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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Lima, Peru

Accommodation: Wyndham Costa del Sol Lima Airport

Arrive in Lima this evening and transfer to your hotel. Founded in 1535 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizzaro, this “City of Kings” is a mélange of colonial structures, pre-Columbian sites and modern conveniences.

Day 2: Cusco/Sacred Valley | Andean Weaving

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Sol y Luna

Fly to Cusco and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant offering Novo Andino cuisine, before driving to Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Visit members of the camelid family (llamas, alpacas, guanacos and vichunas) and learn about the fabrics made from their shaggy coats using ancient weaving techniques. Meet with locals wearing their colorful traditional clothing and learn from your guide how it differs between communities. Receive a lesson in the Quechuan language. Tonight, join the chef at your hotel for a Chef’s Table experience, as he demonstrates the preparation of a variety of Peruvian dishes.

Day 3: Urubamba | Kayak in the Sacred Valley

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Hotel Sol y Luna

Prepare for a unique Sacred Valley adventure on the drive to Huaypo, a beautiful lagoon perched in the Andes. Admire the view of the mountains as you paddle around the lagoon in sea kayaks — a ride that reveals the natural beauty of Peru. Enjoy an outdoor picnic on the banks of Huaypo. Join an A&K Young Explorers Guide on a visit to a local house in the town of Maras. Learn how to play the traditional Sapo game and experience Peruvian home life in this remote Andean village. Enjoy leisure time at the hotel and a fun family pizza night with stargazing (weather permitting).

Day 4: Machu Picchu | The Lost City of the Incas

When school is in session, visit the Kuychi Center to meet the underprivileged children at Niños del Arco Iris (Children of the Rainbow), a project supported by A&K Philanthropy. Explore the fortress of Ollantaytambo, a formidable structure of massive stone terraces that hug the mountain slopes. Next, journey deep into the Andes toward Machu Picchu aboard the glass-topped Vistadome train, gazing out at the spectacular Peruvian countryside passing by. Discover this breathtaking Incan citadel, following an expert guide who paces the trek for young explorers. Imagine those who once dwelled here and marvel at their stonework.

Compiled of massive stones, the largest of which may weigh as much as 200 tons, its walls were cut and placed together with incredible precision and without a single drop of mortar.
