Africa, the Dark Continent, the home of humanity and one place where you can still connect with the spirit of nature and enjoy untamed adventures without having to be contained by concrete jungles. Travelling into the heart of this free and vibrant land not only requires plenty of planning but also an expert’s guidance as its many pleasures are both unknown and unpredictable. Abercrombie & Kent offer one of the very best in luxury holiday trips when it comes to a Safari into its vast expanse. A 111-day trip to Kenya and its wildlife reserves is a once in a lifetime opportunity to replenish your senses and carry home memories that will remain forever.
Founded in 1962 by a British family living in East Africa, Abercrombie & Kent merge comfort with the exotic as the trip starts off in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital. Later you move on to the Daphne Sheldrick’s Baby Elephant Orphanage to visit some of the African giants following which you can hand-feed the tall giraffe!
That marks only the beginning of a fortnight’s adventure which will then have you as a witness to Africa’s finest wildlife riches playing out in its beautiful plains- the Samburu game reserve offering the wild buffalo, lion, leopard and even a camel ride! Then we move on to the renowned Masai Mara Game reserve where the African Savannah plays out its daily drama in all its glory.
A trip through Sweetwaters Reserve will offer a glimpse of the rare chimps and the endangered black rhino. Sleeping in the tents at night, a visit that will take you to the local tribesmen who gladly teach a few of their survival skills and a bit more of wildlife to prep up the journey; at $5,825 per person, this is one trip that is must for everyone who wishes to see the untamed Africa!
