South Africa: From Maputo to Cape Town 8-Day Expedition Cruise
Explore the best of South Africa from the comfort of a boutique expedition ship as it visits ports along the Indian Ocean on our South Africa Discovery cruise. We begin our journey in the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique, starting in the capital, Maputo, exploring its culture before visiting pristine beaches. Our first venture on South African shores gives us the possibility to see rare bird species such as the cuckoo hawk and pygmy goose make their home in the wetlands. Then it’s time for the big game reserves in the hope of spotting hippos, crocodiles, rhinos, cheetahs, and the world’s largest mammal, elephants. Our voyage finishes in Cape Town. Between safaris, swimming, and sandy beaches, you’ll be treated to incredible food, meet locals, and discover the architecture that’s been heavily influenced by all the cultures that make this place home. Come aboard our cultural cruise of South Africa, and feel inspired by this incredible country.
