Reviews for Gerewol festival holiday in Chad


review 11 Oct 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Interacting with the Mbororo people was a very rewarding experience. They were friendly and very obliging when it comes to taking photos. The work which had been done before the trip started in order for the group to be accepted was obviously of the highest standard.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Arrive a day earlier to acclimatize as it is a very hot destination and it is better to be well rested before the start of the trip. I arrived a day earlier and left Chad later than most of the people and it meant being rested and enjoying the pool in the hotel in Ndjamena.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think that the interactions with the locals were positive.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I was really impressed with the service I received from this operator before the trip began. Gerewol had been on my to do list for years and my interactions with other tour companies left me a bit concerned about the logistics and as a result I did not book a trip in the past. The moment I dealt with Jim I was satisfied that he was not a fly-by night operator. He was very responsive when any questions were raised prior to the trip and I enjoyed the professionalism of his ground operator SVS in Chad. Tomaso from SVS is a competent and caring person and that made for a very rewarding experience.
