Special Occasions & Celebrations

When we reach certain milestones in our lives, or have special occasions to celebrate, we will often search for places that we have yearned to visit (or to return to) in which to mark such a momentous event. Africa is very often one of these locations. This might be an anniversary, 50th or 60th birthday, reunion of old friends and/or colleagues or just an excuse to be somewhere special to celebrate or recognise a particular time (or event). In all such occasions, the atmosphere is heightened when it can be private (and exclusive). Gatherings can range from as few as 6 or 8 people to perhaps two dozen or more. The locations and choices should reflect both uniqueness and style along with the ability to cater for such private occasions.

There is nothing we at African Encounter love more than to arrange a good party! Any cause for celebration and we are up to the challenge. To this end, our research is meticulous, and you can expect the delivery to exceed all expectations.

We have access to the most beautiful locations and accommodations imaginable, and together with your requirements / specific requests, we will endeavour to make your special occasion truly memorable. Whether it be a private villa on the archipelago’s of Mozambique, Lamu or Zanzibar, a hot air balloon ride over the open grass plains of the Masai Mara or Serengeti, a private banquet on the crater floor at Ngorongoro, a secluded lodge in a Big5 game reserve, or a private gorilla trek, Zambezi canoeing, or remote walking experience...just contact us to discuss your requirements.

Birthdays (with family & friends)
