South African Explorer

December 5, 2017 to December 21, 2017

Explore the dazzling golden beaches and multifaceted cultures of southern Africa as Oceania Cruises’ well-appointed Nautica takes you on a spectacular 15-night voyage. With Table Mountain as a dramatic backdrop, begin your luxury cruise in South Africa’s “Mother City,” Cape Town, a cosmopolitan gem boasting magnificent beaches, up-and-coming art galleries, and Victorian and Cape Dutch architecture. Delve into the rich maritime heritage of sun-kissed Mossel Bay, and then behold gorgeous panoramas at Richards Bay’s Lookout Point. Sail to Mozambique, where Maputo beckons with a lively waterfront; admire Durban’s colonial architecture and popular Golden Mile Beach; wander the unspoiled beaches of East London; and stroll past Port Elizabeth’s well-preserved historic buildings. Before returning to Cape Town, discover the scenic splendor of Walvis Bay, Namibia, a bird-watcher’s paradise with an impressive natural lagoon.
