INFORMATION ABOUT TANZANIA
Tanzania offers some extraordinary spectacles. Truly extraordinary. Vast skies over widescreen plains, teeming mass migrations and A&K's chefs baking fresh loaves each day in the middle of the bush. Trust us, the bread - served warm from traditional ground ovens dug on our mobile tented safaris - will be the tastiest of your life.
It's not our only gourmet flourish in the African wilderness. While other visitors to the Ngorongoro Crater ate packed lunches in a designated picnic area, our returning guests were delighted to report how they drove straight past and on into a shady glade. Waiting for them amongst the foliage was a white-clothed table, laid with cutlery, glassware and flowers, next to chefs cooking up a storm on a mobile stove.
Of course, take an Abercrombie & Kent safari to Tanzania and you'll find our guides - selected for specialities from families to birdwatchers to first-time visitors - posses an encyclopaedic knowledge of wildlife. Another guest told us how her group had mentioned they'd like to see black rhino. Towards dusk, their guide, Joel - a quarter of a century with A&K - drove away from other groups towards an apparently barren stretch of land. They parked, sipped a drink, and, ten minutes later, witnessed two black rhino munching their way to within 20 yards of the vehicle. Competitors' guests rolled up just as the spectacle ended with the two animals vanishing into the forest. Too late: this had been an A&K exclusive matinee.

My wife, Cindy, and I travelled with A&K this September. Saying that we were “very satisfied” would be an understatement. I did not feel that the survey I received provided a way for me to say how satisfied we are and to commend some individuals … hence, this email.

Beekeeping in Mwika Village
Generates income for local families from the sale of honey. It also helps conserve forest resources; bees need a healthy environment to produce honey.
Spring escapes with Abercrombie & Kent
The notion of a peak season is usually a function of weather and school holidays, often meaning an increase in hotel rates and airfares. However, at A&K we are big fans of the so-called 'shoulder' season. Here are a few great reasons to get packing this Spring.
