Day 1 - Colombo, Sri Lanka

Arrive: Sat 08 April 2023

Sri Lanka’s capital until recent times, this fascinating city is filled with an intriguing blend of cosmopolitan buildings and ancient temples.

The island of Malé (pronounced "maaley") is among the largest of the group known as the Maldives. It is a tiny dot of land covering an area of approximately one square mile with a population of over 70,000. Throughout history, it has been this country's political, business and cultural center. Malé lies to the north, among the 1,100 miniscule coral islets of the Maldives' archipelago. Sugar-white beaches are sanctuary to countless sea birds, while coral reefs host an endless variety of exotic fish and marine life.

Day 8 - Mahe

Arrive: Sat 15 April 2023 at 08:00

The capital city of Victoria lies on Mahé, the largest of the 115 Seychelles islands. These are the luxuriant garden jewels of the Indian Ocean where exotic trees edge beaches of fine white sand. Mahé is a mere 17 miles long and less than five miles wide. Coconut plantations surround its majestic granite peaks which rise to a height of 3,000 feet. Mahé was uninhabited until the French arrived in 1768, and today this culture remains predominant despite over 180 years of British rule. Although Victoria itself contains somewhat limited attractions, there is a certain quaint charm in the tin roofs and board verandas of its architecture. The true magnificence of the Seychelles lies beyond city limits, as you explore these islands' stunning natural beauty.

Off the coast of Tanzania lies Zanzibar, an island imbued with exotic local spices and fruits, such as clove, lemon grass, jackfruit and mango. Allow the aroma of these enticing scents to guide you as you explore this fascinating town, from its intricately carved doors and grand palaces, to the formidable forts and sugar-white beaches. Peruse the market for a lovely keepsake of this unique place, or simply enjoy a cool drink in Old Stone Town.

Arrive: Fri 21 April 2023 at 06:00

Mombasa lies on a coral island linked to the mainland by causeways. This is Kenya's second-largest city and its chief port. A long and complex history surrounds this bustling center. By the end of the 15th century, it was a well-established part of the trade routes and was much coveted by the Portuguese, who aimed to control the East's sources of wealth. Foreigners have frequented Mombasa and its harbor for hundreds of years. Glimpsed from the winding streets of Old Town, it is a city cloaked in Middle Eastern mystery. Portuguese influence lingers on, while the intermingling of African, Arab and Indian cultures provides an exotic and colorful atmosphere. White beaches border ink-blue Indian Ocean waters along the adjacent coast. However, most visitors find the allure of Kenya's vast interior game reserves irresistible.
