Far‑flung destinations in the traveller’s consciousness, perhaps, but surprisingly close on the map. Which is why Deborah Calmeyer, the Zimbabwe-born, New York-based founder of Roar Africa (roarafrica.com), had the bright idea to connect the two in a single trip (about $75,300 per person) – via a once‑in‑a-lifetime private-jet safari itinerary slated for November 2018. After landing in Kilimanjaro, guests spend a few days each in Tanzania’s Grumeti reserve, southern Zimbabwe’s Malilangwe, and Sabi Sands in South Africa, tracking big cats and packs of wild dog, before alighting in Cape Town for an overnight stay. Then it’s off on a five‑and‑a‑half-hour flight into the continuous daylight of the Antarctic – and three nights in the futuristic sleep pods of Whichaway Camp, set on the vast tundra at the base of the Wolf’s Fang Mountains.
