Scandinavia and Norwegian Fjords Cruise 2016

August - 2016

'Scandanavia was every thing I dreamed it would be. Pretty coloured homes, green fields, snow capped mountain, water so fresh you could drink it from the waterfalls. The people in each country could not have been more friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this tour.'

African Safari with Cape Town

August - 2016

'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.'

African Safari with Cape Town

August - 2016

'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!'

New Zealand Snow Adventure August 2016

August - 2016

'This holiday was wonderful. I met a group of great people and enjoyed new experiences with them. Even though we were strangers at the start, we became good friends very quickly and this type of holiday means that I can travel and see the world even if I don't have a travel partner. I highly recommend this type of holiday for those wanting to experience the world.'

Encounter Sri Lanka

July - 2016

'I found Sri Lanka to be a surprisingly diverse and beautiful country. The accommodation was excellent and the food was superb. The highlight on this trip however was the people, who are so friendly and gentle. If you've never holidayed in an Asian country, then Sri Lanka is the perfect place to start.'
