An African Extravaganza: Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe & Mozambique

22 days from £13,385 per person

This once-in-a-lifetime holiday is a celebration of Africa’s most prized hotspots. A sweeping journey from the highest dunes in Africa to the Okavango’s watery magic, home to some of the best wildlife on the planet. A trip to the mighty Victoria Falls, a glitzy 3 night-stay at the iconic Mount Nelson in Cape Town and finishing off with a flourish on the sun-drenched beaches of Southern Mozambique.

Spanning 24 days, this expansive holiday will take you on a journey across 5 different countries, 4 different World Heritage Sites and many thousands of miles with the added bonus of staying at some of Africa’s most treasured hotels and lodges. No day will be the same and you are continually wowed by the exquisite landscapes, rich cultures, traditions and experiences that each of these countries has on offer.

The holiday begins at Sossusvlei in Namibia where you will have the opportunity to climb the world’s highest freestanding dune and track the elusive and magnificent desert elephant. Next, a scenic flight across Namibia will take you to Etosha where you will explore the lovely Etosha National Park. 

From the arid and stark beauty of Namibia, a 2-hour flight will take you to the vibrant and bustling city of Cape Town in South Africa, home to Table Mountain, Robben Island and some of the most delicious wines in the World. From Cape Town, venture forth to the watery wilds of the Okavango Delta in Botswana and embark on a thrilling 5-day safari. 

From here, another hop on a light aircraft and a road transfer over into Zimbabwe takes you to the magnificent Victoria Falls. After a wondrous 2 nights in Victoria Falls, jump onto a flight to Johannesburg where an overnight stop at the stylish and luxurious Saxon Boutique will leave you refreshed and ready to embark on the last leg of your journey. 

Another short flight takes you from Johannesburg to Maputo in Mozambique. Take a road transfer south to the 5-Star White Pearl Resort where deserted beaches, swaying palms and a huge dollop of beach heaven awaits. Spend the next 5 nights relaxing in paradise before jetting off in a helicopter back to Maputo for your ongoing flight to Johannesburg and an overnight flight to London.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
