Brochure Request

 

If you’re taking the trip of a lifetime, it should be the very best!
Your World Tour will be dedicated to well-being, to the art of living joyfully, and above all to the most extraordinary of discoveries.

From day one, you will enter the fabulous world of a private plane. The crew, your own appointed seat and our experienced on-board chef specializing in “high-class cuisine in the skies” will soon transform this aircraft into your home away from home. Pure pleasure.

Without a worry for your baggage or airport formalities, you take off: destination Las Vegas. All of a sudden, you find yourself in the midst of one of those spectacular American experiences that can be found nowhere else, whether it’s a fantastic performance of the Cirque du Soleil or your choice of a road or helicopter trip into the majestic Grand Canyon. The next moment you’re across the Pacific, touring Honolulu or the exceptional Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. A World Tour also means relaxing on an idyllic tropical beach and getting a taste of the unattainable — this year, it’s the Fiji islands. Following this restful destination, you will set your sights for Australia and its cultural capital, Melbourne, repeatedly voted the “world’s most livable city,” to discover the wine route or the Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles. Asia is next, with the famous temples of Angkor, then Sri Lanka, the stuff of dreams. The incredible journey continues as you fly across the Indian Ocean in your comfortable plane and touch down in Africa, a unique destination for a World Tour! You will experience a wildlife safari in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro sanctuary, and then return to the roots in Ethiopia, the cradle of humanity. Lastly, from the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon: Jerusalem welcomes you to cap off this unique and distinctive itinerary.

In addition to the great interest of each destination, a World Tour is the only way to get a truly panoramic perspective on the planet in all its immediacy, and to hold all its vastness, its contrasts, its places and its peoples in your hands like a bouquet of many flowers. Your World Tour will be fastpaced without being tiring — it’s possible! In a private plane.

An Air Cruise by Safrans du Monde is uniquely sophisticated: it can be customized to your personal taste. All visits are included in the basic program. They are small group activities, with 30, 20 or even 16 people at most, and each group is independent. However, at each tour destination, you can choose from different variations, which allow you new ways to discover places that may already be familiar to you.

This World Tour is a festival filled with encounters, incredible shows and special moments to share with those who, like you, are taking the trip of a lifetime, one that they have always dreamed of or one they have selected to celebrate an important event.

Sometimes the most beautiful experiences cannot be imagined.
They have to be lived!
