The African Yellow White-Eye is predominantly pale yellow on the upperparts with bright yellow underparts. It has a ring of white feathers around its eyes, called an eye-ring. It has a thin, black, slightly down-curved beak. It has short, rounded wings.
It can grow to 10 centimetres (4 inches).
The African Yellow White-Eye likes forests, woodlands, and gardens.
It feeds on nectar from plants, as well as insects.
It is seen in pairs, which mate for life. The pair build a hanging, cup-shaped nest of grass, held together with spider webs. Females lay 2-4 eggs.
