South Africa and Namibia by Sea

Natural Treasures and Human Accomplishments
Mon, February 14, 2011 - Mon, February 28, 2011

Round the Cape of Good Hope with us aboard the elegant 114-guest Corinthian IIfrom Mozambique's attractive capital of Maputo on to South Africa's Table Mountain, Stellenbosch wine country, and wildlife preserves (where many of "the big five" can be seen). Experience Namibia's serene deserts, where you will enjoy a private dinner in the dunes.

Explore no fewer than five game reserves and national parks to admire South Africa's unbelievable variety of terrain and creatures. Marvel at the 150,000 birds flying their way across Walvis Bay, and travel through Namibia's Art Nouveau-influenced towns to abandoned diamond mines. From high savannah plateaus with giraffes and wildebeest to mountain wildernesses teeming with flowers and bird life, the transition from rugged forests to desert dunes will astonish and delight.

Accompanying us on the voyage will be guest lecturer Paul A. Volcker, Chairman of the President's Economic Advisory Board, as well as other speakers who will all enhance your experience via discussions on the economics, politics, history, culture, and nature of this incredible region. An optional post-trip extension to Victoria Falls is available.
