Africa continues to trend as a bucket list travel destination, and Emerald Cruises is hopping onboard with its 16-day Safari and The Seychelles, a mix of pristine beaches with a photo-safari viewing some of the world’s wildest creatures. The voyage takes place on the swanky 100-guest Emerald Azzura, with departures from December 2024 through February 2025.

Emerald Azzura’s Excellent Adventure

Talk about surf and turf: the Safari and The Seychelles starts out in Kenya with two nights at the Samburu Game Reserve, where your clients will enjoy three guided safari drives—think white rhinos, zebras, giraffes, elephants and more. There’s an overnight at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lake Nakuru National Park, renowned for being one of the country’s best game viewing spots. After a stop at Thompson Falls, your clients go on to spend three nights at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, where they’ll get up close and personal with the community and its culture, as well as have the chance to see the Big Five plus other superstars as the black-maned lion, Cape buffalo, wildebeest, the savanna elephant, and others. Want more? How about a hot air balloon ride to take it all in from the skies? Check.

After all that excitement and adrenaline that comes from a safari, your clients can sashay onto Emerald Azzura and get to exploring the Seychelles and the Indian Ocean. Stops include Sainte Anne Island and its marine national park all the way to Cousin Island, a favorite of birdwatchers, the unspoiled Curieuse and Praslin for some unparalleled snorkeling.

This itinerary is one of many new sailings on Emerald Cruises’ newest brochure, which collects adventures on twin ships Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Red, and Caribbean seas, that range from 15 to 24 days.
