Cruise Description

28 Night Cruise sailing from Cape Town to Malaga aboard Boudicca.

Featuring an itinerary packed with wonderfully diverse and spectacularly beautiful destinations, this incredible cruise from Cape Town to Malaga via remote, rarely visited islands, stunning Atlantic archipelagos and captivating cities will be an adventure to remember.

Before you set sail, an evening and full day in South Africa’s mesmerising ‘Mother City’ will afford you time to marvel at iconic landmarks such as Table Mountain and Signal Hill; take in the incredible scenery at Cape Point; and encounter penguins at Boulders Beach. Then it’s on to the charming Namibian town of Lüderitz, gateway to the eerie ‘ghost town’ of Kolmanskop and the Garub waterhole. At Garub you can witness the native flora and fauna of the Namib Desert, including wild horses and springboks. The colossal dunes and arid landscapes of the Namib can also be discovered during your call into Walvis Bay. Alternatively you could choose to visit Walvis Bay’s beautiful natural lagoon, a haven for pink flamingos, sea birds and bottle-nosed dolphins. Up next are two beautiful British islands in the South Atlantic; secluded St Helena and Ascension. Stopping at Jamestown will offer you the chance to explore St Helena’s historic ties to Napoleon and capture astonishing views from Ladder Hill; while on Ascension Island, Georgetown is just a short distance from the verdant Green Mountain and glorious golden beaches.

Returning to the African mainland, Dakar – Senegal’s energetic capital – awaits you, before Boudicca heads for the enchanting Macaronesia archipelagos. During your day in Dakar you could venture to the haunting, UNESCO-listed island of Gorée; or tour to Lake Retba, aptly nicknamed ‘the Pink Lake’ due to its unusually coloured, micro-organism filled waters. You’ll be welcomed to Macaronesia by the delights of two gorgeous Cape Verde islands. Unearth bustling markets and interesting historic sites in Praia and Mindelo; or perhaps simply use these vibrant cities as your starting point for exploring the surrounding lush landscapes. In the Canaries, three beautiful islands are yours to explore. There’s Tenerife, with its ‘must-visit’ attractions such as the mysterious Pyramids of Güímar and magnificent Mount Teide; Gran Canaria, renowned for its soothing sunshine, inviting beaches and picturesque valleys; and the ‘pretty island’ of La Palma, home to the spectacular Caldera de Taburiente National Park and dramatic San Antonio Volcano. You’ll also visit Madeira, where chances to explore sweet-smelling botanical gardens and enjoy views from the Cabo Girão cliff are not to be missed, before sailing to Gibraltar and finally disembarking in delightful Malaga.

Highlights of this cruise:

Cape Town
Known for its lively waterfront and harbour, serene vineyards and impressive Cape Point National Park, Cape Town is a fascinating, must-visit destination with a deep history. Located on the shore of Table Bay, this picturesque city is best seen from the top of Table Mountain - accessible via cable car - where incredible views of the 'City Bowl' are found.

Luderitz, Namibia
Founded in 1883, Luderitz has a deep Colonial German heritage - exhibited by the colourful traditional buildings that still stand proudly within the town today. Nestled between the dusty Namib wilderness and the South Atlantic Coast, Luderitz is a picturesque town lined with azure waters filled with seals, penguins and dolphins.

Walvis Bay, Namibia
A magical destination for bird lovers, the honey hued sand plains of Walvis Bay are unusual in this part of the world as they are often dotted with flush pink flamingos and pelicans. With its calm, friendly atmosphere, Walvis Bay is perfect for those who love to bask in the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of busy cities.

Jamestown, St Helena
Picturesque Jamestown is the capital of St Helena Island, which is one of the world's most remote and isolated locations.

Dakar, Senegal
The exuberant capital of West Africa's Senegal - a thriving seaport and city.

Praia, Cape Verde
Loacted in Cape Verde, the volcanic archipelago of ten islands and five islets is a hidden gem. This destination was a Portuguese territory until independence in 1975, and is as unique and unspoilt as its remote location, 400 miles off the west coast of Senegal, would suggest.

The Cape Verdes were previously a Portuguese colony and there are many traces of this colonial heritage in Mindelo.

Santa Cruz, La Palma
Santa Cruz is undoubtedly one of the prettiest towns in the entire archipelago.

Funchal, Madeira
Located off the coast of Africa, Funchal has a timeless charm, delightfully enhanced by a benign climate that fills this 'floating garden' with the year-round colours and perfumes of subtropical flowers and fruit.

Dominated by 'the Rock', a towering 1,396 ft sentinel that guards the Straits, Gibraltar is a pretty, British-controlled territory with a distinctly familiar atmosphere. With helmeted policemen and British institutions such as Marks & Spencer, Gibraltar feels like a home from home, a little slice of Great Britain with a glorious Mediterranean climate.

In the fabulous city of Malaga – the birthplace of Picasso – visit the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress, try authentic Spanish tapas or take a tour to Granada and the Alhambra Palace. This 14th century structure, is Spain’s finest expression of Moorish art.
