We are proud of being a small company; this allows us to provide a high quality, very personalised service. Over the years we have had the pleasure of arranging holidays for some wonderful people and some of them have been kind enough to write or to call and thank us. This means everything to us and we appreciate it. We have copied a few of these kind messages below.


Holiday to Mauritius 5 Stars.

I am a huge fan of Chaka Travel! When I booked with Diane I was really impressed with her attention to detail and her determination to make my budget go as far as possible. She is constantly monitoring the market and keeping up to date with what’s happening in the destinations in terms of activities and accommodation. I have recommended her to a number of friends who were booking trips and honeymoons and they all came back to say ‘Diane rocks!.’ She puts together clever itineraries thanks to her fabulous knowledge base and she is just wonderful to deal with!


What can I say!!!! We had the most amazing time. Everything was perfect. The staff couldn't be more helpful on our day. The food on our wedding was amazing. Thank you Diane for all your help over the past year or so, you have been very helpful and fast in getting back to us with information :) Many thanks.

Karen - Wedding in Mauritius, Pointe aux Biches Hotel


Had a lovely time thanks for organising it all. We were upgraded to a villa which was lovely. Golf courses were great and Legends beautiful with removal of some trees. Hotel lovely as ever, few issues with slow bar service but management were trying to address this. We hope to go again June 2018 so will contact you in the near future. Once again thank you.

Fiona, general holiday at Belle Mare Plage


I just wanted to say that the wedding was fantastic. The hotel staff- particularly a chap called David- were exceptional in their organisation of the wedding. It was a day and a holiday to remember. Many thanks.

Kathryn Lumb, Mauritius


Hi Zim and Stuart, Absolutely stunning!!! We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be back there in the future. Thanks so much for all your efforts in making it such a great holiday. The pool, food, service,room (we were upgraded to a sea view- thanks for that Zim) etc. etc....were just exceptional and the amount of little touches the hotel did to make our stay special was great- food in our room when we arrived late on the 1st evening, letting us stay in the room until 4pm on the day we checked out and when we did check out Philippe took us for a drink at the bar and chatted to us for an hour or so and I know how busy he is. These are just a few of the many things the hotel did and as I say we will be back and will certainly recommend it to anyone. Thanks again guys for a awesome holiday. best wishes, Ralph and Sarah

Aphrodite Hills, Cyprus


Just a quick note to say thank you. We had a fabulous time ... Once again, many thanks for all your help. The service and advice you provided was really excellent. Both of us are really impressed and will definitely contact you again in future for similar type holidays.

I&G J


Hi Mark,Thank you for organising another wonderful holiday for us. Everything went smoothly and Tangjung Rhu Langkawi is awesome. The two golf courses we played were great and very different. Datai Bay is fabulous but hard (straight and accurate required) Gunung Raya was a lot more forgiving in that there was room for error. We played them both a few times and loved it. (Although my golf was poor ~ embarassingly poor. Think I was missing the Scottish wind:))))

Mrs M Mac


Dear Mark, Thank you for arranging such a super holiday. It couldn’t have been better. Organisation was perfect, hope to experience this type of holiday again in the future.

Jean T


Thank you for a fantastic holiday and golf tour. We have both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves predominantly the company, we have made some very good friends, we have had great fun, (too much to drink) but a wonderful holiday. Mauritius is beautiful. To have won is an honour, it was very close but we came for the company and everyone on the tour is lovely. The golf and the hotel staff are very very lovely. Thank you Dave and Angie Peak

Just to say Many Many thanks for our tickets and itinerary which we received over the weekend. As already mentioned your service has been excellent and we cannot thank you enough for your help and efficiency arranging our honeymoon. Kindest Regards Janine

Honeymoon in Mauritius


"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your expertise in helping us to book the most perfect honeymoon. Mauritius was beautiful, and the Heritage Awali really was what dreams are made of!" Ali

Heritage Awali 2013


Chaka travel were fabulous from the moment we first got in touch about a honeymoon until we stepped of the plane back at home! The service was much more personal than if we’d booked through a larger chain of travel agents. We had the honeymoon of our dreams!! We couldn’t reccommend the Heritage Awali Resort enough to anyone thinking of going! The staff, rooms, hotel, activities, food all exceeded our expectations! To be known by name by all the staff from day 1 made us feel so welcome & they just couldn’t do enough for us! We will definately be back someday! We had the the bonus of spending the last two nights of honeymoon in the new Tamarina hotel! Again staff,food,rooms were all fab although at was alot quieter than the Heritage Awali! But just as enjoyable! Thanks to Jen from Chaka Travel for arranging all the transfers etc, we didn’t need to worry about a thing! A visit to The nature park casela is a must!! Walking with lions, rope bridge, zip lines & quad bike safari was definately the highlight of our honeymoon! A big thanks to Gerard (Chaka travel) for inviting us along that day! :) We would have had a perfect honeymoon in Mauritius but the extra lengths the Chaka travel staff went to while we were away made it even more memorable! We will be recommending Chaka travel to others & we will definately be using them again! :) Carolyn & steven McKay

The Heritage Awali in July


WOW was my immediate reaction when we arrived on Saturday in Mauritius, and as I walked into the Truo Aux Biches resort I felt I had arrived in Paradise. It was a stunning sight, and as you also mentioned the weather was simply perfect. The experience we had was one we will treasure for a lifetime, and I can only thank you for all you superb efforts, from booking, to advice, everything you suggested was exactly as you said and much more. Jay & Priti Bassi J

Truo Aux Biches July 2013


Thank you and may I say how helpful and patient you have been, it has been a great experience to have someone attentive with nothing being too much trouble. I generally go somewhere worldwide every year and you will be my first contact for next years bookings!!! I would be grateful if you could be gracious enough to forward this email to your boss please!

Dubai and Mauritius, Babara B


Dear Chaka Travel, Just to let you know that we had the most fantastic holiday on Mauritius. It really was beautiful and the hotel was out of this world. It took two weeks to get used to the service!! Everyone was so pleasant - and a Mercedes from the airport to the hotel, well. We were upgraded again when we arrived which meant we had the best Junior Suite of the lot. It really was an unforgettable experience and the two golf courses were superb- despite the loss of about 58 golf balls. The upside of this was that our luggage was much lighter coming back!We had a car for 3 days and visited Black River Gorge and other lovely places. However, the highlight of the holiday for us was a visit to the Island of Egrets off Blue Bay, because we were able to see the Pink Pigeon- a bird brought back from the verge of extinction. There were only four left but now there are about ninety breeding pairs- much more important than golf!!Anyway, thanks once again for arranging this wonderful holiday. Incidentally, CHAKA Travel is highly thought of at Belle Mare Plage - not surprising of course!!!

K&P R (Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius)

Dear Mark, Just to say an enormous thank you for organising the most amazing holiday for us! It truly was the holiday of a life time! Everything went like clockwork, from check in to arrival. The staff on the airline were wonderful to the children and treated us all so well. Congratulations to you all for that! Our accommodation at the Belle Mare Plage Golf and Spa Resort was superb. We were treated so well and made to feel so special from the moment we arrived. Our rooms were just as we saw in the brochure and we had the added bonus of having an ocean view. The food was amazing and of the highest standard for the entire length of our stay. Staff are courteous and polite and looked after the children so well. They felt very safe and loved every minute of their stay. The golf was brilliant. Again the staff including the caddies exceeded our expectations. The courses were immaculate and a delight to play. The whole package was fantastic and we could not have wished for better. Thank you to all for making it such a memorable experience for us all. We will definitely be going back and of course will be using your wonderful company again, and will be recommending you to all our friends and golfing colleagues. Thank you all again so very much for everything you did for us, your attention to detail and kindness is very much appreciated. Looking forward to the next one already!

Hello Mark, We had a wonderful holiday in Mauritius, thanks a million for the smooth organisation. Please send your latest brochure so that we can book something for this year.

We want to say thank you for making our time so special. The wedding was simply amazing; I have put pictures of your hotel on my Facebook page along with our wedding pictures. I have had so many comments asking where is this lovely place we went to and they all love the Titanic staircase at the hotel. I will be putting our wonderful experience on Trip Advisor also and thank you we would definitely use Chaka Travel again. Thank you Regards Rosaleen & Alan M

Wedding at Le Canonnier


Jen We had a wonderful time on honeymoon in Mauritius and Dubai. Anahita was definitely the highlight, so much so that we didn’t leave the resort apart from a visit to le Toussourok. The accommodation was excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. Dubai was 40C, hot and sunny. We received a complimentary room upgrade in the Jebel Ali resort after complaining about the size of the initial room. We did not realize that the first room was a standard room and common throughout the hotel up to 4th floor!! Our 5th floor suite was twice the size and included complimentary cocktails, afternoon teas etc. This was handled very well by the hotel staff. All travel went extremely well including airport transfers. Many thanks for all your help in making our honeymoon so memorable. We are planning a return trip for our 10th anniversary (if we can wait that long). Regards Michael & Patricia

Mauritius and Dubai


Just to let you know we had a wonderful holiday at the Belle Mare Plage and will definitely go back again. The people were wonderful and nothing was too much effort. Belle Mare is perfect and your recommendation of junior suite was spot on. We also enjoyed the golf - we played Legend, Links and Tousserok. Thank you very much for your help and we will use Chaka again. Kind Regards Catherine PS : You might be interested to know Nick B recommended Chaka to us when we were there and one of my colleagues has also used Chaka and recommended you very highly.

Belle Mare Plage 2010


Hi Jen, Just to let you know that we had a wonderful holiday both in Dubai & Mauritius. What a wonderful island, the hotel was super & the staff so friendly- it reminded me of the Carribean 20 years ago ! we had a beautiful suite which was quiet, overlooking the pool and the beach & sea and on the ground floor, fabulous. I really hope Mauritius stays that way and does not become spoilt like the Carribean - at least the Belle Mare has all that beach so cannot ever really be spoilt. We also enjoyed Dubai we met a friend who lives there and she took us all around and onto the Palm so it was very interesting , we seemed to do everyting that a visitor does all in two days ! so we were very pleased to reach Mauritius to relax! Hopefully we may go again one day. Thank you Regards, Anne B

Mauritius and Dubai


I had a WONDERFUL honeymoon thank you! And thank you so much for being so hepful throughout the booking process. It was perfect, right from when we had our private transfer to when we left. The hotel was amazing, the service was like nothing I have ever experienced before and it was all very lovely! Thanks again Amie H

Belle Mare Plage


I am writing to thank you for my holiday in Mauritius. The Belle Mare Plage was wonderful, my room perfect, the golf courses super. The staff were as usual exceptional. I was very pleased with the flights on Air Mauritius. I have done a lot of travelling over the years and stayed at many a good hotel but I have never been so impressed with everything. I am already looking forward to my next trip. Could you please send me brochures of golf holidays, I am impressed with the company’s standard.

Miss Audrey C-P (Belle Mare Plage Mauritius)


Hi Mark, We just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our honeymoon in Mauritius. We had a fantastic time. The Belle Mare Plage Hotel is truly stunning! Couldn’t fault a thing. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent every day. There was so much attention to detail - flowers in the room, in the bathroom, etc. We were even given slippers, a traditional t-shirt and a sarong. Champagne and canapes in the room was a nice touch, including our flower arrangement. Anyway, thanks once again for organising this truly wonderful experience!

H&I W, Honeymoon at the Belle Mare Plage


Selection of comments from MIXED PAIRS TOURNAMENT, Mauritius 2009 . . . . . . . . . Organisation from start to finish was excellent. The correspondence on booking through to Jo taking care of everything on site. Jo goes beyond the call of duty! Prizes and format are good and very fair on everyone. It was a great idea to have a ladies only match. Also a nice idea that most people got a prize and that they were locally produced. Beautifully organised by Jo. We were not left wanting for information at any time. Mixing the couples worked well and Anne and I enjoyed meeting many of the party as fellow competitors. Formats are very good and prizes were lovely. Can’t fault really. Thought it all ran very well. Could not ask for better. . . . . . Comments on Excursions to Ernie Els course, Catamaran trip and Island golf . . . . . Ernie Els course excellent All excellent especially Le Touesserok Catamaran trip and the island golf were both excellent. The catamaran trip was excellent value and people got to know each other better. . . . . . Comments on the Venue . . . . . Hotel excellent (drinks, especially wine could be a little cheaper) Golf course staff, course and service was excellent – Shepheard/Bolland

Mixed Pairs Tournament, Mauritius 2009


Hi Stuart, We just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did to arrange the most amazing wedding ever!! We had just the most fantastic time, not just the wedding but the whole time at Belle Mare Plage. It sounds so cliche but everything was perfect. All of our guests loved it and there were plenty of comments i heard about what a great job you had done and what a great deal we got. So thank you, I know we bothered you a lot with countless emails, but we just wanted you to know we appreciated everything you did!! Sarah and Al

Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius


Dear Mark, We arrived home from our 3 week holiday at The Belle Mare Plage where we had a wonderful time and many thanks to you both for all you did for us to make it a memorable 30 years of marriage celebration. The staff are outstanding at the hotel and Resident Manager Sona Bissoondeeal is a kind and thoughtful gentleman. We loved our candlelit dinner and the cocktail evening at The Presidential Villa. We hope to go again next year and will be in contact with you. We shall recommend Chaka Travel to our golfing friends. With best wishes to you both.

H&C I, 30th anniversary at Belle Mare Plage Resort, Mauritius


Hi Stuart, We have now arrived back to a cold, wet Scotland after our marvelous holiday at Belle Mare Plage. Imagine our delight on arrival to be advised that we had been given a free update to Villa accommodation complete with Butler (Villa Master). We were welcomed by the Senior Manager responsible for the Villas and several of his staff, what a wonderful surprise, we were flabbergasted, it took our trip into the realms of fantasy. I don’t know if you had any input to that but if so then thank you very much indeed. The Island is very beautiful and the people friendly, the resort is superb and the accommodation magnificent, our Butler, Jogoo was a treasure and nothing was too much trouble, now we know how the rich and famous feel. All of the Staff we encountered went to extremes to be helpful, courteous and friendly. The golf courses were very challenging but great to play again the Staff very friendly and helpful and as for Le Touessrok golf course at Ile Aux Cerfs, we thought we’d died and gone to Heaven. A truly wonderful holiday which will be extremely difficult to top, thank you to you and your colleagues at Chaka for all your help, there wasnnt the slightest glitch anywhere!!!

Mr G W, Belle Mare Plage Villas


Hi Mark, Just a quick note to thank you so much for arranging such a wonderful wedding and honeymoon for us. Mauritius is a truly wonderful place, and we were so well looked after. The wedding was a complete success and we wouldn’t change a thing. The people there are so lovely, kind and pleasant and the Belle Mare Plage was out of this world. Unfortunately we are now back at work and have to return to reality. We will certainly be returning to the island as soon as possible. It will not be next year though because the baby is due in April, another little surprise from Mauritius. Mark, thanks again, you’re a star. Kind regards

D&A H, Wedding at Belle Mare Plage


Hi Stuart Yes we had a great time, probably one of the best holidays ever. We made some very good friends and the group over all were fantastic, Jo organized it perfectly and we had a great laugh. The hotel and staff were brilliant, but I knew they would be after last time, I think over all we came 4th in the comp and won one round over all, but win lose or draw it did not matter because the holiday was so excellent. Once again thanks for all what you and Chaka have done and I will speak to you soon for another booking. Adam & Kim

Mixed Pairs Golf Tournament


We have just returned from the most marvellous holiday at the Belle Mare Plage. All the travel arrangements worked perfectly and the hotel was quite outstanding. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom beachfront villa on day one. The quality was superb and the service from all the staff was second to none. They couldn’t do enough for you which was most refreshing. Mauritours provided a most efficient service to and from the resort and perhaps you could pass my thanks to them for the courteous way in which we were treated. We would like a quote for a beachfront villa for the same time next year! Best wishes and thank you Pete S

Belle Mare Plage Resort, Mauritius


Just to feedback on our holiday at Belle Mare Plage. Overall we had an great time. The hotel cannot really be faulted on any score. Food and service were excellent. As a large party of 14 with many ages we obviously had various personal needs all of which were met promptly and with great attention to detail. They gave my mother a nice 80th Birthday reception. We were offered upgrades to Villas but eventually decided to remain in the main body of the hotel. The Villas were beautiful but a bit remote for the elderly. Water sports etc were all good value. Golf was very good on the Legend. We only played 9 holes on the Links as the greens were in bad shape - hollow tined. Golf at Ile aux cerfs was very good. Excellent condition, good course but a bit over the top on charges etc. Transfers were well managed by Mauritours. Somehow one of our bags failed to get loaded on departure from the hotel but they had already noticed before we arrived at the airport and had arranged follow up transport. All in all though an excellent trip. Thanks to all of you for your efforts and patience especially through all the hassles of the Ash Cloud.

Mauritius


I just wanted to email you and say thank you to you and the team at Chaka Travel for all your help in arranging our holiday at Belle Mare Plage. We had a fantastic time, one of the best holidays we have ever had!!! The hotel is fantastic and the Mauritian people so warm and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Mauritours were great, the meet and greet and pickup was on time and the tours they ran were great, we had a lovely day on the Green Dolphin catamaran. The golf was brilliant we managed to get to play Le Touessrock as well as the Legend and Links courses at Belle Mare Plage. Many thanks again, we will certainly be coming back to you for our holidays in the future Best wishes David and Kathleen Metcalfe

Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius


We had a fantastic time in Mauritius, the hotel was superb. Our hotel room was upgraded to a suite and I thank you if this was down to you. The guys thoroughly enjoyed the golf, they played 6 rounds although they said it was tough. We enjoyed a day at the races, underseawalking, deep sea fishing and a full day boat trip - oh and I got my water skiing in. Everything ran very smoothly from start to finish - for the ladies it was a totally relaxing holiday. Thank you again, we will certainly be going back to Mauritius and when we do I will be in touch. Laura

Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius


A big thank you for organising the Belle Mare Plage for us and getting us the upgrade. We made plenty of use of the outside area in the evening with a glass of wine as the sun went down. Although we had a very relaxing time we also played lots of golf, so Ann now says she needs a holiday. (Golfed out!!!). Once again many thanks for everything amd we are looking forward to next year already. Ann and Adrian L

Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius


We have just returned from Mauritius and would like to say how fantastic a holiday we have had. Great value package, beautiful hotel and beaches, everything ran smoothly with the transfers etc. I would definitely use the company again. Many thanks again for such wonderful service Kind regards Sarah P

Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius


Recently stayed at the Dinarobin and the Shandrani in Mauritius. Both Hotels were World Class and five star in every way possible - Chaka Travel is extremly well respected throughout the Island and everyone we met could not have done more to ensure that our stay was simply perfect. We flew Air Mauritius from London which was charming and were looked after extremly well by Mauritours for transfers and Island sightseeing ........Chaka is simply the only way to do Mauritius! Jasmine and Leo xxxo

Dinarobin and the Shandrani


Thank you so much for arranging our trip - it was absolutely fantastic. The flights were on time and Mauritours were very efficient and helpful. The Heritage was splendid and we were able to relax fully eating and drinking too much and enjoying the daily massage!! The staff and indeed all the Mauritians we met were extremely friendly and courteous -nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed the golf playing 7 rounds in all. It is a most attractive course but challenging particularly the front nine and we needed a buggy although a few people did trolley. We found that a number of people had stayed at the Heritage the previous year and one couple were on their 8th visit - this speaks for itself!! The resort would suit our adult children as they are all into golf, tennis, water sports and massage.

Richard B, Heritage, Mauritius


Thank you for organising such a lovely two week holiday. As always the hotel and golf staff were great and very friendly. We met lots of new golfing friends and we look forward to returning next year to get married. John and Lynn.

I just wanted to email to say a big thank you to Chaka Travel. Guy & I got back from our honeymoon at The Heritage in Mauritius on Saturday and we had a fantastic time. Everything was just perfect and we want to thank Chaka Travel for doing such a superb job organising our honeymoon. It really was flawless. We were met at the airport and transferred to our hotel very smoothly. The Heritage is a wonderful resort - the staff were incredibly friendly and we felt completely spoilt & relaxed. We had the most fabulous time and really enjoyed the Heritage. It was a brilliant recommendation and the resort was better than we could have imagined! Everything was just amazing, from the staff, to the beautiful resort, pools, beach, the food was incredible and the whole island just beautiful. A perfect honeymoon destination. Mauritours were there to look after any needs we had and we all arrangements were in place to transfer us back to the airport. We have absolutely no complaints and would definitely recommend The Heritage and Chaka Travel. Once again, thank you so much to Chaka Travel for making our honeymoon a dream come true.

A & G H, honeymoon at Heritage Resort, Mauritius


Superb value, absolutely no complaints at all. Everybody in the hotel and at the golf club did their utmost to make this a very special holiday. David, Sue and Emily I

Mixed Pairs Tournament at the Heritage Golf and Spa Resort


Hi Mark, Christine and I would like to say thanks for arranging our holiday and honeymoon. Everything we asked of you and the Heritage was delivered...and more! There are two ladies in my office who are planning to get married next year in Mauritius and I’ve already recommended both the Heritage and Chaka Travel to them! I am trying to be brief but I have so many good things to say about the Heritage. The resort itself is fantastic, we loved the spa, all the architecture is amazing and the water theme throughout is perfect. The restaurant manager was amazing in preparing our wedding meal. He cooked us a 6 course dinner which wasn’t on the menu (There were 8 in our wedding party and he cooked a different menu for each of us and hand wrote the dishes onto a tropical leaf for each guest which we now have framed in our kitchen!). I have never experienced service like it either. Even in the buffet restaurant we couldn’t even carry our plates back to the table, the waiters insisted on doing this as were on holiday!! All the staff seemed to know us by name too, the attention to detail was superb! The wedding co-ordinators were exceptional, we couldn’t have asked for better service and we complimented both of them to Wendy, their manager. They did EVERYTHING for us! Mark, I loved the course! I played a round with Jerry, one of the proos which was nice. We weren’t keeping a score card but I think I actually beat him off scratch! (I play off 7) And finally I wanted to mention a trip to Tamarin Bay where we were accompanied by a pod of dolphins! This was a superb experience filming the dolphins from close range! We moved onto a spot where we were supplied with masks and snorkels and we swam by the reef seeing the tropical fish. Finally they took us to a tiny remote island near Le Morne (only coconut trees on it) where they cooked us a superb bbq on the beach and we had wine, beer and soft drinks. As it was our wedding they gave Christine a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Thanks again

Good food, good company, good wine, shame about the golf....spent half the week in the sand bunker!! Thanks to all at the Awali and Chaka Travel for a wonderful time - Gordon.

The hotel and Premium Package was great value for money encompassing all the aspects we look for in a holiday. Great food, luxurious accommodation, great service and of course, fabulous golf. The golf course was a great challenge every day and Steve and his staff were always friendly and genuinely pleased to see you and help.Helen and Dennis C

This has been the most brilliant holiday ever, and fantastic value for money. Jo has been very helpful and the staff at the hotel and golf course could just not do enough for you. We have been spoilt rotten. Many thanks! Bob and Nikki J

Mixed Pairs Tournament at the Heritage Golf and Spa Resort


Hi, Would just like to say what a fantastic time we had at the Heritage, after a brilliant holiday last year we were a bit worried that nothing could match it. We were totally wrong, we could not fault the holiday at all, the food, the spa, the golf, the diving, the staff, the hotel, everything was excellent. Do not hesitate to use us as a reference to possible customers, I would speak to them direct or email etc. Thank you once again. We’ll be back!

DW & GE (Second holiday to the Heritage Golf and Spa Resort)


Brilliant holiday! Excellent location, superb organisation and perfect weather what more could be asked for ... oh, yes! Fully inclusive hotel where excellent food and wine was ’free’!! Many thanks to Jo (and Chaka Travel) for a well run tournament with great extra ’away days’. Many thanks. Linda and Bob T

Mixed Pairs Tournament at the Heritage Golf and Spa Resort


Just wanted to say a million thanks for the wedding and holiday of a lifetime, it was absolutely wonderful. The wedding day was so relaxed and the staff could not have done more! It was everything I wanted and a little bit more, the hotel was amazing, including the facilities, rooms, food but the service and attention to detail was the best thing of all! My new husband managed to go diving virtually every day, and my Dad made sure he played golf every day. The whole group is still talking about the Heritage now, and we all hope to go back one day. I can also thoroughly recommend the dolphin trip to Tamarind Bay, we actually managed to swim in the middle of a pod of dolphins - amazing!

MC, Wedding at Heritage Resort


Best holiday ever... well done to Chaka Travel & Jo we have made friends for life. Kim and Adam.

Hi, A note to say we have just returned from the The Heritage and had an absolutely fabulous time. The hotel, staff, service, facilties, etc were first class! Also, a big thank you to Chaka Travel for making all the necessary arrangements for us and likewise the excellent service you have provided to us. We are planning for a return visit to The Heritage in October and would be grateful if you could give us prices. Many thanks & look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards

Just to let you know I’ve written a really good review on tripadvisor about you and Chaka Travel as you have been brilliant and we certainly will be booking with you again, once I have found Richard’s cheque book - I think he has hidden it from me after this wedding/honeymoon/holiday!!!. Thanks

Hi Jen Le Prince Maurice - Mauritius 16th-30th May. I just wanted to write and thank you and the team at Chaka Travel for a marvellous holiday. Everything was perfect and all the travel arrangements went particularly smoothly. We were particularly impressed with the transfers between the hotel and airport and having someone to meet us at the airport on our return journey was wonderful. Thank you for your excellent customer service, competetive prices and amazing golf. With very best wishes, Clarissa & Keith B

Le Prince Maurice - Mauritius 16th-30th May


Hi Stuart We have just returned from our 2 week vacation to Le prince Maurice. I feel I must email you to say what a wonderful time we had. Its a great resort and the hotel, staff, golf and food was excellent. Mauritours provided an excellent pick up and return private transfer and your representative at the airport on our return made check in effortless. Well done Chaka. I wouldn’t hesitate in using you again. regards Alan

Le prince Maurice, Mauritius


Hi Stuart Just to say that we have returned from yet another fabulous holiday in Mauritius. What made it extra special this time was that at the end of the first week the hotel contacted us to say that as the hotel was overbooked for the following week would we accept a free upgrade to the Prince Maurice. Wow what an hotel! It was probably only about 50% occupancy so I am not sure if the service would be the same if full, but it was amazing. The food was out of this world as was the overall service. Different from the BMP, much quieter but that suits us fine. Otherwise very happy with BMP, we were welcomed back like family. Thanks again for all your help especially this year with all the hassle of the volcanic ash. MC

Mauritius


Zim (aka Mark), Thank you for arranging what was a wonderful honeymoon! Le Telfair was beautiful. We had a lovely room overlooking the beach, and the food, activities, relaxation - everything was great. I know everyone always says this about their honeymoon but it really was the best holiday of our lives. We enjoyed Atlantis in Dubai too - quite a contrast to Telfair! We had a lot of fun. They upgraded us to a rather senior suite upon check-in - which was probably bigger than our apartment in Zurich! - a message seemed to flash up on the receptionist’s screen, perhaps we’ve got you to thank for that?! All in all a memorable start to our life together. Enjoy the summer and thanks again,

Just a quick note to say thank you once again. We had a fabulous time ... the Le Touessrok hotel was superb, as was the service. The Le Touessrok golf course was great. Thanks also for the advice on Air Mauritius which was great, the service was really good. I actually think the food was better than BA club class, we would definitely travel with them again. Once again, many thanks for all your help. The service and advice you provided was really excellent. Both of us are really impressed and will definitely contact you again in future for similar type holidays.

Le Touessrok, Mauritius


This is to thank you for your very efficient and helpful support in arranging our recent trip to Mauritius. It was a pleasure to deal with you and your company and this contributed to our enjoyment of our conference on health at Sands hotel then to the wonderful 12 days at Le Tousserok. We would certainly recommend Chaka Travel to any of our friends looking for similar service. With thanks and best wishes FC & JR

Le Touessrok


This is the first time we have used Chaka Travel and we cannot thank you enough for arranging a fantastic holiday at Le Touessrok in Mauritius. The hotel was the best five star hotel we have ever stayed in, the staff, service and food were superb. The golf course was a challenge but in superb condition and again the staff were excellent. Everything including the transfers was first class, and we would certainly not hesitate to use Chaka Travel again. Graham W

We just wanted to say thanks SO MUCH for your help in finding Les Pavillons or should we now say LUX* le Morne! It was everything we could have wished for and more. The perfect honeymoon destination and one we will never forget.

LUX* Le Morne Mauritius 2012


Hello Jen We would like thank you for excellent service which You (Chaka Travel) provided for us in preparing our wedding and holiday. We spent great time on Mauritius . Les Pavillons is a fantastic hotel with professional and helpful staff. They were excellent. Our wedding day was organised perfectly, we had sunny weather, fans during ceremony and in the evening romantic dinner on the beach only for us. Once again Thank You. Jacek and Ela Cieluszeccy

Les Pavillons Mauritius


Mauritius - The Pavillions was a wonderful hotel. The room was beautifully furnished and we really appreciated the wi fi and TV so we could keep up to date with the news and Tour de France. The service was without doubt 5 star. We couldn’t fault it not that we try to as life is too short. The staff almost without exception were charming. They would all greet you as you passed, it’s a small thing but a good thing. The lady rep was very helpful and the car was so easy to organise. We got lost on Mauritius and the Director of Budget cars stopped to help us. Now that’s what I call service. Dinah and Sharon

Les Pavillons, Mauritius


Recently stayed at the Dinarobin and the Shandrani in Mauritius. Both Hotels were World Class and five star in every way possible - Chaka Travel is extremly well respected throughout the Island and everyone we met could not have done more to ensure that our stay was simply perfect. We flew Air Mauritius from London which was charming and were looked after extremly well by Mauritours for transfers and Island sightseeing ........Chaka is simply the only way to do Mauritius! Jasmine and Leo xxxo

Shandrani and the Dinarobin


I would just like to say a big thank you, our wedding and holiday at the Shandrani was amazing. Any queries we had you answered them quickly and you kept us informed at all times. We didn’t have to worry about anything and we will definitely be recommending Chaka Travel to our family and friends. Once again thank you very much. Regards Laura

March 2010 Shandrani Mauritius


Hi Jen We had an absolutely fantastic time in Mauritius. It really was a dream come true. The Shandrani was a lovely hotel - location, staff, food, accommodation, everything! We would go back tomorrow if we could. Our wedding day was everything we could have wished for and more. We were married on the golf course overlooking the ocean, it was a perfect day. Thank you Jen with all your help in planning our wedding in Mauritius. It was AMAZING!

Dianne & Graham Cadden - Shandrani Hotel, Mauritius


Just wanted to say thanks for arranging such an amazing Honeymoon! We had a ball! Tamarina was so friendly and such a beautiful place. Safari was out of this world. We loved every minute of it. Although it was very cold in the trucks!! Blankets and hot water bottles were very welcome!! And very thoughtful! And Abbey Manor was beautiful also - views were great and staff very helpful! Definitely the right way to do the trip as I slept for the 1st couple of days! Couldn’t have asked for anything more - it was heaven!! Hope you are well and thank you for making the perfect ending to the wedding and a perfect beginning to our marriage!

South Africa and Mauritius


We had a ball in honeymoon. The moon palace is a beautiful hotel, and really does cater for every need. It is a great hotel with a lot of amenities and brilliant and very helpful staff. Oh and Andrew says to tell you to have a mango mojito cocktail, very nice!!! Thank you for all your help and your recommendations were spot on. Laura Kerr and Andrew McCorriston

Moon Palace, Mexico


The Moroccan people we met were very friendly and most we met spoke passable English, the caddies ranged greatly in standard but all were equally friendly and willing. All in all we can highly recommend Morocco to those who are looking to visit a charming country, steeped in history and tradition and with great golf courses and amazing sites.

Morocco


We had an absolutely fantastic time!!!! Our wedding day was the best day of our lives! Everything was perfect! The hotel was beautiful and the people were extremely helpful. The Seychelles was the perfect location and we hope to return in the future. Thank you very much for all your help in arranging our holiday/wedding/honeymoon - it was superb!!!

Vicky, Wedding in the Seychelles


Hi, I wanted to thank you so much for organising (and hand-holding) us on our trip to South Africa last November. The holiday was absolutely awesome. We did so much and learnt so much and I’ve fallen in love with the country! We did the whale and dolphin watching. Jason did the highest bungee jump, we stroked the cheetahhs at Spier, met some lovely people in Wilderness, did the monkey world visit and the elephant sanctuary, saw the penguins and did some wine tastingg.. Your advice and info was spot on, so thanks again.

K&J South African tailor made holiday


It was fantastic! Heritage was great – we really liked the resort, the food was great and so was the accommodation. Thanda was amazing – we actually managed to get an upgrade for the whole time we were there, so we were in the lodge for 4 nights. What an amazing place. We saw all the big 5 and loads more, the place was beautiful, the weather was great, food was lovely and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. I’m depressed to be back! All the transfers worked perfectly and the flights were good as well. Thanks so much for organising the trip for us – it was great. Nina

Mauritius and South Africa


Hi, Thought you may appreciate knowing that we enjoyed a wonderful holiday. The itinerary worked like a dream, the 3 parts to our holiday combined to make a holiday of a lifetime. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into the plans as they evolved.

EB (Cape Town, Safari and Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius)


Hi, We had the greatest holiday ever, and it was seamless from start to finish. Your arrangements were spot on and we had the upgrade at Belle Mare Plage, and even upgraded at Steenberg without asking.Had a cake specially for my birthday and the staff at both hotels were special, and made every minute enjoyable. It was great to see so many in Belle Mare who remembered us even after 3 years since our last visit. Loved Cape Town shame we had only 6 days there. After such a time it is a little deflating to return, but life goes on. Our thanks to you for patiently looking after us, and to Mark for his help.

D.A. (Mauritius and South Africa)


Hi Mark, I just wantedto let you know what a fantastic holiday we had in South Africa and to thank you Lesley & others for the organisational skills that made the holiday what it was - brilliant!! I am now completely wined out, dined out and my liver is not speaking to me. Best wishes TL

South Africa


Dear Philip, I just wanted to thank you for all the arrangements you made for our multi centre holiday. The hotels were excellent, the staff couldn’t have been nicer (Cascades, Fancourt and Radisson). We were met on time at every airport and every transfer went according to plan. Cascades bent over backwards to help us, they had 249 people checking out when we arrived in the morning and we weren’t supposed to have a room available until 4 p.m. we had travelled overnight from U.K. and the manager got a room for us by 12.30. The golf pro even arranged for Joe to play the Gary Player course with the top amateurs. May I recommend Santorini’s restaurant, once again food and staff excellent. On arriving at Fancourt champagne, chocolates, and basket of fruit in our room (lovely big bedroom). I would also recommend the Radisson in Cape Town, lovely hotel, excellent position and the courtesy buses extremely handy. Thank you again for your help, keep up the good work! Yours sincerely, Maureen J

South Africa


We both wish to thank you for the way that you arranged everything.The boarding houses/ hotels were of the highest quality, the travel arrangements were superb and the travel directions were absolutely spot on. Without your effort and input we would not have enjoyed such a memorable holiday. Once again thank you very much for everything you did. Regards Cathie and Chris F

South Africa


The holiday was fabulous and your advice on staying in Cape Town first was perfect. The Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Arabella route is excellent (I would recommend spending the last night there as opportunity to really relax - by the pool, on the course or in the spa...plus, the view of the stars at night is stunning!!! Only took 1 hour from Stellenbosch and with evening flights back to UK it gave me time to head to Hermanus for a spot of whale watching before heading back..oh, and the 9 hole playing lesson with Alison the pro is well worth ZAR 800). The driving involved was very enjoyable as the scenery is so stunning out there. The welcomes i received from all off the hotels and golf courses were also very heartening. I will def be heading back, and will very likely call you to arrange when I do !! If you like golf, sun, wine and are looking for somewhere to relax, I cannot recommend Cape Town area highly enough. golfholidaysinsouthafrica.com - you can add MADE EASY to that because that is exactly what you did !! I was very impressed and happy with the speed and quality of service for all of my queries/amendments/advice after booking the holiday - should be a model for all customer service businesses !! It was also nice to be met by a local and taken up to the car before being left on my own devices for a week. GD

Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Arabella South Africa


Dear Mark, This place lives up to all expectations on what is continuing to be a very super and special holiday, everywhere has been special and we are just leaving Victoria Falls and the same applies. You did a terrific plan for us.(postcard received whilst they were enjoying a trip which took them to Cape Town, along the Garden Route and up to Zimbabwe to Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba and Victoria Falls)

Ronnie & Joan H


Dear Mark, Just a quick note to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday in South Africa. All arrangements went according to plan and we were impressed with your ground agents who contacted us to make sure everything was O.K. during our trip. Each place we stayed was very special, Princes Grant - good food, beautiful rooms and a fantastic golf course. White Elephant Lodge - a real ’Out of Africa’ experience, 5* luxury service and food equaling any of the private reserves in the Kruger Park - one of Africa’s best kept secrets! Chilli Pepper Lodge - lovely themed suites with kitchen and private braai area, they even kill black mambas for you when they get into your bedroom! If any of your clients are looking for an ’away from it all’ holiday, I can thoroughly recommend all three places they all surpassed our expectations. Once again many thanks for your organisation from a very satisfied client.

Hi Mark, We would like to say thanks for arranging our holiday and honeymoon. Everything we asked of you was delivered ... and more! There are two ladies in my office who are planning to get married next year and I’ve already recommended Chaka Travel to them!

Honeymoon


Hi Mark, Back safe and sound after a truly wonderful holiday. The organisation overall was superb and all of your local representatives did us particularly proud, with personal service all the week. Everything went like clockwork from the Thai Airways flight from Heathrow back to Heathrow (a very good airline) - our congratulations to you all. The Golf Courses played were all very challenging, and the Caddies a great asset, our handicaps range from 8 - 20, and we were all happy with the set up of the courses for our abilities. Once again our thanks to you all for a fantastic holiday, we will not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends, and hope it is not too long before we have saved up enough of the necessary to use your services ourselves again.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for everything you have organised and helped us out with- especially the esta situation! We had such a great time and a lot of that is due to the suggestions of places and activities you had given to us.... I have recommended you to everyone who has asked about our honeymoon!! Thanks again Sarah & Dom

San Fran , cruise around Mexico , Santa Monica LA & Las Vegas


Many Thanks for all your help and advice in putting this all together. It worked absolutely spot on and your recommendations were great. New York A1 - really good trip and Waldorf was fab - kids found it little "formal" - but they were out most of the time. Buena Vista was great - and the kids loved it - Swimming all hours was a big plus and the Suite was great. The House location was great - and the fact that I got a game of Golf on the course behind - an added bonus. All travel went to plan - Again would like to thank you personally - your input was invaluable. GG
