West African Coast with Noble Caledonia


While we're following Steve Newman's voyage around the Cape Verde Islands with Noble Caledonia, here is a great offer for one of NC's rare West African cruises:

Join Noble Caledonia for a remarkable voyage as you sail along the coast of West Africa from Ghana to Cape Town, a journey which promises many contrasts from lush landscapes to the vast deserts of Namibia. 

In Ghana, the former seat of Britain’s colonial power in the Gold Coast, the cruise visits some of the forts and castles built by the earliest European visitors while in Benin, a former French colony known as the ‘Latin Quarter of Africa,’ passengers will get to visit the birthplace of Voodoo.

Further south, guests will spend time on the island nation of Sao Tome and Principe, famous for its natural beauty and birdlife. In Namibia, take to four-wheel-drive vehicles to explore the dunes and lagoons of Walvis Bay and watch the sky turn pink as tens of thousands of flamingos take flight.

The only way to arrive in Cape Town is by sea, and should you choose this trip the company has planned an extension to allow for a stay over Christmas in this most beautifully situated of all cities.

The 18-night cruise sails on December 6. Book before April 30 and save £400 per person!
