Crystal Cruises’ newest Boutique Adventure includes a hands-on “Rhino Conservation Experience” in Africa. Offered with Crystal Serenity’s March 10 voyage from Singapore to Cape Town, the excursion makes guests a part of the local tracking and protection efforts that are fighting to keep the animal from extinction.
Crystal’s “Rhino Conservation Experience” is available only to guests also participating in Crystal’s mid-cruise, off-ship Overland Adventure to the Phinda Private Game Reserve. The Overland Adventure, which departs from Durban and returns to Port Elizabeth, has two nights of luxury accommodations and game drives in search of lions, elephants, buffalo and leopards. The line’s Boutique Adventure collection, first introduced in January, features shoreside experiences that are limited in participation and not available with any other cruise line.
The 21-day sailing departs Singapore for Jakarta, Indonesia; Mauritius/Port Louis, Republic of Mauritius; Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town (overnight), South Africa, with a two-night, inclusive pre-cruise program to Bangkok and Cambodia beginning on March 7. Cruise-only fares start at $7,520 per person if booked by January 3, 2014. The “Rhino Conservation Experience” is $1,287 per person.
