    1 Saturday, May 21, 2022 Cape Town, South Africa Embark 9:00 PM
    View of Cape Town, South Africa

    Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town was the first European settlement in South Africa, and today is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Pristine beaches, sheltered bays and secluded coves encircle the majestic might of Table Mountain, a World Heritage Site and home to some 8,500 species of flowers. Be sure to get to the top of the mountain by taking the Table Mountain Cableway and absorb the fascinating views.

    3 Monday, May 23, 2022 Luderitz, Namibia 7:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Luderitz, Namibia

    Luderitz is a quirky town lodged in one of the best harbours on the least hospitable coast of Africa. Its appeal as a town lies in the fact that little hasn’t changed since the early 20th century. There are many historic buildings in Luderitz including the Deutsche Afrika Bank, the Railway Station, the Old Post Office, and the Church on the rocks. Then there’s Goerke Haus situated on the wonderfully named Zeppelin Street, which was built from the proceeds of the diamond industry. Read more about Luderitz, Namibia

    4 Tuesday, May 24, 2022 Walvis Bay, Namibia 9:00 AM 7:00 PM
    View of Walvis Bay, Namibia

    Walvis Bay, Namibia, lies on the Atlantic coast where the desert dramatically meets the sea, and has long been a haven for sea vessels because of its natural deepwater harbour protected by the Pelican Point sand spit. This is the only harbour along the 1350km Namibian coast, hence important historically to vessels rounding the Cape of Good Hope, discovered in 1485. Variously coming under British, German and South African control, The Republic of Namibia became independent in 1990, and Walvis Bay came under its control in 1994. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of the country’s economy.

    View of São Tomé , Sao Tome and Principe

    São Tomé (Portuguese: “Saint Thomas”) is a port on the island of the same name, one of two that constitute the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, a small island nation in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Africa. In Africa’s second smallest country, this capital city is by far that nation's largest town, tranquil and pleasant with a relaxed, Portuguese-Creole atmosphere. After sundown it is dark with no street lights, so it's a good idea to try and cram as much activity into the day as possible. Tourists are only beginning to discover the island's capped volcanoes, thick jungle, and empty yet stunningly beautiful beaches. Read more about São Tomé , Sao Tome and Principe

    View of Takoradi, Ghana

    Takoradi is an important deepwater seaport situated on the gulf of Guinea in southern Ghana. Although older and larger, it actually combined with its sister city Sekondi in 1946, and today, known as Sekondi-Takoradi, is the capital of the Western Region of Ghana. It is also unofficially called the Oil City of Ghana, due to the massive oil discoveries in the western region of Ghana.

    View of Dakar, Senegal

    Dakar, the western-most city on the African mainland, is a very French capital and the largest city of Senegal. A feverish city that brims with life, together with its beautiful tree-lined boulevards, results in it having the most European atmosphere of any city on the continent.

    View of Lanzarote, Spain

    Lanzarote, the easternmost of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, lies about 125 km off the African coast. Due to its mild, dry climate it is regarded as a perfect year-round destination.

Amongst the many stunning volcanic features of Lanzarote is the longest Volcanic Tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel, which is over 7 km in length. Read more about Lanzarote, Spain
