DAY 1 & 2: LAS VEGAS
Days 13 & 14: Colombo
Spend just a few short hours on the plane (with a gourmet lunch onboard) before touching down in Sri Lanka at midday. Colombo, the capital and jewel of the former British Empire, is ready for you to discover – from its colorful markets to the colonial buildings of the famous fort district.
The next day will be devoted to the city of Kandy. You will arrive by helicopter and depart by road (or vice versa), which will give you the chance to appreciate the beautiful landscape of rolling green hills. Your stay on the sapphire island will include a visit to one of the tea estates, where, of course, you will have the chance to sample their fine teas. You will also visit the temple of the Relic of the Tooth of Buddha, one of Buddhism’s most sacred places. The majesty of nature and the sacred atmosphere of this endearing country with its peaceful inhabitants make Sri Lanka a pleasant and intriguing destination. And, as for the grand finale of this leg of your Sri Lankan journey, well, we’re saving that for a surprise!
• Overnight stay in Kandy with a tour of the region
Days 15 & 16: Ngorongoro & Kilimanjaro
Now you head west to Africa, where you will have the pleasure of visiting another continent. Kilimanjaro watches proudly as we land, and now it’s time to cross the Savannah, with its acacias and imposing baobab trees. The pure air is a promise that the sunset will be splendid.
The next day, you awake to an authentic African scene. When you open the curtains and listen to the silence, you can imagine the animals off in the distance, and you know this will be an unforgettable day, for today you will experience a wildlife safari in the Ngorongoro crater. Out in the middle of nature, we will surprise you with a unique and unexpected picnic. Back at the lodge, you will have the chance to relive the day by looking at your own photos and, over dinner, sharing those taken by others, which will only add to the beauty of the starry night.
Note: If you are traveling ‘La Première’, your safari will be aerial and free-ranging. Because we will be visiting Ngorongoro and the Serengeti at just the right time, you will have a very good chance of seeing the amazing spectacle of the seasonal migration.
Days 17 & 18: Addis Ababa
Your 16th day of your adventure will take you to Ethiopia. A couple of hours on the plane and you are in Addis Ababa, where you will tour the city and the former palace of the Negus, which is now home to an ethnological museum.
The next day, a short trip south of the capital will take you far back in time as you visit ancient Melka Kunture and Tiya. Both of these are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, for they preserve the traces of the origins of humanity. You will also have the chance to visit Adadi Mariam, a monolithic church carved into the rock in the thirteenth century, in the style of the famous churches of Lalibela. In the evening, you will take part in a celebration featuring dance and traditional Ethiopian cuisine.
Days 19 – 21: Jerusalem
Aboard your private jet, you will travel from Ethiopia to Israel – the Holy Land. You will stay in the beautiful Jerusalem – a city that is at the heart of both history and modernity. At the Tower of David, you will attend a sound and light show that retraces the millennial history of this city. The next day, you will explore the Old City of Jerusalem, the crossroads of the Abrahamic religions. After a moment of meditation at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the culminating point of the Via Dolorosa, you will enter the Armenian Quarter, which leads to the Jewish Quarta, from the Cardo to the Wailing Wall. Of course you will also have a breathtaking view of the golden dome of the Al Aqsa Mosque and Temple Mount and an even more expansive panorama awaits you at the top of the Mount of Olives.
Could there be a more beautiful homage to the wonders of the world than this living, dazzling and very moving destination? From these emotional heights, we will join together to celebrate the final moments of this wonderful World Tour, with one last unforgettable gala dinner in a magical setting.
