Remarkable Trip to Botswana and Zambia
Incredible and well-organised experience that was perfectly arranged by Toon and Josh at Wayfairer. Josh created the initial itinerary that was based off of my initial ideas/budget and Toon dealt with any other requirements or requests after the itinerary was created. This was a 2 week trip through Botswana and Zambia with multiple transfers and the professionalism, patience, communication and availability was both exceptional and reassuring. Looking forward to my next trip with Wayfairer!
Maggie was just AMAZING!
Our travel advisor Maggie was amazing from the very start and planned an itinerary to suit us all as a family of 6. She listened to what we wanted and just came up with the perfect trip from start to finish! It was my dream to have my family together to holiday on Safari, for my 60th birthday celebrations, nothing disappointed me!
We did two different Safaris in South Africa, 3 nights at each lodge then had a week in Mauritius. We had one occasion to contact the concierge who was assigned to us, Toon, and she was fab at sorting our query. The trip far exceeded our expectations. . We saw all kinds of wildlife, met the most amazing people and enjoyed the excellent food, two of our party are vegan and were catered for really well at all destinations. . The staff at both lodges were incredible, and at no point did we have to worry about anything. The same goes for Mauritius, amazing place and wonderfully warm welcoming people.
Every aspect of the trip was planned so well and with incredible attention to detail. Well done Maggie and team. Thank you for making my dream come true! We wouldn't hesitate to use Wayfairer again to plan our next trip.
Above and Beyond Our Expectations in 2019 and 2022
Wayfairer Travel went far beyond our expectations when we traveled to southern Tanzania and Zanzibar in 2019. We spent two weeks exploring the Rufiji River riparian, grassland, and woodland ecosystems and wildlife of the Selous Game Reserve on land and boat. This was the first time we saw packs of wild dogs on our many trips to the continent. We then took a few days on Zanzibar to snorkel in the turquoise ocean and sight see historic Stonetown. The local contacts were professionally-trained wildlife guides who knew some of the Wayfairer Travel staff personally. Our accommodations and meals were 5-star fabulous and the staff at each safari camp and beach resort went above and beyond to give us a memorable, luxurious experience. Wayfairer Travel's Carmen Castrovillari covered every detail and answered every question we had before the trip. Carmen continues to provide excellent communication as we plan our next trip for September 2022 to South Africa. Her patience with our apprehension to travel and travel changes during the past 2 years has been outstanding and professional. We will use Wayfairer Travel again and highly recommend them to family and friends. Thanks, Carmen Castrovillari, for a well organized, highly enjoyable, and stress free trip.
Knowledgeable and provided excellent attention to detail regarding all aspects of the holiday.
We had a marvelous and wonderfully memorable holiday in Namibia. Josh at Wayfairer Travel clearly knew the country and gave us excellent advice whilst determining our itinerary. He was also very patient! It all worked beautifully and accommodation was excellent. At the start of the tour, we were given detailed directions, with the route highlighted on the map. We were also shown where possible fuel and food stops were, together with clear advice on driving on the gravel roads. We were provided with a mobile phone which was already set with all our accommodation numbers and emergency numbers and made us feel well looked after and safe.
There were so many highlights, it's impossible to pick one: the dunes, kayaking with seals and dolphins, a herd of desert adapted elephants, hundreds of zebra at a waterhole, lions mating (!), two black rhinos aggravating each other, tracking a leopard, seeing 2 pangolins on a night drive, the ever changing landscapes and unusual rock formations, the night sky and the Milky Way, the silence, the pale golden grasses swaying in the wind. The itinerary certainly enabled us to have a great variety of wonderful experiences whilst exploring this beautiful country. We would definitely recommend Wayfairer Travel.
Amazing service from Wayfairer Travel.
We travel extensively worldwide and Wayfairer went above and beyond any other agent we have experienced. The communications were prompt and efficient. Every query no matter how small was answered quickly, normally same day.No waiting around for replies as with other agents. The tour was seamless and operated like clockwork even though it was tailor made for us and included various forms of transport and different accommodation. It was extremely good value. Each segment of our trip to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe was on time and reliable. All PCR tests we needed to have to travel between various countries were organised for us at our hotels and went without a hitch. I would not hesitate to use Wayfairer again and will recommend them to family and friends. Thanks especially to Toon and Josh Flatman for organising a well run, highly enjoyable and stress free trip.
