DESTINATION IN FOCUS: SOUTH AFRICA

Cruise holidays to southern Africa attract the true adventurer. With its game-rich savannahs, fine vineyards, cosmopolitan cities and architectural heritage of a great colonial past, there’s much more to South Africa than the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

On the coast, Cape Town is dramatically framed by Table Mountain. As you cruise into this rich land, a whole host of attractions will all vie for your attention. South Africa is truly astounding and leaves an imprint on its visitors forever.

DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA
At its founding in 1835, the city was named in honor of the then Governor of the Cape, Sir Benjamin D'Urban. Sugar cane transformed Durban into a vital port city, and its attractive parks and meticulously groomed gardens continue to testify to the land's richness. Today the city sprawls along the coast, its golden beaches hugging the blue Indian Ocean.

The summer resort of Transvaalers is your gateway to some of South Africa’s greatest attractions. Discover the breathtaking Valley of a Thousand Hills, the Kingdom of the Zulu.

Or set out along The Garden Route, a region of high mountains, lush forests, sun drenched beaches and quaint little towns, an explorer’s dream and undoubtedly one of South Africa’s premier sights.

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
Nestled at the foot of Table Mountain and flanked by Devil's Peak and Lion's Head, Cape Town is known by South Africans simply as 'the Cape,' an acknowledgment of its uniqueness and its status as the Mother City. The first area to be settled by Europeans in the 17th century, it is today a major seaport and the legislative capital of South Africa.

The feeling here is not African but cosmopolitan, and a sense of history remains. The oldest existing building is the Castle of Good Hope, dating from 1697. Around its gardens are located the most important cultural and historic buildings of the city.

Cape Town is relatively isolated from the rest of South Africa. The Cape of Good Hope, where the waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans mingle, is some 25 miles (40km) to the south. The “Mother City” has welcomed sailors since Portuguese navigators first rounded the Cape of Good Hope in the 15th century. Not only is it one of the most beautiful cities in the world – tucked into the arms of a broad bay, beneath Table Mountain – but it is also surrounded by wild beaches, rugged mountains and bucolic vineyards.

On a fine day you can ride the cable car to the summit of massive, flat-topped Table Mountain, with majestic Cape Town at your feet and the Cape of Good Hope in the distance.  Less than an hour away, you can go wine tasting at Stellenbosch, famous for its Cape Dutch architecture and fine estate wines.
