With the glittering azure blue seas around you and the scent of vanilla and ylang-ylang in the air, you will feel as though you have reached a little corner of paradise!

We compile our off-shore excursions with great care, and this enchanting stopover during your South African cruise vacation on one of our ships is sure to delight all the senses. 

Our South Africa cruises balance a heady blend of big-city excitement with quiet tropical relaxation.

Nosy Be is an island located just off the northwest coast of Madagascar and the country’s largest and busiest tourist resort with a population of 60,000, it is a key stop-over destination along your itinerary.

With an agreeable, balmy and pleasant climate, perfume crops flourish in abundance here and you will feel yourself unwind as you relax into this picture-postcard haven of tranquillity.

Famous for diving and a popular spot with honeymooners, Nosy Be really has something for everyone. Nature-lovers, families and children of all ages will delight in visiting the protected lemurs, furry friends that are native to this area.

From the local vanilla fields to the furry faces of the local lemurs, we truly don’t know which is sweeter!
