Often described as 'the real Africa', Zambia is without doubt an amazing and rewarding country to visit. With some excellent wildlife experiences, including world class birdlife and big game to rival anywhere in Africa, Zambia is so much less touristy than its more popular neighbours. It has an excellent selection of wildlife parks, with the South Luangwa National Park being the pick and is home to Victoria Falls, Africa's largest waterfall and well know as the adventure capital of Africa. It is also an angler's dream, as the mighty Zambezi River attracts fishermen from around the world in search of the hard fighting tigerfish and the elusive giant vundu.
Although not the easiest country to get around, our overland truck based trips are a perfect way to enjoy Zambia whilst still retaining an element of comfort and security you'll be hard pressed to find when travelling independently.

Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.
Encounters Travel did an excellent job in all aspects of our trip! Egypt was amazing and the trip was made especially enjoyable as a result of the quality of the guides. I highly recommend Encounters Travel!

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.
Our video features aim to bring our adventure tours to life in a way that no photo can, giving you a great taste of the destination.
