For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Go on a safari by sky on board a private jet

Following the success of its sold-out 2020 instalment, private jet pioneer Abercrombie & Kent have revealed details on their 2021 globe-spanning departure where up-close-and-personal animal experiences are on the agenda.

This 23-day journey allows just 48 guests to climb aboard A&K’s privately-chartered Boeing 757 starting in Seattle and visiting Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Madagascar and Rwanda before finishing off with a safari in Kenya. Along the way guests will have the unique opportunity to encounter rare species in their natural habitat, from Japan’s snow monkey to Madagascar’s playful lemurs, with conservation experts on-hand to give their insights.

Guests can personalise their journey with a choice of Design Your Day activities that may see them hiking to Bisoke Volcano in Rwanda or learning how to master Indian cuisine with a private cooking lesson. Experienced tour directors, local guides, a dedicated Photo Enrichment Coach and an onboard physician make this trip all the more relaxing.

Lodgings throughout the journey capture the character of each destination and A&K’s Travelling Bell Boy® service ensures your luggage will be waiting for you on arrival, giving you more time to explore. Highlights include the perfectly perched Angama Mara with views over the Masai Mara and the timeless luxury of The Peninsula Tokyo. Cuisine also captures hearts at each stop where entertainment and sweeping landscapes are paired perfectly with local dishes.

Between destinations, guests can relax on board in custom-designed Italian leather seats equipped with a personal massage system, four-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support that open into lie-flat beds. There is also additional seating for guests to mingle and enjoy a fully stocked open bar featuring top-shelf liquors. With one crew member for every six guests, curated entertainment and first-class meal service, your time in the sky will see you relaxed and well-rested for the adventures ahead.

A&K’s 23-day Wildlife Safari: Around the World by Private Jet journey takes place from 10 January – 2 February 2021 and is priced from $216,665 per person twin share, with the single supplement priced from $28,915.
