Ampersand Travel Presents... Southern Africa!
You need to get a few things right to do what we do. Excellent ground handlers, an enviable contacts book, expert in-house consultants and frequent research trips are all key, but the crucial thing you need is... love. Ampersand is a small company and we have chosen to grow slowly, maintaining our personal service and only selling destinations we love.
Which brings us to: SOUTHERN AFRICA
We are truly, madly, deeply in love with this jaw-dropping, untamed region which thoroughly reawakens the spirit of all who visit. Years in the planning, we are delighted to unveil our new ultra-luxurious tailored tours across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. The heady mix of ravishing beaches, chic cities, surreal deserts, thrilling wildlife and world-class cuisine and lodgings provide rich pickings for the adventurer, sun-seeker, safari enthusiast, food-and-wine fanatic and budding photographer alike.
Known for our tailor-made experiences across Asia and the British Isles, Southern Africa is where it all began for Ampersand’s MD & Founder, James Jayasundera. Twenty-five years ago, and straight out of university, James headed for Namibia and became a member of the founding team that launched Wolwedans. The wildly beautiful landscapes of Namibia stole his heart from an impressionable age and steered his path into luxury, experiential travel – the type which leaves an indelible impression on the soul.
Today, James lives between London – Ampersand's HQ – and a farm in South Africa’s ravishing Cape Winelands, which is his second home and launch-pad into the region. Ampersand’s Africa specialist Ellen Cantle is also on hand to provide expert first-hand advice and beautifully hand-crafted trips. Whatever is on your Southern Africa wish-list – from refreshing wine-tasting tours to soul-searching desert journeys, cut-crystal safaris, mighty waterfalls or pearly white isles – we can help you reveal the majesty of this region in unique and unforgettable ways.
