South Africa & Namibia By Sea

This expedition has no scheduled departures at this time.

Our South Africa expedition takes us from the cultural melting-pot of Durban, along the rugged, untouched Wild Coast with excursions inland to view Africa’s iconic wildlife. Explore South Africa’s scenic Garden Route and round the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas. We include a multi-day Cape Town tour, where exquisite natural beauty and a chic cosmopolitan vibe co-mingle. Our Namibia adventure travel itinerary takes us to the mysterious ghost town of Kolmanskop, which is slowly being buried under the shifting sand dunes of the Namib Desert.
