Couples, families, and groups of friends can now hire SkySafari’s 9-seater executive-class Cessna Caravan exclusively for a complete private safari experience.

(NAIROBI, KENYA) JUNE 11, 2020: SkySafari announces the launch of private plane buyout safari experiences for 2021 offering set itineraries to some of the finest camps and lodges in Kenya and Tanzania in collaboration with The Elewana Collection. SkySafari is a popular choice for guests wanting to avoid traveling on scheduled regional flights and eliminates the difficulties of having to hire one’s own private plane. Guests will enjoy supreme business class comfort, safety and convenience aboard SkySafari’s own 9-seater executive-class Cessna Caravan, allowing them to have complete privacy and security in-flight.

SkySafari will continue to offer shared scheduled departures. However, due to demand for private travel experiences, SkySafari has launched two itineraries that are priced for full buyout of the plane from two to nine passengers. This new offering appeals to families, especially multi-generation travel, groups of friends and couples that require complete seclusion. The seven-night exclusive Tanzania Classic starts at US $12,469 for a couple and up to US $7,294 per person for a full plane of nine passengers. The Exclusive Kenya Classic Itinerary starts from US $12,863, per person for two passengers and US $6,674, per person, for a full plane. The pricing includes seven-nights accommodation on full board (including drinks), SkySafari flights, transfers and park fees.

All SkySafari passengers enjoy a fast-track airport experience, butler service at all of the properties, full buyout of a private safari vehicle while on safari, as well as only one check-in and check-out during the journey. In summary, a luxury, stress-free experience, that enables guests to enjoy direct transfers, avoid multiple stops on busy scheduled regional aircraft and maintain a high level of privacy during safari.

Mia Lawson, General Manager for SkySafari comments “We remain committed to offering our traditional SkySafari set itinerary departures which offer guests exclusive group travel in the private plane, however there is no denying that recent world events have resulted in an increased desire for completely exclusive travel. To meet the demands from our customers, we have introduced the option to buyout the SkySafari package at a price point that is still competitive with hiring a private jet.”

SkySafari Classic in Tanzania starts at the Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge, with accommodation in one of the beautifully designed Plantation Houses nestled amongst the coffee bushes. Guests then join the SkySafari plane to transfer to Elewana Tarangire Treetops where elevated rooms built into the Baobab trees offer magical views of Tarangire National Park. The journey continues to Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro, part of a huge coffee estate with Cape Dutch-style farm houses and day trips to the UNESCO World Heritage Ngorongoro Crater before concluding at either Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp or Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp, depending on which is nearer the famous annual migration at the time. SkySafari Tanzania departs every other day with a minimum of two confirmed guests.

The SkySafari Classic Kenya journey begins with overnight in Nairobi and includes two nights at Elewana Tortilis Camp Amboseli in the foothills of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro bordering Amboseli National Park, two nights at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp in the impressive 56,000 acre Loisaba Conservancy, one of Kenya’s most important elephant corridors, and two nights at Elewana Sand River Masai Mara in the famous fertile savannah of the Masai Mara. SkySafari Kenya departs every other day with a minimum of two confirmed guests.
