Seven Worlds, One Planet: Africa

Africa is home to the greatest wildlife gatherings on Earth. Though made up of vast land, wildlife face huge challenges here. Cheetahs hunt prey twice their size, hyena make epic treks to find food on the beach and aardvark dig deep to find food. Discover this and more on a cruise to Africa.

Cheetahs in North Africa

Cheetahs

The fastest land animal, cheetahs have long slender bodies covered with unique black spots scattered across their tan coats. Their bodies are aerodynamic enabling them to sprint at speeds of up to 60 to 70 mph.

Cheetahs can be found across Africa, primarily northern Africa, living in a variety of environments; dry forests, grasslands, open plains and desert regions. Female cheetahs tend to roam these environments alone whereas males typically live in groups made up of other male siblings.

Saga Cruises

Saga’s Flavours of North Africa voyage on Spirit of Discovery offers the fantastic opportunity to discover North Africa. Spend 18 nights on Saga Cruises newest addition, a ship that brings boutique luxury cruising to a whole new level.

Hyenas in North Africa

Hyenas

Famed scavengers, hyenas often dine on the leftovers of other predators. But despite this lazy trait, hyenas are actually very skilled hunters that can take down wildebeest or antelope as well as birds, lizards, snakes and insects.

Although hyenas are similar in appearance to dogs, they’re actually more closely related to cats. Spotted hyenas are the largest of all hyena species, growing up to 5.9 feet long and 2.6 feet tall (measured from paw to shoulder). On average, they weigh up to 86kg and unlike other species, spotted females are 10% heavier than males.

Holland America Line

Holland America Line’s Grand Africa voyage will take you on a 76 night discovery. Sailing from Boston, Massachusetts you can indulge in a choice of daily on board activities, relax in a spacious, elegantly appointed stateroom and enjoy evening entertainment, including Broadway-style shows and live music in many of the lounges.

Aardvark in South Africa

Aardvark

The aardvark (meaning “earth pig”) is a medium-sized, burrowing mammal native to Africa. Aardvarks are nocturnal and they spend much of their time in cool underground burrows that they have dug with their powerful feet and claws (that resemble small spades).

When looking at the appearance of an aardvark, a number of animal features spring to mind. Their bodies and long snout resemble pigs, their ears are rabbit like and their tails reminiscent of kangaroos.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Regent Seven Seas Cruises 6★ South Africa Immersion & Safari Experience is the ultimate in luxury. The 22 night voyage aboard Seven Seas Voyager will take you on a journey of discovery. On Day 21 you’ll visit Aquila Private Game Reserve where you’ll have the opportunity to see phenomenal animals in their natural environment.
