South Africa in Style: Cape, Kalahari & Safari

15 days from £7,975 per person

When you visualise South Africa, do you dream of epic star-filled skies, charming colonial heritage and unparalleled game spotting – but done in exclusive style and the height of comfort? For those who like the best of the best, with plenty of flair, this itinerary will not disappoint. 

Chic and sunny Cape Town is the perfect gateway to this impressive country. People-watch at the excellent seafood restaurants and admire regal Table Mountain which keeps watch over the city. For a unique perspective, enjoy a Stand-Up Paddle Board tour from the buzzing V&A Waterfront to the Cape Peninsula; explore the fish market and see the seals at Kalk Bay Harbour, meet penguins at one of our secret beaches and snorkel in rock pools the size of swimming pools. 

The Winelands is the next stop on your itinerary. Just a short hop from Cape Town, you will relish this quiet and tranquil atmosphere. Stay on a 300-year-old Dutch Colonial farm estate, brought up to date with a beautiful spa, a plethora of wine-tasting options and exceptional organic dining experiences which celebrate the fresh produce of the farm and the surrounding region.

Now – to the wilds of Africa. Just the name Kalahari summons up visions of burnt orange vistas, wide-open landscapes and unique wildlife. This itinerary offers a rare opportunity to stay at Tswalu Kalaha in South Africa's largest game reserve – so exclusive and protected that only 30 guests are allowed at a time. Revel in the solitude of this energising and once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

The last few days of your trip could be your most memorable. Stay and safari within the exclusive Sabi Sands game reserve, an unfenced extension of Kruger National Park only accessible to its guests. Experience the best of South African game spotting but without the crowds and enjoy unsurpassed luxury at the intimate Dulini Lodge, which oozes style and sophistication.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, 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
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
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
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
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
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
