Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) announced details this week of a once-in-a-lifetime journey called “Around the World with Geoffrey Kent: An Inspiring Expedition by Private Jet,” which will take place on Sept. 30 – Oct. 25, 2020. This adventure offers 48 guests the opportunity to discover lesser-known destinations, such as Eritrea and Benin. 

“In creating this ‘Inspiring Expedition by Private Jet,’ I challenged myself to curate a new routing that included destinations I’ve been fascinated with but haven’t had the opportunity to visit, such as Eritrea for its unique architecture; Benin, one of the epicenters of African Voodoo; and Lençóis Maranhenses National Park in Brazil, an incredible landscape of white sand dunes dotted with ponds of crystal-clear waters,” explained Geoffrey Kent, the founder of Abercrombie & Kent.

“This journey is not about checking items off a list – it is about discovering new experiences in destinations that most travelers completely overlook, and doing so in a way that never sacrifices comfort and style.”

To travel on an A&K Private Jet Journey is to join an adventure packed with insider access, fine dining and invitation-only celebrations – each an authentic, unforgettable event that is beyond the reach of many travel companies.

Guiding the journey is a knowledgeable and experienced tour director who “pulls the strings of the trip from start to finish.” At the destinations, travelers are in smaller groups with a tour manager as well as local expert guides to ensure the trip goes smoothly. Furthermore, a physician, as well as a photographer, travel with the group.
