Jean Du Plessis - Director/ Founder

Jean's favourite African moment was sitting in a tree-nest overlooking a waterhole where 500 elephants were drinking at full moon!

Jean 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 Drankensberg 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 new TV series called Ultimate Africa that is screening on National Geographic as well Nomads of the Serengeti currently screening on Love Nature and he is also the director of Wayo Africa, a successful small company passionate about operating authentic safaris in Tanzania.
