Overview

The Wayo Serengeti Walking Camp (Central) is located in the Kilimafedha area near Banagi camp. The walks will take place in the Serengeti Wilderness Zone.

In general, the program of the day is an early wake up with breakfast in camp, start the walk soon after breakfast, this way we miss the heat of the day. We carry lunch with us and enjoy it in a scenic place whilst on the walk. We plan to be back in camp around 15:00 for a relaxing afternoon. We can also go on a short afternoon walk ending in a scenic place with sundowner drinks.

Guests on walks can expect to see various species of mammals; the most common been Impala, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Warthog, Buffalo and Elephant. Obviously we would like to give some of these plenty of space thus for safety and respect to the animals, we do not approach animals unnecessary close and rather enjoy viewing them from outside the confines of a vehicle at a distance. Besides the mammals it is an ideal way to view a huge variety of woodland bird species as well as plants, insects, reptiles and amphibians.

We have a back up vehicle and small camp crew who can assist in case of emergencies and who will be responsible for moving the camp to new locations. Guests never need to carry more than a day backpack with water and personal equipment needed for only that walk.

If a walking safari is longer than two nights, we move the camp once. The camp will stay in one location for walks of only 2 nights and the walks will be circular day walks in to different areas around the camp. Our walks are not strenuous and will rarely walk further than 15km per day, over gentle hills. However we can tailor our walks to suit your guests comfort and fitness level since most of our walks are private walks for only your group. However, a guest need to have a fair level of fitness and be able to walk for at least 5 km per day on uneven terrain in order to enjoy the experience.

An extremely experienced walking guide will be guiding all walks. This guide will carry a high caliber rifle and he can actually use it. Our guides have been trained to not only guide safe walks but to also bring across the essence of a walking safari and to make guests realize just how special they are having the opportunity to explore this remote corner of bush, all alone and on foot. An armed TANAPA ranger will also join the walk.

Tents are 2.5m x 2.5m dome tents, thick mattresses on the ground but still 100% linen bedding. The bathrooms for the walking camps are not attached to the main tent but set up a few meters away. The bathroom space still is a large and comfortable with a shallow pit latrine, hanging bucket showers and basins for face washing.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
