October 04, 2022
Abercrombie & Kent (A&K), the multi-award-winning luxury travel company, has announced the opening of four new Destination Management Companies (DMCs) in Colombia, Namibia, Saudi Arabia and Canada. A&K has more than 55 offices in over 30 countries, making it the world's largest network of destination management companies serving the luxury market. Headquartered in London, the company celebrated its 60th anniversary this year since it was founded by Geoffrey Kent and his parents in Kenya as a luxury safari outfitter with the philosophy of “shoot with a camera, not with a gun.”
"Luxury travel is rebounding at an incredible rate, and we're ready to serve the demand," says Martin Froggatt, Executive Vice President of Destination Management. He adds, "A&K's global experience, offering unparalleled consistency, insider access and financial resilience, makes our growth trajectory huge. Listening to our partners, we know the demand for A&K to open more DMCs is firmly there."
A&K’s most recent DMC opening was the USA, focused on the American West and Alaska. The company has offices worldwide, including Kenya, Egypt, Thailand, Brazil and beyond, with operations on all seven continents and a staff of almost 2,500. The company has three outbound tour operating businesses in North America, Europe and Australasia.
A&K is dedicated to positively impacting lives and livelihoods in the places where its guests travel. Through Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy (AKP), A&K's local offices support community partners making a difference in education, health care, conservation and enterprise development, projects that benefit more than 125,000 men, women and children each year. During the pandemic, AKP worked with non-governmental organizations to deliver more than 2 million dollars in medical supplies and emergency relief to people whose livelihoods depend on wildlife and heritage tourism.
