Everything was perfect using Kim Kim. We had 3 guides in different parts of our trip plus a trip to Tiger Tops at Chitwan elephant camp. Rajeev was our first guide and we were impressed with how thorough his knowledge of the village and history was. Suman was our guide through our trekking stage and he went above and beyond. It was during this part of the trip that my husband wasn’t feeling very well to handle the full trekking days. Suman adjusted our plans and made sure my husband’s health was of primary concern. For this I am extremely grateful. Our last guide was Pratikshya and it was wonderful to see a woman guide in this male dominated field. There are some things that just need a woman’s touch and she provided that plus very detailed knowledge of the villages we went to.

Our time in Chitwan was priceless with Tiger Tops. Their values regarding the wildlife and how they particularly took care of the elephants was outstanding. Our personal guide/assistant was Bhim and he made sure we got to take part in all aspects of elephant maintenance and care. They took excellent care of us and the animals. Cannot say enough of how much this portion on the trip meant to me personally.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Liz, thanks for taking the time to provide such great feedback above. I am over the moon that you loved the company of our wonderful guides, Rajeev, Suman and not least Pratikshya, I have known all of them for many years now, so it is always great to hear good things said about them.
Also wonderful to hear how you enjoyed your time in Chitwan and at Tiger Tops, as you say it is great what they are doing for/with the elephants. Thanks so much for traveling with us and we hope to see you back in Nepal some day. Thanks, Mads
