Abercrombie & Kent Wings Over the World Journeys Offer the Luxury of More Time to Explore

Travel Agent News for African Travel, Inc. and Lion World Travel

New journeys in Spain & Morocco and East Africa feature the convenience of privately-chartered flights



DOWNERS GROVE, IL – October 12, 2017… Abercrombie & Kent has expanded its Wings Over the World portfolio with two new regional journeys that combine luxury small-group travel with the comfort and convenience of privately-chartered flights. Explore the enduring influence of the Moors on architecture and cuisine on Wings Over Spain & Morocco or fly between the finest safari destinations on Wings Over East Africa, while enjoying breathtaking aerial views of the Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti.


Each Wings Over the World journey features privately-chartered flights between each destination for the reward of visiting remote sites with less time spent getting there. Hassle-free flight departures and arrivals, often at separate terminals for faster security and immigration procedures, avoid connections and long layovers due to commercial aviation schedules.


Private flights give guests more time to relax in luxurious five-star accommodations and explore alongside an A&K Resident Tour Director, who has lived for decades in the destination, offering the kind of insight that can only come from a local. The small group size makes exclusive insider access possible, from private museum openings to visits with local people in their homes.


Abercrombie & Kent’s newly expanded Wings Over the World portfolio for 2018 includes six journeys that explore East Africa, Spain & Morocco, China, India, Australia and the Mediterranean, with additional departures in 2019.
