What’s included in Encompass Africa travel?

We know that every traveller is different, therefore we offer a variety of styles of travel whether it is tailormade or set group tours and they cater to your preferences and needs.

Tours offer a great way to explore Africa with everything taken care of.

Tailormade allows us to factor in as much or as little as you like and design the itinerary to be as flexible as you wish.

We list here just what may or may not be included in Encompass Africa travel.



As the word tailormade suggests, this sort of travel is created just for you based on your specifications, preferences and parameters. We can include as much or as little as you like. Usually guests like us to include the following in Encompass Africa travel that’s tailormade.

  • International and regional airfares if you choose us as your flight booking agent
  • Domestic transport
  • All accommodation
  • Meals as chosen by you
  • Wildlife park and conservation fees
  • Your choice of many unique day tours and activities
  • English speaking local professional guides



The inclusions in group tours vary from tour to tour and we often ‘top and tail’ the itinerary with tailormade arrangements to extend your time in Africa and take in a few more highlights. So again, this is indicative only of what Encompass Africa travel by group tours usually includes.

  • International and regional airfares if you choose us as your flight booking agent
  • All accommodation
  • Meals as specified per tour
  • All transportation and transfers
  • Wildlife park and conservation fees
  • Sightseeing and entrance fees as specified in the tour itinerary
  • English speaking local professional guides
  • Small group sizes


We have guests from all over the world so it is difficult for us to include things like visas, tipping (as it varies greatly per person what they would like to tip) and shopping.
