 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.”

  • Have you ever thought of going to Madeira Island? It’s all on the blog. An adventure guide to Madeira Island and reasons why you should go! 🌴 
Link in bio!
  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
