Abercrombie & Kent relaunching African adventures

A luxury travel operator from Cheltenham is resuming small group trips in Africa after the coronavirus pandemic - starting with a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

And Abercrombie & Kent is adding other African adventures including to witness the Great Migration on safari and visiting Egypt.

Founder Geoffrey Kent said: "After months spent at home, travellers are ready to get away but are asking where can we go that is safe?'."

"Our guests are looking for places that offer wide open spaces and lend themselves to physical distancing or the novelty of exploring a completely new destination."

He continued: "This is Africa's moment. Safaris are a natural fit as we begin travelling again with plenty of space and privacy.

"Plus, tourism plays an important role in protecting endangered wildlife, not only by keeping poachers at bay, but also bringing much-needed funding to local conservation projects."

The company said it is seeing interest in East Africa and Egypt for 2021, along with other destinations such as Southern Africa, Morocco, Alaska and the Galapagos Islands.

A flexible booking policy allows cancellations for trips next year due to Covid-19, if they are booked this year.
