If you are going to Africa, go in style. For those looking for a serious helping of adventure, AmaWaterways is offering an excitement-filled African safari river cruise starting this summer. Spend 16 to 19 days gazing at herds of zebras, grazing elephants and rivers bursting with exotic wildlife – and, of course, kicking it in luxurious fashion.
You will get up close and personal with a wide array of exotic animals while aboard the luxurious Zambezi Queen, a 28-passenger vessel expressly created for safari river cruising to give you the best sightseeing possible.
“Africa is a popular destination spot that provides so many natural activities,” said AmaWaterways’ executive vice president and co-owner Kristin Karst. “AmaWaterways is always looking for ways to wow our guests and the safari itineraries do not disappoint. Africa’s diverse wildlife, sweeping plains and towering peaks make it the perfect place for an exciting vacation.”
Journey into some of Africa’s most interesting and well-known locales, such as South Africa, Botswana, Kenya and Tanzania, and experience them like never before. Highlighted on the hit television show “Jack Hanna’s Into The Wild,” the trip boasts three different options: the 16-day Stars of Africa, the 16-day African Sunsets and the 19-day Golden Trails of Africa.
Whichever you choose, expect an extraordinary experience as you participate in beach picnics, tours of Victoria Falls, local wine tours, trips to local museums such as the Ngorongoro Archaeological Museum, evening sky presentations and more. Soak up the local culture by catching some tribal dancing and visiting the surrounding villages. Take the adventure up another notch with tiger fishing and wild game drives.
“Anyone that’s looking to cross something off a bucket list or a way to travel in Africa, this is the way to go,” said Jack Hanna, travel host. “From dining to the resting area to the accommodations and the wonderful staff and riverboat guides that get you up close to the wildlife, everything is top-notch and beyond five star. I’ve done this for 26 years now and this has been the epitome for me and my family to be on this magnificent vessel.”
Since its inception in 2002, AmaWaterways has become one of the leading river cruise lines, recognized for its custom-made ships, premier service and incredible range of complimentary amenities. The cruise line also offers trips to other destinations scattered throughout Europe, Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia.
