Encounter outstanding wildlife and rare flora and fauna

The vivid beauty and breathtaking wildness of East Africa have enchanted explorers for centuries. Enter a world native to the legendary Big Five, hippos peer out of an untouched estuarian lake, and lemurs chatter in the forest canopy. On an epic adventure cruising along the Indian Ocean, explore cosmopolitan Cape Town, meet Zulu villagers, and marvel at playful lemurs and the otherworldly baobab trees of Madagascar. In the atmospheric narrow, winding streets of Zanzibar, learn about the island’s European, Arab, Indian, and Chinese influences. Rare and exciting flora like King Protea and ylang-ylang trees add to the beauty of natural landscapes from sheer cliffs to wide swathes of undeveloped beach.
