We recently spent 2 incredible nights at Wayo’s Green Camp in Manyara NP. This location is exceptional - at the base of a series of waterfalls coming off the Rift Valley Escarpment. The camp consists of a number of large luxury fixed tents with great amenities, a private outside toilet and shower with hot water and a communal tent to relax in. The guys running the camp, Vincent and Nuru, were excellent. We were fortunate to be the only ones staying for the 2 nights so they changed our meal locations all the time - from lunch under a boulder at the base of the waterfall to our final dinner being in the waterfalls as the sun set!! There was a high water level in the lake and the waterfall due to exceptional rains this year which meant the canoe trip was a bit of a bust but this is an amazing place to stay if you are heading to Manyara NP. Sitting in the camp and having elephants, buffalo and troops of baboons close by and dipping into the waterfalls for a refreshing fresh water pummeling will be a lasting memory of an amazing 2 day / night experience!

For a nice change of pace, we canoed on Lake Manyara with great guides, Zaki and Peter. It was fun and relaxing, even though we didn't see any wildlife while canoeing. After the canoeing, our wonderful Gosheni guide William, had set up a picnic lunch for us to enjoy.

Our Wayo Africa Serengeti safari was amazing! Wayo has several green camps (glamping) throughout the massive park so you stay very close to the animals in their natural environment. The sunrises and sunsets are unforgettable, the migration is humbling and will affect you in a very positive way. We saw dozens of animals and bird species. The guides are very experienced, your safety is imperative as is the safety of the animals and the environment. Often in the Serengeti we were the only vehicle/people I could see in any direction. Camps were awesome, comfortable, yes a shower could happen daily, food was superb. Note: Wayo is the only safari co that has permission for their guests to hike with guides in the park. That was fantastic to do 15km through the Serengetti to meet up with the other guides and vehicles where cocktails, snacks and a sunset awaited us. I highly recommended Wayo!

It's been 1.5 years since our trek in the Serengeti with Wayo, and I say sincerely that I think about our safari weekly, still (note that we were there in September 2018). We were a group of 5 guests, with experienced guides Jean and Prim, as well as a few other folks connected to Wayo. We had a ranger (Deyo) in attendance for the entire trek. Before embarking on our walking safari, Prim took us on a game drive where we saw hippos, elephants, baboons and various other wildlife up close. Subsequently, we walked for 8 days (usually between 13 to 17 kms/day), starting at a permanent camp and working our way roughly northward, if I recall correctly, to another semi-permanent camp. Each night, all the camping materials were taken by vehicle to the next campsite and set up for us, with a hot shower prepared, and a beautiful meal prepared and served by wonderful and congenial Wayo staff (Vincent, Pahlka, et a.). The wildlife was ASTONISHING. Wildebeest by the 1000s, wild elephants, zebras, giraffes, monkeys, baboons, impalas, dik diks, Thompson gazelles, cape buffalo, warthogs, lions, hyenas, vultures...I could go on and on. Prim and Jean were exquisitely knowledgeable about the fauna and flora, and answered all our questions with patience, and kept our safety foremost. They approached the trek with a blend of humour and seriousness. One day, we came upon a poachers' camp, abandoned just minutes before we got there (2 unfortunate topi were the prey). Another day, we sat quietly, eating lunch, observing a group of male elephants at a watering hole. Magical. Staff went far above and beyond helping us troubleshoot. But in addition to the wonders we saw, heard, smelled, and touched, there was also an inner journey taking place. Imagine walking where your ancestors of 150,000 years ago walked. We used to live in harmony with the magnificent balancing act of life and death in the Serengeti, and it was sobering to realize how de-natured and alienated from the biosphere my life is, living in a big city in North America. It was a comfort somehow to be so confronted with life and death, every day on our trek. Natural and normal. I returned to regular life, but implemented a daily meditation practice I've stuck with, I've walked in the local forest almost every weekend, and I will be leaving a career that no longer speaks to me. These have been profound changes that I attribute to our time in the Serengeti, and for which I am very grateful to our hosts. On our last night, watching the sun set and moon rise at the same time, looking out from some warm rocks over the wildebeest and zebras, I promised myself I would come back to the Serengeti. I will choose Wayo to guide me again when I do.

We have just returned from a holiday in Tanzania. Wayo Africa were amazing and their guides - there were three - as we were a group of 13 people, were fantastic. Our trip included Manyara Lake, Serengeti, Trangaire etc. The accommodation was very good, camps and in some cases lodges. They were very mindful of our securing regarding animals. However, it was the knowledge of all the guides which was wonderful. They could spot animals anywhere and we saw lions, cheetahs and leopards, plus a rhino. We also witnessed the wilderbeest migration. The guides were so knowledgeable about Masai lifestyle and they were very proud of their country, righly so. They were always pleasant even though we had long days etc. My husband have travelled a lot and I can easily say this was one of the best trips we have ever had and all thanks to Wayo.
