Africa

Rich in exceptional wildlife and breathtaking landscapes, Africa has long attracted adventurers, traders, explorers, intrepid travellers and trailblazers alike.


A journey into Africa with Abercrombie & Kent is a journey guided by over 50 years of passion for the mother continent. Our own story starts here, where we began our African love affair as a luxury safari company in 1960’s Kenya, eventually growing into an award-winning global network of offices. That pioneering passion burns on and is found in a broad range of bespoke A&K Africa itineraries enjoyed by discerning adventurers the world over.

For today's luxury traveller, an expedition to Africa is a call to witness the untold majesty of nature’s greatest theatre, the African wilderness. No experience brings you closer to Africa’s wildlife than an expertly curated A&K safari. Led by skilled guides, you’re placed front row in elite game reserves and unspoilt national parks in Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa and beyond.

A&K’s bespoke Africa journeys are as diverse, and sought after, as the continent itself. With expert itineraries and luxury accommodation taken care of, the choice is yours to indulge your wildest imaginings and make real your African dream.
