WHY RICKSHAW?

The Rickshaw Travel Group ("Rickshaw Travels") was founded in May 1988. From our humble beginnings as a small travel agency, we have grown and expanded into several countries and today have 28 years of experience in the travel business, both corporate and leisure... read more .

The safari was the main purpose for the trip and the experience was tremendous. We saw thousands of wildebeest, hundreds of zebra, several species of antelope, elephants, giraffe, hyena, cheetah, lions and on and on.  It was incredible. 

Rickshaw Travels from Toronto was in charge of organizing our vacation including the safari and our extensions into Vic Falls and Cape Town. Naz was our agent and her assistance was invaluable.  Her experience and advice helped to make this the trip of a lifetime. Our driver/guide Boniface was very knowledgeable of everything that walked, flew, swam or slithered.  He kept us informed and entertained for 7 days as we bumped and bounced along the dusty Serengeti roads, stopping often for photo opportunities.  Boniface really did make our safari everything we hoped it would be and more.

All our flights, airport transfers and day tours were arranged for us so we didn’t have to worry about hailing cabs, booking flights etc. I would highly recommend Naz and Rickshaw Travels.

My wife and I were looking to go somewhere special for our 10 year anniversary and having used Rickshaw Travel in the past we entrusted Bhavin to help us. He was so quick in getting a number of options based on our extensive criteria and limited budget. We couldn't believe he found us an amazing deal in Mauritius which he arranged flawlessly. The flights were booked with a bassinet for our daughter and the luxurious Outrigger hotel we'd selected surpassed all our expectations. The process was effortless and so convenient giving our hectic lifestyle with a young family.

Bhavin even managed to talk the hotel into giving us an upgrade and anniversary gifts complimentary which was a lovely touch. Our room over looked the South Coast of Mauritius and it had an amazing view.  

Thank you Rickshaw Travel and Bhavin for a holiday we will never forget. We look forward to you booking our holidays for next year.

Hi Bhavin,
 
i want to say thank you for the perfect organisation for our trip to Tansania. It was our first trip to Afrika and our first Safari and we are very happy that we have done it with Rickshaw Travels.
 
We live in Germany and especially Bhavin from the U.K. called and advised me a lot concerning our travel intentions. He booked the Selous Serena Camp for us and organised the in and outcoming flights from Dar -Selous-Sansibar.
 
At our arrival in Dar we went to the office of rickshaw travel and there the staff and ecspecially Andrea took care of us .All of them were very friendly and helpful.
 
The lodge in Selous was georgious,the manager elliot and the rest of the staff was looking after us like "v.i.p." people.  It was wonderful and the treatment and service amazing!!! Even the food was like in a five star hotel. During the safari we saw all the animals (our ranger made sure that we saw all of them,he was very ambitious) .It was such a nice experience and adventure. For sure it was not our last trip to Afrika and our last safari.
 
I will recommend Rickshaw Travels to all my friends and family because of their excellent service.
 
Best regards

A massive thank you to Bhavin and his team on the ground in Zanzibar. You provided a fantastic service by coordinating the transportation of all our wedding guests from the airport to the resort and then back again. The guided tours which were also organized for our guests were thoroughly enjoyed and very well planned. In total, over 100 journeys were organized and to say we were amazed at the professionalism of the team is an understatement. Thank you again to everybody at Rickshaw Travels for your hard work and patience and for making sure that the whole process ran so smoothly.

Hi Lavina,

I had dinner last night with my clients and they told me all about their trip.  They were over the moon happy with the service from Rickshaw.  They explained how they never had to worry about their driver being late or not there, and during the Ocean Blue safari, they were the only ones with towels because no one else knew to rent or bring towels.  And even on the boat ride back, before they docked, the boat driver pointed to their driver and let them know their driver was there.  They said it was like they were much better taken care of than the rest of the tourists they travelled with.

Our business relationship fits exceptionally well together because we go above and beyond on our side as well.  Because we are a boutique and don’t have huge numbers of clients, we can treat them special.  For example, Colman took them to his family farm in Marangu for a special lunch and arranged local Chaga dancers.  All in all, they were happy beyond their expectations, including with the services Rickshaw provided, so I can’t thank you enough.  We will certainly continue to work together!  Thanks so much!  

All the best,

Chris Kopp

I would like to say a HUGE thank you too my friend Naz and her organization for a wonderful day in Nairobi. We went on a Safari where we saw Lions, Zebras, Rhinos, Giraffes ... then to the Elephant Orphanage and kissing Giraffes. Peter and John were amazing tour guides and very accommodating to the needs of our team. I would highly recommend Rickshaw Travels  - we had only one day and it was the most amazing day

This was our second time we used Rickshaw travels. Naz who is a representative for the company in Toronto is a true professional. She was always quick to clarify any inquiries regarding the details of our trip, all transfers, flights and accommodations.

Every small aspect of our trip was discussed including excess luggage costs etc. She organized a great travel programme and everything went to plan. I wouldn't hesitate a second in recommending Rickshaw travel. They are very professional and experienced. Their service is excellent and the staff is very helpful. And above all they provided us with an excellent driver for our African Safari.

Our driver Joseph truly made our trip memorable. He captures extremely well the expectations of the client and delivers as best as possible. We also appreciate his flexibility in finetuning the programme according to our wishes. He was always pleasant in interaction, even at the end of busy game drive days. One thing we must say that he was very respectful and he treated us like his family. A big THANK YOU to all staff of Rickshaw travel! Can't wait to plan more trips with you guys!!!

Dear Gina! 

My stay at White sands Beach Resort-Tanzania was the best hotel experience I have ever had. We stayed at White sands beach Resort  for 4days on our honeymoon.  The facilities were immaculate, and the service was unlike anything I imagined . 

We hope next time we will come to u again to help us discovering new places! 

Thanks alot.

After several attempts to schedule a tour using other companies and services, we, quite by accident, walked into the Rickshaw office in Dar es Salaam.  Jennifer answered the questions we did not even know we had.  She arranged all aspects of our trip efficiently.

Our driver/guide Richard was outstanding. His knowledge and demeanor were superb. All tours and travel were executed safely and on time. He really made the difference in our trip. The quality and value of the service would be hard to find in my home country, let alone in Africa.

Thank you for everything.
