Dear Premma, Pooja, Bhavin and Deepak,
I would like to Thank all of you, and all the Rickshaw team again, for the tremendous support you gave before, during and even on my mum's extended trip.
We were deeply touched by Tanzanian spirit, by your hospitality, and by the beauty of the land itself! I have never before believed that this 'Africa fever' existed. That idea, that once you step on the soil of the oldest continent, something in you will feel deeply at home, genuinely alive, crazily free - and that you will be wanting to go back for more and more so much that at one point you will have withdrawal symptoms and you find yourself on the plane again. I thought it was a legend, a myth... and barely 3 months passed since I have come home. And I can't stop thinking back to Africa. I am glad our first experience have been with your help and hospitality, and hopefully it will not be our last.
Rickshaw Travels have been going out of their way to make our trip to Tanzania a memorable one. Right from the first moments of planning to the very last goodbye, they were supporting us, inspiring us and guiding us with great expertise - so that we could feel safe and care-free on our journey.
Thank you Rickshaw for your 'Hakuna matata” approach, we surely will never forget this trip.

The trip was absolutely a "once in a lifetime" experience.  We had the most amazing time and Richard (our driver/guide) was wonderful and patient. He even helped us when our car was stuck in the mud in the middle of our trip. This is just one example of the "above and beyond" service he provided. We are so thankful. We had the best time. We are honored that our father and his family are from this beautiful country.  Thank you for everything.

Rickshaw travels provides the ultimate vacation experience filled with adventure and wonder. Everything was perfect from the prepared lunches to the phenomenal guide.  You will not be disappointed.

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
Petra and Ulli

Hi Naz,

We are back from our long trip and still recovering from jet lag.

We had a wonderful trip and a fantastic time at the safari. Facilities at the Serena lodges were spectacular and the staff was very professional.  The driver was an expert and we rewarded him handsomely for the great care he took of us.  We saw the migration and even the rhinos, which are now rare. Weather was very pleasant. This trip was worth the money we paid for it and you took good care of our complicated arrangements.  

You went the extra mile to ensure we had a safe and enjoyable experience. Karim was very touched by your care and concern. He had no problems at all on his arrival at the Kilimanjaro airport.  It was his first safari and he was very impressed by the sights and the comforts. He said he will definitely go there again with friends.

Overall, the success of our safari was due largely to your efforts and we would like to thank you for the wonderful time we had.

We spent a week in Dubai and few days in London, in addition to the safari.

We would just like to thank Rickshaw Travels for their outstanding service, especially Andrea. He booked our wonderful holiday to Zanzibar. From the start of planning the trip till we came back, Andrea was always available to answer questions, assist with our needs and giving advice! Andrea is a real asset to the Rickshaw Team. It was an unforgettable holiday and you guys made it all happen! Asante sana!

Dear Aparna,

After returning safely back home, we wanted to thank you for well organizing our trip.

We enjoyed our time in Rwanda and would also like to express our thanks to Geom, our driver and tour guide, who was very attentive and knowledgeable.

If we will get any inquiries about Rwanda trips, we will certainly recommend Rickshaw Travels!

Kind regards from Zanzibar

Dear Naz, Jambo.

We are back from our wonderful holidays in Tanzania and getting back to our routine, which of course is always difficult when one has been away  enjoying for three weeks. 

Both Taj and I would like to thank you for arranging the safari side of our trip. It was just amazing and we both had a wonderful time. The memories that you have helped us create, will remain with us for a very long time. We really appreciated all your input, help and guidance. The safari was just unbelievable, except for the small hiccup in Moshi. The Serena's in Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro were great. Really good choices, thanks. Your office in Arusha provided us with an excellent driver, Sisti. He was very knowledgeable and an excellent spotter. He knew exactly where the animals were, especially the Big Five. He drove us to an area  where we were very lucky to witness a kill. It was just amazing to watch a pack of lions go after a zebra. No words can describe the feeling. On the one hand you feel sorry for the zebra while on the other hand, when you watch the lion cubs enjoying their meal, you feel happy.

Thank you once again for arranging a wonderful safari experience for us, especially for my wife Taj. This was something totally different for her because she had never been to Africa before. We will not hesitate to recommend your services to all our friends and relatives. Asante sana.

With best regards
