The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-12-06T16:03:13Z Luxury Safari Giveaway 9 nights including airfare to South Africa 2017-12-06T16:03:13Z luxury-safari-giveaway-9-nights-including-airfare-to-south-africa 5 DECEMBER 2018 **** MEDIA RELEASE **** Prominent Australian-based luxury safari company, Encompass Africa (encompassafrica.com.au) is celebrating the reveal of their new website and visual assets by giving away a free Luxury Safari to South Africa for two that includes roundtrip airfare ex Perth and nine nights of grandeur experiencing the very best of South Africa.    “We’re fortunate to have great post tour dialogue with our guests who come back from safari just bursting at the seams with stories so we have over the years assimilated a vast library of safari video footage and photographs. After a while we thought it timely to get them edited into something that could help inspire any future guests about what to expect in Africa” said Danica Wilson. Coming from a creative background herself, Danica has sought to stretch the style parameters for a travel website and create something new, fresh and yet warmly familiar. The design in each country page breaks free from a homogeny seen so often in the industry and indulges in a narrative that inspires adventure.   “We love seeing our guests coming back from their safari journey, simply glowing with new experience, so together with our partners Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, South African Airways and the Sun Lux Collection, we are giving away a holiday of a lifetime from Australia to South Africa” said the colourful founder of Encompass Africa Jono Wilson. It’s about making a dream safari a reality for someone.  We don’t just give away holidays in lucky draws though, it’s about skill.  You need to find photographs of me on the website just like the ‘Where’s Wally’ concept and come up with the most clever caption for one of them as deemed by a panel of judges including me, travel Editor Ginny Cumming and Australian author Tony Park.”     Encompass Africa embodies strong eco touristic and sustainable practices with their tailored holidaymaking and their bespoke travel concierge system keeps them separated from the rest of the pack and other more traditional modes of travel making.   This luxury safari promotion will give the lucky winner and a friend the opportunity to not only realise what is for many a lifelong dream, but also document via social media the awe-inspiring majesty about being in Africa, but within an Encompass Africa styled experience.   Having staff based in Brisbane, Johannesburg and Cape Town, Encompass Africa is expanding at highly measured pace to include a Sydney office from January 2018.

Over the years as the tourism market has shifted to cater to the needs of a rising middle class in China, the landmark strip has seen a steady rise in Chinese tourists YOY, who traditionally prefer to avoid the backpacker styled accommodation and tourism providers, however  making an exception for one operator, Ride Tours. Todd Baker who owns Ride Tours has for many years prided himself in providing a truly unique experience, with one of the hallmarks of his trip being that they do the tour in the opposite direction to all the other major tour companies. Being a small independent provider as well has meant he can focus on providing an experience that is more client centric and this is evident in the way people communicate with each other on the tour, choose their own music, stop off for picnics along the way and see a side of the Great Ocean Road that is both memorable and authentic. Ride Tours is also one of the few independent providers largely favoured by both Chinese and Europeans alike, and with no marketing presence in China markets Todd believes the Chinese tourists are a result of a solid reputation earning him credit in that market. A sentiment which echo'd in Courier mail article which highlight Ride Tours achievements in maintaining a steady flow of backpacker clientele over the years. Weekend tours have just started again for November and if you're interested in knowing more about Ride Tour's plans to further enrich their backpacker centric experience for international travellers coming to Australia please head over to www.ridetours.com.au for more.
