Fantastic Ugandan and Mafia Island trip that delivered all and more than we had hoped for!
From the moment that we started to talk to Wayfairer Travel we were impressed with their attention to detail and desire to deliver us a trip that absolutely met our needs and budget. When Leonie discovered my husband and I shared a birthday while we were going to be away, and that the main aim of our trip to Uganda was to go Gorilla trekking, she took the time to plan our itinerary to ensure that we had an amazing birthday.....and we certainly did....meeting Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Communication during the planning of the holiday and ahead of our trip through Carmen as our Concierge was helpful and informative at all times. Nothing was too much trouble, even when we decided to play a little with the itinerary. When we arrived in Uganda their travel partners Wild Frontier Safaris were highly professional and our guides were brilliant. The quality of the lodges that had beeen recommended and selected for us were excellent. The holiday certainly delivered all that we had hoped for and so much more....including lions, leopards, so many birds, elephants, chimpanzees to name but just a few of the wonderful wildlife that we got to see and of course the most majestic of them all Mountain Gorillas. We were event treated to a birthday cake and the entire staff of the lodge that were were staying at on the night of our birthday singing us Happy Birthday. All this was topped off with an opportunity to swim with Whale Sharks when we hopped over to Mafia Island in Tanzania for some rest at a beautiful beach location. We would absolutely recommend Wayfairer Travel and are already wondering where they can take us next......

Honeymoon Safari & Beach Holiday
We had a brilliant experience with Wayfairer Travel when we booked our honeymoon with them. They looked after us well and answered all the questions we had. Would highly recommend using them.

Selous Game Reserve - Tanzania with the all of the wildlife to yourself.
Wayfairer Travel arranged a perfect trip. We loved the Serena Selous Camp, the Serana Mivumo River Lodge and the Breezes Resort on Zanzibar. The staff at all of these places was fantastic. We especially loved the staff, service and Jumbe, our guide, was professional, lovable and knowledgeable. Each day we saw something new and unexpected including a pack of wild dogs and hundreds of cape buffalo in one spot. The Rufiji River and associated lakes and tributaries in the northeast corner of the Selous Game Reserve rival the wildlife viewing we experienced on the northern circuit in Tanzania. We loved the river safaris with Zach mixed in with the land safaris. He and Jumbe work well together. We even had a sundowner on an island surrounded by a pod of hippopotami.
Our Safari Blue and Stone Town tours on Zanzibar were fantastic. We especially enjoyed the Safari Blue staff snorkeling and lunch. Our Stone Town guide did a great job in Zanzibar. We really liked the history museum on slavery and visiting the sultans' buildings. We had a great time visiting with local shop and bar owners and friends in the shopping area around the Slipaway in Dar es Salaam, a lovely accommodation, too.
Thank you very much Wayfairer,
The Hynes and Hedricks

Good service - more reasonably priced than high luxury
We traveled to Tanzania on Safari planned by Wayfairer travel. We used one private guide to visit three camps plus the Ngorongoro crater. Our experience was excellent. We loved our choice to have one guide and drive through the country. Wayfairer was helpful and worked with us on price. One thing I wish they had done was to let us know at the time of booking that we would need to visit a travel specialist doctor to get vaccinations. We didn't receive that information until 6 weeks before our trip and we were out of the country for business much of that time. It made our immunization visit more stressful than necessary. We loved this once in a lifetime trip and would absolutely recommend Wayfairer.

Thank you so much for your great review Lori and we're delighted that you had a wonderful, once in a lifetime trip to Tanzania! Regarding vaccination advice, please note that this is always given to you at the time of booking as well as in your pre-departure documents. Thanks once again for your feedback and it's great to hear that you'd recommend our services to others.

Great advice and seamless organisation
Had a superb trip organised by Wayfairer to Tanzania for beach and safari. Cat advised us well, listening to what we wanted to get out of it and making the organisation very easy. Choices were presented with clear understanding of the details not by reading a promotional brochure - our agent had visited all the places we went personally. On the trip, everything was seamlessly organised, and the concierge service before and during the trip was very helpful for trip bookings etc.

A great, thoughtful and experienced agency
We had a great 11 day honeymoon in Tanzania which included a city break, safari and time on the beach. The last 4 days on Mafia Island was our favourite part. We were treated very well by the staff at Pole Pole. The food was delicious and the snorkelling was fantastic. Wayfairer were extremely helpful before, during and after our stay. I particularly liked how easy it was to get in contact with them by email, phone or WhatsApp throughout my time dealing with them. Thank you.

Family trip to Southern Africa.
Wayfairer organised our trip of a life time to Zimbabwe, Zambia & Malawi. They listened to our requirements and found beautiful small personalised places to stay and the whole trip ran like clockwork. We stayed at Batonka Lodge in Victoria Falls, Flat Dogs Safari Lodge in Zambia, Huntingdon Lodge (tea plantation) and Blue Zebra Lodge ( lake Malawi).

Personalised and knowledgeable tailor-made experience
We had a wonderful holiday in Tanzania, arranged at short notice with the Wayfairer team. They were flexible in tailoring the holiday around a week we had already booked ourselves, and patient and accommodating as we tweaked things, such as putting the safari at the end. Having a dedicated concierge on hand via email at all times is a great boon when dealing with odd glitches such as taxi no-shows and changes of plane times. The safari in Ruaha was the stand-out highlight, with a truly astonishing camp experience and expert guiding. We learned so much and ate even more. We would love to return.

The Perfect Honeymoon
I can't thank Wayfairer enough for helping to plan the perfect honeymoon. They provided excellent advice about the best location for my honeymoon and the best time to visit. We settled on the Selous Game Reserve and they listened to all my feedback to create the perfect itinerary that combined safari, beach and relaxation. I'd never booked through a company like this before so I was concerned that something would go wrong. Someone would miss a transfer or not be there when they were supposed to be, but all my worries quickly melted away and the whole trip went smoothly. I would definitely book with Wayfairer again and I especially love their philosophy of responsible travel and working with companies that pay and treat their employees fairly. I think it showed in all the people we met on our trip. A++

Kilimajaro and Zanzibar
The bulk of the tour went very smoothly, all very relaxed and Wayfairer chose good quality hosts that made our stay enjoyable throughout. The service was flexible, and the team worked to tailor the tour to our very specific dates and requirements throughout, providing clear advice on what would and would not work.
The information pack we received was clearly laid out, with all relevant information provided. In particular, highlighting key restrictions at various points in the trip.
