Dreaming of a getaway after months of lockdown?

We can help.

Our team of savvy destination specialists love nothing more than working with clients to create awesome holidays to Africa and now beyond.

We have been specialising in African holidays for over a decade and Sri Lanka and India for the last five years.

More recently, we’ve launched into the South Pacific so we can help our guests get a break sooner rather than later!

We kickstart the adventure by getting to know you and your holiday brief – what is it about Africa, India, Sri Lanka or the South Pacific you’re keen to experience and what’s the intention of the holiday – is it romance, wildlife focused, seeking personal reward or something else?

We prepare a proposal for you that outlines our services and the financial implications. If you’re happy with our style of service we get cracking to tailor your private itinerary that ticks all the boxes and exceeds expectations. Not only because our itineraries meet client briefs perfectly (like duration, budget and style), but also because it will be full of personalised touches and peppered with a few surprises! Plus you’re protected financially and when it comes to personal safety.

Remember luxury African safaris and holidays to other destinations are not always higher price tags… it all depends on how you define luxury. More about that below!

A message from Jono

“When you’re 100 kilometres from any other humans, sitting around a campfire under a canopy of a billion stars, listening to the same sounds of the bush that our ancestors would have heard, this is luxury. This is the type of experience that can’t be represented by an insta-post or Facebook story.  This is soul-shaking, life-changing stuff and exactly the type of experience that will make you want to return to Africa time and time again. And this is Encompass Africa. We invite you to experience a luxury African safari designed exclusively for you.”


If you’ve fallen under the spell of this extraordinary continent, or if you’re dreaming about your first safari to Africa, get ready – you are in for an incredible, life-changing experience. Either way, we’d love to help you get to our favourite place on the planet.

We call ourselves a luxury African safari company. But luxury isn’t about the price tag, gold taps, champagne and caviar. Our definition of luxury is time spent away from the crowds; exploring remote wilderness locations abundant with wildlife; or sitting on a palm-fringed island in the Indian Ocean. We create holidays that match your definition of a luxury Africa safari.

Conservation and creativity are at the heart of everything we do, so you’ll have the trip of a lifetime and simultaneously be supporting the conservation of Africa’s wilderness, wildlife and communities. It’s the greatest feeling, to experience the unique wonders of a country and know that you’re helping, just by being there.

Travel is our passion, responsible tourism is our commitment and we are dedicated to making a difference, one holiday at a time. 

Exceptional personalised service from passionate destination experts is the third pillar of our business. And while you might think you’d pay extra for this level of service, the truth will delight you.

Thanks to our longstanding partnerships with some of the world’s best properties, we’re able to negotiate special rates that mean you’ll pay the same price – or even less – than if you booked the exact holiday direct.

In a nutshell, it will save you money if you let us do all the work. Click here to read more.
