Our private jet flight today from Livingstone, Zambia, to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, took just under three hours, far quicker than flying by commercial carrier. It was just enough time to enjoy a delicious on-board luncheon consisting of a la carte choices of fresh bream (a Zambezi river fish), roast lamb and a lighter, vegetarian option. [...]

March 27, 2014 – Zambia - Day 2

A good night’s rest under African stars and a hearty breakfast prepared us to enjoy today’s main attraction — spectacular Victoria Falls.

It was well worth it, however, [...]

Africa: Across a Continent by Private Jet

March 17, 2014 – Botswana

Botswana, considered by many Africa’s last remaining wilderness, is a place far off the beaten path that hearkens back to the pioneering days on the continent. Our daily excursions in open-sided four-wheel-drive vehicles yielded many sightings. Chobe’s massive population of elephants was in evidence, with large family groups coming down to the river each [...]
