Safari: A Memoir of a Worldwide Travel Pioneer - Available in Bookstores Now
"This book is more than a collection of the best tales that I've experienced along the path: this book is my love story. I pioneered adventure and experiential travel...but my own greatest adventure has been this business itself."
- Geoffrey Kent, Founder, Chairman & CEO, Abercrombie & Kent
|In this breathtaking travel memoir and adventure guide, Geoffrey Kent, the founder of Abercrombie & Kent, takes readers on a whirlwind tour around the globe, sharing his best-kept secrets and the stories that inspired his success.
In 1962, Geoffrey Kent had nothing but a Kenyan shilling and an old Land Rover when he outfitted his first safari in Nairobi. Today, he is the chairman and CEO of Abercrombie & Kent, dedicated to providing unique, stylish luxury travel to the planet's wildest frontiers, for an exclusive clientele that includes Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Ralph Lauren, and DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Described as an "Indiana Jones meets James Bond" entrepreneur, he helped define experiential travel by bringing the same sense of adventure found on safari to destinations around the world.
His life reads like a work of fiction, growing up barefoot in the African bush, riding his motorcycle across the continent, and ultimately becoming the most sought-after travel professional in the world. Safari: A Memoir of a Worldwide Travel Pioneer is a breathtaking and exhilarating trip to some of the most exotic and stunning locations on earth. Beginning in Africa and ultimately spanning the globe, it is packed with sometimes harrowing and always entertaining memories from Kent's life and career, revealing fascinating tales from his travels with business leaders and celebrities. The book is also filled with insider travel tips and award-winning photography. In addition, Kent provides an inspiring bucket list of must-see sites, so that every class of voyager and even armchair travelers can experience the wonders of the world.
