Wish you were still here...The $1m holiday for wealthy philanthropists that showcases the world's most endangered animals
The trip would see affluent travellers visit 12 separate locations including the Antarctic Peninsula, the Galapagos Islands and the Pantanal Wetlands
Are you a wealthy philanthropist with an interest in protecting endangered animals and $1m to spend on a holiday?
If the answer is yes, then a new globe-trotting adventure holiday designed to showcase 18 of the most vulnerable species of animal at 12 different locations across the planet, may be just the ticket.
The holiday, which was designed by Natural World Safaris, is billed as a "once in a lifetime adventure concept".
The trip, which lasts three months would see affluent travellers visit 12 separate locations including the Antarctic Peninsula, the Galapagos Islands and the Pantanal Wetlands in Brazil.
During the holiday the animal-loving millionaires will encounter, among other creatures, African wild dogs in Botswana, black rhino in Namibia, penguins in Antarctica, Bengal tigers in India and the giant tortoise of the Galapagos Islands.
During the trip travellers will see conservation projects for each species in action. The company also plans to donate a portion of the cost of travel to each conservation project visited.
Though the holiday may be worthy the wealthy travellers are hardly going to be slumming it with regards to accommodation.
In Antarctica, for instance, after their private charter flight they will be staying on the top of a 200ft ice cliff, in a luxury tented camp, as they explore the 6,000 strong colony of emperor penguins.
In Rwanda visitors will be staying in a luxury eco-lodge overlooking the Virunga Volcanoes as they track mountain gorillas, visit Dian Fossey's grave and spot golden monkeys.
