    The highlights of this cruise

    Natural beauty, great history and pure zest for life: the many facets of Cape Town will inspire you at the start of your cruise. Visit the Cape Winelands*, South Africa’s oldest wine-growing region, or take off on a helicopter flight* over two oceans (weather permitting). From Mossel Bay, the legendary Garden Route takes you past vineyards, steep cliffs and beautiful beaches. Gqeberha beckons with the call of the wild: go in search of the big five in the Pumba Private Game Reserve* or keep an eye out for South Africa’s diverse wildlife from the water on a boat trip in a small group*. The EUROPA lies off Durban for two days – enough time to relax on Golden Mile beach, pay a visit to the lively monkeys in the Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary* or go on safari in the Tala Nature Reserve*. Port d’Ehoala is your starting point for exploring the natural spectacles of Madagascar. With a bit of luck, you may spot lemurs on a walk in the Nahampoana Reserve*. The most beautiful aspects of Reunion are revealed to you on a scenic tour*, which takes you past dense jungle to the spectacular volcanic craters of Piton de la Fournaise*. Before you disembark in Port Louis, you can savour the highlights of Mauritius once again to round off your trip. Discover the mangrove forests actively on a kayak tour* while a swimming trip* on Ile des Deux Cocos is the perfect occasion to reflect on the impressions of the past few days in an exotic setting.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change.
