Abercrombie & Kent to Resume Small Group Travel in Africa and the Middle East
New Small Group Journeys Digital Brochure Provides Inspiration for Travel in 2021
October 07, 2020
Abercrombie & Kent will resume operating small group journeys in Africa with a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro beginning this week. This is where founder Geoffrey Kent first dreamed of a life filled with thrilling adventures by day…and luxuries at night. This will be followed by other 2020 bucket list journeys including the Great Migration Safari in Style and Egypt & the Nile.
“After months spent at home, travellers are ready to get away but are asking ‘where can we go that is safe?’” says Abercrombie & Kent founder Geoffrey Kent. “Our guests are looking for places that offer wide open spaces and lend themselves to physical distancing, or the novelty of exploring a completely new destination, knowing they’re safe in the A&K cocoon.”
To inspire travellers to dream about where to go next, Abercrombie & Kent has just released a digital Small Group Journeys brochure featuring day-by-day itineraries for 49 Luxury Small Group Journeys, Luxury Family Journeys and Marco Polo Journeys.
Not only are East Africa and Egypt amongst the first international destinations people are returning to, but A&K is seeing that interest continue into 2021, as well as Botswana, Southern Africa, Morocco, Jordan & Israel, Alaska and the Galapagos Islands.
“This is Africa’s moment,” says Kent. “Safaris are a natural fit as we begin travelling again, featuring small boutique camps with plenty of space and privacy. Plus, tourism plays an important role in protecting endangered wildlife, not only by keeping poachers at bay, but also bringing much-needed funding to local conservation projects.”
Peace of Mind When Booking & Travelling
A&K’s small-group journeys are well-suited to travel with physical distancing already in place: transfers are private, vehicles are never more than half full, group size averages just 14 guests and are led from start to finish with a Resident Tour Director. With more than 55 offices around the world, A&K’s local presence offers 24/7 support to handle the unexpected. They fully vet each partner, including restaurants, hotels, boats, transportation providers and venues, and work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure they know A&K’s exacting standards. A&K has established enhanced health and safety protocols that meet or exceed the latest global health and safety protocols recommended by “Safe Travels” from the World Travel & Tourism Council and “TourCare” from the United States Tour Operators Association, Canadian Association of Tour Operators and the European Tourism Association.
To provide peace of mind to travellers who may be reticent to commit, A&K offers a flexible booking policy which allows cancellations for COVID-19 related reasons through 2021 when booked by December 31, 2020, with the ability to change or cancel up to 30 days prior to departure in the event of a COVID-19-related reason. Details on A&K’s Book with Confidence policy can be found here. And whether booking eight weeks or eight months in advance, travellers appreciate knowing every departure is guaranteed to operate with a minimum of two guests.
