Heart of Africa Air Safari
It’s no secret that Africa is home to some of the world’s most incredible and beloved wildlife. Roaming through Africa’s unique, beautiful and largely untouched landscapes are the likes of lions, chimpanzees, wildebeest, zebra, giraffes, hippos, the list goes on (and on). There is nothing quite like seeing these stunning animals in their natural habitats. Many consider the opportunity a ‘once-in-a-lifetime experience’ and such sentiment isn’t far wrong, particularly when it comes to this month’s featured wildlife tour. The Heart of Africa Air Safari – curated by Livingstone’s Travel World – is considered the “ultimate in wildlife safaris”.
Wings over Africa
Soaring through the heart of Africa, on board a private luxury Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft, the Heart of Africa Air Safari offers the unmatched opportunity to witness spectacular sights, that you just wouldn’t see on the ground. From the comfort of your luxury cabin you will fly over the Serengeti, seeking out herds of wildebeest as they migrate across the plains. Later, you will ascend from the Mahale Mountains and glide along the shores of Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi, before descending into Likoma Island.
A low-level scenic flight over South Luangwa national park presents further opportunity to spot wildlife from above, while one along the Chobe River will take you into the Okavango Delta, one of the world’s most prolific wildlife destinations. You’ll soar over spectacular landscapes such as Kenya’s Masai Mara, and take in the magnificence of Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi and Botswana. And to top off your winged journey, a Flight of Angels over the world-famous Victoria Falls will simply take your breath away.
As exclusive and unique an air safari is, no wildlife safari would be complete without the magic of up-close encounters. And there’s no shortage of those with the Heart of Africa Safari. From trekking the Mahale Mountains to find Chimpanzees in their natural habitat, to a Game drive in Serengeti National Park, this once-in-a-lifetime wildlife tour gets you up-close-and-personal with some of Africa’s most spectacular species, in the best ways possible.
The expertly curated itinerary includes Game viewings along the Chobe River and in Chobe National Park, as well as in the world-renowned Okavango Delta, where you’ll spend two days. You’ll even be taken on a rather unique Game viewing via canoe, in Southern Zambezi National Park. Among the wildlife-packed schedule are designated leisure days, so you can even enjoy the different sights and cultures of Africa along the way. And, with 19 days at your disposable, there’ll be plenty of time to stop, unwind and rejoice in your epic journey.
