Your African Safari mission statement

Your African Safari (YAS) was created by people who are passionate about the animals of Africa. We created YAS to help support, grow and nourish a healthy African wildlife population. The genesis of YAS was first and foremost for the preservation of Africa’s wild animals—that these voiceless creatures stand a chance of a long and healthy life, in their natural environments, free from the confines of zoos or other cages.

We support the African wildlife and environment by:

  • Providing a neutral platform for you to praise good tour operators and warn others of bad tour operators.
  • Providing a neutral platform where anyone who’s been on a safari, tourists and tour guides alike, can give their unique, candid view on the park, from the lodging to the level of crowds.
  • Allowing only safari tours that are not detrimental to the well-being of the wildlife. Tours such as the follow are not allowed on YAS and those found are promptly removed and tour operators warned:
    • Elephant back rides
    • Walking with lions
    • Handling any sort of cub or baby animal
  • Working with NGOs and non-profits to highlight and support their conservation efforts.

The future of Your African Safari

Our future plans are to be in a position to give back a portion of our earnings to help support the generous, tireless efforts of those who are working to protect and preserve the African wildlife, especially the rhinos.

Our core focus

The core focus of YAS is to provide a place for people to leave their candid reviews for African safari tour operators. Most review sites were created for lodging or restaurant reviews, and aren't properly designed for constructive safari tour operator reviews.

YAS has broken the review mold and created a platform specifically for tour operators. It is the result of extensive collaborations between tour operators and website experts to create a site aimed expressly at and for African safari tour operators. These tour operators paired up with some of the most sophisticated and successful web developers around to create the ultimate in African safari review sites.

This site is a collaboration of the valuable insight, partnering and testing provide by myriad tour operators and their safari guests. They knew what they needed in the ultimate African safari review website and worked with the best web developers to make it happen. As a result, YAS is unparalleled in serving as the perfect stage for safari tour operators to showcase their core strengths and most popular safari itineraries. Tour operators can also upload photos and include a YAS widget on their website to help promote their presence with us. Safari companies can even have people request a quote on a specific itinerary via YAS, and drastically reduce the sales cycle.

At YAS, we listen to your feedback and are quick to implement popular ideas from tour operators.
