Cape Town to Addis Ababa by privately chartered aircraft and the world famous Blue Train

From the beasts of the wild plains and grassy savannah to the roar of Victoria Falls. From the manicured vineyards of Cape Town to the spice fuelled hues of Zanzibar and mystery of Ethiopia. Once in your heart, Africa never lets go.

Highlights include:

  • Travel aboard the world famous Blue Train
  • All internal flights are aboard our privately chartered ATR42 aircraft with seats for 40 guests
  • Accommodation in centrally located 5 star hotels and comfortable game lodges
  • A La Carte options for your choice of sightseeing (additional costs will apply to scenic flight over Victoria Falls and Balloon Safari in the Serengeti)
  • Reach for the clouds as the cable car lifts you upward for extraordinary views across the city from Cape Town’s iconic Table Mountain
  • Stay in Chobe Game Lodge, the only lodge actually inside Chobe National Park
  • Discover the gentle giant of Africa with an up close elephant experience.
  • Settle into the brand new Melia Serengeti game lodge and experience Big 5 Serengeti wildlife encounters.
  • As day turns to night find yourself aboard a dhow, an East African sailing vessel. We glide onto a private beach for a special beach barbeque dinner.
  • Visit HLalibela to witness some of the eleven monolithic cave churches, dating back to the 13th century.

An African adventure like no other!

Join Constellation Journeys on an African adventure like no other. Skip the queues and indirect flight routes and step aboard our private aircraft, an exclusively chartered twin-engine turboprop ATR42. With seats for 40 guests and high wings for optimal viewing, our aircraft is large enough to comfortably traverse the vast distances of the African continent but small enough to land us right into the heart of game viewing country.

Your journey also includes two nights on the enviable Blue Train – one of the world’s most luxurious trains – with private suites and fine dining. But the best bit? The Blue Train is chartered solely for our use.

If you are looking for an African experience that eclipses all others it is this journey from Cape Town to Addis Ababa.
