Born out of a shared passion and love for the bush, Zali is a brand built by husband and wife team, Zaheer Ali and Asma Bava.
Five years later, two children richer and both brimming with field experience and a clutch of qualifications, they began Zali Adventures & Experiences, intent on sharing the gift of Africa’s wild and beautiful places with the world.


Enthralling landscapes and captivating wildlife come to life with Zali Adventures & Experiences. Enjoy itineraries hand-crafted by experts that introduce you to Africa’s bounty of riches.


Whilst other safari companies might promise to get you closer to the animals, in our experience, if you take a step back you see a lot more. As native South Africans we have a pride and passion in the environments of our motherland and a deep respect for the endemic wildlife; whilst, as a family, we want to ensure these precious natural habitats are preserved for our children and our children’s children.
As such, we won’t promise to get you right next to a leopard and her newborn cub, or encourage you to clap or shout at dozing lion prides to get a better photo. What we will do is share insightful stories and expert information about the habits and habitats of the animals we encounter, resulting in a far richer and more rewarding experience than a few close up photos will ever achieve. 


There is no one-size-fits all solution to our safaris, they’re truly bespoke. So, if you have something in mind feel free to email us and we’ll be only too happy to discuss you specific requirements. Not sure where to start? How about a Technology Detox Safari, to replace the chatter of social media with the hum of cicadas? Or why not share the magic of the bush with your family on a Child Friendly Safari
Ornithologists can snap birdlife from concealed hides, whilst photographers, from total amateurs to experienced professionals, will get more from their time with professional trained photography guides, ensuring those iconic moments and memories are captured on camera.
