Abercrombie & Kent Named "World's Best" by Professional Travel Advisors
A&K was voted "World's Best Luxury Tour Operator" and "Best Africa Tour Operator" by travel agents at the Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards in New York. This is the twelfth year in a row that A&K has been honoured with these awards.
"To be acknowledged as the world's best by America's top travel professionals is truly an honor and proof of the commitment we have as a company to supporting travel agents," said Phil Otterson, president of Abercrombie & Kent USA, LLC. "They recognize that A&K's network of local offices enables us to set a higher standard and consistently deliver inspiring experiences."
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.
