LUXURY PRIVATE JET TOURS Small Groups • Short Trips • Incredible Value

2020 A Compendium of Explorations & Cultural Connections.


Dear Travel Friends, It is with great pleasure that we introduce a collection of Private Jet Journeys for 2020. This condensed brochure gives you an opportunity to see what we are offering and allows you plenty of time to schedule in the itinerary of your choice. Each journey has been designed to fall within 15-17 days, which we have learned is the optimum travel time for travelers. Destinations have been selected to take advantage of traveling by private jet, with unusual or less often visited locations that would take much more flight time if one were to use the regularly scheduled planes. A good mix of cultural, natural, and historical attractions are included on each trip to suit a variety of interests. Exclusive, luxury accommodations in suites have been arranged throughout. And, of course, you have the added benefit of traveling with a Lakani Expert all along the way. Whether you choose one of the European or African itineraries, or the October world trip, you will find the same exceptional service and allinclusiveness. The Lakani Dine by Choice program allows you flexibility in your culinary experiences. Lakani’s signature Luggage One-Touch means you’ll not need to worry about handling your bags from the time you join the private jet through to the end of the journey. Review the pages ahead and let us know your choice as quickly as possible. With a maximum of 15-18 guests per journey, you will want to make sure to reserve your spot to avoid disappointment. We look forward to welcoming you on one or more of these extraordinary journeys. With best traveling wishes, Heidi Lakani


Experience the Lakani Difference Effortless Travel Between Destinations On A Private Jet

Sink into luxury in your leather club seat on your posh VIP Private Jet. The jet which usually seats more than 40 passengers, is custom-fitted for a maximum of 15 travelers. Your hand-picked cabin crew anticipates all your in-flight needs, while serving first class cuisine with fine wines and champagne. Experience arrivals like royalty, often at private terminals where customs and immigration formalities happen before you realize it.

Intimate Group Size For Exclusive Cultural Encounters

Lakani learned a long time ago the value of traveling in small groups (15 – 18 travelers). It makes it possible to stay in boutique hotels/ lodges and allows suites accommodations for all. Become immersed in the sights in your window seat on your small luxury vehicle. And you’ll be totally spoiled with such a small group with whom to share your guide and tour manager. You’ll enjoy private parties, exclusive cultural encounters, and behind the scenes experiences.

Luxuriate In Sumptuous Suites

Luxuriate in sumptuous suites in hotels and lodges chosen for their proximity to wildlife, historic treasures, and cultural attractions. Delight in the special features of each place, whether it is private plunge pools, spectacular sea views, gastronomic specialties, or unrivaled service. You can be sure that you will be comfortable, secure, and will have an extraordinary experience.


Dine By Choice – Your Way

One of the pleasures of traveling is the freedom to sample culinary specialties of each region. Sometimes you just want to sit in a charming bistro, or you may wish to experience fine dining in a local restaurant, or perhaps enjoy your meal in the comfort and privacy of your room. We designed our Dine by Choice program with all those freedoms in mind – so that you can enjoy your trip in your own way.

Dedicated “Concierge” At Your Service

Consider your Lakani Tour Manager your concierge, who will take care of your every need all along the way. From restaurant reservations to finding that special gift, your concierge is on hand to help you. With decades of experience leading private jet trips, the Lakani Tour Managers are experts at making sure that you get the most out of your vacation.

Luggage One-Touch – Hassle Free Luggage Throughout

Imagine not having to worry about your luggage from the time you join the tour until the day you say goodbye to your newfound friends. Lakani is aware of the hassle of taking care of your luggage, and you can rest assured that your belongings will be safely handled and delivered directly to your room without you having to lift a finger, leaving you to enjoy the journey.
