To satisfy an increasing demand for immersive experiences in the natural world, the luxury tour provider has released a new private jet itinerary that explores nine destinations rich in wildlife.

Wildlife & Nature: Around the World by Private Jet is the newest itinerary to be launched by the luxury tour group Abercrombie & Kent (A&K), designed to appeal to those seeking wildlife-rich travel experiences.

The 26-day journey takes up to 48 guests to destinations in which the ecosystem is home to a species found nowhere else in the world. From monk seals in Hawaii to Tasmanian Devils in Australia’s island state, and Indonesia’s Komodo dragon, travellers will have the opportunity to see and experience some of the planet’s most extraordinary wildlife and natural phenomena.

In Brazil, the group will travel to Salvador’s Bay of All Saints and the Amazon to be immersed in the Riverine Ecosystem; while in Zambia, there’ll be a chance to spot the Big Five on game drives through the southwest African nation’s newest national park.

A professional photographer will accompany guests on the trip to capture their encounters and offer tips and guidance for those who wish to take their own snapshots.

“Our Wildlife Safari by Private Jet has sold out year after year. We’ve seen a growing demand for wildlife experiences and, based on guest feedback, we developed a new itinerary in search of iconic animals in some of the most exceptional destinations in the natural world”, said Ann Epting, Senior Vice President, Private Jet & Special Interest Travel.

Along the way, travellers will stay in luxurious accommodation that offers an authentic experience of the destination, including MACq01 in Tasmania, and Uga Chena Huts in Sri Lanka.

A&K’s Boeing 757 jet features 48 first-class, lie-flat seats, with a dedicated cabin crew on-hand to provide personalised service and an executive chef to create premium food and beverage options.

Wildlife & Nature: Around the World by Private Jet departs 2 September 2024, with prices from AUD$258,500 per person. A&K’s first wildlife-based itinerary, Wildlife Safari: Around the World by Private Jet, departs 14 February 2024, visiting destinations such as Japan, Borneo, India, Madagascar, and Uganda.
