It all started with a simple ethos: adventure by day, luxury by night.
When the Kent family founded A&K in 1962, ‘luxury’ was keeping food fresh on safari. As Geoffrey Kent says: “I knew that the secret to making someone feel at home in the middle of nowhere was a hot dinner and a cold drink.” So, he introduced refrigerated safari trucks. This was the first in a six-decade-long line of innovations that has pushed A&K to the forefront of luxury travel.
Today, as we mark our 60th anniversary, A&K is a very different animal, with operations across more than one hundred countries on all seven continents.
