Africa is my birthplace and somewhere I will always return time and time again. The idea behind Encompass Africa has always been to bring to life childhood dreams of incredible journeys amongst Africa’s famous wilderness and wildlife. It’s about giving guests the opportunity to encounter inspiring, immersive experiences with Africa’s animals, tribes and people on a continent that for me, is the most exciting, rewarding and life changing destination on earth.
Growing up in Africa, living, working, guiding and continuously travelling means each journey the team and I create is based on our ongoing learning, passion for authenticity and preference for immersive style travel where you get to really see, feel, touch and smell the world around you as much or as little as you like. That’s the beauty of tailormade travel, it’s designed to fit you precisely.
Our guests value our professional expertise, personal insight gained through first hand experience and of course our commitment to service and care. A tradition of fine Africa safari holiday tailoring, we are known for handcrafting bespoke itineraries that flatter your interests and exceed your expectations.
To spend time as a couple, group of friends or a family on a safari created just for you is the luxury of the experience. Some of my fondest memories are with my family and friends in Africa. Being able to share these incredible experiences with you on your own journey and have the trust in us to deliver your holiday of a lifetime is what Encompass Africa is all about.

Over a decade ago, I met and fell in love with Africa and a South African. A self-confessed adventurer, I quickly agreed to travel the world and much of Africa. Since then life has been full of great adventure and endless rewards. Since 2003 I have been involved in the Africa safari holiday industry, learning about how it works, who is who in the natural world zoo, where to go on safari holidays and other things that are essential to know.
I love what I do every day and want you to share the same passion and excitement when you return from your African safari holiday. Everything we recommend to you is based on our own experiences across 15 different countries in Africa. I’m one of a highly skilled team that’s committed to creating inspiring journeys to Africa made up of sustainable travel experiences that create lifelong memories.
I ask lots of questions, I talk a lot and share much of my passion, enthusiasm and knowledge with my guests. I’m a perfectionist too, so I won’t stop until I get your Africa safari holiday right.
Mother of two under the age of 5, life is busy inside the office and out. I like it that way and wouldn’t change it for quids! So as you can imagine, family safaris have become my favourite because I have been with the kids 5 times in 4 years. I know what you need as a family, as a mother and what is great for kids as every child is different – their interests, their temperament and their tolerance levels!

Another South African so you’ll hear my accent when you call! My job is to ensure Encompass Africa stays organised in the office and I also manage the accounts and finance! Phew… big responsibility but I love it along with a good Africa safari holiday. So it will be me who generates your invoices and can assist with payments.
Our Office Administrator is bound to chat with you on the phone at some stage or another. Her quick wit, down to earth nature and passion for learning all about Africa plus keeping us organised in the office are just some of the reasons we love having Katie on the team! Katie hates having her photo taken, so you won’t see her here… For that, you’ll need to visit us in the office!
