Emirates Executive’s 12-day sustainable African safari makes a positive impact.

As the world of private aviation increasingly focuses on ways to become more ecologically sound, Emirates Executive has partnered with Roar Africa to create an African experience that is not just the luxurious trip of a lifetime, but which also targets sustainability, humanity and conservation.

Titled the ‘Greatest Safari on Earth’, the journey exclusively on board Emirates Executive’s unique A319 delivers 10 guests in sumptuous luxury to four iconic African destinations for exciting adventures and educational encounters with environmental leaders and conservation change makers.  Conscious that flying on the A319 creates a significant carbon footprint, Roar Africa is ensuring that the entire trip, including flights and on-the-ground emissions, will be carbon neutral, with high-quality offsets. In addition, there are initiatives planned to thread sustainability leadership into the whole experience, allowing guests to experience an intimate connection with where their money is spent on the ground and positive impact it can make.


The 12-day safari, which is priced at US$125,000 per person, takes in Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls (one of the seven natural wonders of the world), the Okavango Delta in Botswana (the largest inland delta in the world), Kenya’s Great Migration, and the world’s last wild mountain gorillas in the forests of Rwanda.
