AMAWaterways April 19 - 2013 : AmaWaterways' 2014 Africa Safaris & Wildlife Cruises

Award-winning river cruise line AmaWaterways proudly announces the release of its new 2014 Africa Safaris & Wildlife Cruise brochure. The brochure provides complete details about AmaWaterways’ one-of-a-kind program in Africa, with four different land safari itineraries – Discover Africa, Stars of South Africa, Rivers & Rails of Africa and Golden Trails of East Africa – all which include a wildlife river safari on Botswana’s Chobe River. AmaWaterways is the only river cruise company operating in Africa that offers both river and land-based safari programs.

Guests aboard AmaWaterways’ wildlife river cruise will enjoy a 4-night stay on the 28-passenger Zambezi Queen. As a modern “eco-ship,” the Zambezi Queen offers deluxe accommodations, fine dining and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, making it an excellent vantage point for game-viewing. Following the cruise, guests will spend two full days at the legendary Victoria Falls.

“Africa is a truly magical destination, and our goal was to convey some of the ambiance of a classic African safari with this beautiful brochure,” said AmaWaterways’ Executive Vice President and Co-Owner Kristin Karst. “Our African itineraries offer our guests up-close, unhurried and unforgettable wildlife viewing opportunities, as well as unique cultural encounters and other in-depth, authentic travel experiences.”

AmaWaterways’ cruise-and-land safari programs include the 12-day Discover Africa, the 15-day Rivers & Rails of Africa, the 16-day Stars of South Africa and the 18-day Golden Trails of East Africa. New enhancements to the 2014 program include the “Rivers & Rails of Africa” itinerary option, which features two nights aboard the Rovos Rail luxury train, as well as exclusive use of some of the most incredible accommodations in Africa (such as Singita Sweni Lodge and Singita Sabora Tented Camp, both of which have been ranked among the world’s “Top 10 Hotels” by Travel + Leisure). Other program highlights include city tours, wine tastings, morning and afternoon game drives, an excursion in a traditional dugout canoe, private game reserve picnics, a traditional African boma dinner onshore, a visit with local villagers and a guided tour of Victoria Falls.
