Discovering the Beauty of Africa with Ama Waterways

Safari experience in Africa

Africa is a continent filled with breathtaking landscapes, unique cultures, and some of the most awe-inspiring wildlife on the planet. Recently, I had the pleasure of exploring this incredible continent on a cruise with Ama Waterways, and I was blown away by the beauty that I discovered along the way.


Our itinerary gave us the opportunity to see some of the most stunning destinations in Africa, including the vibrant city of Cape Town, the natural wonder of Victoria Falls, and the remote wilderness of Chobe National Park. Each destination offered something completely unique, from the bustling energy of Cape Town’s waterfront to the serene beauty of Victoria Falls.

Cultural Experiences

One of the things that stood out to me most on this trip was the rich cultural experiences that we had. We had the opportunity to meet and interact with locals in each of the destinations we visited, learning about their traditions, music, and food. We even had a chance to learn some traditional dance moves and participate with the Masubia people of the Kasenu Village!

Wildlife Encounters

Of course, no trip to Africa would be complete without some wildlife encounters, and we were lucky enough to have some truly unforgettable experiences. On a safari in Chobe National Park, we saw herds of elephants, giraffes, lions, and more. We also had the chance to spot some of the smaller wildlife, like meerkats and warthogs, up close and personal.

Unique Experiences

Finally, what made this trip truly unforgettable were the unique experiences that we had during our trip. From a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls and the Zambezi National Park to an evening spent stargazing on the Chobe River, we were constantly amazed by the attention to detail and thoughtfulness that went into every aspect of the trip.


Overall, this African itinerary with Ama Waterways was a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. I came away with a newfound appreciation for the incredible beauty, rich culture, and diverse wildlife that can be found on this amazing continent. This would be an incredible opportunity to travel as a group with your friends and family as the ship only has 14 rooms. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone looking for a truly unique and unforgettable travel experience.
