INFORMATION ABOUT KENYA

How about this for the ultimate sundowner? We heard about it from two guests, recently returned from Kenya's Mara North Conservancy. Their game drive ended on an isolated hill with a poetry-inducing 360-degree panorama. As the setting sun stained the vast wilderness blood red, their guide handed them Masai blankets, traditional weapons and an iced G&T with freshly cut lime. For a perfect crescendo, they spotted a huge leopard as they drove back to camp, following it for twenty minutes without another human in sight.

In Kenya, of course, we offer more than superlative sundowners. A lot more. This is our heartland, where A&K was born over half a century ago, and nobody understands the country like we do. It's the core of our East Africa operation: a one stop shop offering seamless regional travel with 400 experienced staff, many of them multi-lingual - including superb guides with specialities from bird watchers to first-time safari-goers - 24-hour emergency contact, and the continent's best vehicle fleet.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent Kenya holiday and we'll give you a vintage taste of glorious nature with a Hemmingway-style mobile camping safari. We've finessed the art for several decades so you enjoy hot showers, flushing loos and 'tent butlers', all in fabulous game viewing locations. And don't forget the bread; our chefs bake it fresh each day in traditional ground ovens. You're under canvas but you're certainly not roughing it.

We'll show you a country whose prolific wildlife comes with snow-capped peaks and wide savannah punctuated by volcanoes, rounded off with palm-fringed Indian Ocean beaches. There are the Masai Mara's grassy plains, alive with lion, leopard and cheetah, and staggeringly impressive annual migrations; Lewa Downs, a conservation success story for endangered species; and Amboseli, where herds of elephant roam beneath Kilimanjaro's photogenic slopes.

Head to the centre for the drama of the Rift Valley, overlooked by the Laikipia Plateau, one of the black rhino's final refuges; there are vividly coloured crater lakes frescoed with pink flamingo, while further north the arid lowlands of the Samburu Reserve provide the stage for safaris on foot or camel. If you can't find a perfect sundowner spot in Kenya, we'd be very surprised.

Guest Testimonial

Dear Graeme,
A huge thank you for a truly wonderful holiday. Thank you for all your hard work leading up to and during our stay in Kenya. You have been really great throughout. The A&K experience exceeded our expectations and we felt very relaxed and comfortable knowing that we were in good hands. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and were so good with the kids - it made our holiday truly memorable. A special mention to Patricia who met us in Nairobi both ends and Duncan who took such good care of us at the mobile camp.
Thank you for the gifts - the children loved the catapult! Well actually Eric loved the catapult the kids haven't had a change to play with it yet!!
As Eric said on the phone - good news - we loved the holiday - bad news (for him) - I will be in touch to discuss another trip for next year!! I hope you and all the team at A&K have a great Christmas and a very festive New Year!
Kind regards, Arabella, Eric, Jake and Tate
