Reviews for Chambal safari lodge near Agra, India


review 19 Dec 2007

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

The camel safari - wonderful romantic scenery and Fort Ater, great fun for the children.

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

Take all your money as British pounds in cash and change at Delhi airport. ATMs allow only limited withdrawal of cash in India, British banks stop your card if used so you cannot use another day unless you inform them. Do not drink the "drinking water" at Delhi airport - make sure you have enough rupees left to buy drinking water when awaiting the outward flight.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes - created lots of employment; inspiring to see a number of the junior guides learning about the wildlife from the experts on the wildlife walks. Bucket baths, and simple but very comfortable accommodation make one realise this is a poor country, limited resources but of local origin, and we inevitably did respect and value it. The main rubbish created was plastic drinking bottles and there seems no current way around that.

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

A wonderful experience for families; the hospitality was so genuinely warm and caring; the wildlife wonderful, and an excellent way of getting some idea on how 1/6 of the world's population lives.
