Why Choose Biko Adventures Tours?
With so many “safari companies” & tour operators to choose from, reasons why you should choose to go with Biko Adventures Tours
1. PERSONAL SERVICE: We CARE!
We believe in personalized service, attention is given to detail and every trip is special to us. People book as clients but leave as friends. At Biko Adventures Tours, you do not have to book your trip of a lifetime on a group departure. At Biko Adventures Tours, your safari can be just that – YOUR safari (with a personal driver / guide & vehicle)!
2. RIGHT PRICES:
We provide QUALITY at the RIGHT PRICE.
We do NOT compete with operators who charge less as they realize what their services are worth! Moreover, in Africa, you do not have to pay the most to get the best! We believe our prices to be affordable & the best available.
3. SUPERIOR VEHICLES:
We are the ‘Trend Setters’
Our 4WDs consist of Toyota Land Cruisers, Nissan Patrol and Land Rovers; we DO NOT use minibuses for bush safaris.
Among other things, we pride ourselves in our unique vehicle designs, most of the extended Land Rovers and Land Cruisers you will see around you on safari in Northern Tanzania have been based on the preliminary model designed by Biko Adventures Tours. We are therefore, proud to be the trend-setters that other tour operators have seen fit to try & emulate.
We do not use minibuses for safaris. After having tried & tested buses, we do not find them tough enough for our itineraries on the African roads (this aspect is very true during rains and on routes away from tourist traps). Our client to driver / guide ratio is small, so more attention available!
Each 4WD is equipped with a Wi-Fi for communication while on Safari, a set of referral books, a first aid kit, a cool box, a pair of binoculars & has either a pop-up or flip-flop rooftop- ideal for game viewing & photography! Our 4WD vehicles are maintained in our own workshop and can go just about anywhere in just about any conditions!
4. FLEXIBLE PROGRAMMES:
About 80% of our business is generated from tailor made itineraries (from fly-in safaris, to drive in safaris & walking safaris; from palm fringed beaches to mountain peaks…). We offer maximum flexibility on the program you want, for the dates convenient to you, and the accommodation style you prefer! That means maximum enjoyment on your safari – after all it is YOUR holiday and we will do our best to ensure we exceed your expectations!
We have appointed a couple of Representatives to assist with timely responses especially in areas where time differences result in delayed responses and also to help you avoid expensive phone calls to us. So, we will help plan, advice & implement that really special safari for you!
5. DRIVER / GUIDES:
Knowledgeable, nature-loving, careful drivers & are friendly guides.
Our guides are very well disciplined, polite, careful and love their work.
Without a good driver / guide (the most important aspect of a safari), a safari isn’t a safari! At least NOT at “ Biko Adventures Tours!”
Our in-house training helps update knowledge and skills required by our guides to make your trip extra special!
6. OUR MOUNTAIN GUIDES:
Polite, informative, encouraging & good coordinators.
They are the most important aspect of a trek… without their sternness on your pace, their coordination with the other crew, their encouragement when you so much feel like quitting, their hand on your shoulder when you feel sick or their bright smile when you are at the summit…. the trek will not be enjoyable!
7. LOCAL OPERATORS:
We are a Tanzanian Company.
We were born here, live here and work here; we know Tanzania, the rest of Africa better. When you purchase a Biko Adventures Tours ‘ Safari you are dealing directly with the company providing the services, not with an agent shopping for services in Africa on your behalf. Our guides are all local, knowledgeable and indigenous to this part of Africa – we do not employ foreign guides as we believe the best people to show you our homeland has to be a Tanzanian born and bred!
8. WE DELIVER!
Anyone can have fabulous websites, glossy brochures and equally glossy promises;’ at Biko Adventures Tours we use simplicity to its finest and are straightforward in telling you about what to expect on your safari and implement the promises we make. We deliver!
Ask those who have been with us, they’ll give you first hand information about our service.
Should you choose us to be your hosts, be assured you will have the time of your life – you will be closer to nature, to the sounds and rhythms of the wild. You will get to see the “Real Africa”, the way it is meant to be seen. Interact with local people, learn about nature and the environment, and marvel at the splendid wildlife. You are sure to have an unforgettable and wonderful experience – and sure to come back time and time again, as many of our clients do.
