21-Night Western Africa Voyage on Azamara Journey
The adventures begin in captivating Cape Town, as we set sail for Namibia’s Walvis Bay. An overnight stay here gives you plenty of time to dive into its German colonial past and venture inland for a bucket-list worthy African safari. Enjoy two blissful days at sea while we make our way to Luanda, Angola’s shining capital. Discover an exciting mix of UNESCO World Heritage sites, meandering oceanside promenades, and ornate churches.
With an additional three days at sea, you can experience all that your boutique hotel at sea has to offer. Treat yourself at Sanctum Spa, dine at one of our specialty restaurants, or take in a spectacular show. Then awaken in Takoradi-Ghana’s beautiful laid-back beachside resort town with an exciting urban street-food scene.
Next, it’s on to the Ivory Coast and "the Paris of West Africa", Abidjan, with its beguiling mix of striking architecture, open-air markets, and distinct neighborhoods. We continue to make our way up the West African coast to Banjul, The Gambia, where you can head to Albert Market for an authentic taste of local life.
After two more relaxing days at sea, we arrive in the Canary Islands. With a late-night stay on Gran Canaria-where a third of the island is under protection as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve-you have lots of time to explore its many landscapes, climates, and attractions. On Tenerife, soak in the sun at one of its many pristine beaches or head to Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Following a stop in Madeira-home to picturesque villages, idyllic landscapes, and Madeira wine-the voyage ends in Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world.
