Come join us on the wildlife trip of a lifetime! Our upcoming departures have sold out, but there are several spaces left on our November 2023 trip.
It’s the ultimate celebration of wildlife around the world: an extraordinary 24-day journey by private jet that brings you up close to legendary species with scientists and conservationists who have made it their life’s work to protect them. In a single trip, you’ll have a chance to encounter some of the most threatened and most iconic creatures on the planet: Borneo’s orangutans, gorillas in Rwanda, the tigers of India, Madagascar’s lemurs, and the lions and leopards of South Africa, to name just a few. Sandesh Kadur, the creator of award-winning wildlife documentary films and photography books joins conservationist Steve Boyes and wildlife biologist Elizabeth Lonsdorf as your accompanying team of National Geographic Experts. The trio will share their insights and knowledge, and recount stories from the field. As you soar across Asia and Africa, touching down in remote corners of the globe, you’ll enjoy the ease and comfort of world-class accommodations and a VIP-configured private jet.

On this remarkable journey, we'll travel aboard a specially configured Boeing 757, which gives us unparalleled flexibility and the capacity to fly direct and maximize our time in each destination. Instead of the standard 233 seats, the jet's interior has been customized to accommodate up to 47 travelers as well as trip experts and staff. Travelers will enjoy two-by-two, VIP-style seating, handcrafted from the finest European leather, as well as access to our experts, who provide engaging lectures on the ground and in the air.

National Geographic Expeditions is considering guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local and international health authorities, the U.S. Travel Association, and The Walt Disney Company’s team of health experts to develop Health and Safety Protocols.
