“This is a pretty and singular town; it lies at the foot of an enormous wall (the Table Mountain), which reaches into the clouds, and makes a most imposing barrier. Cape Town is a great inn, on the great highway to the east.”
These words of Charles Darwin, written in a letter to his sister, will resonate with you after spending a few days in this wonderful city. South Africa is also famous for its amazing wildlife and you will not be short of safari memories after visiting three of the country’s most renowned game reserves. For some, the highlight of these trips will no doubt be spotting the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino), but for others it may be seeing the remarkable birdlife or the majestic giraffe that stay longest in the memory.
A call at Mossel Bay allows for a journey along the scenic Garden Route into the Outeniqua Mountains. On this cruise you will also celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve at sea and visit the colonial town of Luderitz on Namibia’s remarkable Skeleton Coast.
