Africa – the land home to some of the world’s most endangered species, natural monuments, human history and exotic wildlife is on many people’s bucket list. Chartering a private flight to Africa and between destinations allows for total convenience and visits to remote places.
With luxurious seats and in-flight service, you can be sure to enjoy the iconic safari country without the hassle of commercial flights. From breakfasts with giraffes at the Giraffe Manor in Kenya to the plains of the Serengeti, there are lots to do and see in Africa as you take a beautiful aerial voyage across this country.
Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning “the smoke that thunders” is what the locals call Victoria Falls, a beautiful waterfall on the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The best views of this natural spectacle made by Mother Nature is by helicopter, though many also do visit the falls in person. It is the only waterfall in the world that is more than a kilometer in length and is considered to be the largest in the world. The noise of the water can be heard from a distance of 25 miles, which is no wonder why the local tribes call it the way they do.

The Serengeti Migration, Tanzania
In the local Maasai language, Serengeti means “extended place.” It is also home to one of the most intricate and untouched ecosystems in the world. Here, you can take a private hot air balloon ride over the plains and toast to an unforgettable adventure with your significant other as you view the migration of Africa’s zebras, lions, rhinos, buffalos, cheetahs, leopards, and elephants.

Giraffe Manor, Kenya
As one of Nairobi’s most iconic retreats, the historic Giraffe Manor dates to the 1930s and offers a unique opportunity to interact with the Rothschild giraffe that resides there. In the mornings or evenings, these giraffes join you, quite literally, for breakfast. Here, the Rothschild giraffes will poke their long necks into the windows of the dining area in search of a treat.
The guests are able to directly interact with them and have a truly unique experience. It is the only place in the world where you can feed and photograph these giraffes over your tables, and view them from your bedroom window. Surrounding the Giraffe Manor is a beautiful forest with over 180 different bird species that you can meet.
