Indian Ocean Safari
For most activities, a relatively low level of exertion is required. While the ship will sometimes dock for a dry landing, you will need to climb into and out of Zodiacs for certain excursions ashore and for some snorkeling and most diving activities. Staff and crew will be on hand to assist. On shore excursions, you must be able to walk moderate distances in villages, towns, forests, and on beaches, occasionally over rough terrain. Opportunities will be available for leisurely strolls, as well as optional hikes requiring more exertion. Birders may participate in ornithological excursions. Our expedition staff and renowned lecture team of naturalists and historians will accompany you throughout shore and afloat. Average daily temperatures will be in the 80s F, with the possibility of occasional afternoon showers. A complete list of recommended clothing, essentials to bring, and a suggested reading list will be mailed to you approximately four months prior to departure. Exact ship arrival times are often dependent upon winds and currents. Participants will most enjoy these remarkable destinations if they travel with a spirit of adventure and flexibility.
