The annual Roar Africa ‘Greatest Safari on Earth’ aboard Emirates Executive Private Jet is set to provide an extraordinary trip of a lifetime experience to ten discerning travellers in August/September next year.
With its ethos rooted in humanity, targeting sustainability and conservation, the life-changing itinerary delivers 10 guests in unbridled luxury to the four iconic African destinations that offer the ultimate adventure and encounters with environmental educators and conservation change makers.
The 12-day safari, hosted by CEO and Founder of ultra-luxe Africa travel specialist Deborah Calmeyer along with expert, knowledgeable guides, and renowned leaders, is priced at $125,000 per person.
“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 Calmeyer. To this end, we have curated this strategic itinerary by working from a place of deep insight and acute understanding of Africa’s many strengths and complexities. We have painstakingly selected profound destinations and intimate wildlife discoveries to reveal what must be done to ensure that Africa’s people, nature and animals survive and thrive. And knowing that time is a non-renewable resource, guests will appreciate the absolute exclusivity and unparalleled ease of travel.
“Having hosted our inaugural ‘Greatest Safari on Earth’ in August 2021, and witnessed first-hand its many life-changing moments, I truly believe this is the most extraordinary and impactful safari on earth. This authentic experience sets a new paradigm in ultra-luxe adventure and sustainable travel and is also a robust catalyst for change. In times like these when so many of us ache for the wild and long to explore a deeper more sustainable way of being, ROAR AFRICA removes the uncertainty and chaos of travel. You can go wilder, stay safer, dream bigger, and rediscover your innate and instinctive sense of adventure. It really will make your wildest dreams come true,” she adds.
Emirates A319 Executive Private Jet
Providing the sole means of international transport throughout the journey, the Emirates A319 was created for guests who want to go ‘beyond first class,’ and reflects the glamour of a bygone era when air travel was both exclusive and an integral aspect of luxury travel experiences. The jet features 10 private suites, private shower spa and powder room, an expansive lounge which functions as a communal gathering space or dining area, and a cabin crew committed to providing the highest levels of personal service.
The transformative and life-changing itinerary begins in Dubai where Roar Africa’s VIP guests will meet before embarking on the journey in ultimate privacy and comfort to Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls (one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World), the Okavango Delta in Botswana (the largest inland delta in the world), Kenya’s Great Migration, and the world’s last wild mountain gorillas in the forests of Rwanda.
Guests will experience spectacular locations of extraordinary properties, hand-picked because of their shared vision and commitment to creating a better future, combined with the charm and hospitality of their local communities and residents. The following is the itinerary:
• August 26 - Bvlgari, Dubai, UAE
• August 27, 28 - Matetsi, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
• August 29, 30, 31 - Xigera, Okavango Delta, Botswana
• September August 1, 2, 3 - Angama Mara, Maasai Mara, Kenya
• September 4, 5, 6 - Singita Kwitonda, Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda
Conscious that flying on the new A319 Executive Private Jet creates a significant carbon footprint, Roar Africa is ensuring the entire trip (flights and on-the-ground emissions) will be carbon neutral with high-quality offsets.
In addition, there are additional initiatives planned to thread sustainability leadership into the whole experience allowing guests to experience an intimate connection with where their money is spent on the ground and its positive impact.
The Roar Africa Emirates Executive Private Jet African Safari will also be offered from August 26 to September 7, 2023, the statement said.
