Southern Africa, Tailor-made:
'Luxury is in the experience'

We love luxury and style at Ampersand Travel, but we also love to engage with our destination. If that means the odd bumpy road or a bit of glamping in order to see something truly special, that's fine by us. Most of our clients agree (they know that luxury isn't far away, after all), and for those that don't, we are happy to arrange super-luxe holidays from start to finish.
