ROAR AFRICA is usually in the forefront of providing ultra luxe travel to Africa, as evidenced by its recent introduction of the $125,000 greatest hits of Africa “Greatest Safari on Earth.” So it’s not surprising that CEO and Founder Deborah Calmeyer is now announcing ROAR PRIVÉ in which every aspect of the trip will be exclusive to a family or small group traveling together. Trips can start the moment borders open for international tourism; Rwanda is set to open on July 1, South Africa on September 1st. Botswana, Zambia and Madagascar, the other countries in which itineraries are planned, don’t have opening dates yet.

This division has apparently been in the works for awhile according to Calmeyer. “It was borne from foresight into the future of travel, and an understanding of what our guests are going to want to travel to Africa,” she says. “The current devastating humanitarian and economic impact of COVID-19 has forced us to reimagine travel anew, with smarter itineraries, smaller footprints, and the kinds of transformative experiences that foster empathy, open-mindedness, and a connectedness between those who travel and the communities who benefit from it.” A percentage of all profits will be funneled back to conservation.

Key to the plan is an alliance with VistaJet, the global private aviation company, and the use of private air terminals in all points of transit; guests travel privately from New York, London or Paris on VistaJet’s Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft and privately within Africa on Pilatus PC12 aircraft or helicopter. Also important since some travelers may still be wary of traveling to a region with varying healthcare facilities is the inclusion of access to world class Medi-centers in Johannesburg equipped in worst case scenarios to deal with Ebola and COVID-19 if the need arises.

Itineraries include private villas or buyouts of lodges and camps. A sample itinerary in South Africa would include three days each in the 271,816 acre Tswalu Kalahari, the largest private game reserve in South Africa with 80 species of mammals within it, and three in 45,000 acre Sabi Sands, the country’s original private reserve bordering Kruger National Park.

In Tswalu Kalahari, the accommodation is Tarkuni, the former home of the Oppenheimer family, formerly a major force in the country’s diamond trade and longtime conservation advocates. The house has five suites and a private staff with trackers able to take guests on vehicle drives or bush walks to observe the elusive black rhino. Safaris on horseback can also be arranged with the traditional sundowner at dusk replaced by an unusual visit with a group of habituated meerkats.

The house and pool at Singita Castleton


ROAR AFRICA

In Sabi Sands, guests stay at Singita Castleton, the former family home of Singita founder Luke Bailes, composed of a main house with common areas and six mud and thatch cottages. Safaris can be bush walks or in vehicles but given its location near a waterhole, guests can often see wildlife just from the main house. A private tennis court is also available for guests who want to keep up their game. Of particular note are the meals here: Singita, as a group, is known for extraordinary cuisine and wine selection and both of those aspects are available here.

Looking forward to other countries opening: the six day itinerary to Zambia and Madagascar will include three days each in Time + Tide Chinzombo in Zambia’s 5656 square mile Luangwa National Park, a reserve with a dense, varied wildlife concentration, and three days in the lush ecosystem of the 37,066 acre marine conservancy surrounding Time + Tide Miavana in Madagascar. Another in Botswana features three days at Selinda Explorers Camp in the 300,000 acre private wildlife sanctuary Selinda Reserve and three in Duba Explorers Camp in the heart of the UNESCO Heritage Site Okavango Delta, one of the richest wildlife settings in the continent overall.
