Honeymoons

Southern Africa promises some of the most soul-stirring, thrilling and romantic experiences on Earth. From witnessing the magnificent pageantry of wildlife on the world’s best safaris and enjoying a “sleep-out” under Africa’s mind-blowing stars, to private picnics on pearly white isles and exclusive wine tasting tours through ravishing vineyards, a honeymoon in Southern Africa cannot be beat. Having personally seen all the places we recommend and with a great deal of experience designing tailor-made honeymoons, you can rely on us to create a romantic and entirely bespoke journey for you and your new husband or wife, whether you want to fill your time away with activities and experiences, or simply sit back and relax and enjoy your surroundings. Let us take care of all the details of your holiday – from flights and transfers to booking dinner in the most romantic restaurant in town – so you can sit-back, unwind in style and enjoy simply each other. We have developed a special Honeymoon Gift List that allows you to ask friends and family to contribute towards your luxury honeymoon or special occasion, receive personal messages and check on contributions received. If you would like to register for this service, please call us on 020 7819 9770 to discuss the details.  Every couple is unique and each luxury honeymoon we create is entirely bespoke. To help guide and inspire you, here are a few romantic journeys we love:

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
