 Abercrombie & Kent and Land Rover join forces to offer ultimate in Adventure Travel

  • British brands announce new adventure travel partnership
  • The ultimate in luxury partners with the ultimate in off-road capability
  • First adventures to take place in UK, India and Tanzania in 2014

Abercrombie & Kent (A & K), the luxury travel specialist, recently opened the doors to its impressive Luxury Travel Boutique in Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. With its presence now firmly established in the region, it has partnered with British automotive brand Land Rover to offer the region the ultimate in Adventure Travel.

The two brands, both synonymous with adventure, exploration and luxury, have come together to offer travellers unforgettable experiences that are only possible through such a partnership. Experiences offering guests the chance to explore landscapes, view wildlife and meet communities well and truly off the beaten track.

Under the care of specialist instructors, the adventurous-spirited will be in the driver’s seat and have the unique opportunity to directly experience the full terrain taking in the sights and sounds of the truly extraordinary locations on offer in space and comfort.

This coming together of two iconic British brands will commence with a Best of British Tour and two itineraries that showcase some of the most thrilling experiences in Africa and India respectively.

The eight day Best of British Tour in September will start at London’s Savoy Hotel, then go on to explore the glorious countryside and historic sites of central England. Naturally attendees will hone their driving skills with Land Rover Experience instructors. On Route there will be an opportunity to visit Gaydon, the centre of Land Rover’s design and engineering and drive a series of heritage Land Rovers.

Between 1 September and 14 October 2014 there will be four ten day adventures in Tanzania, taking in the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Tarangire National Parks, returning by night to A&K’s trademark luxury mobile tented camps.   A challenging three day drive across the Serengeti, home to an abundance of big game will also showcase the Land Rover ‘s unique all terrain capability through the toughest of environments.

Expert guides will accompany the Tanzanian tours, unlocking the astounding archaeology of the region and providing insights into the varied wildlife, from the endangered black rhino to the vast herds of zebra and wildebeest that roam the caldera.

Tigers are the focus for Land Rover and A&K’s second adventure in 2014, which will take in the best India has to offer. With four tours running between 1November and 11 December 2014, this adventure blends India’s extraordinary heritage with the rich jungle and the challenges of deep ravines and dense forest, providing a totally unique adventure.

Starting in Delhi and taking routes that are less well travelled through national parks rich in wildlife, there will be time to observe tigers, stunning birdlife, spotted deer and black buck. Travelling into the hills of Pench National park provides the opportunity to spot leopards and wild dogs, then the itinerary takes in the Mughal splendours of the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan and the ‘rose city’ of Jaipur.

Key to both journeys is the expert tuition that guests will receive from Land Rover Experience instructors, ensuring they can fully and safely enjoy the outstanding capability of the Land Rover vehicles. Naturally A&K’s knowledgeable guides will accompany the groups, providing real insight into the places they visit and sights they see. And at the end of every intrepid day the most indulgent accommodation and delicious cuisine await.

Commenting on this unique offering to the region, Debbie Studdart-Duncan, Manager of the A & K Luxury Boutique in Abu Dhabi, said “This is just the start of what promises to be an exciting and long standing partnership that will take customers to some of the most outstanding and diverse parts of the world. A & K prides itself on its British pedigree, and the synergy between these two iconic British brands is set to elevate luxury adventure travel to new heights. In addition, A & K customers can currently look forward to a complimentary Fortnum & Mason hamper when they make any booking with us.”

  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD
  • Hello Maldives and hello @joalimaldives 
Celebrating the official opening week of JOALI - A property that is very close to my heart with its’ core values, philosophy and management. Congratulations to the whole team for the successful opening!

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
  • Take me back to @joalimaldives ☀️ Tag the person who you want to go to Maldives with!
