African Encounters specialises in quality small-group African safaris for New Zealanders and Australians. Maximum group size is 8 to ensure personal service and attention to detail. We stay in luxury small camps and lodges in private conservancies. All of our hand-picked camps are eco-friendly and our partners actively support their local communities and conservation projects. I worked in Kenya for several years and have 35 years of experience in African travel.
