  • 'Just came home from an Encounter trip to Africa where my expectations were blown out of the water. So many animals in the wild - elephant, giraffe, hippo, lions, leopard, warthog, various deer, multitude of birds of varying kind. We had a very informative guide, Todd who has 20+ years experience. He picked up at Cape Town airport and left at Victoria Falls airport. He stayed with the group the full tour. Africa has been on my bucket list for a very long time, finally I can tick it off, but will certainly return to another part to see more.'

  • 'I have just spent an amazing 21 days in Africa with Encounter Travel. Would have to be the best holiday I have had in my life. To be able to experience life through the eyes of the locals and see to the animals roaming free without fear was truly wonderful. The entire trip was memorable and the way Encounter planned and shaped the trip ensured we had the best time possible. Thanks you Encounter!'

    Armand, NSW
  • 'My second trip with Encounter and I’m finally seeing the world one country at a time.
    Just pick a destination, pay, turn up at the airport. They do the rest. You won’t be sorry. Encounter enhances your chances to tick your wishes off your bucket list and have fun along the way.

  • 'This has been my third trip with Encounter and once again it has been a highlight, always well organised & informative and love the fact that you cater for the solo traveler. ' 

    George, 57 years, NSW
  • 'Another amazing tour with Encounter. Getting to visit the Cape of Good Hope after reading about it at the age of 10 was fantastic. The winery tours and amazing restaurants in Cape Town were a definite highlight. The safari's were amazing, getting the see a big variety of animals in the wild was magical and walking with the lions at Victoria falls is something I will never forget and of course Victoria falls was just mind blowing. A great time with a great group of people.
    Now the hard part....where to next with Encounter.'

    Leanne, 57 years, VIC
  • 'I can't recommend Encounter Travel highly enough. My Africa Safari and Cape Town holiday in 2018 was managed extremely well, included all the experiences I was looking for, included a tour guide who couldn't have been more professional and helpful and was with a terrific group of like-minded solo travellers that made the whole experience something to remember for life.'
