Travellers looking for an affordable holiday that includes comfortable and well located accommodation, private touring with a driver/guide and their own vehicle plus the signature style which Abercrombie & Kent is famous for, will relish the new collection of Connections Private Touring choices.

Designed for one or two people, here are A&K’s recommendations for travel later in the year.

August: Botswana

With game viewing at its peak in Botswana in August there’s no better time to go. Experience two of the country’s most diverse wildlife areas – the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve – with comfortable bush camps a highlight and game viewing offered in 4WD vehicles, mokoros (local dugout canoe), motorboats and on foot. Look out for predators, herds of buffalo, red lechwe, spotted hyena, hippo, elephant and much much more.

A&K’s 7-day ‘Botswana: Okavango Safari’ departs 6 and 13 August 2014 and is priced from $6,060 per person twin share.

September: Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka, great shoulder season savings are a highlight in September. A&K’s journey there reveals the country’s colonial history on a walking tour of Colombo and the tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya. Three World Heritage sites are also included in the famous Cultural Triangle, a pooja ceremony at the Temple of the Tooth plus a chance to meet spice growers in the Matale area.

A&K’s 9-day ‘Sri Lanka: Tea & Temples’ journey departs 6, 13, 20 and 27 September 2014 and is priced at $1,695 per person twin share.

A&K’s 8-day journey explores the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the ruins of Machu Picchu, the colonial and Inca highlights of Cusco and a walking tour in Lima.
