The Best Safari in Africa
Drawing on years of first hand knowledge of the continent, Planeta Azul has created a customisable travel experience that we can proudly declare to be the best African Safari available. Exploring two of Tanzania’s most treasured National Parks, the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, before crossing into Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park to visit one of the last communities of mountain gorillas on the planet, the sheer diversity of ecosystems and wildlife you’ll come into contact with makes this safari, simply the best.
A unique safari
At Tanzania’s Ngorongoro crater, you’ll discover how the caldera of this extinct volcano has evolved into a natural sanctuary for all types of fauna, including some of the last herds of black rhino’s in Tanzania. A light aircraft will then take you on a short flight to the heart of the migratory route, where you’ll board a hot air balloon to soar over the endless plains.
From here you’ll travel by aircraft to Rwanda, known as ‘the land of the thousand hills’, to photograph one of the last troops of mountain gorillas in their natural habitat, allowing you to experience the behaviour of this magnificent primate in all its majesty.
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.
There’s nothing better after a day filled with strong emotions and unforgettable experiences than relaxing in exclusive lodgings where you can be alone with your recollections of the day. Having a private room, to go over the high points of the day and to be able to relax and unwind with leisure facilities and even beauty treatments,is more than pleasurable, it’s a necessity.
Where luxury and the wilderness meet.
Thanks to Planeta Azul’s hand picked experiences and accommodations, you can be sure that this safari is one you’ll never forget.
