Your adventure starts in Johannesburg, the pulse of South Africa, with an overnight stay. You will then experience an amazing three-night Victoria Falls escape with tours.

Then, enjoy another two nights in Johannesburg to take in the historic sights and inner-city attractions. Before, you will go on a thrilling, three-night safari adventure in Pilanesberg National Park in search of the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo and rhino – while staying at a five-star safari game lodge.

You will then fly to Cape Town where you will stay for two nights taking in the wonders of the city. In Cape Town you will embark the regal Queen Mary 2 for an incredible 16-night gentle cruise sailing through the sparkling waters of Reunion Island and Mauritius as Queen Mary 2 makes its way down to Australia.

What’s onboard Queen Mary 2?

Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 is the most magnificent of all ocean liners. Built for regal sailing that harks back to the Golden Era of sailing.

The ship radiates sheer opulence, charm and glamour with multiple dining options served on classic Wedgwood china and Waterford crystal. Enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters. Dine like a Queen on classic British and French cuisine at Britannia and Grills restaurants. Here you will savour the finest premium steals at The Verandah. Or, taste a range of mouth-watering dishes at Kings Court buffet.

There’s never a dull moment when picking what to do in-between meals. There’s the spectacular show at the plantetarium, learn how to fence, play Cunard’s traditional games of shuffleboard and deck quoits or chill out at the Mareel Spa with a self-indulgent massage.

And after a sumptuous dinner, watch a dazzling West End-style of productions at the Royal Court Theatre. Or, dance to the pulsating beat of the ship’s sophisticated G32 nightclub.

On ocean days, you can choose to relax and indulge in a massage at the spa, watch the amazing show at the planetarium, play a spot of lawn bowls or deck games. Alternatively you can just curl up in a leather armchair and read a book at the library.

Where you will be sailing

When Queen Mary 2 calls at Durban, South Africa’s second largest city, take a gentle stroll along the esplanade at Durban’s Golden Mile stretch of beach or you can soak up the buzz of the city on the lively Florida Road with its café culture and galleries. You can also learn about the Africa’s native Zulu and Afro-Indian heritage as more Indians live in Durham than any other country outside India itself.

Sailing into the sparkling waters of Reunion Island between Madagascar and Mauritius, you will be blown away by the sandy beaches, vivid coral reefs and impressive volcanoes. The island blends an interesting fusion of French, Indian, African and Chinese cultures and cuisine.

At Port Louis, the gateway to idyllic Mauritius you will face amazing white sandy beaches, Mykonos-blue, clear waters and pristine coral reefs. Here you can swim, snorkel amongst multi-coloured fish or simply laze by the beach.

Over the next few days, you will sail the oceans with many activities to distract you from lazing by the Pavillion pool, enjoying the Jacuzzi with a glass of bubbles in hand or practise your golf swings at the nets.

When Queen Mary 2 sails into Fremantle in Western Australia you will disembark for your journey home after an unforgettable and memorable holiday never to be repeated.
