It's the kind of voyage books and films and history are made of - and that travel dream will be a reality for 450 curious travelers in 2024. For the first time ever, an ultra-luxury cruise line will sail around the entire continent of Africa. 
It's a 90-day, 17,000-mile exotic adventure visiting 44 marquee and off-the-beaten path ports and cities throughout 26 fascinating and unique countries. Immersion into ancient and recent history, exotic and wildly different landscapes, cultures, wildlife and lifestyles await the modern-day explorers sailing on this epic, all-African voyage.
The Seabourn Sojourn will depart Barcelona on November 30, 2024 on a small-ship, luxury cruise line's first-ever 'Grand Africa Voyage.'

Natural Wonders and Diverse Cultures

Imagine a single cruise calling in ports and destinations including Mediterranean gems like Alexandria, Cairo, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem; luscious, tropical paradises such as the Seychelles and Bom Bom Island; lands with breathtaking, diverse landscapes and wildlife such as Kenya, Madagascar and Zanzibar; and culturally rich destinations including Cape Town, Morocco and Mozambique.
In addition to renowned destinations, guests will discover African destinations off the beaten path, such as Luanda, the “Paris” of Africa, and Cape Verde, the “Gateway to the West.”

Once-in-a-lifetime Travel Experiences from Ship to Shore

Coastal cruising along breathtaking natural and urban scenery is just one facet of the ultra-luxury African circumnavigation.
Guests can explore Africa’s natural beauty via safari, hikes, scuba, snorkeling and other enriching cultural experiences, such as a visit to a camel milk farm, botanical gardens, living archaeological museums, and more.
In addition, guests can opt to take several multi-day journeys offering in-depth opportunities to explore treasured sites on land that cannot be accessed on single-day excursions from the ship, including a gorilla sanctuary, Victoria Falls and more.
Imagine a single, pan-Africa voyage that encompasses all these diverse experiences:
