About this unique luxury experience
This experience is an amazing opportunity to encounter iconic and often critically endangered animals in their natural habitats and meet leading conservation experts.
On this 24-day trip, circle the globe by exclusively chartered private jet to experience one rewarding wildlife encounter after another: from Madagascar’s playful lemurs and the placid whale sharks of the Philippines to endangered mountain gorillas and the iconic Big Five.
You are able to personalise the journey with a choice of Design Your Day® activities, including active outdoor excursions, enriching cultural encounters and relaxing wellness experiences. In Cebu, swim with whale sharks, enjoy a leisurely 18 holes of golf or participate in one of the many activities offered at the resort. In India, tour the historic Ranthambore Fort, have a cultural encounter in a local village, savor the complex spices of Indian cuisine during a private cooking lesson or be pampered at a world-class spa.
A network of worldwide experts worked together to design an itinerary filled with authentic, invitation-only experiences beyond the reach of any other travel company. Learn about measures to protect endangered wildlife during eye-opening discussions with experts including a gorilla doctor, the founder of the Bornean Sunbear Conservation Centre and the president of the Groupe d’Etude et de Recherche sur les Primates de Madagascar.
Your tour will be orchestrated from start to finish with an experienced Tour Director. On the ground, guests travel in small groups of no more than 16, each led by a Tour Manager, assisted by expert local guides who share their personal stories and lend insights well beyond any guidebook. A dedicated Photo Enrichment Coach helps make the most of every wildlife encounter, with tips and advice for capturing animals in their natural habitats. For peace of mind, there is also an onboard Physician who travels with the group throughout the journey.
