Abercrombie & Kent – pioneering luxury travel since 1962

In 1962, Geoffrey Kent founded Abercrombie & Kent in Kenya with nothing more than a game-changing idea of how people should safari, a refrigerated ex-Army truck, and the best tents money could buy. He pioneered a new way to travel, one that combines authentic local access with five-star style, and unparalleled expertise. More than 55 years later, A&K has grown into a global luxury travel company made up of over 2,500 travel specialists, located in more than 55 offices, in over 30 countries – all delivering A&K’s hallmark blend of excitement, authenticity and luxury.

Escorted Tours

India, Agra

A&K’s escorted tours reflect a nearly 60-year-old ethos of excellence. The tours illuminate the world’s most inspiring places in a style in which you have always longed to experience them. Their escorted tours place you at the heart of a small group of people as passionate about travel as you are, for a luxurious, authentic journey around your chosen destination. A&K offers two types of escorted tour: in-depth Immersive Journeys, on which early-booking solo travellers pay no single supplement; and faster-paced Luxury Small Group Journeys, which feature the VIP Travelling Bellboy® and Traveller’s Valet® services. No matter which you opt for, you’ll tailor your journey to your interests with the Design your Day® concept; a resident tour director will imbue each visit with his or her unique perspective; and a handpicked luxury hotel, wilderness lodge, or sanctuary-like river boat will provide a comfortable retreat at the end of the day.

Luxury Expedition Cruises

A&K’s Luxury Expedition Cruises combine authentic adventure with unparalleled experience and expertise. Backed by some 30 years of cruising experience, every all-inclusive cruise is steeped in A&K know-how and set aboard an exclusively chartered ultra-luxe vessel. From the snow-bound wildernesses of Antarctica and the Arctic, to culturally rich Japan, Italy, and Greece, voyage with an unmatched on-board, award-winning expedition team who’ll bring your cruise to life in an authentic and meaningful way.

For many of us, there’s simply no better way to escape the pressures of modern life than jetting off to some far-away sandy shore. The sea lapping at your feet, the soft sand between your toes and the sunshine overhead: it’s a formula guaranteed to make you smile. A&K ensures that that formula includes some luxurious extras. Their beach holidays to the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean place you at the most gorgeous resorts just a coconut-kick from the sea. For somewhere closer to home, choose A&K’s exquisite coastal retreats in Europe, from Algarve gems to Cretan idylls.
