Depart Kariba by Private Jet to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.  Upon arrival, take a short flight by chartered light aircraft to the world famous Serengeti National Park.  The open plains spread out as far as the eye can see, so it’s no surprise that the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai language meaning “endless plains”.

Experience the ultimate in luxury camping, not only with the magnificent wildlife, but also the unique opportunity for photography.  Not only by day, but with limited light interference you can explore the vast night sky and its stunning constellations.

Serengeti is also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th worldwide wonder; the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.  The spectacular of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park.  Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers.

During your early morning hot air balloon safari, you’ll find yourself gently floating over the plains and above the forest and river, checking out hippos, crocodiles and elephants from high above before landing for a sumptuous champagne breakfast.  Game viewing in the Serengeti is quite different from South Africa.

June 16 - 18  •  SOSSUSVLEI, Namibia--&Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Board the local charter flight back to Kilimanjaro where we will connect with the Lakani Private Jet and fly to Windhoek, capital of Namibia.  There you will transfer to a private charter flight bound for Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert.  Gaze at the large red dunes, some of the highest in the world, that surrounds the salt and clay pan in the Namib-Naukluft National Park.  You’ll see them from your luxury accommodations at the newly renovated lodge.

Explore the area on guided walks, nature drives, and by quad-bikes.  View San rock paintings and petrified dunes.  Discover Sesriem Canyon and Dead Vlei on excursions.  Float above the spectacular dunes in a helicopter to see the various hues from orange to terra cotta that tower over the vast, dry pan.  Join the resident astronomer for an evening of unforgettable stargazing at the state-of-the-art observatory.

June 19 - 21  •  CAPE TOWN, South Africa--One & Only Hotel

Your Private Jet flight brings you to Cape Town, South Africa.  Check into your luxury hotel located in the heart of the city.
