Featuring epic wildlife encounters in East & Southern Africa, cultural exploration in Tunisia and Benin and immersion in the natural wonders of Victoria Falls and the Sahara Desert

January 16, 2024

Abercrombie & Kent is launching a new Private Jet journey in 2025 that explores the wonders of the vast continent of Africa on one epic 23-day adventure. The luxury travel provider, which first introduced photographic safaris in Africa more than 60 years ago, has curated an innovative itinerary spanning seven countries, including, for the first time on an A&K Private Jet journey, Tunisia. On Africa: Across A Continent by Private Jet (Feb 4-26, 2025), guests will discover Tunisia’s magnificent Roman ruins at Carthage and Dougga, as well as explore the winelands of South Africa, the vanishing mountain gorillas of Rwanda and abundant Big Five of Kenya and Botswana; then learn about the ancient traditions of Benin and end with the bustling medina of Marrakech.

“Travellers look to A&K for the quintessential African journey, as well as intriguing destinations they may never have thought to visit,” explains Ann Epting, Senior Vice President, Private Jet & Special Interest Travel. “Africa: Across A Continent by Private Jet is an immersive itinerary that features a brand new destination, Tunisia, home to the most well-preserved Roman sites on the continent. I’m also excited to introduce guests to Benin, where they’ll discover a village on water often referred to as the Venice of West Africa, in addition to delivering some of our guests’ most beloved safari experiences in Rwanda, Kenya and Botswana, camping under the stars in Morocco’s Sahara Desert and more.”

This A&K Private Jet Journey is an artfully orchestrated sequence of inspiring destinations and once-in-a-lifetime experiences made possible through the flexibility of private air — as well as A&K’s unrivaled local presence and expertise in Africa, with offices in 10 countries throughout the continent. A small group of 48 like-minded guests travel on an all-inclusive itinerary packed with insider access, fine dining and astonishing wildlife viewing.
