Ultimate South America by Private Jet
19 Jan 2018
Join Captain's Choice on this rare 22-day journey saved for a select few, experiencing both the wildest places on earth and the insatiable Latin American appetite for la vida.
Home to civilisations long gone, some of the wildest, most distant islands on earth, and awe-inspiring monuments - both natural and man-made. South America is a jumble of indigenous, African, Spanish, Portuguese and more recent immigrant cultures. But wherever you go, its people share one thing - an insatiable appetite for la vida.
Departing on 23 August 2018, your first private jet journey begins on a flight from Sydney to Buenos Aires. You'll have 3 nights in Buenos Aires to explore its elegant boulevards and become immersed in Argentinian country life with a visit to a grand estancia, where you’ll be treated to an exclusive polo match and lunch by Michelin-starred chef, Francis Mallmann.
Take in the once-in-a-lifetime vista of Iguassu Falls from the Brazilian side and savour a private lunch on a balcony with unrestricted views of the water. Fly over the falls in a helicopter or explore the base of the falls in a Macuco Safari Boat.
Enjoy a city tour of the sights that are quintessentially Rio in Rio de Janeiro where you'll visit Corcovado Mountain to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer up close, and the legendary beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. This is followed by a special gala dinner and Carnival-style samba show at Das Canoas House.
It's on to Cuba where you'll have three wonderful nights in the recently renovated Kempinski Manzana de Gómez. Wander the streets of Old Havana and admire the city's crumbling grandeur, stopping at the opulent Captain General’s Palace and some of Ernest Hemingway’s old haunts. Pay a visit to Plaza de la Revolución - the square from which Fidel Castro once regularly addressed Cubans and learn more about the revolutionary war of the 1950s at the Museum of the Revolution.
Discover the engineering wonder that is the Panama Canal on a private cruise and stroll the streets of the Old Quarter which will reveal a district undergoing a renaissance, where elegant old buildings, some restored, others still waiting to be, line cobblestone streets.
In Galápagos, board an expedition ship where you'll encounter an eclectic variety of wildlife on the Galápagos Islands and travel aboard the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham train to the astonishing Machu Picchu - it truly has to be seen to be believed!
See the incredible moai stone statues on Easter Island before being welcomed by local elders with traditional singing and dancing at Explora Rapa Nui resort. From Easter Island, you'll return by jet to Sydney with lifelong memories and unique experiences you'll treasure for life.
