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.
Hosted by Naturalist Experts
On whichever departure you choose, you’ll be accompanied throughout by an accomplished naturalist host who will provide a rich educational context to the wild ecosystems of Africa. The northbound journey is hosted by Tara Stoinski, PhD, who serves as president, CEO and Chief Scientific Officer for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The southbound journey is hosted by Nigel Marven, who has spent three decades filming, producing, and presenting wildlife films for Sir David Attenborough, Discovery Channel, and the BBC Natural History Unit to name a few.
A Unique Aerial Perspective
Apart from flying by private air to the very best wildlife reserves of east and southern Africa in the company of these fascinating experts, you will get a unique aerial perspective of these rich habitats, where a giant rivers creates smoke that thunders, sharp escarpments fall away to migrating herds of wildebeest and zebra, and verdant volcanoes and Rift Valley lakes stretch out for miles.
This expansive and unique itinerary joining eastern and southern Africa’s top wildlife destinations is one you will not find anywhere else, and we hope you will join us for an adventure you will never forget. To learn more, request a brochure today.
