We found Chief Tours while researching our Lemosho trek up Kilimanjaro. While training at home, my wife experienced an injury and we were not able to continue with the trek. However, Adidas was kind enough to transfer our deposit to a 5-day safari tour and we are so glad we did! It was an experience of a lifetime. Our driver, Shirima, was incredibly knowledgeable, went above and beyond to show us the best of the parks, and was just a genuinely nice guy! The only thing as wonderful as the safari experience was getting to know Shirima!
The safari itself took us through 4 parks, each unique in their own way. We saw countless animals and seeing them in their natural habitat was surreal. Shirima was able to spot things we couldn't possibly have seen. (Lions, elephants, wildebeest, buffalo, cheetahs, zebra, giraffes, baboons, and we were lucky to see 5 of the hard to spot leopards!)
We were lucky enough to be in the Serengeti as the 'great migration' of wildebeests were taking place! It was amazing to see hundreds of thousands of them stampede together in herds through the plains. Truly amazing nature.
The accommodations were comfortable, clean, safe, and to stay within the Serengeti was an experience in itself with all the amazing sounds you hear at night! The food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner was delicious and also plenty of food!
We compared prices for both the trek and safaris with many other tour companies and Chief Tours was always the better price by a significant amount.
Our experience with Chief Tours from beginning to end was a wonderful, professional, safe and inspirational one. We highly recommend Adidas and his team for your trekking or safari needs!
