Travellers with enough disposable income and a particular thirst for some of the world’s most expensive luxury experiences will want to pay attention to this one. Following their partnership in 2019 on a carbon-neutral private jet safari, Emirates and Roar Africa have decided to elevate the concept with what is now the world’s most expensive private jet safari experience. Dubbed the “Sand, Sea, & Safari” itinerary, the packed 17-day schedule will cost no less than US$163,300 (AU$253,400) per person and take guests across Dubai, Namibia, South Africa, and Madagascar.

Announced this week via Robb Report, the private jet safari is only being offered for a total of ten travellers who are available between May 13 and May 30, 2024. As the name of the itinerary suggests, you’ll start in the sand before taking the seas and throwing yourself at some of Africa’s best safaris.

Roar Africa describes it as a “transformational journey of contrasts,” taking place on an exclusive Emirates A319 Executive Private Jet that has been customised with 10 private suites with flat beds and fine linens, a separate lounge area and a luxury shower spa. On board, guests are promised a fine dining experience paired with a selection of top-shelf wines.

The first day of the itinerary brings travellers to Dubai with an overnight at the lush Bvlgari Resort. After the pre-trip prep is taken care of, it’s off on that private jet straight to Namibia with three nights at Soussusvlei Desert Lodge. One of the country’s finest luxury lodges has a solid reputation for star gazing in the arid Namibian desert, so three days should be more than enough to take it all in alongside some safari action.

The private jet safari experience then heads to Cape Town with four nights at the Ellerman House coastal resort – the base for numerous side excursions like hot air ballooning, food tours, and the tourist essentials of Table Mountain and Robben Island. I think the itinerary would be remiss if it didn’t include a visit to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, so I’m just going to assume that’ll be on the cards as well.

A few days soaking up wine country at the Delaire Graff Wine Estate in Stellenbosch follows with side trips to Singita for a safari. Madagascar is the cap of this trip, spending time at a tiny island called Nosy Anko with accommodation at the Miavana by Time + Tide Resort.

You’ve got some time to decide whether you want to funnel your disposable income into this once-in-a-lifetime trip. The “Sand, Sea, & Safari” itinerary starts in May 2024.
