Highlights of this cruise:
Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia and also the fourth most populous city in Australia. The Perth inner area radiates north and south of the Swan River on a flat coastal plain; bounded in by the Darling Scarp to the east and the Indian Ocean coastline in the west. It is popular for being a quiet, safe as well as a laid-back city.
Within easy walking and cycling distance; visitors can experience contemporary circus, fine crafts, original music and theatre, exciting galleries, museums as well as bookshops. Along with maritime history and extensive architectural conservation; the Arts have become a central part of Fremantle life where visitors can discover the past and present.
From Perth you can access the West Australian Outback, feed the dolphins at Monkey Mia or perhaps swim with the Gentle creatures of the deep; Whale Sharks. Alternatively visitors can experience the wines of Margaret River region south of Perth.
Durban is South Africa’s third-biggest city and reflects a mix of cultures; including a large Indian community as well as a new influx of Africans from countries to the north. Indians were brought out to KwaZulu-Natal in the 1860’s as indentured slaves to what was then the Colony of Natal. They have stayed and with them they brought their culinary delights and a variety of spices can be found in this city. In Durban’s Victoria Market there are many hawkers selling fine spices.
Durban Metro is where the proud Zulu nation meets East and West creating a wealth of influences to entertain and enthrall with traditional warrior dancers, mystic fire walkers and colonial heritage.
Traditionally Durban was well known for its conservatism when it came to the erection of public buildings; yet in the 1930’s the city threw off this mantle and embraced a new Art Deco. Numerous buildings, especially residential high rises, were erected in this new design. In many ways the art work on the Art Deco Buildings reflect a particular Durban identity with a strong emphasis on the city’s maritime background.
Cape Town and surrounding regions are one of the most beautiful regions in the world. The city is a rare cultural gem resulting from the amalgamation of Indonesian, French, Dutch, British and German settlers, the local Bushman and Hottentot tribes and the Bantu tribes from the north.
The impressive presence of Table Mountain; flanked by the legendary Devil’s Peak as well as historical Signal Hill; stands proudly above the city. Beautiful white sandy beaches along a peaceful coastline frame the Cape Peninsula.
Cape Town boasts a multitude of entertainment; ranging from outdoor activities and adventures in the sun to a roaring night life under neon signs. The vast range of shopping opportunities includes haggling with shopholders at Greenmarket Square Flea Market, as well as breezing through sophisticated and stylish shopping malls. The huge variety of restaurants reflects the multicultured history of the Cape and caters for everyone’s taste; from fast-food outlets and casual to the chic to the very elegant.
