Recent travel experience

Catia recently returned from a week-long trip in Botswana, staying at some of the most luxurious lodges in Africa. "The whole experience was out of this world and it was incredible and an honor to share this pristine and untouched environment with the local wildlife. There were so many highlights and emotional moments every day, but for me seeing the elephants herds crossing the river at Duma Tau, seeing wild dogs interacting and being able to see the majestic leopard close up were definitely among the top ones. All of this topped up by the welcoming staff and charismatic guides as well as the fantastic lodges with their top-notch service and amazing food, makes Botswana a fabulous destination to visit."

Most memorable experience

"It’s hard to pin down just one, but watching the sunrise at 3700m altitude while camping on the Inca trail in Peru and being surrounded only by snow-capped peaks, must be up there among the best!"

Catia’s biography

Catia grew up between the north-east of Italy and Tuscany, and she moved to London after finishing her studies. After a few years working across several industries, Catia caught the travel bug after a long backpacking stint in Australasia and Asia.

She started her career with some very well-known tour operators, specializing in adventure travel, which then took her on a family move to Canada for a few years to work within the North American market. She loves being in nature, hiking and has a passion for sustainability.

Client reviews

Yellow Zebra provides truly amazing service. From the initial email to the final booking, everything was handled with the utmost care and professionalism. Both Olivia and Catia were exceptionally prompt and thorough in their responses. The ZOOM calls with Olivia were particularly helpful in helping us understand how to get the most value for our trip. We are truly looking forward to this "once in a lifetime" experience!"
Words cannot describe how happy we are with Yellow Zebra! Thank you from the bottom of hearts to James S and Catia and the whole behind the scenes crew for crafting the adventure and wedding anniversary celebration of a lifetime! My husband and I have just returned from two weeks in Tanzania, and our hearts are full! Yellow Zebra kept surprising is with anniversary treats along the way, from champagne and sincere notes to an incredible massage in Zanzibar, and we are endlessly grateful for all they did for us... Catia was an organizational mastermind and kept in touch to ensure we felt prepared and stress free for our many flights. I first used Yellow Zebra solo on 2019 this is my second time using it. I cannot wait to book a third trip with Yellow Zebra! You have helped us make hundreds of new memories we will cherish for the rest of our days. Asante sana! -Sarah and Hugo from Canada
