WWF Earth Hour brings together millions of people in a call to action on climate change, by simply switching off their lights for one hour on a Saturday evening each March.
Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia with 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses. In just 3 years, this grew to a record 128 countries in a global display in which iconic buildings across Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas descended into darkness.
Earth Hour is organised by WWF, one of the world's leading independent conservation organisations. Their mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth's natural environment.
Last year, our camps throughout Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda and Botswana held candlelight dinners, and staff from our Australia office took part in the Future Spark event to generate electricity to power the Earth Hour concert.
Show your support for Earth Hour 2011 and join one billion people around the world who will be switching off their lights for one hour on Saturday 26 March from 8:30pm (local time).
The service provided is excellent. It is the most enjoyable experience and most the memorable holidays, we have had, have been when we have travelled with A&K.

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.
