Abercrombie and Kent was founded in 1962 by Geoffrey Kent when he set off for the Kenya's bush country in a Land Rover adapted with refrigeration and his mother's silver ice bucket, setting the tone for every A&K journey that followed. Today, over fifty years on from that first safari in East Africa, you can experience the A&K difference more than 100 countries on all seven continents. Geoffrey still actively leads our company and is constantly seeking out new travel experiences for you to enjoy.

A&K Myanmar Relief Fund
AKP's global reach and on-the-ground presence proved to be priceless assets when, in May 2008, Cyclone Nargis devastated Myanmar's Irrawaddy Delta. Our office and teams in Myanmar quickly gathered and delivered essential supplies to affected villages, raising more than $540,000 in contributions for emergency aid. The A&K Myanmar Relief Fund provides support for orphanages and other ongoing needs resulting from the tremendous devastation of Cyclone Nargis.
