 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.”

  • Legend says that there is an intangible string of fate that binds two souls destined to be together... Whether as best friends, lovers or two crossing paths.
Those connected are bound no matter of time, place or circumstance.
The red string of fate is derived from an ancient East Asian belief. According to this myth, the Gods tie a red string around the ankles of those that are destined to meet each other or help each other in a certain way.
And so, no matter how near or far you are from the person, the thread remains. 
There will be times when mentally or physically, you feel distant from the person, but that doesn’t affect the thread that binds you two together. 
If you feel that with a lover, friend, or someone you just met... take a minute to remember what you just read and always be kind to one another. 💫
  • She turns 7 and my world upside down and inside out. 
I gave her a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take her years to learn that not everyone loves like she does... and still... she will love. 💫
  • Are you at work or at the beach? 
I’m sitting on my laptop behind my desk at work... but all I want to do is be on the beach 🏖
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💫
  • It’s been so good to be back to my second home in Dubai and back into routine work life. I know I’m very lucky to be always on the go, traveling and exploring but I crave routines sometimes. It keeps me grounded, a little balanced and back into my yoga practice. So I always try to have a balance of both worlds... even if it’s for a few days until I start craving the adventure again. 
A little bit of the @theitalianwayuae mood in my home this morning.
  • Maybe if I close my eyes strong enough and click my heels three times I could go back! Would that work?? Happy Sunday 😊
  • The Elephant is a symbol of strength, loyalty and power. In other cultures it also symbolizes fortune, protection and honor. 
There are 3 types of elephants: The African bush elephant, African Forest Elephant and the Asian Elephant. Which one do you think this beautiful elephant is from? 
Please don’t ride elephants and don’t support any organization that allows you to ride them 💕

  • If you are a person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. 
Know that you have the ability to calm storms in people... know that you give people hope and feel like they have a purpose but, also remind yourself that your heart needs rest...
I just felt like sharing this today...💫
Thank you Bianca 💕
  • I’m craving the sun ☀️ who would you go with? Tag them
  • I’m not going to lie, 2019 is looking pretty damn big!!
That’s the only way I can think of expressing at the moment! 
A lot of changes happening in my professional career and it’s frightening in an extremely exciting way. Does that make any sense! 
Most of all, I’m so proud of what has become of @travelwithtjd and the beautiful team behind it, in which we are slowly building to help make it grow. 
In about month, I go back to Tromso to sail the arctic wilderness once again for the 3rd time, but this time, weather conditions will be even stronger than ever and all this will be covered in white snow!
2019 is opening more doors for conquering the polar regions and new windows for the southern regions. Hope I meet some of you on one of our @travelwithtjd trips!
  • Back in my element. From snowboarding to diving. I’m so in love with both but ready for the beach and warm weather for a little break.
Which do you prefer?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past couple days with mixed emotions... it’s a good reminder on how I need to always fight for what I believe in. 
Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
