First time to Africa
You have so much to look forward to
Welcome, first timers!
If you’re thinking about a holiday in Africa, prepare for something special. Your first trip to this extraordinary continent is an experience that will stay with you forever.
There is simply nowhere else like Africa on Earth. It mixes history and culture with breathtaking landscapes and the greatest collection of big mammals on the planet.
And it’s enormous – according to the United Nations, Africa is home to 54 recognised countries, each one boasting its own distinct identity, cultures and attractions. We specialise in 24 of these incredible countries, in Southern and East Africa. But we don’t just concentrate on the famous “highlights” that every company covers.
At Encompass Africa we make sure your holiday incorporates hidden gems, in-depth sightseeing and cultural experiences that will make you want to return again and again. Our expert knowledge and regular visits to all of these destinations mean that we can give you inside information about every place, property and priceless experience.
Even the planning stages are exciting, as we help you to understand Africa’s diversity and hone in on what’s most important to you. Combining your dreams and our savvy, we’ll create an itinerary for your African holiday that’s rewarding, meaningful… and utterly amazing.
