Azamara Pursuit
Sailing: 21 November 2023

EXPLORE THE REMOTE GEMS OF WESTERN AFRICA AND BEYOND

Departing from exotic Gran Canaria, where a third of the island is under protection as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, we set sail for two blissful days at sea en route to Dakar, the capital of Senegal. Here, a late-night stay gives you plenty of time to experience the city’s beautiful colonial architecture and rich musical culture. The following day, we’ll arrive in Banjul, The Gambia, and head to Albert Market for an authentic taste of local life. 

With five more relaxing days at sea, there’s plenty of time to experience all the onboard amenities that the Azamara Pursuit has to offer. Treat yourself at Sanctum Spa, dine at one of our specialty restaurants, or take in a spectacular show as you prepare to explore your next exciting destination.

Next, it’s on to Jamestown, on the richly diverse Island of Saint Helena. A British Overseas territory with a history that spans five centuries, a full day on this 'Secret of the South Atlantic' offers thrilling adventures from visiting Napoleon's house in Longwood to meeting Jonathan—a 189-year old Tortoise—and the oldest living resident of the island. After a whirlwind day exploring the biodiversity of Saint Helena, settle in for an additional three days aboard your boutique hotel at sea while we sail towards Namibia’s Walvis Bay. 

An overnight stay in Walvis Bay gives you plenty of time to dive into its German colonial past and venture inland for a bucket-list-worthy African safari. From here, it’s just a short overnight sail to Luderitz, another hidden gem along the Namibian Coast that boasts stunning beaches, bountiful seafood, and a distinct colonial history which includes beer still brewed under Germany’s Beer Purity Law of 1516.

One final day at sea brings you to our final destination, captivating Cape Town, South Africa. With so much to explore, sip, and see from Kruger National Park and the Cape Winelands to the Cape of Good Hope, you might consider extending your stay here with one of our Cape Town post-voyage Land Programs.
