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.
With a network of offices in 26 countries and over 2,500 members of our own staff on the ground, we are in a unique position to ensure that every aspect is arranged with exacting precision for a stylish, seamless and safe journey. We pride ourselves on the quality of our guides, who will bring each step of your journey to life with their intimate knowledge of the local culture, history, geography and wildlife - not to mention their own network of contacts which enables them to introduce you to people and experiences you would otherwise miss. And our reputation, our contacts and our preferred partners status with many hotels and airlines means we are able to provide those little extra touches that can make a big difference.
Whether you are looking for a unique tailor-made trip, a relaxing beach holiday, a small group journey with like-minded travellers, or a private villa or chalet to rent, or even buy, we'll look after you every step of the way.
Throughout the entire process I have had the utmost confidence in Robin Spanner and, as a result, A & K. If the holiday is anything like the booking process, I am certain I will be in very capable hands and it will be the holiday of a lifetime.
