The Ultimate Guide to a Safe African Safari in 2020/2021

As the engine of adventures is starting to warm up again, the world is slowly opening up, and allowing our amazing guests to travel again while taking all precautions to protect themselves and our host community in all the destinations they get to explore. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wito Africa’s priority has been with guests’ health and safety, as well as that of our local partners, our community and our families. By working closely with local authorities and accommodation partners, we have extensively enhanced our promise to promote safe travel and ensure everyone stays safe during their unforgettable safari experiences in Africa. Many of our favourite African safari destinations are now endorsed by the globally renowned World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) for their safe travels standards. We have also implemented all the recommended health and hygiene protocols in all destinations that our guests visit as follows:

In addition to the special health and hygiene training that was provided to our team in Africa, we have also implemented a regular temperature check for all staff members to ensure they are healthy prior to hosting our guests. We find that the mandatory monitoring of temperature before/after servicing clients will give us a head start to prevention of the spread (if any). Furthermore, all safari guides will wear masks to protect you and themselves and they will have hand sanitizers handy to keep all surfaces clean at all times.

Do you know why we only offer personalized private-guided safaris? Well, because we just don’t like crowds. There’s Never a Better Place to Social Distance than in the African wilderness! Our safari guides are known to take the unbeaten path to bring you closer and more personal to the magic of the African wildlife, we follow no CROWDS. Each of our unique tailor-made trips are created just for you, you will not share a vehicle with strangers. It is that exclusive arrangement which allows you to have the full control of your experience and all the flexibility you need to plan your daily game drives with your private English-speaking safari guide, exclusive safari vehicle, and yes, you can choose exactly what you’d like to do, when you would like to start your private safari trip and where you’d like to go.

With many years in the safari tourism industry, we understand the importance of being responsive and resourceful, so that your experience is stress-free. We have excellent and considerable logistical support on the ground to ensure that even your smallest needs are met, and no detail is overlooked.

Our Guests Tell All About Their Dream Safari in Tanzania [MUST WATCH]

It's Time to Chat About Your Dream Safari.

 

At your convenience, we would love to hear from you and discuss the specifics of your trip to Africa. We’d love to get to know you better – your individual interests, travel style, expectations and budget – so that we can craft an African safari adventure that will live in your heart and mind forever!

From the very first moment, we meet and greet you in person at the arrival point of entry, during your safe unforgettable safari with us, to the time we wave you goodbye at the departure point; all safari guides will wear masks to protect you and themselves and they will have hand sanitizers handy to keep all surfaces clean at all times. Prior to your safari departure, Wito Africa will provide every guest with a complimentary face mask which is 100% reusable and washable!

One of the biggest lessons we quickly learned from the pandemic is that we need to keep each other healthy by forming “a safe bubble” , it is through this idea that we have gone ahead and carefully selected a small group of best accommodation partners who share the same commitment to keeping everyone safe during travels. Collectively, we will continue to ensure that the health of our guests, local community and staff is a top priority.

Have Questions? We have the answers.

How much does a Wito Africa safari cost?
Your total cost will vary depending on seasonality, size of group and specific travel arrangements, but this is a good guideline for an all-inclusive safari (everything except international flights): $499 USD per person per day for 3-star accommodation $699 USD pp per day for 4-star $999+ USD pp per day for 5-star It’s worth noting that, depending on your itinerary, your lodge cost will make up about 75–85% of your total safari trip cost.
Where to stay in Tanzania?
Just for you, we have hunted out the very best lodges, villas, camps and even treehouses in Tanzania to suit every budget, itinerary and personal preference. Trust us – you’re going to be spoilt for choice! An awe-inspiring setting is just the beginning… Every one of our recommended accommodation options will blow you away with personal service, attention to detail and various levels of luxury.

What is an average day like in the Serengeti?
When it comes to the Serengeti, there is no such thing! Every day promises its own, unique delights. Your guide will be in constant communication with other guides in the area to find out what the herds are up to, and you will have a chat each evening to make a plan for the following day. Sometimes, the herds will be just around the camp or within a half hour’s drive, and at other times you may need to pack a picnic breakfast and/or lunch in order travel further afield. These days out, exploring all that the Serengeti has to offer, are never predictable but always an adventure. We recommend that you set aside a minimum of four nights to spend in the Serengeti so that you really can make the most of this remarkable part of the world.
When is the best time to go on safari in Tanzania?
The classic time to visit Tanzania is during the main dry season, from June to October, when good weather conditions can be expected across the country and wildlife viewing should be spectacular. Another major highlight is the migration calving season in Serengeti (December – March), which coincides with good trekking conditions on Kilimanjaro and fair weather down on the coast, too.
