The Itinerary – May 13th to May 30th, 2024

Just ten guests will journey beyond first class starting from Dubai’s Bvlgari Hotel. We will fly to the multi-colored desert dunes of Namibia’s storied Sossusvlei. After three nights of desert drives and hot air ballooning over the ochre sands, we’ll touch down to the cosmopolitan delights of Cape Town. Ellerman House—a sophisticated, art-filled mansion on the ocean will be our pied-a-terre while we discover the city’s creative, cultural, architectural, and culinary delights. Enjoying a few days unwinding at the inimitably elegant Delaire Graff Wine Estate in the Cape Winelands. From the emerald Winelands, we’ll head on to a safari at Singita in the Sabi Sand, a conservancy brimming leopards, other big cats, and incredible opportunities for close wildlife encounters. To finish, we’ll take our magic carpet to Madagascar, the oldest geographical island on earth, rich in biodiversity, sapphire blue water, and inquisitive lemurs.
