Suggested itineraries in June

Winter in Southern Africa is simply sublime. Expect warm days and chilly evenings, although it is worth noting that the evenings can be very chilly especially in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The safari camps and lodges are all very well prepared for the cold nights and snuggling up under your duvet with hot water bottle and hot toddy listening to the African nightjar is very special indeed! The daytimes, on the other hand, are glorious with bright, white sunny days and wildlife in abundance. If a safari doesn’t appeal, scuba diving in Mozambique, sightseeing at the mighty Victoria Falls or standing in awe at the bottom of Big Daddy at Sossusvlei are all on the menu, as is a visit to Cape Town or the Garden Route where the landscapes can be enjoyed with fewer tourists and some fantastic luxury lodgings with a roaring log fire.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

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.

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.

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!

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!
