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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
