Abercrombie & Kent
Expert Panel Awards: Best Tour Operator
Abercrombie & Kent
Runner up: Intrepid Travel
From not-so-humble beginnings in Nairobi in 1962, Abercrombie & Kent has morphed into one of the world’s most exceptional tour companies. Safaris are still its most recognisable stock in trade, but A & K now offers invigorating adventures on every continent. Most itineraries are tailored individually to clients’ desires, whether that be breaching the dark heart of Papua New Guinea, touring Aboriginal artist communities by private charter or cruising the Nile in A & K’s private fleet of Sun Boats with rooftop bars and pools. Other itineraries take small groups on unexpected adventures – up the Amazon, perhaps, or on an opulent expedition cruise to Antarctica, where all passengers have balconies for wildlife viewing. There’s also a feel-good benefit to travelling with A & K; a portion of its profits is funnelled back into the communities. It’s luxury with all the trappings. www.abercrombiekent.com.au
