Emma's biography

Safari was very much part of Emma’s upbringing. She grew up in Zimbabwe and school vacations were spent exploring parts of Southern Africa – and they also had to fit in with the tobacco season! During April vacations, Emma and her family would drive various different routes to Durban, with the occasional trip to Cape Town, whilst during August they would enjoy travelling around Zimbabwe, as this month heralded the start of the planting season. One year, the family undertook a two-week self-drive in Botswana – this was a one-off vacation, but it goes down as one of the most memorable safari vacations, as it was so different from any of the vacations her family had ever done! And a brief trip to Mozambique left Emma wanting to go back to discover more of Mozambique’s coastline and islands.

After finishing school, Emma moved to the UK and studied Leisure and Sport Management with Tourism at the University of Gloucestershire. Once Emma had completed university, she moved to London to join the rat race! She joined a travel company where she was able to broaden her Africa knowledge and travel experiences. Since being in the travel industry Emma has explored more of East Africa, having visited both Kenya and Tanzania on numerous occasions, including running the Lewa Half Marathon – a slightly different way to experience the Lewa Conservancy! After exploring East Africa, it was back to Southern Africa, then self-driving around Namibia and exploring Madagascar – Emma is keen to explore more of this island nation.

Most memorable experience

“My most memorable safari experience was spending two weeks ‘beetling about Botswana’. Leaving Francistown for two weeks with all our supplies and a convoy of three cars was pretty exciting for a 12 year old! The highlight had to be waking up in the Savuti one morning to see the zebra migration had moved in overnight and the plains had transformed into a sea of zebra and a dining plate for the lions – a stark contrast to the day before, when we had spent the whole day out on safari only to see a tortoise and one not-so-happy elephant!”

Client reviews

"Emma was so helpful in planning our dream trip to Uganda. Her recommendations for Gorilla treks and where to stay were perfect and very appreciated. I was hesitant to travel during the pandemic but with her guidance we had a fantastic trip with absolutely no issues. Yellow Zebras informed us on every detail of what we needed for our preparations and the items we needed while we were there. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and were surprised when we arrived in Entebbe the first night to have a lovely Happy Anniversary message written in rose petals on our bed!! I highly recommend Yellow Zebras and plan on travelling again with them soon!"
“Emma planned the most AMAZING honeymoon for my husband and I! We did a little bit of everything and still had time to relax. We were so excited all the while leading up to our trip and imagining what we might see and do, and everything that happened surpassed our wildest imagination! ”
“Our Safari was in Botswana in mid May 2019. Muchenje Lodge in Chobe for two nights then on to the Gomoti Plains Camp for three nights. Our primary contact was Emma Dunn. Timely and accurate communications from Emma and her team. Asked great questions in order to design the perfect Safari for our family which included my wife and I, daughter and her two kids ages 11 and 8. Thanks to all at YZ."
