Encompass Africa travel specialists

Our founder

Jonathon Wilson

Jonathon has become synonymous in Africa as a charismatic, respectful and delightful human being who genuinely cares about his guests and their experience, nurtures relationships with partners and goes beyond the norm to help contribute to the future of Africa. Born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa, African safari lover since childhood, a past overland guide, staff trainer, first aider, business strategist, safari specialist and now the founder of Encompass Africa, Jonathon has driven, flown, peddled, paddled and hiked all over the continent.

For Jonathon, an African safari is all about adventure that excites, challenges and reward you, pushing personal boundaries you thought were immovable.  It isn’t climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or canoeing the Okavango Delta or diving with Great White Sharks. It could simply be travelling on an African safari that takes you outside your usual comfort zone of international holiday destinations.

What Jonathon values most as the founder and a boutique business owner is integrity, honesty, knowledge, expertise, passion, creativity, a conservation heart and having fun.
