ExecuJet Tours & Safaris offers a range of tailor-made safari itineraries with private aircraft flights and transfers. Discovery Safaris will add to ExecuJet’s existing ultra-luxury offering, with privately guided fly-in safaris, authentic bush living and immersive wildlife adventures.

We pride ourselves on a fully immersive outdoor lifestyle – grilling freshly caught tiger fish and bream from the Okavango and Zambezi Rivers; watching herds of zebra and wildebeest graze over breakfast; or seeking lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs and more on horseback, in open-top vehicles or from the air. If you’re passionate about preserving our natural heritage, understanding the environment and learning about wildlife from experienced professionals, Discovery Safaris is for you.”
