Seabourn Sojourn

09 May, 2023

Seabourn has announced its first-ever “Grand Africa Voyage” departing November 30, 2024 aboard Seabourn Sojourn. The ship will circumnavigate the continent and sail more than 17,000 miles during a 90-day roundtrip adventure from Barcelona. The journey will visit 44 ports and cities throughout 26 countries, with six overnight stays on the itinerary. The itinerary is now open for bookings.

Guests on the “Grand Africa Voyage” can explore Africa via safari, hikes, scuba dives, snorkeling and cultural experiences, including a visit to a camel milk farm, botanical gardens, living archeological museums and more. Additionally, several optional multi-day “Seabourn Journeys” will be available at various destinations, offering in-depth opportunities to explore sites on land that cannot be accessed on single-day excursions from the ship, including a gorilla sanctuary, Victoria Falls and more.

Some of the destinations on the “Grand Africa Voyage” include:

  • Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt – Guests will spend an evening in Cairo, Egypt’s second-largest city and epicenter of cultural and historical significance, offering a blend of ancient landmarks, architecture and vibrant markets. Guests will have the option to join an excursion to see the Pyramids at Giza.
  • Safaga (Luxor), Egypt – Located on the Egyptian side of the Red Sea, Safaga is the gateway to some of Egypt’s noteworthy destinations: Luxor, Karnak and Thebes. Luxor has often been called the world’s greatest open-air museum.
  • Mombasa, Kenya – Guests can experience Kenya’s wildlife up close in Mombasa with overnight “Seabourn Journeys,” including Tsavo National Park Safaris, a Masai Mara National Reserve Safari and a Rwanda Gorilla Trek. Mombasa, a coastal city with beautiful beaches, warm climate, rich history and delicious cuisine, has a blend of African, Arabic and European cultures.
  • Cape Town, South Africa – Known as the “Mother City” of South Africa, Cape Town is known for Table Mountain, its beaches and a cultural heritage that reflects its blend of African, European and Asian influences. It’s also a hub for adventure tourism, offering a range of thrilling outdoor activities, including catamaran sailing, kayaking and more.
  • Bom Bom Island, Sao Tome & Principe – Seabourn guests will enjoy a beach BBQ on Bom Bom Island, enjoying the beaches, tropical forests and clear waters.
  • Casablanca, Morocco – Guests will spend an evening in Casablanca, the economic hub of Morocco. With its bustling souks, stunning architecture and vibrant nightlife, it offers visitors a unique and authentic taste of Moroccan life, steeped in history, culture and tradition.

Guests who book the full 90-day “Grand Africa Voyage” will receive a range of complimentary benefits and amenities, including:

  • Gala Bon Voyage dinner & overnight hotel stay at Hotel Majestic prior to departure in Barcelona
