Cruise Information

Kenya Safari and Seychelles Aboard the M/Y PEGASUS

Kenya: one of the world’s most esteemed and exciting safari destinations, with endless grassy plains, vast sparkling lakes, rugged mountain ranges, and an abundance of species found nowhere else on earth. Travel to the east coast of Africa to experience a land once traversed by the earliest of humanity.

Under British colonial rule until 1963, Kenya is now a bourgeoning republic, roughly the size of Texas. Despite its size, Kenya is home to a drastically diverse landscape, from the lush coastline to the snow-tipped mountain ranges. The Great Rift Valley, created by a fissure in the earth’s crust, is lined with volcanoes, such as the dormant Mount Longono, and dotted with lakes, such as glistening Lake Nakuru. But even with such a remarkable and diverse landscape, Kenya is most often visited due to its unrivalled concentration of wildlife. Here, travelers on safari have a chance to see the Big Five of Africa: lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes, and rhinoceroses. In the Maasai Mara National Reserve, lucky spectators have a chance to witness the annual wildebeest migration, in which massive numbers of wildebeests, zebras, gazelles and impalas cross the Mara River for better grazing grounds. Bird enthusiasts will be ecstatic to visit Lake Nakuru National Park, where the elegant flamingo and about 450 species of birds call home. Wherever your interests may lie, an unforgettable experience will be had by all who choose to venture into this country of warm people, beautiful scenery, and untamed wilderness.


Seychelles: the epitome of island paradise, with lush green jungles, powdery white sand beaches, and pristine turquoise waters. Journey across the Indian Ocean to experience the legendary beauty of this modern day Garden of Eden.

Seychelles is a remote archipelago off the east coast of Africa made up of 115 islands, with a population of approximately 90,000. First settled by the French in 1770, the islands were eventually ceded to Britain in 1814 and did not gain independence until 1976. Under British colonial rule, plantations were established on the islands, producing goods such as coconuts, cotton, and sugar cane. Despite the remote location, or perhaps because of it, the Seychelles has attracted people from all over world since its discovery. This has led to a melting pot nation, where a multitude of races and religions are represented and reside harmoniously. The year round balmy weather, unique culture, breathtaking scenery, and collection of rare species make Seychelles an unparalleled destination you won’t want to miss.
