Organising your first safari holiday can be a baffling and time-consuming process.

Plan Your First Safari

A safari is the trip of a lifetime. Africa is often the destination our clients have been dreaming of for years, for the location of their honeymoon or that special family trip. It is always a unique experience; a genuine adventure.

Nothing stirs up excitement in the same way as a safari. But planning your first safari can be a baffling and time-consuming process! When should you travel? Which destination should you choose? Which company should you trust to design your safari?


Choosing the right safari operator

By far the biggest challenge, however, is to gain confidence in the right company to arrange your safari. We would like to think that the industry awards we have won underline our experience and recognition within the industry itself, but we believe that getting to know our experts is the best way you can feel sure of having that dream safari.

Of course, many of our competitors say they have experience of visiting a destination, but all of our consultants have been either professional safari guides or camp managers – or they were born and raised in Africa. And not only have our travel experts worked in Africa, but they've worked for the top companies – the finest continent's accommodation providers!

In our opinionthere is simply no substitute for this level of extensive ‘on-the-ground’ experience when it comes to designing the best safaris. Follow this link to read more about why YZ stands out from the herd.
