Aviation: The Art of Curated Travel

By Lauren Jade Hill

This story originally appeared in the March/April 2017 issue of Elite Traveler.

Enjoy seamless private jet charter by Victor to Madagascar, the oldest and most biodiverse island on the planet. This uniquely curated experience includes two exclusive remote lodges, connecting air travel (there being no road access) and suitably adventurous activities – from wreck diving and kayaking, to ancient cave-tomb exploration – courtesy of Natural World Safaris.



Victor charter from London Luton (LTN) to Amborovy Airport, Mahajanga (MJN), and return from Arrachart Airport (DIE) to London Luton (LTN) from $170,000, flying nonstop on a Bombardier Global Express.


Four nights with full board at Relais & Châteaux’s Anjajavy Le Lodge, which lies on a far-flung peninsula of baobabs, bays and lemurs on Madagascar’s western coastline. Anjajavy, a microcosm of the island, has no access roads and is reachable only by charter. Within a listed private nature reserve, this unique resort includes activities such as boat trips to Moramba Bay to see a 1,000-year-old baobab tree and a visit to the fascinating Sakalava tombs, tucked high into the limestone cliffs.

Three nights all-inclusive at new eco-adventure retreat Miavana – after a soft opening in April, it is expected to be one of 2017’s key luxury travel openings. Following a short Cessna charter and a 30-minute wave-skimming helicopter flight from Anjajavy, guests will arrive at the exquisite, private five-island archipelago housing this exciting new resort. Miavana, designed by the same architects as the Seychelles’ exclusive North Island resort, offers the perfect mix of peerless luxury and frontier adventure. Many special activities are accessed via helicopter: picnics and sleep-outs on breathtaking neighboring islands, and “blue safaris” including turtle hatching, tern nesting and dolphin spotting.

Local charter transfer to/between resorts by Cessna Grand Caravan and helicopter, respectively, included. Natural World Safaris’ on-the-ground itinerary is based on a party of four, starting at $15,200 per person.
