An epic journey from South Africa to Morocco
Immersive, in-depth Africa explorationExploring the countries of West Africa by ship offers an unrivaled experience of the natural and cultural wonders. The 148-guest National Geographic Explorer is an ideal platform for exploration that will enable you to:
Intriguing places and extraordinary peopleThe strange and beautiful hues of the Namib Desert. The mining ghost town of Kolmanskop,slowly reclaimed by dunes. Ghana’s lively markets. São Tomé’s idyllic beaches. Travel up a remote river to meet the chief of the Bagyeli “pygmy” people, bargain with merchants selling voodoo relics, plus visit a working tea plantation and several UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Each day is engaging and enlighteningIf the day’s plan calls for a visit to a local market, choose to stroll with your musicologist or historian for varied insights. Searching for marine life doesn’t sound interesting? No problem, stay back and spend an afternoon at the spa. Each day you’ll be offered different ways to understand the lives and cultures of the people you meet along the way. See more of what you’ll do.
Travel in excellent companyExplore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader and team of extraordinary historians, cultural specialists, and naturalists. Get shooting tips from your on board National Geographic photographer. Join your wellness specialist for an aerobic hike, or learn a bit about navigation while sharing the bridge with our captain. Guest speakers participate in the expedition, complementing our staff’s insights. And since music forms a key part of the culture, we’ve arranged for special musical performances in several places along the way, including some artists of international renown. Your team’s knowledge and passion for West Africa is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet the team.
