Azamara to return to South Africa this winter

Brand will offer six back-to-back voyages starting in January 2022

Azamara is set to return to South Africa this winter as the country reopens for international cruising.

Azamara Pursuit will set sail from January to March 2022 with six back-to-back voyages, including five country-intensive itineraries.

The boutique cruise line will resume land tours with luxury safari operator Micato Safaris.

Land tour highlights include a five-night Greater Kruger National Park Safari and Winelands itinerary, and a five-night Victoria Falls and Chobe Game Park Safari, both of which can be booked pre- or post-cruise.

Azamara’s South African voyages will also feature a 12-night Golf Voyage, including five rounds of golf.

Shore excursions will be operated by Abercrombie & Kent’s cruise division, Akorn, and will include a 4×4 drive through the African bushveld at Thula Thula game reserve in KwaZulu-Natal, home to elephants, rhinos, leopards, giraffes, zebras, buffalo, birds and more.

Azamara president Carol Cabezas said: “A trip to Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the kind of travel Azamara is known for, which is why I am so pleased to confirm our guests are now welcome back to South Africa following the reopening of its ports to international cruising.”

She added: “Once again, Micato Safaris will deliver unrivalled pre- and post-cruise land programmes, as they share Azamara’s love of travel, exploration and value of creating one-of-a-kind experiences for travellers.”

Dennis Pinto, Micato managing director, said: “We have crafted a series of unique custom programmes which showcase the very best of Southern Africa for Azamara’s discerning passengers.”
