After the epic success of The Greatest Safari on Earth, ROAR AFRICA guest appetites for extraordinary, uncharted African adventures aboard the Emirates Executive Private Jet were clear. To answer that client demand, we decided to zone in on the wildest of the wild – an immersive, rewilding experience for our most intrepid guests amongst vast tracts of wilderness brimming with unparalleled wildlife encounters in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Tanzania, and Rwanda aboard the Emirates Executive Private Jet. To stay, the sustainable luxury of Singita lodges– simply the best of the best in Africa
Every waking moment of my life is devoted to protecting and preserving the precious wildlife and wild spaces my home continent has left. This unique itinerary aboard the ultimate magic carpet, is about showcasing the wonder and healing only deep immersion in nature delivers. The Wildest Safari on Earth marries cutting-edge anti-poaching teams and game-changing black rhino relocation initiatives with rare wildlife sightings and deep seclusion in the most beautiful game reserves and national parks on the continent. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done before. And, of course, we aim to minimize the environmental impact of ROAR AFRICA travel and purchase carbon credits equivalent to all our emissions, contribute to wildlife preservation, and invest in the communities that host us at each step of our journey.
The Wildest Safari on Earth kicks off amidst the serene splendor of Dubai’s Bvlgari Resort. From the UAE, we’ll fly on the Emirates Executive Private Jet to the wild beauty of Zimbabwe’s Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, famous for its colorful Masa trees, ancient rock art sites, and elusive black rhino population. We’ll stay at the sublime Singita Pamushana and meet their 120-person strong anti-poaching team, an innovative and massively successful project entirely comprised of ex-poachers. After three days of extraordinary game drives and sundowner sails, we’ll continue our rewilding odyssey at Singita Ebony Lodge in the pristine Sabi Sand conservancy. Adventures will include close observation of over 500 species of birds, guided bush walks, and game drives across wildly beautiful landscapes with the highest density of leopards in South Africa. To spend unhurried time so close to these majestic cats with all the expert insights and knowledge of a ROAR AFRICA guide is an experience that will stay with you forever. Our third stop takes us to Tanzania’s vast Grumeti Reserve, adjacent to the Serengeti National Park. The Edwardian elegance of Singita’s Sasakwa Lodge will be your Serengeti sanctuary for three days of wildlife encounters with cheetahs, leopards, and so much more. To close out this trip of a lifetime, a trek with Rwanda’s last mountain gorillas beneath the ancient forest canopy of Volcanoes National Park. For this steeped-in-adventure itinerary, we have chosen to exclusively partner with Singita. Each uniquely stunning lodge is 100% sustainable with unparalleled African style, service, and a shared belief that nature is a healing force.
Join us on what will be a journey of adventure, reconnection, and wonder at the wild beauty of Africa’s fleeting wilderness.
Your wildest adventure awaits.
I can no longer describe the beauty I have seen. Superlatives seem inadequate, as does everything else. This was perfection - an itinerary to contrast, not compete. Each moment astonishing. Each location extraordinary. In Africa, once is not enough.
I witnessed my first sunset, golden, godly light reflected on a tranquil Zambezi. Kaleidoscopes of exquisite colour, flaming red, periwinkle blue …we were somewhere between heaven and earth. There were so many reasons to pause, to reflect - an overwhelming gratitude. By day, the glorious guides offered us their extraordinary Africa, from scorched savannahs to the Okavango oasis, from the majestic Mara to the verdant volcanoes. Lions dreamed beside us, leopards perched on branches above, hyenas watched with blood red faces. Hungry lion cubs orbited the termite mound while cheetah cubs mirrored their huntress. The mountain gorillas - the ultimate privilege - once is not enough.
Luxurious lodges, galleries of perfection, temples of serenity. Grace and honour, a bubbling joy, dancing and laughter. Endless praise for the smiles, the kindness, the dutiful pleasure, the exceptional care. Inspired and humbled by Joseph Dhafana and Kasiva Mutua.
We flew like angels, we soared. We shook our heads in wonder, we closed our eyes in prayer.
Deb, and team, words will never be enough. Your vision, your power, your exquisite execution - only here there is no contrast, no one can compete.
