In a continent as vast, diverse and beautiful as Africa, you’re going to want to explore as much as possible. The only way to see the highlights is via private jet, and tour operator TCS has just the thing. Taking off from Athens on December 30, you’ll fly on a Boeing 757 to Rwanda. You’ll then embark on a scenic drive to Volcanoes National Park where, under the guidance of a naturalist expert, you’ll get to know a family of gorillas before retreating to the beautiful and conservation-conscious Bisate Lodge.
Soar to Cape Town
You’ll then soar to Cape Town for three nights, where you can curate your own itinerary — we recommend visiting Table Mountain and shopping on V&A Waterfront. Next, it’s on to Namibia to explore the vast desert on foot or quad bike, or by air, then to Botswana for big game spotting. You’ll also visit the tumbling Victoria Falls (turn to p86 for a high-adrenaline option), and fly to Madagascar and Kenya.
