I just got back from a 2 week trip, booked through Charlie's Travels. All I can say it: fan-tas-tic! Our safari and our hike through the Loita Hills were an amazing adventure. We also did a motorcycle trip through Magadi, which was beyond my expectations. Riding with a group of galloping giraffes is really something I never expected to do. The trip showed me how beautiful Kenya and it's people are. Highly recommended!
I have had the most wonderful experience while travelling through Kenya with Charlie's Travels. I've seen so many beautiful vistas, so many wonderful animals, met so many lovely people; it is almost undoable to write down how great the trip was. I can wholeheartedly advise anyone to book a trip with this lovely, wonderful travel agency.

Wat een fantastische reis.Als je van avontuur, cultuur en wilde dieren houdt, dan zit je bij Charlie's goed. Nooit had ik durven dromen zoveel dieren, van zo dichtbij te zien.Met als kers op de taart de 'Great Migration' van de wildebeesten.Maar ook het zien van struisvogels in volle snelheid op de motor was adembenemend gaaf. De Massai zijn uiterst vriendelijk en weten veel te vertellen over hun omgeving. Zij zorgen er voor dat je alle dieren ziet, die je mag verwachten. De landschappen zijn spectaculair en wisselen continu. In combinatie van regen en zon is de horizon elke keer een plaatje om te zien. In het stedelijke deel is veel te zien en te beleven. Als je er voor open staat, kun je mooie verhalen uitwisselen met de Kenyanen. Zij staan er in ieder geval voor open. Ik was nog lang aan het nagenieten toen de reis ten einde kwam. Charlie's heeft goed de beleving kun vatten in een mooi programma. Ga ervoor zou ik zeggen, je weet niet wat je mist.Floor Vredenborg

We had an amazing experience going to Kenya and Zanzibar for our honeymoon. Charlies Travels arranged everything marvelously. Lisa is reliable, friendly and has good ideas. We especially loved Kenya because we had many adventures and got a peek into the live of the locals. The bike safari was our favourite, because we felt free and were surrounded by beautiful animals. Although having a sleepover with a Massai family in the middle of nowhere after an exciting motorride is a close second. If you have the chance, bring some extra clothes to donate. In Zanzibar we mostly relaxed and enjoyed the pole pole life. Thanks for making our honeymoon so awesome!

I recently had the pleasure of touring Kenya with Charle's Travels Company, and I must say it was an unforgettable experience. From the moment I booked my trip until the day I returned, they provided exceptional service and treated me like a valued client. One of the highlights was visiting Karunguru Coffee and Tour Ltd, where I had the opportunity to learn about coffee production and indulge in their farm-produced coffee. It was truly the best coffee I have ever tasted. I wholeheartedly recommend Charle's Travels Company to any tourist visiting Kenya, as well as Karunguru Coffee and Tour. They exceeded my expectations in every way

I think it's fair to say that this was the most special trip of our lives!Together with Charlie's Travels my boyfriend and I organized a 16 day trip to Kenya. We never worked with an agency before but I loved it. The way it was all presented to us was already half the fun & the different options they suggested seemed never ending. One amazing accommodation or once in a lifetime experience after another! I'm talking elephants right in front of your balcony, a breakfast in the middle of the bush or a super exciting night game drive, to name a few.The whole journey ran super smooth & every person we were linked to through Charlie's was just lovely! I would highly recommend booking with them. Thanks so much, Lys & Brenda, for a most wonderful time in Kenya!

Wij hebben afgelopen zomer een fantastische reis door Kenia gemaakt met Charlies Travels. Een échte onvergetelijke huwelijksreis. Er is heel goed naar onze wensen geluisterd: Écht Afrika zien, geen hordes toeristen, het hoeft niet super-de-luxe, maar het is wel onze huwelijksreis. In een gave 4x4 huurauto zijn we naar Mount Kenya gereden waar we onwijs mooie watervallen gespot hebben tijdens het hiken. Daarna naar Lake Naivasha & Hells gate gereden waar we safari's deden ter boot en fiets(!). Dit was een heel avontuur tussen de buffels door! Vervolgens reden we door naar Masai Mara voor een Safari met hoofdletter S waar we onwijs veel prachtige dieren hebben kunnen zien, waaronder zelfs een stukje van de River crossings van de Great Migration.Toen was het tijd om de heuvels van Champagne Ridge te trotseren in onze auto. Een prachtige plek om écht even tot rust te komen en even niets te hoeven. Ten slotte zijn we met de auto naar Amboseli gereden waar we een laatste safari gedaan hebben: zelfrijdend op de motor! Daarna hebben we onze geliefde auto ingeleverd en zijn we met de trein naar de kust gegaan. In Watamu hebben we de prachtige onderwaterwereld mogen bewonderen tijdens een aantal prachtige duiken. Na het duiken konden we aanschuiven in de meest leuke, hippe en lekkere restaurantjes van het stadje.Tijdens de gehele reis zijn we verwend met prachtige (&en zeer schone!!) accommodaties. Iedere keer was het weer een cadeautje om te zien waar we weer aangekomen waren. Overal was het eten lekker, het personeel en de lokale bevolking zeer vriendelijk en was er een fijne sfeer! Ook het, bijna dagelijkse, contact met Charlies Travels verliep erg prettig. De lijntjes waren kort en hulp stond altijd klaar.

Unfortunately, on the 29th of December last year, we had to say goodbye to Charles. Charles, known to many as Charlie, was the father of our company, Charlie’s Travels. Many know him as the adventurer who drove through Africa on his motorcycle to discover new places for all his future clients. This loss deeply affects us. It’s a wound that won’t heal quickly. However, his legacy will continue, and we at Charlie’s Travels are carrying on his purpose and mission. To fulfil his dream, his mission.

What does this mean for you as a customer? We are continuing with the organisation, as this is what Charles would’ve wanted. So, you can still book, continue, and experience your journey through Charlie’s Travels, just as you’ve always been used to.
