    The highlights of this cruise

    The EUROPA 2 will be waiting to welcome you in Port Louis, the bustling harbour city of Mauritius. The island is famous for the legendary beaches and a colourful underwater world, which you can enjoy on the first day. The next morning, Reunion awaits with its fantastic tropical landscapes and breathtaking mountains. Pay a visit to the volcano Piton de la Fournaise* and see the crater from a height of 2,300 m (7,546 ft). A helicopter flight* offers even more striking views of the densely forested areas of Salazie and the Bras de Caverne valley with its impressive waterfalls. After a relaxing day at sea, you’ll reach Madagascar, the world’s fourth-largest island. The unspoilt Port d’Ehoala (Taolanaro) – the “place of dreams” – is known for its beaches, lagoons and lush vegetation. A walk through Nahampoana Reserve* will introduce you not only to a variety of exotic plants but also lemurs, with a little luck. After another two days at sea, you’ll reach Richards Bay and the gateway to the breathtaking Zululand region, where thrilling safaris* await. One of the oldest animal reserves in South Africa, the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park* is home to leopards, lions, zebras and giraffes. The Zulu Nyala private game reserve* offers encounters with four of the big five. Alternatively, enjoy a boat ride along St Lucia’s river* and watch the crocodiles and hippos from a safe distance. Durban is another impressive place to visit. Nowhere else in South Africa has such a cosmopolitan mix of Indian, European and African cultures. Discover the Indian market, the Vasco da Gama clock or the Botanic Gardens on a tour* of the country’s third-largest city. Nature lovers can head for an active canopy adventure* in the green treetops of the exotic forests. Join a game drive from the authentic city of East London to various wildlife reserves*. With a little luck, you’ll spot giraffes, antelopes or even elephants. Fantastic beaches stretching 16 km (9.9 mi.) along the coast invite you to stroll along the sands in Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth). The prospect of over 25 game species and 200 types of bird in Kariega Game Reserve* is just as exciting as the approximately 400 colossal creatures in Addo Elephant National Park*. The “Bay of Mussels” lies on a coastal plateau set against the imposing backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains. An excursion heads from Mossel Bay along the famous Garden Route*. A scenic tour to Knysna* – followed by a boat tour* in the lagoon – also takes you along the most beautiful part of the route. Next, you’ll reach Cape Town, the highlight of your cruise. The symbiosis of big-city flair, the wonderful location on the ocean, the interesting history and the diverse hinterland all the way to the Cape of Good Hope are what makes South Africa’s capital so incomparable. Enjoy the view from Table Mountain* or the special wines of the Constantia wine estate*. You’ll spend one last night on board the EUROPA 2 to round off your cruise.

    * The itinerary depends on official approvals. The organised shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. All shore activities may be cancelled at short notice, depending on the developments at the time of the cruise. The approval for independent shore visits may also be withdrawn in some destinations. We work closely with the local authorities and agencies in relation to this. Further information on this will be provided with the preliminary information.

    Experience the world’s best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 1,490 per person
    Additional course: € 230 per person

    After some island-hopping in the Indian Ocean, your route takes you to the south-east coast of Africa, sailing from the breathtaking islands out in the ocean to the mainland known for its sensational fauna and exquisite wine. In recent decades, the entire region has gained a reputation for unique wildlife and has also become a hotspot for international golf design, meaning that this cruise to the south of the African continent is a true treat for golfing connoisseurs.

    Tue 01.02.2022 Port Louis, Mauritius – Mont Choisy Golf
    The 18-hole course in the north of the island is one of the newest in the country. Broad, well-formed fairways allow players of all abilities to obtain a good result. Only the very open holes could potentially be substantially affected by gusts from the Indian Ocean, which should definitely be taken into account in your game strategy.

    Wed 02.02.2022 Le Port (Reunion), France – Golf du Bassin Bleu – additional course
    This 18-hole golf course sits on a 400 m (1,312 ft) high plateau in the west of the island. From this vantage point, a round of golf offers a series of outstanding views of the beach resort of Saint Gilles and the bay below. Follow the course past the old, gnarled eucalyptus trees that beautifully fringe the straight holes.

    Tue 08.02.2022 Durban, South Africa – Durban Country Club
    The 18 holes that lie right on the Indian Ocean are counted among the best in the region. The course was established in 1922 and its playing areas are greatly influenced by the natural dune landscape. The twelfth hole with its raised green is still known as the “Prince of Wales” hole, named after the British prince who in 1924 needed 17 strokes to make his final putt.

    Fri 11.02.2022 Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), South Africa – Humewood Golf Club
    Since 1929, the rugged dune landscape of Algoa Bay has been home to a challenging links course layout. This traditional 18-hole course was practically key to establishing South Africa’s golfing tradition and has hosted many international tournaments. A beautiful place to play on the coast of the Indian Ocean.

    Sat 12.02.2022 Mossel Bay, South Africa – Pinnacle Point Golf Club
    You’d be forgiven for thinking the design of this 18-hole course devised by Peter Matkovich came from America. Six of the 18 holes run straight along the steep coastline of Pinnacle Point on the Indian Ocean. These holes alone are enough to provide everlasting memories for any golfer – a thoroughly mystical symbiosis of golfing and nature to round off this Golf & Cruise voyage in style.

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    • In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of 4.5 to 5 hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments, renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap of 36 or less to play on courses all over the world. 
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • The reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys - possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package. 
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic packages: 12 persons.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: 10 persons.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than three weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
