Beyonce one-ups Kim Kardashian, takes family in private jumbo jet to Africa for a charity event
Beyonce, Jay-Z and their three kids arrived in South Africa to attend the Nelson Mandela Global Citzen festival
Queen Bey travels in style and how! The iconic pop star seems to have one-upped Kim Kardashian in the private plane department as she arrived in South Africa in a jumbo jet with her husband and three kids; the plane can reportedly accommodate 200 people.
Daily Mail reports the family is in Johannesburg for the Nelson Mandela Global Citizen festival charity concert which will take place on Sunday. Her extravagant arrival in a private jet comes around a week after Kim filmed her husband's private 747 calling it a floating Yeezy office. She shared the lavish interiors with her fans on social media but faced backlash for being 'ostentatious' and 'obnoxious.' Beyonce and Kim were once friends but in recent years seem to have drifted apart because of apparent tension between their husbands.
The 'Drunk In Love' singer was photographed at the airport in a crop top and matching skirt as she looked ready for the warm weather. An eyewitness spoke about Beyonce's arrival and the general atmosphere of the airport when she reached," She was in a great mood and smiled at her fans then waved, revealed the eyewitness. "She had a very warm energy to her. Beyonce was holding on to one of her twins - she was a doting mother and kept looking at her child. Blue Ivy followed and was seen holding hands with a little girl. She seemed very happy to be out of the airplane."

The eyewitness continued, "There was a buzz in the airport it was Bey and Jay so people looked. They waited 45 minutes in the plane while their team dealt with their customs. Jay carried the other twin and he looked so happy, he was very protective of his child. He was seen on the tarmac." The couple has three kids together, Blue, aged six, as well as twins Rumi and Sir, aged one.
The family was surrounded by police and an entourage. The eyewitness said "When they came out they had like 20 people with them including her mother. They all looked to be in good spirits. I am sure they had a nice rest as their plane likely has beds in it. The plane was massive with enough room for about 200 people. Very spacious. It was a very Hollywood arrival for them. They had a full police escort, which was unusual, but they are just about the biggest stars in the world so it makes sense."
