Why Chalkoko Birding and wildlife Tours?
The best and most reliable source of information is someone who has first hand experience on something. Even better than a guidebook, our past clients are a great and reliable source of information. Most of them have stayed in constant touch with us even after going back home and are willing to have their contacts given out to potential clients.
Chalkoko Birding and wildlife Tours scope is currently limited to Kenya. We prefer to focus on what we know and can do best. Our purpose and principle is to work with each client, family and group individually. We encourage our clients to discuss their expectations, budget etc., to be able to arrange a custom made safari just for you.
Our safaris depart daily with a minimum of 2 persons for lodge safaris and 4 persons for camping safaris. We do this in order fit our itineraries to your schedule. The camping safaris can and do also depart with minimum 2 persons at an added cost.
One of our tour consultants will take time to meet you at the start of your safari (whenever possible). This is so that you can be introduced to your tour guide/driver and also to go through the safari program with you, explaining what to expect while on the safari, provide background information and materials, discuss the dos and don'ts as well as answer any last minute questions that you may have.
Accommodation greatly depends on your budget. There are several types ranging from 5-star hotels and luxury tented camps to basic camping for those who want to 'rough it". Explorer Kenya Tours & Travel assists you in choosing these from the list but we provide the best for our clients regardless of the level or budget.
