Together with A&K, travelers can explore seven countries in 21 days where they will discover Africa’s wildlife, culture and history in the most comfortable and luxurious way. The journey ‘Africa Revealed: A Journey by Private Jet’ will run from February 17 to March 9, 2017.
Guests booking the journey will travel across the continent on an exclusively-chartered Boeing 757-200ER that comes equipped with 50 fully lie-flat, first-class seats. The seats come equipped with a personal massage system, four-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support, full privacy screens and extra-high seat back ensure undisturbed rest.
The journey begins in the sands of Ethiopia and goes south through the game-rich reserves of Tanzania and Botswana. Guests will have the opportunity to track mountain gorillas in Uganda while staying in a luxurious wilderness camp and end their journey in Morocco with a desert camping experience in the remote Erg Chebbi dunes of the Sahara and a visit to Marrakech.
The itinerary also includes a trip to the 13th century rock-carved churches, Lalibela and the amazing opportunity to watch the Great Migration across the Serengeti from a hot air balloon. In South Africa, guests can take a tour of the spectacular Cape Point and tour the Cape Winelands, with tastings and lunch at a wine estate. No trip to Africa is complete without a game drives through the country’s wildlife-rich parks that boast of the highest concentrations of elephants. There is also the opportunity to View Victoria Falls from above on an unforgettable “Flight of the Angels” helicopter tour.
Guests will also have by invitation-only, access to events such as a private tour led by the owner of one of the oldest wine estates in South Africa, a choral performance by dozens of Ethiopian Orthodox priests and a “One Thousand and One Arabian Nights” dining experience under the stars in Morocco, all arranged exclusively for A&K’s Private Jet guests.
On board guests enjoy a fully-stocked, open bar featuring top-shelf wine and spirits, in addition to an on-board chef who provides personalized, first-class meal service. Completing this best-in-class in-flight experience is a flight crew who travel with the group throughout, learning personal preferences and helping to make the private aircraft a familiar and inviting home away from home.
Guests will have a Tour Director, chosen from A&K’s international coterie of professionals, and a team of Tour Managers who will join them on journey and assist them with all their requirements to ensure a seamless service. Guests will also have access to A&K services like mid-journey laundry service, Traveler’s Valet and Travelling Bell Boy.
