 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.”

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
