Bartholomeus Klip
Winelands

Channel your inner Karen Blixen of ‘Out of Africa’ fame at this supremely romantic farmhouse and game reserve in the Ribeek Valley. Just over one hour’s drive from Cape Town, Bartholomeus Klip is set beneath a spectacular mountain range and offers a wealth of activities from fishing to wildlife spotting – what could be more fabulous than zebras grazing in the sunset?

Four double bedrooms are available within the main house along with a separate outside suite boasting a secluded veranda with a sweeping mountain view. The independent Wild Olive House & Cottage is ideal for families with its own swimming pool. Nothing is too much trouble for the twin owners, Leslie and Louise Gillet who run the place with aplomb and innate hospitality. The food is five-star quality using the finest local ingredients and delightful small touches are everywhere. This is a place to treasure and return to again and again.

You either get the point of Africa or you don’t. What draws me backyear after year is that it is like the world with the lid off.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
