January 16 - February 10, 2016

Starting with a two-night stay on board Aegean Odyssey in Cape Town, this itinerary will take you from the magnificent flora and fauna of Africa to the sandy beaches of the Maldives and the lush plantations of Sri Lanka. So this cruise will give you the opportunity to watch big game, shop in spice markets, swim in crystal clear waters and enjoy a barbeque party on the beach.

After Cape Town and your safari adventures at the Addo Elephant Park and Hluhluwe and St Lucia Game Reserves, Aegean Odyssey cruises into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean on the way to Mayotte. It is then on to the Seychelles including the island of La Digue where you can dine on local seafood and stroll along perfect beaches. Then sail to a true desert island paradise, the Maldives. The final destination is the island of Sri Lanka and a two-night stay in one of Colombo’s top hotels. Here you will experience the legacy of Colombo's colonial history and the city’s more modern cosmopolitan side.
