National Geographics Private Jet Expeditions bring you to the world’s most fascinating and far-flung places, but what makes each one truly extraordinary is the team of National Geographic experts on board and the researchers and grantees they meet in the field.
National Geographics experts are involved in these expeditions long before they depart, helping to craft the itineraries and providing input on not-to-be-missed sites and experiences, whether it’s encountering Myanmar’s Intha people with renowned anthropologist Carroll Dunham on Asia by Private Jet, or photographing the mysterious moai statues of Easter Island alongside Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Jay Dickman on Around the World by Private Jet. The grantees they meet along the way, such as paleontologist Louise Leakey and archaeologist Peter Frost, bring the wonders of the world to life with their insights and tales of discovery. Best of all, when you travel with National Geographic, they help to support the work of these explorers, who benefit from the proceeds from the adventure long after the trip is over.
