IN THEIR OWN WORDS: MIKE & MARIA'S WAYFAIRER TRIP
Cape Town to Kruger National Park; bush to beach - this South Africa and Mauritius adventure is never to be forgotten.
With an important wedding anniversary approaching, Sherry and Joseph had long been considering an extraordinary adventure to help them mark the occasion.
It wasn’t until they got in touch with Wayfairer Travel, however, that they settled on exactly what they wanted to do.
Taking our cue from the couple’s love of wildlife, Wayfairer set about arranging an unforgettable, bespoke experience in Kenya, followed by a few days spent relaxing on Zanzibar’s white sands.
The rightful home of the safari, Kenya’s Masai Mara is too iconic to miss. Grassy plains, rolling hills and an abundance of wildlife make it an ideal choice for seekers of the Big Five. Its biodiversity means you’ll never be short of things to admire whilst on the look-out for your next lion or elephant...
“We were amazed by the number and variety of animals we saw. It was just astonishing, and on each game drive we saw something different. We even spotted an aardwolf!”
Sherry and Joseph stayed at Hemingways Ol Seki. Having read reviews online, the pair really hoped to have Raffy as their guide. Never ones to disappoint, our Luxury Travel Specialists made sure they’d get exactly what they hoped for.
“His knowledge and instincts about animals were remarkable. Raffy was incredibly open about his life as a Maasai, giving us a good understanding of their way of living. I learned so much about his habits and culture. His warmth, humour and kindness were just touching. We literally left considering him a friend.”
And things only got better from there during their beach time in Pongew Beach Hotel, Zanzibar.
“The staff at Pongwe were the most dedicated, hard-working and amiable people. The food at Pongwe was always fresh, innovative and delicious.”
Here at Wayfairer, we pride ourselves on listening carefully to our clients’ needs and understanding their truest hopes and motivations. This ensures we can craft the perfect journey for each guest.
When we asked Sherry to tell us about the highlights of her trip and how she felt, she said:
"I can’t leave out Wayfairer. From my initial point of contact to the end of our journey, the advice, knowledge, customer service and attention to detail have been outstanding. Thank you for making this the most astounding trip of our lives”
We wanted help in selecting and then putting together a two-centre trip to Africa in March 2023 to celebrate a milestone birthday. Maggie from Wayfairer was careful to find out what we wanted (and what we didn't) and came up with a range of quite detailed possibilities in different parts of the continent. Once we had settled on Sao Tome and Principe she was very responsive to a few tweaks t...
The service we got from Wayfairer was outstanding! I would recommend any use this service for trip planning~
We had a great experience with Wayfairer, who planned a magical honeymoon in Kenya for my wife and I. They really listened to our requirements and came up with the perfect itinerary for us. Communication was excellent throughout and the itinerary portal is a really useful and easy to use resource. Highly recommend!
Wayfairer helped us plan the most epic honeymoon ever! The team was incredibly responsive, creative and knowledgeable. They were able to arrange our trip with all of our “must see” bucket list items and also made wonderful suggestions for new spots all within our budget. When we reached out to the team one month before departure, they were flexible with us and helped us make additio...
Our experience with Wayfairer was superb. The communications, via email as well as phone were rapid and effective. Very flexible in meeting our needs and desires. Maggie, and subsequently, the concierge team, was amazing at adding days on at each end of the safari. The on-the-ground support was great as well. Our driver was always able and willing to answer our questions. He made sure everyt...
We enjoyed for the second time trips to Kruger it was very enjoyable and well organised by Wayfairer we will hopefully go again
Wayfairer organized a 26-day tour of Southeast Asia for us. We explored Bangkok, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Everything was perfectly planned and went off without a hitch. This is an impressive statement when you consider we stayed in 8 hotels and had 7 flights. In particular, the hotels that were chosen were some of the best we've experienced. All were boutique hotels that provided a ve...
Great support and guidance from beginning to end
Josh and Toon were very easy to work with. They did everything possible to make my trip a terrific one.
How they made everything so seamless and created a trip that was more than we could have asked for is beyond me.
