Melbourne, Australia, October 25, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Not everyone has the money or time to spend on the more luxurious tours to Africa. On the other hand, not everyone wants typical mass-market tours that treat their clients like how fast-food companies treat theirs.
Encompass Africa – a family-owned and family-operated African safari
company – is attempting to break this mould by offering flexible and 100% personalised tours that will allow thrill seekers to genuinely experience Africa on their terms.
“We let our creative thinking, years of first-hand experience and extensive knowledge do the work to design a winning itinerary exactly right for you. It’s about knowing the key ingredients to create an authentic African travel experience, a journey that ticks your boxes and exceeds your expectations,” says company creator and managing director Jonathon Wilson.
Wilson’s words are echoed in the core values the company espouses – knowledge, personal service, best people, creativity & innovation, integrity and being “Ambassadors for Africa.” These core values define the overall objectives of the company, which revolve around providing satisfaction for customers, contributing to a sustainable future for African communities and promoting Africa in a more positive manner.
One particular and exciting factor that reflects these core values is how Encompass Africa defines luxury.
“Luxury is affording you the time to really enjoy and immerse yourself in Africa, it does not have to be about champagne and gold taps. What we seek for all of our clients is something more intangible: a genuine experience as exciting, beautiful and mysterious as the African continent itself,” says Wilson.
Wilson goes on to say that Encompass Africa prides itself on offering personal service with face to face contact with clients where possible and regular, ongoing phone and email contact throughout the planning process. “The excitement of an African safari holiday really begins in the planning stage. We form close relationships with our clients, getting to know them and their interests. This means our highly skilled specialists can easily identify fantastic safari experiences and create the perfect African safari holiday itinerary every time. Word of mouth and repeat clientele is so strong we no longer advertise. Our clients become our friends and fellow ambassadors for Africa.”
Encompass Africa does not limit itself to catering to a select set of clientele either. The company specialises in all travel to Africa. Their most popular are tailor-made family safaris, self-drive safaris, honeymoon safaris, Botswana camping safaris, groups of friends travelling together, multi-country safaris, private air safaris in Southern and Eastern Africa and of course high-end luxury African safari holidays. The company has also established, tried and tested a handful of quality small group guided journeys that allow budget-conscious travellers an authentic African safari experience.
The company is committed to excellent price-benefit ratio. This means the price its clients pay for a safari holiday guarantees an exceptional stay – one that is effortless and unforgettable. The price guarantee gives clients first-rate personal service, outstanding value for money (pay no more than if you book direct) and financial protection.
Encompass Africa’s team of specialists around the country provide clients the very best advice and information and access to outstanding specials. “We don't compromise on quality and will only recommend camps, lodges and safaris we believe in and have experienced first hand. This ensures we create your ideal African safari holiday.”
Wilson continues by saying the company guarantees value for money and competitive prices because they work direct with the very best camps, lodges and safari providers in Africa to ensure great rates. The winning factor with Encompass Africa is that they are independently owned and run with no contracts to set lodges or hotel chains. “This means we can give totally unbiased advise and recommend camps that genuinely provide the authentic African safari experience – the type we travel for ourselves.”
Encompass Africa is perhaps the safest company to travel with because they can guarantee that you and your money are safe because they are a fully registered and licensed African Travel Specialist in Australia and abroad, a member of the Australia's Travel Compensation Fund (www.tcf.org.au) and Australia’s first member of ATTA – The African Travel and Tourism Association. “It’s about practicing what we preach, promoting Africa in a positive way, dispelling some of the myths created through mainstream media and ultimately, assisting in the growth and development of a sustainable and bright future for this diverse continent.”
