Jean du Plessis is the founder of both Wayo Africa and Green Footprint Adventures and has been a professional guide all his working life. He spent his childhood running around the African wilderness with Zulu kids in the foothills of the Drakensberg mountains. It was here that a lifestyle in Africa, its people and wildlife was imprinted on him.
Today Jean is working at the forefront of developing new and exciting safari experiences in Tanzania as well as guiding small select groups into the ‘wild and wonderful’. He pioneered both canoeing safaris and night game drives inside Tanzanian National Parks. Jean is the host of an exciting TV series called Ultimate Africa that has been seen on Animal Planet and he is also the director of Wayo Africa, a successful small company passionate about operating authentic safaris in Tanzania.
