South African Explorer

South African Explorer

Experience the sun-filled, exotic attractions of South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia. Depart from Cape Town and sail to Mossel Bay, a town that experiences more than three hundred sunshine-filled days a year. Continue to Richards Bay, which has one of South Africa’s largest harbors, to take in gorgeous panoramic views of the sea, or consider visiting a nearby game reserve. Acacia-lined avenues and a charming waterfront draw visitors to Maputo, while British Colonial architecture reigns in Durban. The city’s promenade, the Golden Mile, offers a perfect location to enjoy the subtropical climate before continuing onward to East London, revered for its unspoiled beaches. Finally, visit the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, home to beautiful wildlife sanctuaries, and cruise to the huge natural lagoon of Walvis Bay. Although rimmed by the inhospitable Namib Desert, the bay attracts hundreds of thousands of birds, including flamingos, pelicans, and migratory species.
