Africa is often associated with safari - for which Abercrombie & Kent has unrivalled credentials and expertise. Yet the immense expanse of the African continent and its complement of paradise islands offers a great deal more besides.

With offices throughout Africa and our own people on the ground, A&K's knowledge and experience in African holidays and Safaris is unsurpassed.

People return from Kenya full of admiration for the friendly people, colourful tribes and unbeatable game viewing - notably the spectacular annual migration of wildebeest and zebra between the Serengeti to the Mara. The 'Big Five', the high point of many a safari, are resident in higher concentrations here than perhaps anywhere else. Safaris in Tanzania are also amongst the most celebrated in the world. There is simply so much wildlife in the country's many national parks, which include the Serengeti, famed for the annual migration of prolific amounts of game, and the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which cocoons an array of wildlife that roams the crater floor.

South Africa, with its melting pot of cultures, easy-going atmosphere, sophisticated lodges, superb wines and cuisine, wonderful scenery and excellent safari is arguably the most all-encompassing destination in the world. The Western Cape vineyards carpet the rolling landscapes of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch, and the celebrated Garden Route follows Africa's southern coast along windswept cliffs, sandy bays, sheltered forests and mountains - perfect for nature lovers.

If you subscribe to the belief that the world has become all too familiar, then consider Namibia and prepare to be amazed by its rugged coastline and ever-changing colours; or the island of Madagascar, renowned for its rich flora, fauna and golden sands. Further north, Ethiopia's rich religious history, archaeological treasures, unspoiled mountain scenery and desert valleys make it one of Africa's most fascinating countries.

Zanzibar, with its fascinating Arabic roots, superb diving and stunning white beaches is the perfect complement a safari or a destination in its own right - as is fashionable Mozambique whilst a tropical paradise awaits in the islands of the Indian Ocean.

Whatever you want from your journey to this region of extreme beauty, intense soul and heart-stopping contrasts - whether its cultural insight, pure relaxation, gourmet cuisine, wildlife or adventure - or a combination of everything - our Africa and Indian Ocean specialists will create an itinerary that delivers exactly what you want.

At A&K all of our African Safaris & Holidays 2015, 2016 are individually tailored to suit your needs and timescale. However, as a guide, a 8 day safari in Africa will cost from £3,480 per person based on two adults sharing with flights from the UK and subject to availability.
