If you've been looking for a safari that takes you to all of Africa's iconic wilderness destinations in a single journey, including big five sightings, iconic wildlife reserves, and endangered mountain gorilla trekking, this 15-day safari for early fall 2019 is for you.

Africa's Top Wildlife Destinations Connected by Private Air

This singular expedition explores the world’s greatest concentration of wildlife along Africa’s massive Great Rift Valley, encompassing stops in the Okavango Delta, the Masai Mara, Victoria Falls, Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park and the Zambezi ecosystem.

The only way to comfortably incorporate these disparate and remote ecosystems in a single journey of this duration is by chartering a private aircraft and flying directly to each destination. This saves an enormous amount of travel and allows more time on the ground to explore and learn about these extraordinary places.

Choose from One of Two Departure Dates in 2019

We are offering this one-of-a-kind expedition on two dates. The first departs August 28, 2019 and follows a northbound path, starting in Johannesburg and ending in Nairobi. The second departure begins in Nairobi on September 2, 2019, and follows a southbound routing, ending in Johannesburg. The destinations visited are exactly the same, and both departures are timed to correspond with the astonishing wildebeest migration of the Masai Mara.
