“If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa”
– John Hemingway –
This is luxury defined: An elegant adventure.
Throughout your journey, comfort, elegance and impeccable service can be expected. What sets us apart, however, is something a bit more intangible, magical: A meaningful experience. From the bird’s-eye view of your private aeroplane, you will witness the daily ebb and flow of the African wild far away from crowds– be it the effect of river systems on animal paths or the consequences of millions of years of erosion.

NO BETTER WAY – PRIVATE AIR TRAVEL
Alternatively – we have several aircraft types available for exclusive use charter flights globally and throughout Southern Africa. Private air travel is known to minimize exposure and to mitigate risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. Control and management of the environment can be implemented, and the use of private terminals where available can further reduce the risk of exposure, and minimise the number of touchpoints. We can arrange for an executive apron transfer at Johannesburg OR Tambo International Airport. Straight on to your waiting charter flight, with the condition that you travel with hand luggage only.
Africa is open for travel and most lodges have been receiving guests over the festive season.
