An Equatorial Exploration by Private Jet
27 Oct 2017
Get up close to the world’s most untamed jungle. Walk through eerie lunar landscapes. Feel the echoes of ancient culture through layers of colonial history. And let the Caribbean cajole. This 21-day journey by private jet takes you on an adventure through the most exotic and rarely-visited gems of the world.
There is no better place to toast your approaching adventure than the elegant Luton Hoo country manor outside London. After meeting your fellow travellers over cocktails, fine wines and champagne, dine on the finest British cuisine in the grand Romanov Suite, made from the best local seasonal produce by Chef Will Hughes. The following morning, depart from the Harrods VIP Terminal for Hamilton, Bermuda, staying at the luxurious Hamilton Princess Hotel and Beach Club - a historic hotel that first opened in 1885 - and allow this unique experience to unfold.
Enjoy three nights in Havana, where you can wander the streets of Old Havana in Cuba, taking in the city's crumbling grandeur, the opulent Captain General’s Palace and some of Ernest Hemingway’s old haunts.
Fly from Cuba to Guatemala where you'll delight in another three night stay with plenty of time to explore all the sights and sounds of beautiful Antigua, with its charming Spanish Baroque architecture. Walk in the footsteps of the Mayans in the pyramids of Tikal, shrouded in the Guatemalan jungle.
Your journey will continue to Colombia and Chile before heading to Peru where you'll stay amidst the world’s largest rainforest at the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, a luxury eco lodge reserved exclusively for Captain’s Choice guests. In Chile you can join a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Atacama desert and marvel at the gorgeously alien landscape, before enjoying a picnic breakfast.
Visit the abandoned village of Orongo on Easter Island, a collection of stone houses perched on the lip of the extinct Rano Kau volcanic caldera, and see the incredible moai stone statues before being welcomed by local elders with traditional singing and dancing at Explora Rapa Nui resort.
After arriving in Papeete, Tahiti, you'll be transferred to Moorea by catamaran - your home for the next two languid days where you'll stay in overwater bungalows at the Hilton Moorea, no less. The bungalows fan out across the lagoon, just off the beach, between Moorea’s two iconic bays. Arrival is timed for the magnificent Tahitian sunset, which you can enjoy from your own private sun deck. At the end of your relaxing stay, you'll fly by jet to Sydney where this incredible experience concludes.
