Fall 2017 arrives in South Africa

The MV World Odyssey arrived in Cape Town early Sunday morning to begin Fall 2017 stay in South Africa.

Arrival was pushed back after strong winds slowed down the journey from Ghana, but voyagers used the extra time studying, watching a musical theater performance, and spotting seals off the back deck. And thanks to the hard work of the crew, voyagers arrived with five full days to explore South Africa.

Voyagers will adventure through South Africa exploring game reserves and game lodges, learning about South African history by visiting Robben Island, and making a difference with various Impact Programs.

The MV World Odyssey will leave Cape Town, South Africa, and the Atlantic Ocean behind on October 12 and begin the seven-day sail to Mauritius.

Let’s hear it from Voyagers!

“We’re going on a sunrise hike to Table Mountain, and afterword we’re going in to town to converse with the locals and immerse ourselves a bit in the culture, and hopefully see some dancing. And then the third and fourth day we’re going to the Butler Scott game reserve, and we’re going to be going on a safari there and getting to see all the animals and talk to the teachers. And then the last day we’re either going to the beach, or maybe Robben Island.

“I’ve never been out of the country and I’m excited to get to know Cape Town and all the locals and go out on a safari and get more of the nature side of things. So it’s nice to get the whole experience and am very fortunate for this opportunity.”
