About Encompass AfricaWhen you’re 100 kilometres from any other humans, sitting around a campfire under a canopy of a billion stars, listening to the same sounds of the bush that our ancestors would have heard, this is luxury. This is the experience that can’t be shared on an image on social media. This is what will make you want to return year after year. This is Encompass Africa. We create unforgettable, tailor-made journeys and ensure all of our guests experience a luxury Africa safari.
About our safari vehiclesWe don't do buses and we don't do budget travel. We are all about immersive experiences so you can expect custom built vehicles with great creature comforts from cooler boxes, charging stations to camera mounts and more.
After doing a bit of research for our very first safari I soon realised that the choice on offer would leave us all feeling rather overwhelmed. My task was to find a horseback safari that would look after beginner riders and the much more experienced. After trying and failing to find one that I felt comfortable with I stumbled across Encompass Africa. From my first conversation with Jonathon on a conference call with the other party members I felt at ease.He listened to our requirements and gave us several options.
The organisation of the trip was first class, everything (including all our daft questions) were answered immediately and and comprehensively. The holiday itself was more than we could dreamed of, stunning accommodation, wonderful people and truly great horses. I would not hesitate in using encompass Africa for our next adventure. Five star service !
You really cannot ask for a better team to organise your African Safari than Jono, Danica, Gail and Laura at Encompass Africa. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and genuinely care about making your African trip perfect! They love what they do and it really shows. We have now been to Africa 4 times, each trip organised by EA and every single detail has been perfect. From the advice and help in the planning and before leaving, to the flights, transfers and other transport, to the accommodations and activities, everything is perfectly planned and executed. Importantly, they really listen to what you want and do their best to make your trip exactly what you want but are also very honest in giving advice to make sure that you do have a fabulous time. Add to this a group of people who are genuinely some of the nicest people you'll ever meet and who go out of their way to make your whole experience from planning, to going on the trip, to returning home, perfect, what more could you ask for?!
We have also recommended EA to many people who have also been to Africa with their expert help and everyone agrees on how wonderful they are!
Quite simply EA are the best I will be organising more trips with them in the future and will continue to recommend them to everyone!
