Carmen was amazing!
5/5

We travelled to Johannesburg from Tampa and were the first international travelers at both resorts we went to. jaci’s tree house was wonderful and the staff was so attentive. The bartender was the best, his name was Lucky and he would even anticipate the cocktails we would like. The game drives were full of big five viewing and our guide was outstanding. They second reserve we went to with Wayfarer’s suggestion was Leobo. Wow! The observatory was beyond our wildest expectations and the staff is now our friends- you have to look this place up!!! We cannot recommend it enough. We had helicopter rides, game drives, keep drive, ATV’s, paint balling, clay shooting- you name it we did it! Love wayfarer for putting this all together seamlessly!!

Thoughtful and detailed operator to provide the most amazing safari trip for our family
5/5

This is not a normal year. We are still in the heat of the battle with Covid-19, and yet our family had chosen to travel the world during this time. When we decided to put Kenya and safaris on our itinerary, we had no clue where to begin. We hadn’t even gone to any place in Africa before and our family had a teenager and a toddler!

Not only did Wayfairer responded to our general initial enquiry quickly, their sales representative asked thoughtful questions to work out the most ideal itinerary that met our budget and other requirements.

We went to three different safari locations during the trip and each step was seamless. Food and water were delicious and clean. Our family did not encounter any unpleasant surprises. That included planning our PCR tests and other entry and exit requirements carefully since traveling nowadays involve so much more processes.

Thank you Wayfairer and we will definitely work with them again.

Kenya Safari 2021
5/5

As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to go to Africa. Kenya was on one of the lists of countries I could get into with the travel restrictions. I bought my flight ticket and was completely stumped after that. I came across Wayfairer Travel and easily got in touch with Leonie. She helped me narrow down my broad African desires to a two-week long trip. Everything was laid out for me and planned. While I was on the trip I was thinking "there is NO way I would have known to book that (things like transportation between airports and hotels, how to book the small in-between flights, etc)". I stayed mainly with the Hemingways chain and was so impressed at every location.
My lifelong trip to (part of) Africa was simplified and I was able to enjoy my time there to the fullest and not worry about anything.

Made travel in 2020 a breeze!
5/5

Overall, we are super happy we used Wayfairer Travel for our East African honeymoon. Everything was well designed and thoughtfully tailored for exactly what we were looking for. Carmen and Leonie did an incredible job to make this trip happen this year. Travel during the pandemic can certainly be a little challenging, and without their help, our dream trip wouldn't have been possible.
Both Leonie and Carmen did an excellent job communicating when plans changed due to pandemic-related reasons. They quickly found the perfect alternative to a shift in our itinerary and we loved that things were taken care of smoothly. It never felt like our trip was interrupted and we never felt stressed at all during our time in Africa.
When it came to navigating getting required COVID testing to move on to our next destination, the Wayfairer Team worked carefully with local travel team to get our tests schedule and paperwork organized while we enjoyed our honeymoon. The whole process was not troublesome at all and we were glad we could move about safely.
Traveling right now is a unique and amazing experience. It is absolutely possible to travel right now. Your tourist dollar is vital to the survival of local communities and Wayfairer values this relationship. They worked to make everything special for us and it meant so much.
There was a lot to navigate (this trip was a year in the making) and Wayfairer went above and beyond to deliver the absolute dream trip we wanted.
We highly recommend going with Wayfairer to organize your safari trip.

Maggie did a phenomenal job booking the trip pf a lifetime that encompassed everything I wanted.
5/5

This was my first time using assistance booking a trip and it was so much more pleasant not having to worry about any changes or keep track of the bookings. The expertise Wayfairer provided regarding the destinations visited was invaluable and much better than if I had researched on my own. I felt completely comfortable with the itinerary and truly relaxed to enjoy the journey.

Best holiday ever
5/5

I book with Wayfairer because Tom who organised my holiday is incredible. This is the third holiday I have booked with this company. Each time Tom has surpassed all expectations. The safari at lake manze was wonderful. This was a bucket list for me and I can't believe what a wonderful time I had. Milli and Sean (lake manze mangers) we're wonderful, kind, helpful and very resourceful. No only did we see a multitude of animals we had incredible experiences. I can't thank them enough. Went to Mafia Island for some RnR. It's like paradise, swimming with whale sharks speechless.
Thank you Tom for arranging this. Please thank Milli and Sean at lake maze from us as well.
See you next year xx

Hassle free travel
5/5

I contacted Wayfairer at short notice when I had a Kenya trip coming up. I had shopped around various tour providers and most seemed to offer the same places with little real differentiation. I had a quick chat with Wayfairer and they put together a package to suit us. What I liked about it was all of the places were very unique and I hadn't come across them during any of my other research. Everything from then on was handled very simply. We had two nights at Saruni Samburu which is probably the best place I've stayed at in my life. Then two nights at Saruni Rhino which was a fun experience getting to track rhinos. Then 3 nights at Basecamp Wild in the Massai Mara. The Mara had so much wildlife it was amazing. Really enjoyed the whole experience.

could not have been organised any better, first class.
5/5

From start to finish what impressed me was the constant communication from wayfairer keeping me updated on everything i needed to know, The hotels were fantastic with views looking out onto lakes or grasslands with animals on your doorstep.
Our guide was Olais Joseph who i can not praise highly enough for his wildlife knowledge and the extra mile he went everyday to find what we wanted to see.
A first class holiday which blew my expectations out of the water.

Thanks again to all concerned
