I recently visited Tanzania for two weeks, and the locations I planned to visit were different from the Serengeti and Arusha regions, a bit off the beaten path. I had learned of Wayo via a podcast, and from the moment I contacted them, the personalized planning, preparation, and booking were outstanding. I worked with their US agent, and she was... More

We are a little hesitant on how to rate this 8 day trip without sounding trite. From start to finish, Zeff, Joseph, George and Brian as our guides were responsive, informative, and just fun and easy to be with. Osammi (sp?) and Vinny kept us cared for and well fed. The entire trip, we felt that we were in the... More

This was our first experience staying in a Wayo camp and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The location is terrific as the camp is situated perfectly for viewing the animals who come to drink. We were taken care of extremely well. Jackson was a wonderful host and "Doctor" made the most delicious meals for us. Can't wait... More

i travelled alone to Tanzania for 20 days and was accompanied on the whole trip by the Wayo guide Joseph. He was fantastic - a good driver, knowledgeable, and mellow and attentive to my needs and interests.

Wayo Africa is absolutely amazing. I began planning my safari/Zanzibar trip about 10 months before I planned to go. I was debating between two companies with similar itineraries - I chose Wayo based on 'gut feel.' And it did not disappoint! I worked with Lana Bayal who is incredible - so knowledgeable and made sure she really understood what I... More

We are family of six (four children 15,13, 10,8) and it was a tough job to chose a company that would fit our needs. So after long deliberations we decided to chose Wayo and we were not dissapointed.
