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.

It was great. Carmen reached out many times to check how things were going. Wayfairer helped us book in really nice extras like massages during our stopovers, which converted a long flight into a great experience. The safari was amazing.

From our first contact with wayfairer we felt confident we had found the operator we wanted .
They came up with an itinerary that suited us fa more than the other three operators we had spoken to.
The trip itself was superb, excelling our expectations.

5/5

The most wonderful experience. Loved working with Wayfairer, they were so organized, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Every thing went smooth from picking up and returning to the airport, transportation to and from the camps. Everyone was extremely friendly. If you had a question, they responded promptly. I would definitely use this company again.

Words are not enough!
5/5

From start to finish, perfectly organised. The team would do anything to accomodate our request, being readily available at any time of the day. Every day we were treated with a small surprise for our honeymoon. Safari was amazing and we managed to see the big 5 in a day. The driver and the lodge personel were knowledgeable and friendly and have managed to give us an unforgetable experience. Overall amazing, would not change a bit..

Professional
5/5

They were honest and described places truthfully. They were not just another agent. Very impressed and I am not impressed easily! Equally were fair about prices . They listened to the fact as a family we wanted accommodations and service to make that all work for us. Without endless kids clubs. We wanted our children to be part of the holiday.
