Travcoa Introduces the Ultimate African Safari by Classic DC-3

Travcoa Introduces the Ultimate African Safari by Classic DC-3
Limited to just 18 guests, the all-inclusive Ultimate Africa by Classic DC-3 flying safari provides a unique opportunity for travelers to experience the people, culture, wildlife and beauty of Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa, while benefiting from the unique access, flexibility, and low-level flight-seeing for which the DC-3 is legendary.

DC-3 aircraft require shorter runways for takeoffs and landings making it ideal for exploring Africa's vast and remote areas. Travcoa's chartered DC-3 has been maintained to the highest commercial airline standards and the interior updated to provide passengers with the utmost comfort. The plane will be piloted by Captain Phillipus “Flippie” Vermeulen, who has over 30 years of commercial and private flight experience and a deep affection for Africa and the aircraft.

The journey will be hosted by Jerre Fuqua, Travcoa's president, led by veteran Travcoa Travel Director, Patricia Awori, and accompanied by expert local guides. Guests will encounter the authentic Africa few get to experience, from Africa's “Big Five”–lions, African elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards, and rhinoceroses–to the Great Wildebeest Migration of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti Plains. In the Okavango Delta, guests will view wildlife at eye-level while gliding silently through the marshy waterways by traditional mokoro canoe, and from the air during a helicopter flight-seeing excursion. Guests will also visit other iconic sites including Victoria Falls, the Cape of Good Hope and Table Mountain. Overnights in a selection of Africa's finest boutique hotels, tented safari camps and lodges are another highlight of the journey.

The Ultimate Africa Safari by DC-3 starts in Nairobi, Kenya on September 1 and ends in Cape Town, South Africa on September 20, 2014. The price for this all-inclusive 20-day small-group luxury tour is $39,990 USD per person, based on double occupancy.
