In Search of New Adventures, Geoffrey Kent Curates an Inspiring Private Jet Expedition Around the World

November 7, 2017 -

Despite having spent a lifetime exploring the world, there are still places Geoffrey Kent, founder of Abercrombie & Kent, longs to experience in person.

“I can’t think of a more fulfilling way to discover a new destination than by sharing the experience with people that share my passion for travel adventure,” explains A&K founder Geoffrey Kent. This impulse has led him to design a new exclusive journey by private jet: Around the World with Geoffrey Kent: An Inspiring Expedition. Fifty guests will join him on a globe-spanning journey from the lush rainforests and pristine beaches of Nicaragua to the medieval heritage of Georgia, aboard an exclusively-chartered jet. While local staff on-the-ground guarantee access to people and sites beyond the reach of the average traveler to deliver the most memorable local experience.

Around the World With Geoffrey Kent: An Inspiring Expedition by Private Jet (Oct 18-Nov 11, 2018)

“We’ll be circling the world to explore destinations I’ve always wanted to experience in person, as well as a few of my favorites, which we’ll offer up in an entirely new way,” says Kent. “I’m particularly looking forward to returning to Oman, where I served while in the British Army.”

Beginning in Miami, the first stop is Nicaragua, to explore the stunning Emerald Coast, with its dramatic national parks, volcanoes, and vibrant colonial-era towns. Then it’s on to the vast wilderness of Chilean Patagonia with its breathtaking landscapes and great ice fields. On Easter Island guests share a vibrant cultural tradition among the mystical statues. New Zealand offers a choice of thrilling adventures before flying directly to the celebrated vineyards of Western Australia's Margaret River. In the Indian state of Kerala guests travel far off the beaten path to experience the spiritual side of India. Then a celebration of the rich history of the Sultanate of Oman from the desert to the coast before ending at the cultural crossroads of East and West in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia.

“Every three days we have planned a choice of Design Your Day® adventures, from hiking through the rainforests of Nicaragua to taking part in a sailing on the Swan River,” explains Kent. “Our goal is for each destination to outdo the one before.”

Privileged Access

Private jet travel with Abercrombie & Kent allows for a more authentic and intimate journey, filled with invitation-only events, events, including an opportunity to witness a traditional boat race in southern India, as well as a private choral performance in Georgia – all arranged exclusively for A&K guests.

One of A&K’s most experienced Tour Directors orchestrates the journey from start to finish. On the ground, guests are divided into smaller parties of no more than 16, each led by a Tour Manager and assisted by expert local guides who share their personal stories and lend insight beyond any guidebook. A photographer travels with the group to capture professional-quality images, while an onboard physician is available to assist with any medical issues. As part of A&K’s Travelling Bell Boy® service, a dedicated Luggage Manager oversees the handling of the luggage between every destination.

One-of-a-Kind Accommodations

Accommodations reflect the distinctive character of each destination and offer authentic hospitality with the exclusive use of several properties, including Explora Rapa Nui in Easter Island, an eco-friendly lodge that reflects traditional designs; COMO the Treasury in Australia, a Victorian-era state house turned cutting-edge hotel; and Kumarakom Lake Resort in India, composed of traditionally styled, luxury 16th-century villas. Guests may also take advantage of A&K’s complimentary laundry service, Traveller’s Valet® at several points throughout the itinerary.

Fine Dining & Entertainment

Meals are more than just a chance to dine at the end of the day – there are a feast for the senses, with local entertainment and stunning natural backdrops. Picnic on the slopes of a dormant volcano, enjoy a torchlit feast on the shores of Easter Island and savor an authentic Australian barbecue with a view of the Royal Perth Yacht Club. A&K partners with local chefs to showcase the finest ingredients and pair local wines to guarantee top-notch dining in even the most remote locales.

Luxury in the Air

Traveling by private jet allows guests to experience far more than a conventional itinerary -- with greater comfort and ease. Onboard comforts of the privately-chartered Icelandair Boeing 757-200ER are 50 custom-designed Italian leather seats equipped with personal massage system, 4-way adjustable headrests and lumbar support, that open to fully lie-flat beds 6.5' long (79” pitch). Additional seating enables each guest to socialize in comfort with their travel companions, while a full privacy screen and extra-high seat back provide undisturbed rest.

Guests enjoy a fully stocked, open bar featuring top-shelf wine and spirits, in addition to first-class meal service that includes personalized espresso drinks. Completing the best-in-class in-flight experience is a dedicated cabin crew with a crew-to-guest ratio of 1:8. A range of amenities are offered, designed to make guests feel at home, including Bose headphones and iPads loaded with music and movies.

Abercrombie & Kent was a private jet pioneer, introducing the first Royal Air Tour in 1989. Today A&K is one of the most experienced companies in the luxury private jet business, having designed and operated dozens of programs on a variety of luxury aircraft to destinations around the world, as well as custom-designed jet itineraries for families and private groups.
