Book with confidence

Book with confidence

We take your confidence in booking extremely seriously and have made specific changes during COVID to give you the extra confidence you may be looking for.

As always our 'YZ difference' sees your safaris designed by genuine experts and our background support sets the industry standards when you're away. We are proud to see that it is this approach to our business that sees us as the leading tour operator on Trustpilot for client reviews, and has seen YZ as Europe’s Leading Safari Company for the last six years in a row.  

Below are our top four reasons to book with confidence during COVID.

financial security

Financial security - YZ credit or postponement 

At the point of your final payment - just over two months before travel - we will discuss your booking with you. If COVID 19 is preventing you from travelling (as per the US State Department restrictions) we will offer you the chance to postpone your trip, or have a YZ credit note of your deposit figure*.

Flexible booking blue

Flexibility in booking

Our goal has always been to be as flexible as we can be. This has never been more important than it is now! If needs be we’ll help wherever we can to negotiate terms with camps that enable you to be confident to book your safari. 

Chief medical officer blue

Our Chief Medical Officer

Our Chief Medical Officer (our ‘CMO’) is the most highly trained parks doctor in the industry. Should you need expert medical advice and support whilst you are away - from an upset stomach to the most serious of incidents - our CMO is on call 24/7 for our clients. We do not know of another safari tour operator with this level of expert advice.

Health and safety blue

Health and Safety

It goes without saying that every lodge we sell is visited by our experts. However we also employ an internationally recognised independent company to do health and safety checks on every property in our portfolio. Combining this with our CMO is a level of client support not seen elsewhere in the industry. 

* Please note that a YZ credit would be valid for travel until the end of 2022. For a postponement, if parts of your trip change their prices (yearly increases, seasonally etc), then the increase would be charged.  


Before we continue...

We'd also like to remind you of the reasons that we are viewed by the safari industry as one of the leaders in our field. It is at times like this that our clients need to know we are thinking about their well being at every set of the way, from the first moment you enquire with us, to the moment you return back after your safari.
