Wayo Africa Walking

Wayo means Footprint - walking is our thing!

Walking Safaris

Adventurous and active way to explore the Tanzanian wilderness and culture


Walking is where Wayo began - we have been doing it for over 25 years - this drive to allow people to reconnect with the environment around them out of the safari vehicle. A light footprint exploration! Taught by the indigenous people of Tanzania, walks are safe, respectful, educational and above all - unique!
