Unforgettable trip! Everything was perfectly planned and organised.

Ute did an amazing job planning our trip to the Okavango Delta and to Victoria Falls.
We pretty much left everything in her hands and she planned an unforgattable trip for us.
We stayed two nights at two different camps inside the Delta; the camps were in two different locations which gave us an opportunity to see different landscapes and animals.
After the Delta we went to Victoria Falls where we stayed at a great guest house.
Everything was perfectly arranged. It exceeded our expectations.

Great Safari. Everything went smoothly. Very professionally organized.

We are frequent travelers in Africa and all over the world. This was a very professionally organized trip by Roho Ya Chui. She interpret very well what were looking for during the preparation of the trip. Excellent camps and resort. Wright location for what we were looking for. Hotels, transfers, etc. everything work very fine and smoothly. The choice of camps was very good to excellent in terms of facilities, food, staff and location. Great 10 days photo safari in Kenya and Tanzania.

Ute did a fantastic job from start to finish

Ute did a fantastic job with our trip from arranging everything to helping us when our flight to Africa got delayed and we needed to make last minute changes. Even after a bag was lost and took another 24 hours to get to Nairobi, she figured out how to get the bag to our camp. We would gladly use Roho Ya Chui again.

Quickly responded to inquiries and did an excellent job matching our itinerary to our desires.

My husband and I just returned from the most spectacular trip we have ever taken: a 10 day Safari in Tanzania! Ute Sonnenberg gave us an itinierary and arranged accommodations that exceeded our expectations, going well beyond our stated focus to see elephants and the Migration and to learn about the animals and culture of Africa. Ute's attention to our desires, quick responses to inquiries, and accessibiliy throughout our tour was very much appreciated.
As we had never been to Africa, it was a little daunting to plan. Along with some research of my own, Ute helped us successfully manage the entire trip, from booking airlines to obtaining visas, to arranging a day lodge before our flight home. Although I must admit I never really had a comfort level with tipping guidelines....
The safari itself was absolutely amazing, in no small part due to our extraordinary guide, Hassan,with Simba Safaris. The company was well organized and efficiently operated. We always felt safe and that we were in good hands. But it was Hassan's passion and expert knowledge of animal behaviors, his knowledge of the country's people, as well as his warm personality, attentiveness to our interests and safety, and excellent driving skills that brought us up close and personal to the Africa we came to experience. This truly was the trip of a lifetime..... Asante sane to Ute, Simba Safaris, and Hassan for making it happen.

Best experience ever!

Overall the entire experience exceeded expectations! The booking and communications were both fluent and prompt & there were no concerns or queries upon arrival at Victoria Falls airport to start things off.

The first lodge Ilala was beautiful & such a great start. The staff & services were exceptional, and the food amazing. The free time here was easily filled up with tours and walking about the falls & we loved the relaxed nature.

The connection to Botswana / Chobe was seemingly effortless. Upon arrival at Bakwena Lodge we were treated like royalty. The location and level of service was outstanding. The food again was absolutely class! We had the honeymoon lodge arranged & this was like a dream. As soon as the staff knew it was our honeymoon they went even further out of their way to make things more special by service up an amazing intimate dinner by the water. The safari experiences were breathtaking, including the cruise along the Chobe River. All in all it was a dream experience.

The transfers & flight connections were again prompt & fluent. The next lodge at Machaba Camp on Khwai River lifted the bounds of amazingness even more! This place simply was out of an African dream! The service & food were that good that we both felt humbled. We have never stayed anywhere like this - just thinking about it gives me goosebumps! Imagine a luxury tent where you drift off to sleep to the sounds of hippos literally 30 metres from your pillow, and wake up to the chorus of bird life ( and more hippos!). The safari experiences were like nothing we had ever imagined - words simply do not do it justice. Machaba Camp is like a dream, this was the icing on our African honeymoon.

To conclude, we understand now how difficult arranging connections must be in Africa, but Ute @ Roho ya Chui made the whole experience seemless. It was definitely worth the money for the memories we now have. I would whole heartedly recommend booking a special safari experience through Roho ya Chui to receive a level of absolute class. Many thanks for reading to the end!

Wonderful experience

The communication with Roho Ya Chui was very good. They are very quickly to answer our questions and at the time you make contact via e-mail or WhatsApp they return to me. The service is the best. I don’t have any prior recomendation of that company but I confirm that they are serious and reliable. Everything was very good: the transfer, the Safari,,the lodge, the Guide. I recomend this company.

Excellent Service and Attention to Detail Throughout!

From my first contact with Ute at Roho Ya Chui I was impressed with her "can do" attitude and desire to help us have the best safari experience possible. At no stage during our holiday did her arrangements disappoint and I cannot speak highly enough of the accommodation selected for us and the transport arrangements between them all.

Once on safari we were blown away by the experience - it really was top notch and I can whole-heartedly recommend Roho to you - they really know how to arrange a brilliant holiday. There were too many highlights to record but if I was to make a recommendation, then staying the 3 nights in Machaba Camp, as we did, will make for a perfect stay - this camp surpassed all expectations in everything it did - I ran out of superlatives minutes after arriving there!

Thank you so much Roho and especially Ute - we hope to return with you again in a few years!

Everything went well and as agreed

It was very easy to arrange the safari, communication was quick, easy, and all questions were answered. And when the time for the safari itself arrived, everything went as planned.

As for Nottens Bush Camp itself, it's a great camp, with good rooms, good food and excellent service. But be aware that there are no electrical lights in the rooms, so they're very dark. I wish the bathrooms were more properly illuminated.

Friendly, Efficient and would use again

Ute gave excellent advice and dealt with all booking requirements following my requirements/choices. Safari itself at Kampara Southern Camp was fantastic and lived up to my expectations

We were extremely happy with the organised nature of the Botswana Safaris and Victoria Falls Tour.

Excellent services provided with absolute efficiency.
We travelled as a Family and enjoyed the game drives undertaken by one of the best trekkers.
The authentic nature of Safari was complemented by the Bushman Operated Tents in Okavango.
We also enjoyed our stay in Chobe River lodge which had a wonderful natural settings all around.
