    “This was the first time we dropped anchor in Cape Town, South Africa: one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The iconic Table Mountain unfurled its majestic silhouette before us. As we headed to Durban, travelling along the South African coast, our guests were enthralled by the magical landscapes around us, with their wild, vibrant nature and steep cliffs plunging into the ocean.

    This voyage of discovery continued at the Addo Elephant National Park and the Pumba Private Game Reserve, specially selected by PONANT for our guests to enjoy the fascinating sight of the various animal species who have made this mystical savannah their home.

    Captivating, rare experiences both at sea and on land.”
