At Whywander we are full of curiosity… so we design travel itineraries that unravel those secrets and discover hidden experiences. Every holiday, adventure or event we plan is tailored to the specific needs of our wanderers and the type of experience they are looking for. Whywander is a luxury boutique travel consultancy that goes beyond the traditional role and becomes something of a trusted confidante. Our own passion for seeing the world and discovering new places has inspired us to create similar experiences for those ready to idly follow a winding course.

By creating bespoke travel experiences that encompass travel arrangements, hotel bookings, restaurant recommendations, shopping locations, sites, sounds, smells and everything in between, Whywander acts as the invisible travel guide that comes along with you on every trip. Since 2010, we’ve designed experiences for honeymooners, families, multi-generational family reunions & retreats, but also birthday gatherings, destination weddings and adventure trips that span from New Zealand to Bora Bora and the world in between.

We are proud to be part of the exclusive Traveller Made network, giving us access to many unique experiences and allows us to give our wanderers a vast array of exclusive perks.

Meet The Team

Reem Shaath is the Founder & Chief Wandering Officer of Whywander

In 2010, she decided it was time to follow her dream and live her passion: giving up doing what’s conventionally ‘right’ for a life of travelling wanders. By creating WhyWander, Reem shares her love of travel and adventures. In her quest to discover the world, she climbed three mountains, swam with whale sharks in the Philippines, had breakfast with giraffes in Nairobi, slept in tents in the Andean mountains and snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef. She also thoroughly enjoys being pampered in luxury, like staying on a private island in the Seychelles. Reem’s always looking for her next opportunity to wander; it’s just a question of when and where.

Daniela is a Whywander Travel Designer

She was born and raised in Brazil but lived in Spain, England, Chile and now in Dubai. She is the South America expert and puts a touch of samba at Whywander. A travel lover, a curious soul and always up for a party, outdoor activities and cultural discoveries. Her favorite destination? Hard to say. She loves the nature of New Zealand and Chile, the beaches of Venezuela and Brazil, the city life of Barcelona and Rio de Janeiro and the culture of Mongolia and Tibet.

Sara is a Whywander Travel Designer

She was born and bred in Riyadh, and lived in Lucerne, Montreal and finally settled in Jordan.  She is passionate about creating luxurious journeys for our clients, with some of the most exclusive experiences. An avid traveller, one of her favorite places in the world is Positano, where she enjoyed the unique picturesque views of the Italian seaside, the delicious spaghetti seafood dishes and their irresistible lemon cookies!

Maha is a Whywander Travel Designer

She was born and raised in Riyadh, lived in London, and now spends her time travelling, combining her passion for adventure, exotic cultures and love for food. From salmon fishing in the rivers of Alaska, to sharing a feast with Indian locals in the coastal city of Cochin, India; Maha’s love for adventures is balanced with her love for luxury and elegance. She enjoys sunbathing on the black sands of Santorini and (badly) snowboarding on the glamorous slopes of Courchevel. Maha is always looking for the next meal and the next adventure in the next city.
