Prepare for the Ultimate Safari Holiday

Welcome to Encompass Africa. We are African travel specialists focused on creating memorable, rewarding safari holidays for you and your partner, family or friends.

We take the pain and stress away in the planning stage of travel to Africa and put excitement back in thanks to a clever combination of personal service, unbiased advise and digital technology. It is an approach that recognises how crucial communication is in order to design exceptional safari holidays based on the exact needs, requirements and wishes of our guests.

Because of our unique approach, we have been sending guests to Africa since our inception in 2009.

Our first priority is you and your African safari holiday.

Unlike general travel agencies that are often owned by a corporation, we are not focused on selling mass produced, packaged holidays from glossy brochures. Our goal is to custom design exciting African travel for you to experience and enjoy. Encompass Africa was founded and is run by Jonathon Wilson, a former safari guide.

More importantly, Jonathon is a qualified specialist with 20 years’ industry experience. Jonathon has been working directly with safari camp owners and partners across 17 countries, fuelling his passion for providing guests genuine Africa travel experiences. 

Safaris to suit you

Our beautifully designed holidays to Africa are created to satisfy and exceed your every expectation.

Once we have a chat together (we call it a safari briefing), the team brainstorms ideas and creates a personalised digital itinerary for inspiration that factors in your every wish. This will get sent to your inbox within 24 hours of the safari briefing. 

The next step is presenting you with a full African safari proposal for consideration once we have costings together and know availability – no point presenting you with an itinerary that is not available during your Africa travel dates.

It is your holiday and because we are tailor-made specialists, the itinerary is tweaked until it’s exactly right for you.

We’ve put together a video so you can see how we do things and what some of our guests say.

What our guests say

We are only as good as our last safari. Here are a few reviews.

From our very first dealings with you, we were so confident in your advice and so very taken by the exceptional options you suggested for us.  Our settled itinerary was without blemish.  Every camp you suggested was ideal for our needs and our budget.
