CroisiEurope Cruises, Europe’s largest cruise line, is relaunching its land-and-water safari program, Travel to the Ends of the Earth, which includes time in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. The itinerary, unique to CroisiEurope, begins with one night in Johannesburg followed by a four-day stay in a 5-star lodge in Namibia, owned by CroisiEurope, on an island on the Zambezi River, followed by a one-of-a-kind four-day cruise on Lake Kariba, in the heart of Zimbabwe.
From the end of June through mid-October, guests can save over $1,200 per person on CroisiEurope’s Travel to the Ends of the Earth African land-and-water safari program.
Launched in 2018 with its first boat, the RV African Dream, this unique itinerary is now offered with a second boat, the RV Zimbabwean Dream. Intimate and elegant, these boats can accommodate 16 passengers in eight spacious cabins (194 square feet), two of which feature private terraces, with refined decor.
Cruising the tranquil waters of Lake Kariba, the cruise offers dreamlike landscapes that showcase the region’s fauna and flora. The boats’ compact size, minimalist exterior design, along with a sun deck and observation deck with 360-degree views make it possible for guests to cruise closer to nature.
CroisiEurope’s lodge, on the banks of the Zambezi, has eight luxurious, private huts, designed with local traditions and culture in mind. Each hut consists of a bedroom, a private lounge area, a large bathroom with shower and bathtub, and open onto a terrace with a private swimming pool.
Land and water safari excursions offer fascinating adventures to discover real life paradises. During the land safari in Chobe National Park, Botswana’s first nature reserve extending over 4,200 square miles, guests will observe Africa’s legendary wildlife. Then, along the southern shores of Lake Kariba, guests will go on a water safari of Matusadona Park to view giant crocodiles, buffaloes , hippopotamuses, and more. The itinerary ends with one of the most dazzling finales at Victoria Falls with a helicopter flight.
From Johannesburg to Victoria Falls, from Chobe National Park to Lake Kariba, from bluish dawn to sunset fires, between peaceful waves and rumbling smoke, wildlife and nature reserves, this trip promises to be one that will create memories at a great value.
