We are luxury Africa safari specialists

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 experience that can’t be shared on an image on social media. This is what will make you want to return year after year. This is Encompass Africa.

If you’ve fallen under the spell of this extraordinary continent, or if you’re dreaming about your first trip, 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.

What we do
At Encompass Africa we create unforgettable, tailor-made journeys and ensure all of our guests experience a luxury Africa safari. We work in 24 (and counting) African destinations, including the islands of the Indian Ocean.

Defining luxury
Luxury doesn’t have to mean silver service, gold taps, Champagne and caviar. It could mean the luxury of time spent away from crowds; exploring remote wilderness locations abundant with wildlife; or sitting on a palm-fringed island in the Indian Ocean. We create holidays that suit your definition of a luxury Africa safari.

Our team
Every member of the EA team has extensive knowledge of this compelling continent, having lived, guided or travelled here – or all three – so you’ll get trusted advice based on firsthand experience, every step of the way. 

The EA way
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.

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

Exceptional personalised service from passionate Africa 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 Africa’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 same holiday direct.

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