Juvenile King penguins, aka oakum boys, are a sight to see on South Georgia. Landing at Gold Harbour, you'll see some 200,000 penguins and 10,000 seals, the water washing up onto the beach in the midst of their traffic. It’s pretty outrageous to contrast the grandeur of that landscape with the almost-comical activity on the beach, where king penguins are tripping over themselves and trying to get back up, and elephant seals are snorting through their nostrils as you walk by.

For me as a marine biologist, Antarctica is always about the wildlife, which is remarkable and unreal in so many respects. Just last month, I was along the Antarctic Peninsula on a research expedition and we counted 65 humpback whales in just a few hours time. We saw many feeding and several breaching (leaping from the water). I had never seen such a large concentration of whales. - As told by A&K climate change expert and marine biologist Dr. James McClintock.

Lavender fields in bloom - just one reason to visit Provence this summer. Even better, stay at your own private villa. A&K Villas in Provence sit in a landscape immortalized by Cezanne & Van Gogh, a combo of lavender fields, vineyards and cypress trees. #AKVillas

📷 by @lauraitzkowitz: Just had the most incredible tour of Udaipur's City Palace with @aktravel_usa guide Vikram Singh. He mentioned that as a young boy he used to play hide and seek in the palace, but it wasn't until I asked that he revealed he's actually descended from the maharanas 👑🏰🇮🇳 #freelancelife #aktravel
It's difficult to accurately describe Antarctica, but larger than life comes pretty close.
White sand or snow? Our Around the World Private Jet journey: The Tropics to the Arctic has a bit of both. And...no single supplement for solo travelers.
Thanks to @journeyswithgg for this great video: Had the opportunity to visit the Ilboru School-Special Needs Classrooms built and donated by @aktravel_usa and A&K Philanthropy in Tanzania. What incredible work they are doing to ensure that children who are deaf have e-readers where they can learn to read books and sign. #aktravel
Antarctica is spectacular but photographers know the holy grail is South Georgia where you'll find hundreds of thousands of penguins surrounded by stunning landscape. 📷by @michellevalbergphotography ・・・ A trio of King Penguins - Salisbury Plain - South Georgia. #kingpenguins #penguins #SalisburyPlain #southgeorgia #antarctica #abercrombiekent #mountains #instantarctica #aktravel #cruise
Today is World Wildlife Day. @geoffrey_kent says Shoot with a camera, not with a gun. We need to protect endangered animals or they will be gone! #worldwildlifeday #aktravel #sanctuaryretreats #abercrombiekent #wildlife
Yes, there are beaches with whiter sand and clearer, more turquoise water. Other beaches may be easier to get to. But to find the most laidback and truly happy people, Brazil is second to none. I used to spend a month of each summer here, exploring uncharted beaches, living off mangoes and beer, utterly content with a simple lifestyle. Now, it’s nice to be able to offer a similar experience but in a significantly more luxurious manner on an A&K Tailor Made Brazil journey. - @javierechecopar #TailorMadeTakeover
Today we’re wrapping up our #TailorMadeTakeover around Latin America with @javierechecopar in its largest country, Brazil. Few know about it today but Ouro Preto was once the largest city in the New World. The gold mining brought amazing wealth which was used to build a stunning colonial town, of terracotta roofs and bleached facades, nestled between hills and forests. Dozens of white and gold churches are found, some enormous, built on top of hills, others small and intimate, hidden around a corner. I spent a week here during carnival, walked endlessly and by the end of the trip continued to stumble across little architectural treasures.
