Africa: Drink It In
With game drives to spot the fabled Big 5, Xhose and Zulu culture, miles of white sandy beaches and kaleidoscopic underwater life, this voyage from Cape Town to Zanzibar packs in more African life than you could ever imagine.

Three days in Aldabra, a global diversity hotspot and UNESCO Marine World Heritage Site, make this trip a life changing experience.

•Take a cultural deep dive in these five countries and marvel at the diverse peoples who have forged this colorful and vibrant region of southern and eastern Africa.
• If you like comfort and fine dining along with your African adventure, this classic luxury expedition ship with expert guiding is for you.
