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. Leaving South Africa’s famous landscape, sail up the continent’s east coast via Madagascar and experience a beautiful tapestry of land and sea—from mountains and grasslands to mangroves and fringing coral reefs. Three days in Aldabra, a global diversity hotspot and UNESCO Marine World Heritage Site, make this trip a life changing experience.
