Safari Air, the first green, luxury private jet charter service offering flights on a per-seat basis, announced today that it is set to take flight on October 15 with the world's first 21-day "Around the World Grand East Africa Safari."
Designed exclusively for eight passengers aboard a luxurious Gulfstream IV private jet, this 25,450-mile adventure will depart from John Wayne Airport in Orange County, CA and will circle the globe, making leisurely stopovers at world-class hotels in Quebec City, Edinburgh, Cairo, Agra-India, Hong Kong, Guam and Honolulu. The centerpiece of this amazing journey will be a two-week African safari by award-winning Micato Safaris beginning in Kilimanjaro and featuring one week in both Tanzania and Kenya at the finest tented safari camps and lodges.
"Safari Air is proud to purchase carbon offsets for each passenger mile and do our part to help reduce global warming," said Ken Jillson, CEO and founder. "And by flying relatively short daytime flights, jet lag is minimized, thus creating a leisurely eco-friendly around the world
experience for our passengers. The added bonus of restful stopovers in five-star hotels is that our guests get to see amazing sights along the way such as the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal and magnificent Hong Kong Harbor. Priced at $144,500 per person, it's an unparalleled value for our unique clients."
