The first-of-its-kind adventure is available to just ten guests

Earlier this week, travel specialist Roar Africa announced that it's partnering with Emirates to offer an exclusive  private jet safari that combines luxury travel with extraordinary adventure.

The inaugural 12-day trip will bring guests aboard an Emirates A319 Executive Private Jet, equipped with private suites and showers,  mini-bars and lie-flat beds,  a spacious lounge that doubles as a restaurant and gathering space, as well as gourmet meals and wine fines.

Despite the lavish accommodations, the trip’s main focus will be on sustainability and conservation, and will be 100 per cent carbon neutral.

“It has never been more important than now to curate experiences that facilitate an understanding of how the natural world works, and why and how we should help,” says Roar Africa CEO Deborah Calmeyer in a statement. “By encouraging active participation and insightful dialogue between informed, conscious travelers and local communities,” she adds, the trip’s objective is “to change the philosophy and worldview of leaders (with what) I truly believe is the most impactful safari experience on earth.”

The adventure starts in September 2020 in Dubai, where after a night at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, guests will board the A319. The first stop will be Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, where guests will stay at the Mpala Jena Camp, which is located on a private concession within the Zambezi National Park. Throughout the remainder of the trip, guests will visit Zambezi National Park, the Okavango Delta and the Volcanoes National Park across Kenya and Rwanda before flying back to Dubai.

The 12-day safari is priced at US$125,000 per person with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Great Plains Foundation. Booking and information can be requested at welcome@roarafrica.com.
