Once in a Lifetime Africa

Featured in the May edition of National Geographic Traveler magazine, Travcoa  September 2010 Flying Safari Expedition is the tour of a lifetime, an extraordinary 18-day expedition of over 3,500 miles across South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique in a beautifully restored Douglas DC-3. A maximum of 14 guests will enjoy an insiders view as we get off-the-beaten-path in comfort and style to experience an Africa few will ever see, including VIP invitation to the most significant cultural event on the African continent, the Zulu Kings Reed Dance.

Who would have thought it possible to experience, in a single voyage, the vast variety and beauty at the soul of Africa? More than four times the size of the continental US, Africa spreads many of its must-see places in widely-separated regions, beyond comfortable connection by light aircraft. In each region, remote areas hide special treasures, inaccessible to commercial airlines or private jets. Until now, experiencing the range of authentic Africa’s wildlife, peoples and places was the exclusive privilege of the few adventurers, VIPs and celebrities who could commission a private classic airliner expedition to fly them directly to the magnificent lodges or distant bush camps of far-spread regions.

  • Your 3,500-mile Africa expedition will be flown in the ambiance of the golden age of aviation. Two senior airline pilots, a flight hostess and your expedition leader will accompany you throughout the safari
  • You will fly directly and easily between some of the most magnificent hotels, lodges, tented camps and wildlife areas to be found anywhere in the world. By not having to return to airports, you will gain extra days to enjoy Africa
  • You will have special access to the best guides, the most knowledgeable local experts, the most extraordinary places and the most interesting people
  • Explore Zambia’s pristine South Luangwa National Park
  • Experience “Theatre in the bush” at Mfuwe
  • Relax on the beach of a tropical Island off Mozambique
  • See how a Zululand game reserve is bringing back endangered species
  • Attend the Zulu King’s Reed Dance at the royal compound
  • Take a low-level flight along the Drakensberg and Transkei Wild Coast
  • See the famed Cape Garden Route by land and from the air
  • Enjoy a private visit to Oudtshoorn’s “Feather Palace”
