As a new Four Seasons Private Jet prepares to take flight in 2021, the leading luxury hospitality company has revealed its first itineraries for 2022, which includes an all-new, family-friendly Africa tour.
“The Four Seasons Private Jet Experience was created for travellers who want to see the world, immerse themselves in new cultures and share in unique adventures, all while part of an end-to-end Four Seasons experience,” says Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“Since our inaugural journey in 2015, the response has been overwhelming. Many of our trips consistently sell out, often with repeat guests, and as travellers look ahead to the future, we expect to see the same level of interest in our 2022 itineraries. Today’s travellers are choosing brands they trust to place a priority on health and safety while still offering the highest quality product. With Four Seasons, they can explore the world with the peace of mind that travelling and staying with us provides.”
An All-New, Family-Friendly Itinerary
• African Wonders - December 28, 2021 to January 9, 2022 – Athens, Greece - The Pyramids, Egypt (day trip) – Serengeti, Tanzania – Mauritius - Rwanda - Victoria Falls, Zambia (day trip) - Johannesburg, South Africa
For the first time, Four Seasons has designed an enriching 13-day itinerary that’s perfect for families and travellers of all ages. Along the way, guests will immerse themselves in Africa’s rich cultures, deep traditions, fascinating history and modern-day ecology with hands-on experiences guided by subject experts.
Beginning with a day trip from Athens to the ancient Pyramids in Egypt with a private guide, guests learn about Egyptian deities, hieroglyphics and the legendary child ruler King Tut. Highlights in the Serengeti include a bird’s-eye view of the vast grasslands aboard a hot air balloon and a torchlit dinner party in the bush to ring in the New Year. In Mauritius, where travellers enjoy luxurious villa accommodations, there are plentiful opportunities to explore the island’s tropical splendour whether at sea or by horseback, as well as its colourful culture borne of centuries of diverse influences.
Back on the continent in the lush forests of Rwanda, conservation is at the forefront as guests go on a gorilla trek and meet with local scientists and veterinarians caring for the country’s endangered primates. Then, a special day trip to Victoria Falls offers a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It concludes with a final stop in the vibrant city of Johannesburg, a gateway from which travellers may opt to plan further exploration to extend this unforgettable journey through Africa.
Additional activities will be tailored to the interests and ages of each guest in concert with Four Seasons concierge teams in each destination.
