A Snapshot

Polly’s love for travel has taken her to more than 30 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Australasia, and Latin America. Her first experience of Africa was a family safari trip to Tanzania, and she’s dying to go back!

Polly’s Biography

Polly has been a keen traveller since childhood, enjoying trips to Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. After school she spent four months backpacking around India and South-east Asia with friends, which is when the travel bug really set in.

Polly graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2014 with a 2:1 degree in Psychology. Whilst at university, she used her long summer holidays as an opportunity to explore countries around Europe, with Bosnia and Croatia at the top of her list.

Since graduating, Polly has pursued her passion for travel and photography with separate trips to Central and South America. After a ski season in Switzerland and two summer seasons in Greece, it was finally the right time to settle in London and pursue a career in travel.

Before joining Yellow Zebra, Polly gained experience working at two of the UK’s top luxury travel companies. She is now excited about focusing on Africa as a destination, helping the YZ Sales team with their enquiries and itineraries.
