An African safari tops many of our readers’ bucket lists, and there’s no better way to plan the ultimate safari than a private jet journey.
Luxe tour operator Abercrombie & Kent has just unveiled the itinerary for their 2017 “Africa Revealed” trip, and it’s one you won’t want to miss.
The exclusively-chartered private
jet equipped with 50 fully lie-flat, first-class seats flies to remote areas commercial flights can’t, allowing time-strapped guests to see an incredible number of top world sights, in a turn-key luxury journey, in a short period of time. From the endangered mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and awe-inspiring Victoria Falls to the wildlife-rich plains of the Serengeti, this ultimate safari journey reveals Africa’s wildlife, culture and history at their most authentic.
You’ll experience seven countries in a short 21 day journey on this ultimate safari excursion. The trip kicks off and ends in historic Madrid, Spain, passing through areas like Lalibela, Ethiopia, where you’ll see the area’s rock-carved churches dating back to the 13th century and meet Lucy, one of the world’s oldest early human fossils.From thre, you’ll watch the Great Migration in action across the Serengeti from a hot air balloon and learn about two of Africa’s top predators from a conservation expert.
You’ll explore Cape Town as few get to do, by helicopter, boat, cable car and on a winelands tour. Enjoy game drives through wildlife-rich parks with the highest concentrations of elephants in Africa. We also love their once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour over Victoria Falls and the Uganda gorilla tour, where you can also meet the local Batwa people.
The price is a steep $92,500, but considering the journey, you’ll get what you pay for as well.
