As the head of the Abercrombie & Kent Group of Companies, Geoffrey Kent brings a truly extraordinary lifetime of experience, innovation and genuine passion to the world’s most exclusive luxury adventure travel experiences. A pioneer of the modern luxury safari, Mr. Kent has taken his company – and his clients – from undiscovered areas of the African continent to the furthermost reaches of the globe. Under his visionary direction, A&K offers hundreds of small group escorted journeys and tailor made private travel to more than 100 countries on all seven continents. The company built its award-winning reputation by being the first to bring unexpected comforts and amenities to remote destinations. The common denominator is an unwavering commitment to service: the unquestioned best in expert guides, luxurious accommodations, safety standards, unique and proprietary modes of transport, and an assiduously-crafted choice of amenities and insider access experiences.

A keen and abiding passion for wildlife preservation has been the centerpiece of the careers and personal lives of Geoffrey Kent and Jorie Butler Kent. In 1982 they founded Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy, an award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting ecosystems and wildlife, while supporting indigenous communities. Working through A&K offices around the globe, Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy makes it possible for A&K guests to give back to the places they visit. Additional details can be found at
