yoga, rhinos, and dark skies: ampr now representing andbeyond

February 19th, 2013

We are proud to announce  andBeyond as our newest client.  andBeyond is a leader in luxury experiential travel and a conservation pioneer offering well-heeled travelers diversity, escape, and natural heritage.

New & Noteworthy

  • In the first private game reserve donation of rhinoceros to another country, andBeyond is translocating six white rhinoceros from andBeyond South Africa to Botswana.  South Africa lost 668 to illegal poaching last year;  Botswana offers excellent security systems to protect the endangered species.
  • andBeyond is currently offering honeymoon travelers a 50 percent discount on the bride’s travel across all &Beyond lodges.  Highlighted locations include:  andBeyond Mnemba Island where guests can swim with dolphins and watch green turtles hatch before they swim off to sea; and andBeyond Kichwa Tembo, located in one of the richest and most diverse wildlife areas in the world.
  • The Homestead at andBeyond Phinda Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal is now offering Yoga Safaris.  Other speciality safaris include  family, photography, birding, and wildlife tracking.
  • andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in Namibia is situated in Africa’s first International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR) – one of the darkest yet measured. Absolute silence and dramatic landscapes make it one of the best settings in the world for stargazing. The Lodge’s Resident Astronomer educates guests daily in the high-tech observatory with a Meade LX200R 12-inch telescope.
  • andBeyond Ngala Tented Camp in Kruger National Park has been fully rebuilt.  Each of the nine new, secluded tented suites features outdoor showers, deep-soaking baths, and private decks overlooking the seasonal Timbavati riverbed.


Special Mention

  • andBeyond’s family safari circuit includes 11 lodges that specialize in educational adventures such as learning about Maasai culture, fishing and frogging safaris, species identification, and more.
  • Sandcastle dining at andBeyond Mnemba Island Lodge is known as “mchanga ngome.”  A private “dining room” is constructed of sand for a fine-dining experience complemented by a Zanzibar sunset.
  • andBeyond’s authentically skilled and trained chefs curate a Grand Tastes of Indiaculinary adventure, leaving food lovers feasting like maharajas.
  • andBeyond Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge has a playful “recycled theme” throughout, à la tractor tire swings.
  • andBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp environs are home to pied colobus monkeys found nowhere else in the Serengeti.
  • andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge and Kichwa Tembo – much loved by US media and travelers – are part of the andBeyond collection.
