The luxury experiential travel company &Beyond have just announced their new private jet expeditions which offer exclusive experiences in Africa’s most iconic destinations. With set departures, the tours carter to a maximum of 12 guests who are guided by &Beyond from the beginning to end, and are designed with privacy and authenticity in mind to remove the challenging travel logistics and include the exclusive benefits of VIP facilities.
The tours use private jets like the spacious and luxurious Embraer 145 for the international leg of the trip, with a comfortable living area and three-seater couches. A combination of turbo-pop fixed wing aircraft and helicopters such as the Bell 407 and Bell 206 will then take guests to more remote bush destinations.
“To coincide with &Beyond’s milestone 25th birthday, we have spent over a year crafting the journey of a lifetime, highlighting all the African destinations where &Beyond operates,” explains Joss Kent, &Beyond CEO. “We have used our extraordinary safari lodges and camps, as well as the wealth of expertise that we have access to through our private specialist guides and ground logistics teams, to create an adventure unlike any other.”
&Beyond is offering a choice of three set-departure itineraries, with the departure dates carefully chosen to include the seasonal highlights of each destination. The tours are designed to maximise time spent in each destination, with behind the scenes glimpses of African conversation, politics and history, and engagement with individuals who have played an integral role in sculpting the continent’s fascinating history, as well as wildlife experts who have initiated or influenced ground-breaking wildlife and conservation projects.
In addition to the three set itineraries, guests travelling out of any international airport can tailor-make their own private jet expedition for groups of various sizes.
