Day 1

Cape Town, South Africa

On arrival in Cape Town, you will be transferred to the port to board the fantastic cruise ship Norwegian Sky.

Cape Town is both the legislative capital of South Africa and one of its most vibrant cities. Make your way to the top of Table Mountain for panoramic views of the surrounding city and harbour. Visit Robben Island to see the former site of the notorious former prison that held Nelson Mandela. Explore the manicured lawns and beautiful forest in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. Then stop by the V&A Waterfront for some shopping and entertainment.

Day 2

Mossel Bay, South Africa

Located along the Southern Cape, Mossel Bay is one of South Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. Sink your toes into the sands of Santos Beach. Hike up the trail to the Cape St. Blaize Lighthouse where the 19th century structure provides stunning views of the surrounding area. Learn about the earliest humans at the Point of Human Origins archaeological site. Then explore the more recent cultural heritage at the Bartolomeu Dias Museum.

Day 3

Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha), South Africa

Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) is one of South Africa’s major municipalities and bears the nickname “The Friendly City.” Relax on beautiful King’s Beach. Spot some big game at the Kragga Kamma Game Park nature reserve. Explore the rich history of South Africa’s Eastern Cape at the Donkin Reserve. Try local dishes like potjiekos, an indigenous stew cooked outdoors in a cast-iron pot.

Day 4

Durban, South Africa

With rich cultures, expansive beaches and historic landmarks intertwined within a hip, vibrant atmosphere, Durban boasts a seemingly endless array of possibilities. The port city is home to the largest population of Indians outside India and also to millions of Zulu (South Africa’s largest ethnic group). Visit an authentic Zulu village for a glimpse into their traditions. Whilst touring the city’s historic sites, including Mahatma Gandhi’s house and International Printing Press, you can enjoy delicious Indian cuisine at a local restaurant. Or choose to slow it down, way down, lounging on warm sands or taking a rickshaw ride along the Golden Mile – a nearly four-mile-long beachfront esplanade.

Day 5-6

Richards Bay, South Africa

Situated on the deepest natural harbour in the Southern Hemisphere, Richards Bay will thrill both nature and culture seekers. Spend the day walking through the Umlalazi Nature Reserve where you might see one of the rarest birds of pray in South Africa, the Palm-Nut vulture. Catch some sun or some waves at Aklantstrand Beach or learn about South African history and art at the Empangeni Museum.

Day 7-8

At Sea

Day 9

Nosy Be, Madagascar

Immerse yourself in Madasgascar’s largest and most popular destination, Nosy Be. This “Big Island” off the northwest coast is famous for its natural splendor and Ylang Ylang trees that make up a major part of the local economy. Spend the day hanging out with lemurs and chameleons at the Lokobe Reserve. Indulge in local cuisine like the diverse and delectable variations of Laoka. Then brave the highest peak on the island at Mont Lokobe or relax on the beaches of Befotaka Bay.

Day 10

Antsiranana, Madagascar

A gateway to Northern Madagascar, Antisiranana, once Diego Suarez, is at once a buzzing city and a sleepy one. Most residents nap from noon to 3pm and so normally bustling shops and restaurants are closed for a few hours around this time. But even when shops are shut, there’s plenty of architecture and natural beauty to wander through. Ravaged by several cyclones over the centuries, you’ll find several ruins of once-gorgeous French-style architecture. Outside the city, there are beaches to relax on and forests to explore. Madagascar is one of the most biodiverse places in Africa. See what animals you can spot!

Day 11

At Sea

Day 12

Pointe Des Galets, Reunion

With its lush rainforests and beaches bordering coral reefs, Pointe des Galets, Réunion will dazzle you with its natural splendor. This island in the Indian Ocean is a French department and is known for Piton de la Fournaise, a climbable active volcano that rises to 8,635 ft. When you’re not hiking through the Bélouve Forest or laying back on l’Hermitage beach, you can visit the Aquarium of Réunion or stop by the Jardin de l’Etat, a botanical garden opened in 1773.

Day 13-14

Port Louis, Mauritius

Your cruise comes to an end as you reach the Indian Ocean paradise of Mauritius. Your ship will stay in port overnight giving you a great opportunity to enjoy excursions or explore Port Louis.

Then stroll along the Caudan Waterfront to check out the shops, restaurants and famous Chinese Pagoda.

Following your three nights at the Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back to Dublin.
