 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.”

  • I told myself I won't be emotional on take off as I fly out to celebrate TJD turning 4, to a place I've always dreamt of going... I realized then that this 'feelings' part of me is exactly who I am, with full transparency. It would have been ugly not to have emotions anyway. 
I'll always be that girl who turned her passion that she strongly believed in, into a business in which today, makes me more alive than I ever was. 
I'll always be the girl who sometimes speaks before she thinks and the one who will always survive from everything despite how much time it could take me to get there. 
TJD turns 4. 
Im lucky to have known what I wanted to do with my life since the 7th grade. Despite the journey that had me battling my way through, I always knew one thing, I knew what I wanted, I always did. 
I'll always do. 
That made my faith in chasing my dreams, without anyone stopping me, stronger. 
The best part of this year is launching @travel4apurpose Another long time dream turning into reality. 
The one thing I know for sure is that I couldn't have gotten this far without some of the most inspiring people in my life that stuck to me not only at my best, but most of all at my worst. When you have those kind of people, wether it's one or ten, you drop everything for them...It's what the entire world is after, isn't it?
You drop the games, you drop the ego and you stick together and you inspire and... you love. Because when you hang on to them, you celebrate together & they make your whole success and dreams worth every minute of it. #TJDTurns4
