Our current awards
During the pandemic, we have been hailed by Which? as a company that looks after your interests, even in difficult times. We are among a handful of tour operators given the ‘green light’ by the consumer champion on its Holiday Checker tool, a designation exclusively reserved for companies with which ‘your money is safe, refunds are processed quickly and in full, and you have freedom to change your booking for almost any reason – often close to your departure date.
We are also delighted to have won World's Leading Luxury Safari Company for the 4th time in 2021 and World's Leading Villa Collection 2021 for A&K Villas in the World Travel Awards. We were also winners for the Sophisticate category in OutThere magazine’s Experientialist Awards 20/21.
In 2019 we were also voted Africa’s Leading Luxury Tour Operator at the World Travel Awards for the tenth consecutive year. The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence in the tourism industry. Today, these awards are recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which hospitality companies aspire.
A&K were named best luxury tour operator at the 2018 News UK Travel Awards. It’s the third time we’ve received this accolade, voted for by the readers of The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. We're delighted to receive such positive feedback from the public – many thanks to those who voted for us again this year.
As the first-ever best tour operator winner of the Luxury Lifestyle Magazine Readers’ Travel Awards 2018, we’re grateful to everyone who voted for us. Awards like these inspire us to continue delivering exceptional tailor-made holidays, and to create new and exciting travel opportunities for our clients.
We were also awarded the best small luxury tour operator (The Telegraph ULTRAS 2016) and selected as the Condé Nast Traveller readers' choice award winner in 2015.
