We know experiential travel. We’ve been living and breathing it for over half a century. Every holiday is special but we make it exceptional – whatever your reasons for leaving the country.

2019 is the year to make a difference. We want to elevate your trip to the spectacular and energise you to achieve more. Awesome inspiration is everywhere – if you know how and where to find it.

We have chosen authentic experiences from around the world to showcase just what an amazing planet we inhabit. 

Give back to the world and enrich your soul with a trip to Jordan and A&K Philanthropy’s Jordan Bike Enterprise, designed to combat rural unemployment. Protect the fauna of the world, perhaps monitoring the habitats of the rare quoll in South Australia, or elephant in Botswana. Understand the natural world by getting closer to it, tracking gorilla in Rwanda or wild west ranching in Montana.

Extend your skills with a challenge – sign up to cowboy college or stilt-fishing school. Walk the Great Wall of China or take a selfie from a helicopter hovering over Christ the Redeemer in Rio. Make your break premier with some experiences no one back home will have tried – whether that’s meeting rare Brazilian tribes, a personal work-out with LA’s trainers to the stars or even just soaking up some sun on the exclusive beaches of newly opening Joali in the Maldives. 

Our holidays match every occasion. Celebrate, conserve, cultivate or challenge yourself. 

Meet the locations, the people, the adventures, with us.

Experiences are everything

Make a difference

Make an enriching experience one that benefits the world. In South Australia's Flinders Ranges, take part in the ultimate conservation experience, or perhaps plant trees in Kenya's Masai Mara.

A&K Philanthropy supports projects all over the world including education and development in Peru at the Children of the Rainbow School.


Challenge yourself

Challenge yourself to find inner balance and calm in Sri Lanka with some stilt fishing, or take the ultimate climbing challenge up the Machame Route.

You could even get to know the area like the locals by plunging into their world. In Arizona's desert landscape, head into cowboy college to learn western style riding, lassoing and shoeing.


Marvel at the wonders of the world 

We want to help you see as many wonders in this world as you want. Take a shoe selfie with Rio’s iconic Christ the Redeemer from your chartered helicopter flight, or walk the lesser explored Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China as part of our Wonders of China escorted tour.


Be the first

Experiencing something no one else has or no one else will is a wonderful feeling. For barefoot luxury, visit the new retreat in the Maldives' Raa atoll, where the villas have infinity pools and personal butlers. 

Or connect with the wilderness with an authentic fly camping adventure in the African bush, and explore with your naturalist guide.


Be there, be seen

For people watching and being watched, we know all the best places to be. Take a helicopter ride over the Central Valley in Costa Rica, to see the conical Poas volcano and its bubbling lava.

Or visit Chile and dine with Almendra, an art lover and finalist from MasterChef Chile.


Tantalise your tastebuds

Get straight to the heart of a country when you embrace its culinary history. In Sorrento, visit lemon groves and cheesemakers, enjoy Provolone, Limoncello and the perfect pizza.

Further afield, enjoy street food in Old Delhi, tasting chicken stews, melt-in-the-mouth mutton korma and stuffed flatbreads. 


Make time for friends & family

Regrouping with family or relaxing with friends, we have options to suit everyone. For heavenly beach bar life, Sugar Beach in St Lucia’s is simply magical.

Alternatively, try something different and stay at The Ranch at Rock Creek, in 2,400 hectares of big country Montana.


Take a walk on the wild side

The world’s most epic animal adventures lie off-the-beaten track, up jungle mountains and into the wilderness. Spot infant and silverback gorilla in a small group of no more than eight travellers, or take the opportunity to experience Argentina’s Ibera wetlands, the second largest in the world and home to the gaucho.


Take time out… pure escapism

Time out is vital to our wellbeing. North Island is a paradise like no other that offers Jurassic-like beauty. There's no place for stress there. 

Or cleanse the soul as much as the body with the spiritual experience of Aarti, along the banks of the Ganga River at sunset. 


Take the scenic route

Travel is as much about the how as the where. Sometimes the best scenery can be seen by train, or by cruise ship. Maybe even by private jet or self-drive

In Peru, a five-day trek to Machu Picchu offers an opportunity to camp beneath the stars, approach ancient Andean scenery and delve into thick rainforest.


Try something new

There's never been a better time to try solo travel as our new escorted tours offer no single supplements for the first four solo places booked.

Or if you're looking for a new skill to master, look no further than Santa Teresa where you can learn to surf with a professional instructor.



A holiday itself is a cause for celebration but sometimes the celebration demands a holiday. We have a portfolio of wonderful villas which accommodate large groups of families and friends, otherwise we can help you join in with the largest celebrations on Earth. In New Delhi, you can take part in Diwali, the festival of lights, over five-days of copious feasts and ceremonial gift-giving.
