Life at Yellow Zebra

Join the Herd

Yellow Zebra is built on the knowledge, skills, and passion of the people who work here. As a growing company, we’re always looking for the right people to join our team! Do you want to be part of the fastest-expanding safari company in the UK?

Our vision

Since the company was founded, Rory and Julian (co-founders) have been determined to create one of the best safari companies in the industry. It’s only been seven years, but YZ has already been recognised as Europe’s Leading Safari Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards for six years in a row. The key to our success is our staff. Our sales approach is unlike that of many other companies, as our team is encouraged to design safaris that they would go on themselves, rather than put together trips that provide the biggest commissions. What is more, all of our safari consultants are also professional safari guides, camp managers, and/or people who were born and raised in Africa.

''It is incredibly important to us that our staff see a career in working for the company. The simple goal is that we create a company that our team have no reason to leave.''

Great working enviroment

YZ offers a fantastic working environment in an open-plan office in the heart of Kingston upon Thames, with views over the market square. It’s just 20 minutes by train from London Waterloo.

There’s music, staff parties, and monthly social events, and everyone can take part as much or as little as suits them. The Christmas party in 2017 saw the entire team travel via Eurostar to Paris, where we enjoyed private hire of a wonderful French restaurant and explored the city!

 
 

A few other reasons to join...

  • Learn from some of the most experienced professionals in the travel business
  • Work for a company that is responsible, conservation focused, transparent, and honest
  • Love your job and grow with the company! (YZ staff don’t seem to leave – that’s proof in itself of a great working environment)
  • Work in a non-pressurised environment – this is a major difference between YZ and our competition
  • Accrue extra annual leave for years worked at YZ.
