African Adventure is a one of a kind safari, where you’ll discover the continent’s wildest and most naturally beautiful areas. Flying between the countries of Tanzania, Rwanda, Botswana and Zambia and taking in a number of habitats and ecosystems, this is an African experience like no other.
A one of a kind journey across the continent
In northern Tanzania, we’ll visit the Ngorongoro Crater National Park – a natural refuge in the world’s largest non-active volcanic caldera that’s home to a staggering array of large mammals and other fauna – before heading to the rolling plains of the Serengeti to witness one of the world’s great natural events; the great migration.
From the plains, we’ll take to the forested slopes of Rwanda, to visit some of the last remaining communities of mountain gorillas in the wild. Landing in the capital, Kigali, we’ll head inland to the gentle hills of Volcanoes National Park, where after trekking into their forest home, you’ll be able to observe and photograph these magnificent primates from up to 5 meters away.
Our next destination sees us fly by light aircraft to the south of the continent and the Okavango Delta. Landing on a small airstrip, right on one of the many small islands that make up this wetland habitat, you’ll be situated in the heart of what is one of Africa’s last true remaining wildernesses. After discovering the birds and wildlife of the area, we’ll travel to Linyati Private Reserve, which, thanks to its unique landscape is a sanctuary for some of the continent’s most emblematic animals, and an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Our adventure ends on a literal high note. Flying first to Livingstone in Zambia, your first stop will be a luxury campsite on the banks of the Zambezi river, for some rest and relaxation. Over the following days, you’ll visit the magnificent natural spectacle of Victoria Falls, as well as taking a boat up river, to, weather permitting, witness one of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere in the world. An unforgettable end, to an experience you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Five reasons why
Making memories. A safari is simply an unforgettable experience. Having the privilege to explore some of the planets’ last remaining wilderness, and seeing the wildlife and countryside first hand, feels like being inside a nature documentary. Truly a one of a kind experience.
Perfect pictures. The sheer natural beauty of the landscapes, and being able to observe the unique wildlife up close, makes this a perfect experience for photographers of all levels.
Escape the mundane. For most, travel is an opportunity to break out of our routines, to disconnect and engage with the wider world. On safari you’ll be completely in the moment, away from screens and distractions, giving you the escape you need to return, recharged and energised.
A different concept of luxury. Even though you’ll be far from civilisation, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and amenities you’ll receive, even on the most isolated campsites. The reduced capacity of all our accommodation and personal attention you’ll receive will make you feel right at home.
Sheer Inspiration. For many of our customers, the landscapes, wildlife and cultures they’ve encountered have helped to inspire them in their professional life; from architecture, music, fashion to inspiration for novels. We’re convinced that if you’re facing a block, a safari in Africa will give you the push you need.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of the savannah, the jungle or in the heart of the wild, at every point in your journey you’ll receive the comfort, luxury, privacy, top class attention to detail and organisation you’d expect, thanks to the exclusive lodgings and accommodations selected for you by Planeta Azul.
Where luxury and romanticism meet
At Planeta Azul, we believe that the more extreme the experience, and more intense the emotions lived, the better you appreciate the finer things in life.

After dinner, unwind with top of the range leisure facilities before turning in for the night in luxury lodgings, with all the amenities you could wish for. A perfect end to a perfect day, setting you up perfectly to experience it all again tomorrow.
