Azamara Expands World Wildlife Fund Partnership

Azamara has announce an expanded partnership with the World Wildlife Fund, the world's leading conservation organization, through a program called People to Planet Voyages and Excursions.  Both are such exciting additions I can only hope I will have the chance to experience them for myself!

People to Planet Voyages: Launching in early 2021, the cruise line will offer six conservation-themed voyages in South Africa. With the intention of inspiring personal commitment and environmental conservation, onboard programming will feature WWF experts discussing topics such as sustainable agriculture, conservation champion wine farms, water resources, food elements, sustainability and wildlife. In addition, professionals will be integrated into a multitude of activities onboard, which range from hosting an interactive Chef's table – where guests can savor the intimate unforgettable journey through five beautifully presented South Africa themed dishes, to conducting WWF-themed trivia sessions throughout the voyage. Paying homage to Azamara's dedication to Destination Immersion® experiences, guests can indulge in the daily "South African dish of the day" at one of the onboard restaurants.

People to Planet Excursions: Launching in fall 2020, the excursions will reveal the true nature of a destination by shining a spotlight on local culture, natural wonders and how WWF is working to create a future where people and nature thrive. Within each tour, WWF will provide an expert to
impart relevant knowledge and provide a unique perspective for excursionists. Here’s one of my favorites…
Two-Day Phinda Mountain Lodge Overnight Rhino Conservation in Richard's Bay:
When calling in Richard's Bay, Azamara guests will have the opportunity to visit Phind, this one-of-a-kind variety of landscape and vegetation shelters an abundance of wildlife, including not only the Big Five but many rarer and less easily spotted species, such as the elusive cheetah. Guests will also have the rare opportunity to track the highly endangered Black Rhino with an expert tracker.
