Abercrombie & Kent - Supporting Earth Hour

Earth Hour was started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as a means of creating awareness of a wide range of environmental issues, not least climate control. In 2013, more than 7000 cities and towns in over 150 countries took part in this initiative, believed to be the world's largest campaign for the planet.

Earth Hour is now a global initiative, bringing individuals, companies, cities and countries together in their commitment to protecting the planet. Turning off all non-essential lights for one hour is a way of showing support for this initiative, but more than that, it's demonstrating that small, seemingly insignificant every day actions from lots of people can make a real difference. 

A&K are supporting Earth Hour around the globe - from urging local government officials to turn off the lights at iconic buildings and landmarks (we've managed to get the lights turned off at the Sphinx and Great Pyramids of Giza in the past!), to turning off all but emergency lighting in camps and lodges throughout Africa: instead offering clients bush dinner by candlelight and lanterns. Individual members of staff have pledged their commitment to earth hour and will be trading in lights for candles on Saturday evening. Join us in supporting Earth Hour - together we can make change happen. For more information visit the Earth Hour website


Guest Testimonial

Amos, our driver from Thousand Hills - I can't sing his praises enough. He arrived bang on time, was very amiable and friendly the whole journey, and was very accommodating to my every need and request.
