An Abercrombie & Kent business class customized boeng 777 landed at Kigali International Airport on Thursday afternoon, February 16, 203 with 60 high-end tourists trotting the globe.
About 20 Safari SUVs convoy drove off to luxury hotels in Kinigi where they stayed before trekking the Virunga mountains this Friday to see the rare mountain gorillas and golden monkeys in the Virunga mist.
This is a second cohort following one that visited end of October last year.
These rare tourists trot the world to enjoy unique destinations on their luxury vacations arranged by Abercrombie & Kent (A&K), an award winning luxury travel company, offering luxury vacations, private tours and small group adventures worldwide.
Rwanda is now on their bucket list to their customers.
Rwanda used to be an extension, but with recent investments into national parks with the big five and unique Nyungwe Forest, conservation policy and professional handling of tourists, the country is now one of the top global destinations.
Abercrombie & Kent began 60 years ago on the plains of Africa, where Geoffrey Kent and his parents pioneered a new style of luxury adventure travel.
From its first journeys in 1962, A&K grew into a globe-spanning network of companies, opening destinations previously inaccessible to visitors and establishing a new benchmark for experiential travel.
Packages vary from small-group journeys to Luxury Tailor Made Travel, Luxury Expedition Cruises and Private Jet journeys.
Abercrombie & Kent reveals every destination from a true local perspective with a level of style and service beyond the reach of any other travel company.
Rwanda seems to be attracting more tourists and local partners are working around the clock to persuade tourists to stay longer and visit different destinations than just the gorillas.
Paul Muvunyi, Chairman and Director for A&K in Rwanda says, “We wish to have at least one visit every month…after all the first visit received positive recommendations.”
“Apart from Rwanda’s impeachable and beautiful scenery that attracts everyone’s eye, the country is very safe,” Muvunyi says. “Security is one of the major factors. Rwanda is a very safe country, and that qualifies it to the preferable destination for any tourist.”
He also said that there is now a good number of professional guides and drivers with experience for more than 15 years, an asset to the nascent industry.
Muvunyi thanked the support of Rwanda Development Board (RDB)’s support with professional guidance from the airport to the hotels and national the parks.
