We live and breathe Africa
Why choose us?
At Encompass Africa, we live and breathe Africa. For more than 10 years we’ve been creating safari holidays for people wanting extraordinary experiences, unrivalled service and the sort of insider knowledge that can elevate a great trip to an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.
We work with the best suppliers and hand-picked local partners in each of the 24 countries we represent, so you can be assured of the very best service from Africa’s finest, and seamless logistics the entire way.
We only recommend accommodation that we’ve personally experienced and know you’ll love. From exclusive lodges and owner-run safari camps, to boutique hotels, adventure camping and glamping, our books are full of breathtaking, unique properties in the most spectacular locations imaginable.
We’re a small, owner-run travel company, and we love working with similar and like-minded partners: small, owner-run properties who are the very best at what they do, and who share our dedication to conservation and providing guests with beautiful experiences. But it’s not just about the lodgings: a safari is nothing without a brilliant guide, so we’ve teamed up with properties that we know employ the most experienced guides with incredible local knowledge and great storytelling abilities.
Exceptional, personalised service is what sets us apart – more than 75% of our clients come from repeat business or word of mouth, so we know we’re doing it right. From the moment you start talking to Encompass Africa, we’ll have your back, every step of the way.
Our dedicated team of Africa travel experts will be there to plan your dream itinerary, give you great advice and share in the excitement of your upcoming trip. Plus you’ll have access to our online safari concierge, a unique resource designed to make your trip preparations effortless. Here, you’ll find everything from restaurant recommendations and travel apps for kids to advice about visas and vaccinations and tips for taking great wildlife photos.
Whether you’re travelling with your loved one, extended family, a group of friends, on your honeymoon or as a solo traveller, we’ve got you covered.
While you’re away, you’ll also have access to our “Guests in Africa” service, so you can get 24/7 help with any issue or question, great or small. We know that a trip to Africa can be a daunting prospect, especially if it’s your first time, but we’re here to show you how stress-free and truly wonderful it can be if you’re in the right hands. Creating a knockout itinerary for you is just one of our priorities – the other is to ensure you’re always safe and supported.
We’ll also be in touch once you’re back home – your feedback is a hugely valuable tool in our ongoing mission to keep refining our service and advice.
We’re passionate about this wild and exotic continent, and committed to supporting its lands, its people, its cultures and its wildlife. Everything we do is done to benefit our guests and the lives of those in Africa. Like our slogan says, “We make a difference, one safari at a time” and just by booking with Encompass Africa, you’ll be supporting the conservation of Africa’s wilderness, wildlife and communities.
We welcome you to talk to one of our Encompass Africa travel specialists today – we’d love to help create the ultimate itinerary just for you, whether you’re planning your first safari or your twenty-first. Your itinerary will be personalised, but some things will remain constant on every Encompass Africa holiday: the best camps, the most knowledgable guides, the most fascinating experiences, and memories that you will cherish forever.
