Cape to Cape: A Voyage from Cape Horn to Cape Town

Skip to


Extraordinary and unusual, an expedition from Cape to Cape has been the challenge and dream of many explorers and sailors. Colorful milestones line our route from Cape Horn at the tip of South America to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. Bookended by the beautiful cities of Buenos Aires and Cape Town, we will cross oceans and discover remote and rarely visited islands. See colossal colonies of king penguins on South Georgia and rare northern rockhopper penguins on Inaccessible Island. Learning about life on spectacular Tristan da Cunha will be one of many special experiences reserved for the adventurous few who voyage to the intriguing islands in the vast blue of the world’s oceans.

National Geographic Explorer: The Standard for Exploration

Built to handle deep swells and towering waves, National Geographic Explorer invites polar exploration while providing exceptional comfort.


Originally constructed to navigate Norway’s famed Hurtigruten, or Coastal Express, her high degree of maneuverability, ideal size, and platform for discovery made National Geographic Explorer a natural choice for addition to the Lindblad Expeditions fleet. Her rebuild drew on 50 years of pioneering expedition history and expertise.


Today, National Geographic Explorer is a purpose-built expedition ship. She is a fully stabilized, ice-class vessel, with an ice-reinforced hull, enabling her to navigate polar passages while providing comfort, elegance and a deep connection to the environment.
