Yvette DeVries, Safari Specialist

Direct Line: 818.649.1942 | E-mail:

I was raised in Stellenbosch, South Africa, studied at the University of Stellenbosch and worked at Stellenbosch Vineyards as guest liaison and tasting room manager until I moved Connecticut in the 1998. I worked at African Portfolio in Old Greenwich for 16 years designing and selling custom safaris for discerning travelers, before switching to representing some of my favorite products in Africa – the Saxon Hotel, Elewana Collection, Azura Retreats and Volcanoes Safaris – to the travel trade of North America. Along the way I started volunteering for the North East Chapter of APTA – the Association for Promotion of Africa. I moved on to the APTA National Board and served as national president for two terms.  Now I look forward to putting to use my past experience and continued relationships in Africa and North America, to serve the retail travel community on behalf of African Travel Inc.
