Meanwhile, trips to Port Elizabeth, East London, Durban, Richards Bay and Mossel Bay are your chance to delve into South Africa’s natural beauty and quintessentially African charm.

Carrying just 750 guests with 557 crew, quality service, décor and attention to detail is experienced at every turn. All guests have a their own private balcony to relax on and can even order dinner course by course there at no extra cost.

Days 1-3

Cape Town

Upon arrival in Cape Town, you will have three nights to explore this beautiful area. Give our knowledgeable travel experts a call to arrange your hotel.

A wonderful city on South Africa’s southwest coast, Cape Town is brimming in unforgettable moments. Relax on the beach amongst wild penguins on Boulders Beach, visit Robben Island, and board a cable car to the top of Table Mountain.

Day 4

Cape Town

You’ll have the day to keep exploring the city, before boarding the Seven Seas Explorer cruise ship at midday.

Day 5

At sea

Day five will be spent sailing across the Atlantic Ocean to your next destination. This is a great chance to enjoy the ship’s luxurious amenities, including a casino, a spa, a gorgeous pool deck, and gourmet restaurants.

Day 6

Luderitz, Namibia

Bright, colourful colonial buildings line the streets of this kooky coastal town. Choose from the array of shore excursions, including a ghost tour around Kolamskop, or a simple stroll along the waterfront adorned with Art Nouveau architecture and home to penguins, sharks, seals and dolphins.

Arrive: 8am
Depart: 5pm

Days 7-8

Walvis Bay, Namibia

Avid bird watchers will love this natural lagoon and deep-sea harbour – a flurry of fuchsia pink flamingos and white pelicans regularly flock to the bay, as well as thousands of other migrating species that fly here annually. The city is also a great gateway to fun desert-fuelled activities.

You’ll have two days to explore this marvellous destination, and there’s many shore excursions to fill your time with too. Embark on a half-day lagoon cruise to see the dolphins and seals, discover the Namib Desert via an off-road vehicle, or take a trip to the fascinatingly eerie Swakopmund.

Arrive: 10am
Depart: 3pm

Days 9-10

At sea

The next two days will be spent at sea. Day 9 will be a stretch across the Atlantic Ocean, whilst on Day 10 your journey will take you past the Cape of Good Hope – a jagged headland known for its dramatic scenery.

Day 11

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Your port of call today is Port Elizabeth, a picturesque city that marks the endpoint of the Garden Route. Nicknamed the ‘Friendly City’, you’re guaranteed a great time here, especially if you enjoy water sports, scuba diving, and whale watching.

There are many immersive shore excursions available here, including a trip to Addo Elephant Park, a game drive through the wildlife abundant Pumba Private Game Reserve, and a trip to the arts and craft centre.

Arrive: 12pm
Depart: 9pm

Day 12

East London, South Africa

Home to South Africa’s only river port and nestled along the Indian Ocean coast between the Buffalo and Nahoon rivers, East London is a vibrant city, and well-loved thanks to its sub-tropical climate and natural beauty. There’s plenty of nearby safari reserves too, ideal for a game drive brimming with wildlife sightings, including Mpongo Game Reserve, and Inkwenkwezi Game Reserve.

Arrive: 8am
Depart: 4pm

Day 13

Durban, South Africa

This charming sub-tropical city will give you a wonderful insight into Africa’s vibrant culture. This is your chance to discover the traditional lifestyle of the Zulu people, as well as exploring the Old Market Square, Golden Mile beachfront, and Gray Street Mosque.

Arrive: 11am
