Namibia & Mid-Atlantic Expedition
There are few places like the coast of South Africa and the intriguing islands that lie well off the mainland in the middle of the Atlantic. The World’s Expedition Team helped Residents & Guests to fully immerse themselves in the scenic beauty and rich biodiversity of this captivating region. From Cape Town, the Ship traveled along the nutrient- and marine-life-rich Benguela Current toward Namibia, where Residents & Guests observed Cape fur seals, trudged through the sand in the ghost town of Kolmanskop, and dined al fresco beneath the desert stars. Then it was on to two of the most remote destinations on the planet – St. Helena and Ascension – both British Overseas Territories that provided ample opportunity for hiking and discovering abundant wildlife, including nesting sea turtles. A four-day Journey northwest provided time to prepare for the volcanic islands and fascinating history of Cape Verde before ending this memorable Expedition in Las Palmas.
