Pabbakrishnamohan's 8 days trip to AfricaWhat a trip this was! I'm so glad we chose Plan Your Destination on Travel Triangle. We were a group of 5 and we all had an amazing time. Kenya is a beautiful place and to enjoy that beauty you need people who know the place and also know your requirements. Mr.Sandeep did a wonderful job of communicating everything to us beforehand and taking care of our requirements. Our tour guide Antony was also so much fun to be with throughout our trip. He was fantastic at finding the animals and taking us to them. We saw a faceoff between cheetahs and hyneas and a lion hunt in Masai Mara. The places we stayed also were very good except for one place in Masai which was a bit far from the game drive but otherwise everything was so perfect. Naivasha hands down is the best part of the whole trip. It was for me like a paradise on Earth with all the animals in one place and we walking among them like it's our home too. For the whole time I was there I felt like I was in a magical land which it is actually! A trip to Kenya without Naivasha is definitely incomplete.
Vinay's 7 days trip to AfricaIt was an amazing trip. Many thanks to Sandeep and Plan your Destinations for giving us such a memorable vacation. Everything was arranged seamlessly. We totally totally loved it!!! Great hotel stays at Elementaita and Amboseli. Very friendly guide cum driver (Anthony) throughout.
Siddhartha's 6 days trip to AfricaVery well organized trip with good focus on customer. Excellent guide. Very polite and gave us a tremendous experience at the safari. Great driving skills and precautions taken at every step. Only problem was on return when the car broke down and we missed our elephant orphanage trip. Could have arranged an alternate vehicle quickly. Overall a very good experience. Safari at Masai Mara and Lake Nakuru.
Naveen's 10 days trip to AfricaVery well managed and planned. Driver/guide was perfect. Made sure we get the full experience. The game drives and overall experience of kenya was amazing
Divya's 7 days trip to AfricaHad a great time.. Sunny and team were helpful through out the tour and were readily available for providinf inatant suggestions and add ons. Keep it up guys A lot in fact-bunjee jumping/boulders beach/Game drive/tsisigama national park tour / cape town recourse were incredible
Vk's 11 days trip to AfricaHotels were of our choice so why you want a rating for our choice Masai Mara cheetah hunt
Kavita's 7 days trip to AfricaThe trip was overall exciting and great.it was a good season and weather to travel...the safari in Masai Mara was excellent... very well planned and fun. Lake Nakuru was disappointing as my advice is that it can be easily skipped. Ambosili was just ok. The travel time and roads suck. The driver had no clue of the time taken from one destination to the other. ....it takes 8 hours from one to the other because of the condition of the roads . We had specifically asked for a safari van with AC....a van was given in which the AC WAS NOT WORKING. The driver to our surprise decided to take his family along in the van....our privacy went out of the window. There was poor coordination between the Indian agent and the Kenyan counterpart. The trip was booked through travel triangle but they conveniently put us on to the agent and disowned us after collecting the money. Service tax was added at the last moment and was not part of the quote.
Ratan Kumar Mondal
Ratan's 7 days trip to AfricaLet me write what went wrong first: 1. At Nairobi Airport, none was there at the meet and greet. We were completely helpless when the locals offered help. They called and even after that, it took 10 minutes for us to meet the person. 2. Similar thing happened in Mombasa, the driver was their at the airport but was not holding a plackard. We used our prior experience and requested a local person to call. 3. The safari van was pathetic. There were other safari vans which I visited and found them in a much better condition. This is where we spent most of our time in the first 5 days and the vehicle was of very poor condition. This is why I have given a rating of 2. Now the good parts: 1. David, our driver, was punctual, knowledgeable and a very good guide. We loved his company. 2. Anshul and Chander from Safari trails were constantly in touch with us whenever possible. They also helped me whenever I needed anything. 3. All the hotels except Amber hotel at Nairobi was superb. Rooms, food, and accessibility were the best in all of them.
Udit's 14 days trip to Africathe trip was overall very well planned besides some minor glitches. the travel agent did a very good job. but we are highlighting the issues we faced such that they are be used for future bookings and improvization of services: 1. on our arrival the cab was not there to pick us up at the airport 2. the hotel at cape town was in a really bad locality and very far from the city center 3. the car provided was in a really bad state and the bookings were such that it was difficult to change our booking
Sandeep's 12 days trip to AfricaThe services and humility of Mr. Manoj from Besten Tours added the dimensions essential for the International Travel.
