Flying adventure experts Air Journey has unveiled a rare opportunity to circumnavigate the continent of Africa in your own airplane. This special opportunity begins Sept. 7 and returns to the United States 54 days and 19,500 nautical miles later on Oct. 30.
“We are very excited that we get to offer a trip to Africa like this,” says Air Journey’s Thierry Pouille. “It’s the kind of excursion that makes memories that stay with you for the rest of you life.”
There has never been so much included in a single journey, he added.
The group departs from Quebec City and crosses the Atlantic via Greenland, Iceland and Ireland, then continues south through Europe stopping in Prague, Venice and Greece before starting the tour of the African continent. Along the way, pilots will visit Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia and Congo before continuing on to Senegal, the Canary Islands, Portugal and Northern Ireland before returning home. The Air Journey group will visit 24 countries.
As with all Air Journey trips, a professional escort will accompany the group every step of the way, arranging all international flight plans, fueling stops, customs/immigration, weather briefings, eAPIS filings, hotels, meals and visits to local attractions.
As with all Air Journey adventures, guests stay at the very finest hotels in the region and experience true gourmet dining with a local flair, according to company officials. The group will stop at virtually every site of major significance along the way, including the Governor’s Camp in Kenya, the heart of the famed wildebeest migration, Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe, the largest waterfall in the world and considered the 7th Wonder of the World, the historic spice plantations in Zanzibar, the lost city of Petra (think Indiana Jones), and even get the rare opportunity to view white sharks — either in a cage or from the deck of the boat — off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa (the live shark used in the movie Jaws was captured here). From the beginning, this Air Journey expedition to circumnavigate Africa has been designed to be a once in a lifetime adventure, Pouille said.
