I'm new here and find this website so very helpful.
I am planning my trip to Kenya in June and need to choose a tour operator to travel with. I've contacted some tour operators that have top ranking in TA and got their quotations. However, after checking KATO membership, I find out that many of them are not registered. Now I'm struggling whether I should go for the one having over 100 good comments in TA but not a KATO member.
I've read the functions and role of KATO. It's sound very good. However, i don't understand why those TA top-ranked tour operators do not join it.
Is it better and more safe to go for KATO member but with less good comments in TA? or should i just stick to my original choice of non-KATO? What do you think? I'm sorry if my question has been covered before.
Any advices are appreciated.
