Ancient and mysterious, the wonders of Africa have enchanted even the most experienced traveler – especially visitors to the beautiful and breathtaking city of Cape Town.
After a comfortable plane ride, taking advantage of a generously discounted Business Class Air upgrade, luxury travelers on the 14-night Atlantic Ocean Gems itinerary will arrive in Cape Town to discover that this city satisfies their every want, from museums to lush parks to impressive mountains to magnificent beaches…and, of course, outstanding wineries.
The heart of South Africa’s wine production lies 45 minutes from Cape Town in the Cape Winelands, home to the famous wineries of Stellenbosch. And as part of this voyage’s extraordinary value offers, all guests can experience sampling an endless variety of delicious wines as part of the FREE 3-Night Pre-Cruise Land Program: Winelands and Wildlife.
In addition, this program includes a visit to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a land of dramatic sea cliffs rich in wildlife and native flora. Guests on this program will also visit the most south-westerly tip of Africa known as Cape Point, where they will ride the Flying Dutchman Funicular up an incline of dense native vegetation to the lighthouse, which boasts the most powerful beacon on the South African coast.
Then, on the morning of embarkation, guests are transferred to the elegant Seven Seas Mariner®, for an unforgettable journey across the South Atlantic Ocean toward exciting Rio de Janeiro. Along the way, she will call on off-the-beaten-path places, such as Ludertiz and Walvis Bay in Namibia, as well as the U.K.’s incredible St. Helena, home to 699-step Jacob’s Ladder.
The true highlight of this experience is indulging in fine dining, being spoiled by personalized service and learning about history, culture and politics as part of The Smithsonian Collection by Smithsonian Journeys. For luxury travelers, this journey is simply too good to pass on.
