    Booked a trip with Captain Gintas and his first mate Dennis. Captain G and first mate Dennis are the best - period. Great day on the water, lots of laughs, stories and the most fun, pulled in 10 good size fish! He sure knows where to find these fish! We had one on line within 10 mins of the first poles to be set up.
    Outstanding time! Highly recommend Angler Charters!
    Thanks again Cappy!

    Myself and a group of friends booked a charter through Storm Warning Charters this past weekend. We could not have been more satisfied with the trip and definitely will be going again. AJ was professional and knew exactly what he was doing to get us fish. Once we were out on the water, AJ made adjustments on-the-fly that resulted in plenty of nice fish. At the conclusion of the trip, our fish were cleaned, divided, and packaged for each of us to take home. Customer service was excellent with questions both before hand and after, such as handling the return of an item left on board in a very timely manner.

    Took 3 boys out on the lake and they caught their limit of trout. The captain and deckhand were knowledgeable and very helpful and worked well with the boys.

    Our party of four went out early into chilly, damp conditions with Captain Anton yesterday. Miraculously the weather held off during our morning trip and the lake was flat with light winds, no rain. To say we had a great time and learned a lot about fishing is an understatement! We were busy catching fish as soon as we arrived at coordinates offshore and soon had a nicely stocked cooler. Captain Anton is a passionate fisherman, buttoned up skipper and nice guy. Looking forward to doing this again. Highly reccomended!

    We went out with Neill with 5 in our party and got out about 12 miles out of the 17 we were supposed to Travel. At that point the first mate let him know we had a seasick member in our party who was miserable. Captain Neill gave us the option of going back an only charging us for gas used. Both he and his mate were very professional, and the gear on his boat was all top notch. I am looking forward to booking with him on a return trip to Chicago. (Without the seasick prone person)😀

    Its more than safari its an adventure with countless sweetest memories in Serengeti national park

    I was so excited for all unforgettable moment in the heart of Serengeti national park 🥰

    I had alot of funny and we explore the wildness is more rewarding and incredible ' and our guide yustar she is ontime and caring at all ,she takes ever risk inorder to make us happy we are so blessed to travel with burigi chato safari was so fantastic , luxury and five star company .🥰

    Unforgetable and incredible visit materuni waterfalls "wonderful experience and happines"thanks to burigi chato safaris, team for organized my wonderfull day tripTom our guide they were excellent.kindly i recommend them to every one who want to visit materuni waterfalls.
    I also had the most incredible time hiking mount kilimanjaro, my burigi chato safaris co ltd team made sure i was well checked from the start of the trekking till the end.
    The day before my burigi chato guide cross checked all my gears and made sure i was all set for my hike the next day using the lemosho route, we started walking though the rain forest area and i even spotted some monkeys on the way, the route was altogether beautiful with the most mesmerizing landscape. I was well catered and even when i lose my apetite as we gained altitude my guide kept pressuring me to eat so as to preserve my energy , we did it the pole pole(slowly) way and eventually i found myself at the roof of africa. I must say i could not do this alone, burigi chato very supportive team made sure i was okay and checked on me every once in a whale. After a thrilling trip to mount kilimanjaro we visited the cultural maasai village . for me it was really refreshing after some time in the mountain, the villagers were really kind i learnt a lot about their unique culture and even did some dancing. I created the best tanzania safari memories with the burigi chato safari company, i hope to do some exploring soon and am sure burigi chato safaris company will be my first place to enquire

    We were lucky enough to get an warm day in Chicago in February, thanks to El Nino. We found Captain Tim in our search for a fun way to enjoy the warm weather on the water. In our half day trip, we caught 3 coho salmon and 4 trout right in front of Navy Pier! Having the Chicago skyline as a backdrop with fishing rods bent over fighting fish, we are very happy customers and hope to return again during the summer.
