Luxury Africa safari specialists

This is Encompass Africa, a boutique specialist in travel to Africa.

We plan custom African holidays for savvy travellers seeking a truly tailor-made experience and safari concierge service.

So much more than a travel agency or tour operator, we’re everything rolled into one.

Here at Encompass Africa we help you to create the big picture – that awesome African holiday you’ve always dreamt of.

We then move to constructing the holiday, working together to determine the holiday rhythm that’s right for you and the foundations like accommodation and activities.

Of course every step of the way we fine-tune to ensure it meets your criteria (things like time, budget and experiences) and exceeds your expectations.

The little devil’s in the detail and our logistics team are tasked with making sure every itinerary is seamless and stress-free.

Every step of the way you have our support and advice not to mention our safari concierge service, that’s our guarantee.

Our small team packs a powerful punch when it comes to knowledge, expertise and passion for Africa and the Indian Ocean islands. We all lost our hearts on the mighty continent and want to help you lose yours.

All the while, working with Encompass Africa means you’re making a difference to the lives of those in Africa. Read more on our responsible tourism page.

If you’re excited to plan your holiday to Africa, let’s get the ball rolling!

Encompass Africa currently works in 24 countries scattered across the continent and that number continues to grow.

A word from our founder

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.

We call ourselves a luxury travel specialist. But 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.

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.
