Just sitting in the Nairobi airport after an amazing A&K Safari in Kenya and Tanzania. This experience far exceeded my expectations. The guides were warm, knowledgable, and passionate. and Frankly I teared up a bit when saying goodbye to our Kenya guide, Peter, before heading to the airport. Dr Cornelius, our Tanzania guide, is a veterinarian - he knows the animals outside AND in (he's treated giraffes!). Every hotel was filled with friendly staff. Ever day was filled with surprises. We saw over 10 days seven leopards AND a rhino - some of the most elusive animals. We saw baby hyenas from a few yards away playing. We saw a lion carrying her cub in we mouth. The list goes on. Our guides were diligent and determined to find what we hoped to see. A&K makes this experience even better - you really don't have to think about anything except what time we are leaving in the morning or meeting for dinner at night. Customer service at its best - they live up to their reputation!

Words cannot describe the level of service provided by A&K. I just returned from my trip to South Africa and Zimbabwe, and it was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Every single detail was executed with perfection. The pre-trip documentation was superb, the guides/drivers in each location were so knowledgable and professional, and our accommodations as well as the service provided at the accommodations was beyond First Class. Most of all, our guide was remarkable! Ananda van der Merwe was with us from start to finish, and she made our whole journey even more perfect than we could have ever imagined. She was so attentive, professional, knowledgeable, sweet, caring, thoughtful, patient, accommodating, smart, funny, and MORE!! Anyone traveling to South Africa should request that Ananda be their guide. You will not regret it!

Thank you for an incredible vacation. It was utter perfection from the moment we booked the trip to the moment we arrived back home.

We took a trip to Jordan and Oman planned through our travel councillor and A&K. We chose this upmarket company and certainly had an upmarket holiday. Everything was top notch from beginning to end. We saw all the amazing sights, were given excellent tour guides and the accommodation was 5 star all the way. They included a couple of unusual accommodation choices too such as a rather posh tent in the desert and an Eco tent at the turtle reserve in Oman.
Would fully recommend this whole tour and A&K.

Recently had a holiday booked with Abercrombie and Kent which was so disappointing we left 5 days early and the rest of the family left 3 days early. The way that A&K dealt with the situation and with us as guests was unprofessional and the property manager we dealt with on site was rude and antagonising. We have had numerous holidays with A&K before and never have we had an experience like this. It has been constant excuses and no apologies. We will never travel with them again and have advised our extended family, friends and industry contacts to do the same.
