Southern Exposure: Abercrombie & Kent Announces Cuba & South America by Private Jet
Geoffrey Kent to join guests for an exclusive people-to-people exchange in Cuba
Travellers who have circled the globe in search of the next "must-see" destinations will encounter a wealth of wonders closer to home. Abercrombie & Kent's Cuba & South America by Private Jet with Special Guest Geoffrey Kent (September 6-28, 2016) takes guests south from Miami on a 23-day odyssey around a continent to discover the vibrant cultures of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, the mysteries of Machu Picchu and Easter Island, the stunning natural wonders of Torres del Paine, Iguazu Falls and the Pantanal - and is the first Private Jet journey to include a people-to-people program in Cuba.
Over 700 Bikes Donated to Change Lives in Zambia
This April, Abercrombie & Kent teamed up with Wheels of Change to ask Chicago-area residents to help fill a shipping container with donated bikes and equipment for Nakatindi village in Zambia. Staff from A&K Zambia will supervise the distribution of the bikes to healthcare workers and students, enabling them to attend the nearest secondary school seven miles away. The shipping container will be also converted into a bike shop, creating jobs for the community.
A&K established a bold goal for the AKP Bike Donation program: to collect 360 bikes. Thanks to the hard work and efforts of A&K staff, family and friends, they were able to not only reach the goal, but double it. Because of this, the AKP Board chose to make a special allocation for a second shipment, and A&K will now be sending two containers - 700 bikes - to Zambia, where they can impact twice as many lives.
