A&K Voted Africa’s Leading Luxury Tour Operator at World Travel Awards

Honored For the Fourth Consecutive Year

Abercrombie & Kent was voted “Africa’s Leading Luxury Tour Operator” by travel professionals representing more than 200 different countries at the World Travel Awards, for the fourth consecutive year. Considered “the Oscars of the travel industry” by the Wall Street Journal, winners are judged on their ability to satisfy visitor needs; undertake enterprising product expansion and development; foster innovation and creativity; and consistently deliver a superior product.

“With the dramatic changes sweeping the travel industry, it is an honour to be singled out for our uncompromising standards, high level of personal service and attention to detail,” said Geoffrey Kent, founder, chairman and CEO of Abercrombie & Kent. “Travel Agents recognize the difference that our offices across Africa make in guaranteeing the quality of their client experience and they appreciate the peace of mindthat comes from having everything professionally pre–arranged and reserved, with an English–speaking guide meeting guests at each ship, train or plane.”

The World Travel Awards celebrate their 20th Anniversary this year and are acknowledged around the globe as the ultimate travel accolade, celebrating those companies, organisations and brands that are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence in product and service.

Graham E. Cooke, president and founder of the World Travel Awards, said: “We are proud to have held these awards in Nairobi after recent events, to not only show support for the Kenya Tourism Board but Africa as a premier tourist destination that creates jobs and drives a significant part of each country’s GDP. Africa is a very competitive region for the World Travel Awards, and these winners continue to serve as an example of the most luxurious and innovative brands with unique hospitality products and services. Tonight’s recipients strive to set the highest possible bar to raise the standards of excellence in travel and tourism and it has been an honour to hold our ceremony here in Kenya, regarded as one of the most beautiful countries in the world.”
