Family holiday trip of a life time!
5/5

We had wanted to have a safari trip as a family that we would always remember, and our holiday to Tanzania was even better than our expectations. Much of this was down to the smooth schedule and connections organised by Wayfairer. The local operators used were perfect, extremely knowledgeable of the wildlife and very considerate to our inquisitive children. Wayfairer were on hand during our trip (even over the Christmas holiday period) to answer queries. We couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Excellent First Class Safari from the day we contacted Wayfairer to the day we return home.
5/5

Wayfairer was easy to work with, pricing was good and the Safari experience was wonderful!
We have been to Africa many times but your Kenya (Saruni Samburu and Saruni Wild) adventure ranks among our favorite Africa experiences. Thank Cat von Bredon for recommending Saruni Lodges where we were treated like special guests from the time we landed in Narobi to the day we left Saruni Wild. The wildlife is varied and plentiful.

Wayfairer helped me to put together a self directed safari that was a trip of a lifetime!
5/5

Wayfairer did a great job helping put together a self directed safari that began in Windhoek, Namibia ending three weeks later in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It was a trip of a lifetime. At the outset we spent about a month batting ideas and potential itineraries back and forth until we were able to settle on an plan that fit my goals, budget, and time available for the trip. Over the next several months Wayfairer's concierge service was available to answer questions as they popped into mind as well as offering reminders as the trip approached, making sure I had the necessary immunizations and other similar details settled so that there would be no unwanted surprises when it came time to depart. And it was great having Wayfairer as a support team when my day of departure arrived and circumstances beyond my control made me miss my flight. I rearranged my flights while Wayfairer was able to reorganize accomodations and transportation in Windhoek last minute. I arrived a day later than planned, but I was greeted in Windhoek by Wayfairer's partners in country and they did a great job of adapting to my delayed arrival. On top of all of the delays, a checked bag got lost somewhere along the way. I thought I'd have to wait in Windhoek for the bag to arrive, but they assured me that I should start my safari and they'd see to it that the bag would catch up to me. Much to my surprise, the next day, hundreds of miles away at a lodge out in the middle of nowhere, my bag showed up no worse for wear. The 4x4 Toyota they arranged was perfect for the adventure, and the rental included the replacement of ruptured tires at no cost, border transfer paperwork, an ice chest for the trip, and a prepaid cell phone with every phone number you might need already programmed into the phone. Having all that in hand made the trip a lot less stressful, knowing that there was a support team a phone call away. I stayed at many lodges, ranging in size from just a few guests to maybe a hundred quests. I didn't have a bad experience at any of them and stayed at a few that I really hope to visit again and spend more time at the location. I met loads of fun and interesting people, accomplished all of my goals, and can't wait to put together another trip like this in the future. It truly was a trip of a lifetime and Wayfairer was great partner helping me to put this whole thing together. I'm an experienced traveler and don't generally look for help when planning a trip, but this trip required a lot of planning and organization, and the experienced folks at Wayfairer made the planning of this trip so much easier than it would have been if I'd try to do this on my own. I'm very happy with every aspect of this trip and would definitely recommend Wayfairer if you're looking for help putting together an amazing trip. Special thanks to Josh, Carmen, and Toon. Cheers!

Cannot praise the Wayfairer team enough
5/5

The experience we had from Wayfairer was nothing short of first-class.

Yes, the places we stayed and visited were exceptional, however it is important to distinguish between these and the services that were provided by Wayfairer in terms of putting together our trip; this is a review of Wayfairer as a travel agent.

The sales process was pleasant and pushy like some of the others. They took time to understand our goals from this trip and were happy to offer ideas as well as match our needs.

Their choice of local partners (a critical part of the trip; things like safari guide, transfers etc.) was everything we could have hoped for and more, the best service and experience we have ever had. Everything just worked.

Communication was excellent throughout the process.

Even while we were on our trip they were able and happy to answer queries via their Concierge.

We will be using them again and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Thank you Wayfairer for an amazing honeymoon in Kenya!
5/5

Can't speak highly enough about the Wayfairer team on this trip. The safari we booked in the Masai Mara was exceptional - We wanted an experience that was more off the beaten path and both the camps (Offbeat Mara and Kecheche Valley) were perfect! From the food to the guides to the transportation, everything was coordinated very well. We particularly loved the hot air balloon ride on our third day. Thank you!

A once in a lifetime experience in Africa filled with nature, its animals and wonderful people
5/5

For our honeymoon, we booked with Wayfairer our African Safari. We booked on short notice and the whole team made a big effort to get us the best experience we wanted. We couldn't have booked with a better operator and we can only recommend booking with Wayfairer as our travels to Tanzania were stunning and 100% fulfilling. The experience we were looking for and more...

We first spent 4 nights at the Impala Camp in Selous. The Camp and its stuff are wonderful. The food, the Safari, and the accommodation were absolutely amazing. We loved being there and couldn't wish for more. Our tent was located in front of the river, right there where the hippos are. After the Impala Camp, we traveled to Ruaha and spent another 4 nights at the Mdonya Old River Camp. This small Camp is one of a kind because the dry River attracts lots of animals right in front of the tents. And during our time we woke up in the morning and saw already Zebras and Impalas grazing in front. The view is incredible and also Elefants are visiting the camp regularly. The staff and the camp managers Kings & Iris are wonderful people and we enjoyed a great time, the dinners are special as you meet at the fireplace first to exchange what happened during the day. It's interesting to hear what other tourists saw and experienced during the day being on Safari. Afterward, we always had dinner together which was very nice. The Safaris tour guides in Mdonya are very well trained and we could have spent easily another couple of days learning from them and hear their knowledge about the wildlife. On both Safaris we were alone during the day in an open Jeep.

Thanks a lot to the whole team of Wayfairer and especially to Josh who made a big effort to book everything in time.

Asante sana!

Perfect Safari Experience!
5/5

Tom and the team at Wayfairer Travel did an excellent job listening to what my wife and I wanted in a safari experience and delivered on our expectations. I plan on recommending their services to my friends, family and colleagues.

We ended up staying at a small camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve. On safari, we were able to see the Big Five game animals and were treated well by our driver and tracker. For one morning, we got out of the jeep and tracked giraffes. It was an amazing experience. In terms of the lodge itself, the food was at a very high standard, the rooms were beautiful, and we had a view of the game reserve from our pool (imagine watching giraffes and elephants cross and open field a few hundred meters away... amazing!).

If you're traveling to Africa and plan on going on Safari, reach out to Wayfairer. They'll deliver on everything you're hoping for.

Wayfairer Travel delivered a truly unique experience. Everything was top notch!
5/5

Wayfairer Travel was extremely responsive to our desires and requirements and kept in contact with us throughout the planning process as well as the actual trip. The safari exceeded all of our expectations - the accommodations were excellent, the food was wonderful and the our week long Tanzania safari was AWESOME! Our itinerary took us to Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti where we saw not only the "Big FIve" ( Lion, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Elephant, and Leopard), but also cheetahs, giraffes, topi, gazelles, hyenas, jackals, zebras, impalas, baboons, blue monkeys, wildebeests, hippos, to name a few and countless species of birldlife. We could not have asked for a better experience. . Wayfairer Travel selected the test greeters, guides, accommodations, and itinerary that we could have wished for. We were most happy that we chose Wayfairer Travel for our first safari.
