Book your front-row seat to the world’s premier events in 2020 with Abercrombie & Kent

“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”– Robert Herrick’s inspiring poetic line is simple and instructive: there is no time like the present.

Once-in-a-lifetime phenomena, natural wonders and royal festivals are lined up ready to thrill in 2020. A&K, the world’s leading luxury tour operator, is best placed to usher you into position. Read on to discover the top five events to book now.

The Great Migration, Tanzania

The Great Migration sees millions of wildebeest, zebra and other grazing animals sweep majestically across the Serengeti in Tanzania towards the Masai Mara in Kenya – and back again. This dramatic, annual spectacle is an incomparable opportunity to witness the circle of life unfold on the plains of Africa. A&K recommends heading to Tanzania early in 2020 for calving season – though key moments throughout the migration offer other fantastic reasons to visit. A&K’s 13-night escorted tour itinerary includes a resident tour director, English-speaking local guides and a maximum group size of 18. Reserve your place now and anticipate a life-changing adventure.

Cherry blossom, Japan

With everything from geisha to snow monkey and bullet trains to sumo wrestlers, a luxury holiday to Japan promises to be captivating. One of Japan’s most awe-inspiring sights is when the country’s cherry blossom (sakura) trees come into bloom. The confetti-like display usually blooms between March and May. A&K curates timely, picture-perfect, tailor-made holidays to Japan.  To secure the best accommodation and guides, you’ll need to book early.

Solar eclipse, Argentina

On 14 December 2020, a total solar eclipse will take place, visible from just a few South American countries. In Argentina, the event will briefly plunge Northern Patagonia into darkness in the middle of the afternoon. Be among the few to witness this rare, magical moment in a region already famed for its spectacular scenery by reserving a place on A&K’s luxury six night itinerary. It’s your opportunity to experience this astronomical spectacle in consummate style.

Bear watching, Canada

In the vast forests of British Columbia lives one of the highest concentrations of grizzly bear in the world. The best time to go is undoubtedly autumn, when the salmon-rich rivers draw grizzlies out into the open. Be amongst the privileged few to experience a sense-heightening bear-watching trip to British Colombia. As this is prime bear-watching territory, stand-out lodges get booked up well in advance, so book now for 2020. Look no further than one of the world’s most respected tour operators; A&K will shape the perfect itinerary, just for you.

The Braemar Gathering, Scotland

The esteemed Braemer Gathering, with the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II, is the best Highland games in the world. Dating back 900 years, the event takes place on the first Saturday of September every year. With A&K, you’ll watch the athletes from a private pavilion, with a chance to see the Queen, who regularly attends the games. Once the festivities are over, explore the Glens with an expert or go foraging for your lunch. As a guest with A&K, you’ll stay at the Fife Arms – a Braemar landmark steeped in Highland tradition. Here you’ll enjoy a warm welcome, five-star service and 14,000 pieces of art, from a Picasso to a watercolour by Queen Victoria. A&K’s luxury Braemar Gathering experience has limited spaces, so book early.
