The experience of a lifetime
Imagine flying 10 feet above the crystal clear waters of the Indian
Ocean, spotting dolphins as they ride the waves, then gently landing
on a secluded beach, where you enjoy a sumptuous breakfast laid
out especially for you. Indulge in a swim or snorkel before setting
off to explore the scenic beauty of nature from a bird’s
After enjoying a delicious lunch at a secret spot, a short walk
brings you closer to the natural wonders of Africa. From here
you fly over the grassy plains of Africa to a private game reserve
where your private game drive vehicle and ranger awaits, ready
to explore the African bush in search of the abundant wildlife
including the Big Five.
Enjoy sundowners at an idyllic spot in the bush as the African
sun turns the sky into a fiery display of colour while sipping
away at your favourite drink. On the way back to your luxury lodge
where an extravagant bush dinner awaits you, the ranger points
out the unique nocturnal animals and birds.
Around the campfire you reflect on the days’ incredible
experiences, with Africa’s ever-changing landscapes playing
back in your minds’ eye as you linger on the memories of
your African safari. Luckily tomorrow is another day with its’
own unique adventures, experiences and excitement!
You fall asleep with the sounds of the African bush, content with
life, looking forward to the next part of your journey with Distinctive
Combine your helicopter safari with a classic
mobile safari and luxury
lodge safari to Botswana’s famous wildlife
reserves or spend a week on a private yacht, exploring the tropical
islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago. A luxury
rail safari and a visit to a private
game reserve before or after your helicopter safari
compliments the experience.
