read some reviews about Chacha Africa, and I think I can not say anything new, except that I completely agree with all the good things that are said about him.
Chacha is the owner of his own company, and is 110% involved in providing the best possible service. We took a week trip, and the experience it was much better than I expected. The stay was perfectly organized, in very comfortable places, the food was fantastic, the safari amazing and the company unbeatable. He is a perfect guide, he gives confidence, he meets all the needs, he is very punctual, patient, kind, open, always in a good mood and he is always waiting for the experience to be the best possible and to the client's taste, even to carry out whims or unforeseen. I really feel that he is already a friend.
During the safari, he took care of us, fridge in the car with cold water, power strip with plugs adapted to charge the batteries of the camera or mobile, lifting roof to see everything perfectly, binoculars, book-bible with information and photos of all animals in color, comfortable seats, even amoxicillin ... Chacha drives with caution and calmly, and with his incredible sight he was spotting and pointing out the animals and telling us curiosities at the same time.
At the end of the trip we stayed a few days in Unguja, and Chacha also made sure that we had a great guide during the trips and the excursion we made there.
Anyway, I would go on another trip with Chacha Tours Africa with my eyes closed.
I recently hiked Kilimanjaro (via Machame route 6 days) with Chacha tours and it was AMAZING! I was a solo traveler, and was a bit nervous about traveling by myself, but Chacha made me feel completely comfortable and at ease about everything. Chacha is one of the most energetic and happy people you will ever meet and will make sure you have a great experience. Everyone on his team is very professional and will give you all the support you need to get you to the summit! I was very pleased with my overall experience and highly recommend Chacha!
I made the trek up Kilimanjaro in early January and it was an experience I will never forget. The team at ChaCha Tours is one reason for this. From the time of booking through to arriving back at the hotel after the climb I was most impressed. Our guide Emanuel and the entire crew are very knowledgeable, experienced, professional and fun to be around. I highly recommend ChaCha Tours if you’re thinking of trekking Kili.
Chacha and his team were always helpful and knew exactly what to do during the climb. They made both the days and nights enjoyable and I couldn't imagine doing the climb with anybody else! They were all fantastic, especially during the summit night when they made sure that all of us got to the top. Although the climb was difficult, Chacha always had a smile on his face and made it so much easier. I would 100% recommend climbing Kilimanjaro with Chacha!
