Winner Announcement!

We're really excited to announce the winners of our Tanzania safari competition are... Justin Plus Lauren!!

Thanks so much to everyone that entered. We had so many fantastic entries and it was very hard to pick a winner, but Justin Plus Lauren's entry stood out. The panel loved the beautiful imagery and evocative writing.

We can't wait to see how Justin and Lauren get on in Tanzania next year!


Yellow Zebra love Tanzania! And now we’re launching a competition for bloggers with an amazing prize… a luxury safari worth over £10,000 to Tanzania’s most fabulous safari destinations.

If you’re a blogger and you love to travel, enter our competition for a chance to win this once-in-a-lifetime trip! Simply write a blog-style piece about the best holiday that you’ve ever experienced, tell us why you’d like to go to Tanzania, and, if you win, we’ll fly you and a guest into the world-renowned Northern Circuit.

Between leisurely breakfasts overlooking the Serengeti and sundowners featuring views of Mount Kilimanjaro, you’ll enjoy safari game drives surrounded by colossal herds of elephant in Tarangire, encounter the phenomenal Great Migration of about two million wildebeest, and marvel at all the big cats and other predators that follow the thundering procession.

Although we’ve designed this safari to be as action-packed as possible, you’ll still be able to enjoy some superb luxuries, from the dreamy tented suites to the private plunge pools and spas that characterise the Lemala camps: Kili Villas, Mpingo Ridge, and Kuria Hills.

how to enter

We’re asking you to write a blog post about the best holiday you’ve ever been on – whether it was a childhood adventure or a romantic honeymoon. You can go into as much or as little detail as you like, as long as your post exceeds 300 words. Make sure you mention you’re entering our competition and tell us why you would like to go on a Tanzanian safari, including a link to our Tanzania safari page.

Share your entry on an Instagram post telling us about your best holiday using the hashtag #TanzaniaWithYZS – and while you’re at it, why not follow our account so you don’t miss any competition updates?
