About Us

Welcome to Yellow Zebra, a highly experienced luxury and adventure travel company specialising in ‘Safari Africa’. With a team who have worked for Africa's finest safari companies we pride ourselves on a commitment to design the very best safaris.

Confused who to book with?

With a never-ending number of safari companies bidding for your business, it is often difficult to decide which safari company you should work with. Who should you trust your money with? How do you know who is genuinely an expert in their field? Every safari company seems to say that they are the true experts! All we can ask is that you scratch beneath the surface and find out how experienced a company, and especially your consultant, really is. Only then will you know whether you are being well looked after.

All our specialists were either professional safari guides, camp managers or people who were born and raised in Africa. We have members of staff who have worked for the very best companies - Londolozi, Great Plains Conservation, Wilderness Safaris, Robin Pope Safaris, Alex Walker's Serian and The Selous Safari Company. It is this level of experience that guarantees a level of knowledge and understanding of the industry that genuinely makes a difference to your trip.

Our core aim is really quite simple – to offer you the very best advice and to ensure that your holiday is logistically flawless whilst you are away in Africa. How do we prove we are capable of that? By employing the best team of experts in the business.

Europe's Leading Safari Tour Operator in 2015 and 2016

For the second year running, we have won ‘Europe’s Leading Safari Tour Operator’. The WTAs are well respected within the travel industry and we are very proud of our award!

‘Sales’ and ‘Operations’

In our opinion it goes without saying that the best advice is born out of personal experience. We believe that simply having experience of a destination is not nearly enough. One trip to Tanzania does not make you an expert – far from it!

We are very proud to say that our ‘Sales’ team is one of the most experienced in the entire industry. Our team is made up of professional guides, camp managers and expert travel advisors (from Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa) as well as three camp managers who have run some of Africa’s finest properties.

Together they have guided safaris across the whole of ‘Safari Africa’ and worked in some of the most famous camps in Africa. It is this experience that makes the difference – you are dealing with genuine experts at Yellow Zebra.

When you have finished designing your trip, ‘Operations’ then takes over. Our Operations team is in control of ensuring your trip goes flawlessly whilst you are on the ground in Africa. Their work is meticulous and is as important a role, if not more so, than designing the safari in the first place.

Abi was our first member of Operations. She is an ex-Botswana safari guide who has also run the famous Abu Camp, Ralph Bousfield’s Jack’s Camp and San Camp, as well as Richard Bonham’s phenomenal ol Donyo. Her attention to detail and experience on the ground are vital to Operations as a whole.

Today Susan and Catherine are in charge of our Operations team. Susan was one of the founding members of Bales Worldwide (which sold to Richard Branson’s Virgin), whilst Catherine has worked for ‘Operation Hunger’ in South Africa, ‘Good Hope’ in Kilimanjaro and the ‘Upendo Artist Association Children’s Home’ in Tanzania. Their extensive knowledge and experience coupled with Abi’s familiarity with logistics on the ground, guarantees our clients are well looked after from start to finish.

Our company ethos

We pride ourselves on offering value, expert knowledge and exceptional customer service. Our mission is simply to design the very best safaris. Unlike so many safari companies out there, we are not driven by commission. This may seem surprising – but with so many companies lacking genuinely specialist knowledge, true experts are very hard to come by.

We are incredibly passionate about Africa and hope to share that passion with you. We are the safari company that stands out from the herd.
