Calling All Bloggers... Win a Safari to Kenya With Yellow Zebra

Yellow Zebra Safaris has teamed up with Asilia Africa to offer the opportunity of a lifetime… you could win a conservation-focused luxury safari for two to Kenya!

 In celebration of Yellow Zebra’s newly launched conservation vacations, a subject we're extremely passionate about, and Asilia’s 15th birthday, we’ve designed an action-packed conservation-focused luxury safari, which we’re giving away to one lucky winner and a guest. The prize includes internal flights, accommodation on a full board basis, activities, transfers, and park fees… altogether, it’s a trip worth over $17,000 to Kenya’s most exciting destinations.

If you’re a blogger and you love to travel, you can enter our competition simply by writing a blog-style piece responding to the following question: ‘Sustainability in 2019 and beyond – what changes have you made to your personal lifestyle in an attempt to live more eco-consciously, what struggles have you experienced, and do you have more plans for the future?’ These can be actions that you’ve already taken, steps you’re hoping to take in the future, or just your top tips on how readers can reduce their environmental impact, either at home or in life overall.

If you win, we’ll fly you and a guest to the original birthplace of safari. Please be aware that T’s & C’s apply.

Thanks so much to everyone that entered. We had so many fantastic entries and it was very hard for the judges to pick. 

However, we are pleased to announce that the winner this year was Roaming Nanny! Check out Retha's entry here.


How to enter

We’re asking you to write a blog post, responding to this question: ‘Sustainability in 2019 and beyond – what changes have you made to your personal lifestyle in an attempt to live more eco-consciously, what struggles have you experienced, and do you have more plans for the future?’ You can go into as much or as little detail as you like, as long as your post exceeds 300 words and includes a link to the Kenya section on the Yellow Zebra website. Please see the T’s & C’s here.

The prize

The winner will then be able to take the trip between 1st December 2019 and 31st March 2020 (excluding Christmas and New Year).  The winner and guest will fly into Kenya and spend three nights at Ol Pejeta Bush Camp, followed by three nights at Naboisho Camp. Here are a few details about each property:

Ol Pejeta Bush Camp is a beacon in sustainable conservation and boasts one of the highest populations of black rhino in East Africa. Here the winner and guest will be able to spot the Big Five, as well as rarer species such as Grevy’s zebra, Beisa oryx, and locally threatened Jackson’s hartebeest. Alongside traditional bush walks, and expertly guided game and night drives, a visit to the Endangered Species Enclosure will be included, during which the winner and guest will encounter the last remaining two northern white rhinos in the wild in the world. They’ll meet the rangers who protect the rhinos and they’ll hear the story of how Ol Pejeta is trying to continue the species.

Naboisho Camp is located adjacent to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, in the Mara Naboisho Conservancy. It’s a ground-breaking initiative, pairing spectacular game viewing with strong conservation and community projects. After taking a dip in the swimming pool, soaking up the views at sunset, and exploring the area on game drives, the winning blogger and guest will also enjoy learning about Naboisho’s varied and successful partner programmes. These range from bee keeping and youth empowerment at the Maa Trust, to the endangered cat programme at the Kenya Wildlife Trust Headquarters.

We launched a similar competition last year, with the prize being a safari to Tanzania, and winners Justin Plus Lauren are about to depart for their adventure. Here are their thoughts on the trip ahead:

“We are so excited to embark on an incredible adventure to Tanzania with Yellow Zebra Safaris! An African safari is right at the top of our travel bucket list and we can’t wait to make this dream experience come true.”
