Next Level World Travel: Private Jet Itineraries Are Taking Off

As the demand for bespoke, one-of-a-kind travel experiences skyrockets, luxury trips designed around the use of private jets are becoming de rigueur for granting guests no-holds-barred access to the world at large.

Luxury experiential travel company andBeyond recently announced the launch of its new Private Jet Expeditions to some of Africa’s most iconic destinations for 2017 and 2018. These privately guided set-departure journeys accommodate a maximum of 12 guests, and rely on private jets (Embraer 145, Pilatus PC12) for the international legs of each expedition and a combination of turbo-prop fixed wing aircraft and helicopters (Bell 407, Bell 206) to access more remote destinations. A 19-day East and Southern Africa itinerary offers one of andBeyond’s most comprehensive trips to date. While many African adventures combine only two or three countries, jet travel allows this new itinerary to combine experiences in six countries, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Botswana, Tanzania, and Kenya. Along the way guests will get a chance to participate in an exclusive rhino notching experience at andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa and explore the Serengeti with Jonathan Scott, the award-winning presenter from the Big Cat Diary. Departures September and October 2017, from $116,500 per person; buuteeq.com.
