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.

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.

Family Safari Experience

Wayfairer Travel planned an amazing trip for a family which lived to our every expectation and more. The lodges we stayed in were superbly located and Excellently appointed. The views from Rhino Ridge were incredible, giving tempting glimpses of the safaris awaiting. Thonga Beach Lodge is located on an incredible Indian Ocean beach which stretched for miles and often was deserted.
Menus were varied and imaginative. The policies employed by the Lodges to employ staff from local villages is very beneficial to the communities and it was enriching to meet local people.

A brilliant family trip of a lifetime

From my initial telephone conversation with Thea until my follow up call with Carmen when we arrived back home the experience and organisation was outstanding. Definitely the best family trip we’ve ever had and the organisation and communication from the wayfairer team was second to none. Heartily recommend!

Great Tanzanian Adventure

Wayfairer Travel set up a wonderful trip for me to sister lodges Lake Manze and Madonya Old River on the southern circuit and flights with Coastal Aviation. From booking to the last flight back to Dar Es Salaam every minute was first class. Pre-trip service by Wayfairer was super and both lodges, game drives and flights exceeded my every expectation. Trip of a lifetime!!
