Massive discounts on A&K’s new luxury African safari

For a limited time only, travel agents can save more than $3,000 per person on an Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) luxury African safari journey.

As pioneers of luxury African adventures, A&K has teamed up with luxury stablemates Sanctuary Retreats to create the Great East Africa Migration with Sanctuary Retreats – a new 12-day private safari journey in Kenya and Tanzania.

This comes with the announcement of A&Ks new Small Group Journeys portfolio, which you can read all about by clicking here.

With prices from $12,330 per person twin share on the Great East Africa Migration with Sanctuary Retreats journey, travellers can save more than $3,000 per person if booked before 31 August 2019.

Kenya, Masai Mara, Cheetah

With travel dates between 1 October 2019 and 20 December 2020, A&K’s product manager for Africa & Arabia, Patrick Clementson, said this is one sale period agents should not pass up.

“This is an opportunity to experience the iconic wildlife and epic landscapes of Kenya and Tanzania in true A&K style,” he said.

“It’s also a chance to witness one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on Earth, the annual migration of more than a million wildebeest, zebra and other herd animals across the vast grasslands and treacherous waterways of the Serengeti and Masai Mara.”

Africa, Kenya, Sanctuary Olonana

The journey covers several of the world’s most acclaimed national parks and a combination of ecosystems. What’s more, the choices made for your clients’ accommodation for the length of their stay are based on wildlife patterns, providing countless opportunities for unforgettable encounters.

Among the highlights of the journey, guests will see the great elephant herds of Tarangire National Park; observe the Great Migration close-up in the Serengeti and Masai Mara; toast sunset over the savannah and dine on Swahili fare by firelight at a bush dinner; meet the Maasai community on a cultural village visit, and see the awe-inspiring ecosystem of the Ngorongoro Crater.

With any luck, your clients will come away from this tour having seen most if not all of Africa’s most iconic safari species: lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, giraffe, cape buffalo and hyena.

Throughout the journey, guests will stay in some of East Africa’s most luxurious safari camps and lodges, hosted by Sanctuary Retreats, with expert safari guides, game viewing in quality safari vehicles, fine dining and luxuriously-appointed ‘tents’ and safari suites all-included.

The journey also offers unforgettable cultural encounters, with visits to a local Maasai village, a working coffee plantation and community projects supported by A&K Philanthropy.

Africa, Tanzania, Gibb's Farm

“This journey is a brilliant first-time African safari experience, and it’s also a memorable safari for even the most seasoned Africa traveller,” Clementson said.

Agents are advised to get in fast, as places are limited on the Great East Africa Migration with Sanctuary Retreats and will go quickly at these prices.

A&K has also released its collection of Limited Edition Small Group Journeys. You can read all about the new tours the luxury travel specialist is offering by clicking here.
