Emirates has teamed up with Roar Africa and Great Plains Conservation to launch what it says is the first carbon-negative private jet safari -- removing more carbon from the atmosphere than it generates -- from Sept. 22 to Oct. 4. The safari is available for just 10 travelers at a cost of $125,000 per person for a journey across four African destinations.
The 12-day trip starts in Dubai and offers all the luxuries of private travel aboard an Emirates A319 Executive Private Jet equipped with private suites and a shower. The trip offers travelers adventures and experiences in Botswana, Kenya, Rwanda and Zimbabwe. Travelers will stay at the Mpala Jena Camp in Zimbabwe, Duba Plains Camp in Botswana and Mara Plains Camp in Kenya, among others.
Designed with the aim to preserve and support some of Africa's most vulnerable wildlife, wild spaces and communities, the itinerary will take travelers to Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls (one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World), the Okavango Delta in Botswana (the largest inland delta on the planet), Kenya's Great Migration and to view the world's last wild mountain gorillas in Rwanda.
As part of a commitment to reversing the devastating effects of climate change, the companies promise to offset each guest's carbon footprint to a better than carbon-neutral status. In addition, Roar Africa will make a substantial donation to the Great Plains Foundation, which will go directly toward conservation education programs for young people who live in and around the areas visited.
