Guide training


Wayo Africa has been training nature guides (safari guides) in Tanzania for more than 15 years and offers professional, dedicated and career development training to guides in the tourism/safari industry. We are proud to say that we have trained hundreds of guides on many of our diverse courses specifically designed for the guiding environment.

What we do
Our courses provide a well structured combination of both academic and practical elements to enhance the learning programme and ensure that the learner derives the most from the training. We conduct a number of courses such as:

However, you are welcome to contact us to tailor make a course specific to your companies needs and we will present this course at a venue of your choice.

Where we do it

We train in a diverse range of environments with courses usually held in a tented camp in one of the National Parks. This enables the learner to get the most out of the practical aspect of the course while still learning the theory as the foundation to meeting the high standards.

We can come to you – courses can also be held at the clients premises, whether in town or at a lodge in the bush.

Why we do it

Wayo is passionate about guiding and believes that one never stops learning. So as guides we should be continually refreshing and expanding our knowledge in order to provide the best wildlife experience possible to every guest that passes through our hands. We believe in achieving minimum standards and we strive and encourage everyone involved to aim for and guide above these high standards.
