How! One premium with all the added benefits that cover the whole family? And claims paid within 24 hours? That's how we at Zazu Life fly.

From as little R45pm, our Djembe, Marimba, and Ngoma immediate plans provide cover for the whole immediate family. That's you, your spouse and up to 6 kids! And, with our affordable extended plans, you can cover the rest of the family (like gogos, uncles, or your brothers and sisters).

We also have some of the lowest waiting periods in the industry at only 4 months for immediate dependant plans. We have NO waiting periods for accidental death.
But it doesn't stop there! We want to give you and your family the most out of their policy. So, all our plans have awesome additional funeral benefits that cover all lives insured. These include:

  • Accidental Death Benefit- 2X the amount of cover in the event of accidental death.
  • Continuation Benefit – your dependants remain covered at no cost for 6 months after you pass away
