Who We Are & How We Work

Be it Tanzania, Botswana, Uganda or Rwanda, our local experts will take you beyond the guidebooks — and show you the beauty of Africa in a whole new light

Who We Are

Wito Africa Safaris is a boutique tour operator with an endless passion for wildlife conservation, community empowerment, and protecting our natural world. Our trips are meticulously created around Africa’s remote and untouched safari destinations to offer you unparalleled wildlife viewing without the crowds.

Be it Tanzania, Botswana, Uganda or Rwanda, our local experts will take you beyond the guidebooks — and show you the beauty of Africa in a whole new light. We will put together a tailor-made safari looking after you from the point you arrive until you leave. Ultimately, we are passionate about offering you a personalized African safari experience that will live in your heart and mind forever!

the Wito Africa Experience & Guarantee

At Wito Africa Safaris, giving our customers unbiased advice and exceptional safari experiences is what we live and breathe. Our Africa safari experts are well-travelled, passionate about wildlife, community and conservation, and have in-depth first-hand knowledge of the places they suggest. To ensure these offerings live up to the expectations of our discerning guests, the Wito Africa safari experts routinely inspect new lodges, experiences, and activities. Nothing beats current, pertinent travel advice obtained directly from a local expert.

 

Africa is not just our passion but our home – we know our motherland like the back of our hands. We have excellent and considerable logistical support in Africa to ensure that even your tiniest needs are met and that no detail is overlooked. 

 

Being on safari with a professional safari guide is immensely fun, insightful and adventurous — we work with the most friendly, detailed oriented and charismatic team of local naturalist guides in Africa. Unlike planning your safari with large safari operators (or specialists who have only visited Africa a few times as tourists before they start offering trips to guests), at Wito Africa, we will “handpick” your safari guide not only based on their knowledge and experience but also their ability to adapt to our guest’s discerning needs and personality.

 

With our extensive first-hand knowledge of the fauna, birds and flora, as well as the local tribes and cultures, we will guarantee that nothing goes unanswered during your safari experience with us. We ONLY offer responsible, professionally guided wildlife safaris that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.

 

As an independent boutique company, Wito Africa is not tied to any particular local safari operator, lodge or camp. Therefore, we can give you honest advice and genuine recommendations for the best value and the ultimate African safari experience.

From the moment you reach out to us, our Africa safari experts will work alongside you to understand your hopes and expectations and guide you through the planning process. We pride ourselves on our personal, honest advice, which will allow you to make informed decisions and get the most out of your time and budget.

 

As soon as we capture what you want to see and experience, we will carefully match you with the perfect accommodation options (safari camps, lodges and resorts), suggest our favourite wildlife sanctuaries, and even handpick your safari guides. Our experts will take care of every element of your Africa safari trip from start to end.

 

As much as we love to share our passion for Africa with you, we also want you to get the most out of every travel dollar. Over many years of working and living in Africa, our team has built strong relationships with Africa’s top camps, lodges and other local suppliers, allowing us to pass along our best rates to you. A safari booked through us will never be more expensive than it would have been if you had booked directly. In the unlikely event that you find a cheaper quote for the same trip that we offer from a reputable North American tour operator, we will match that quote.

 

All the essential information will be provided in a booklet (along with your itinerary) to help you prepare well for your safari in Africa with us. By booking your trip with Wito Africa, you will be provided more realistic expectations than trying to figure everything out on your own based on suggestions from booking engines or big off-the-shelf packaged companies that have never been to Africa. 

How We Work

As Africa safari experts, we will help you plan your dream trip to the tee. The Wito Africa team is experienced in transforming even your vaguest safari expectations into a memorable experience. We take pride in ensuring your safari is safe, engaging and informative so you can experience the magic of Africa’s wilderness with joy and complete peace of mind.

Every travel experience created by a Wito Africa expert will be as unique as a zebra’s stripes. We specialize in the details that turn your safari experience into world-class, once-in-a-lifetime memories. During the safari planning stage, our team will get to know every client – their interests, hopes, expectations and budget – so we can craft a safari adventure they will never forget.

This is how we plan your tailor-made African safari experience

Wito Africa is about helping you plan a dream safari, a unique bucket list adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime African adventure that will live in your memory forever! Our passion for creating extraordinary experiences for travellers fuels our drive to always look out for that unique property, an intimate hidden gem off the beaten path that many mainstream operators do not usually offer. We are constantly looking for that special something most places cannot provide. There is nothing generic about Wito Africa – we go all out for you!

 

At Wito Africa, we know very well just how precious a first safari can be to people who have not had the chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat. There is nothing like seeing a playful baby elephant, a pride of lions hunting or an elegant giraffe walking gracefully in the wild. However, going on a safari requires proper planning and perfect execution. 

 

If you can dream it, we can help you plan everything! 

Whether you want to experience the thrilling adventures of the great wildebeest migration, encounter the last remaining wild gorilla and chimpanzees, explore authentic local cultures and cuisine, conquer the highest peak of Africa (Mount Kilimanjaro), or rejuvenate on the white sand beaches of Zanzibar, we can take care of everything for you from start to finish.

 

Three effortless steps to help you plan your dream African safari like a Pro:

 

Step 1: DREAM with our experts – explore our website for itinerary inspiration. 

 

Step 2: PLAN with the help of our experts – tell us the specifics of your perfect trip. A quick call or email works best!

 

Step 3: GO! Review your perfect trip and go!

 

Managing the expectations of our discerning guests, understanding their interests, attention to detail, and going above and beyond to create the ultimate personalized safari experience keep travelers coming back for more. Our happy customers consistently state, wow, you have exceeded our expectations, or this was the best trip of our lifetime. We hope you will also be impressed by how smooth, safe and secure your trip to Africa with us truly is.
