Family Holidays

Southern Africa is a fabulous region for a family holiday. The incredible family-friendly experiences on offer here range from whale watching adventures in South Africa’s Western Cape, to climbing Namibia’s fabled Dune 45 at dawn, to a beautiful Afro-Portuguese beach break on Mozambique’s remote and pristine archipelagos. As our lives become busier and time more precious, family holidays have never been more popular. Experts in the field, we know that a multi-generational holiday involves a great deal more planning than a couple’s romantic escape. To make the process easier, we have brought together our family-friendly itineraries.  Although every trip we design is tailor-made, the itineraries below are a good starting point for any multi-generational trip to Southern Africa:

Client Testimonials

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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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
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
