Breakfast: Breakfast on board the ship

Morning: Spend your morning relaxing onboard the ship as you sail into Luderitz, Namibia.

Lunch: Lunch on board the ship

Afternoon: Within minutes of disembarking from MS Expedition on the southern coast of Namibia, you will encounter ascending blocks of architectural evidence that the seaside town of Luderitz had indeed been founded by German settlers who brought their culture with them to southwest Africa. From the brightly painted houses of Berg Street (1909-11) to the elegant 1910 Goerke House on the hill, it was also evident that a substantial number of the early 20th century newcomers to this remote seaport had achieved financial success from endeavors related to the nearby diamond fields. But the visitors of 2015 will find that these days of colorful European-style buildings repose along sleepy inclined avenues where the era of bustling prosperity that produced them a century ago, has long since been absorbed into the mists of the offshore currents. Just a few miles north, we travel through the dwellings of the mining ghost town of Komannskuppe. Glancing at faded museum photographs, listen for faint echoes of German life from the arduous era of the diamond industry.

Soon after, we're off to look at the Moon landscape - which is yet another portion of the desert with formations of such unusual peaks and valleys stretching off into tomorrow.

Day Seventeen: Monday, April 20 - Cotonou, Benin
Breakfast: Breakfast on board the ship

Morning: On the surface Cotonou seems like any other noisy and colorful African city, an impression reinforced as you move through the endless labyrinth of dusty streets clogged with informal markets, trading kiosks and roadside industries. The city lacks natural resources, but what it does not appear to lack is entrepreneurial energy. Every conceivable commodity and enterprise is available somewhere not too far from anywhere else. We arrive at our first destination of Gamvie. Described as the Venice of West Africa, it is a little less than that, but nonetheless it is an extraordinary community atop the tidal Lake Nueke where historically, refuge was sought against the predation of the slave catching troops of Dahomey. Today it remains an independent water community reliant on small scale trade and fishing, existing around a small, self contined stilted village. We visited the site in a series of small boats, embarking at a bustling but rather odorous waterside market from where you weave your way through busy fishermen and paddling market ladies.

Lunch: Lunch on board the ship or at a local restaurant

Afternoon: From Gamvie, make your way through the congested countryside to the fascinating town of Ouidah. The sad history of Ouidah is that it once served as the main entrepot for slave embarkation to the New World, and a great deal of local focus and commeroration has been given over to memorializing this shameful trade. Ouidah is also the center of the local Voodoo culture, with colorful and symbolic statuary representing various aspects of the faith to be found everywhere within and around the town.

Although this site was established by the Swedes in 1653, it was not until the 1700s when it fell under the control of the British, that it reached its peak of output as a commercial slaving depot. The castle itself, although forbidding from the outside, is surrounded by pleasant aspects of local fishing activity, and the relatively clean and pleasant precincts of Cape Castle village.

Morning: Dakhla is located in the country of West Sahara, although administered by Morocco. This is your opportunity to touch the western edge of the great Sahara Desert. The Western Sahara is a tropical desert. Hot and dry but cooled by the breeze off the Atlantic Ocean. This combination of cool and hot can often create a fog layer out at sea. A pastorial nomadic lifestyle is common here, as most make a living fishing or mining. We are planning a full day here to see the edge of the Sahara and if possible, some of the nomadic people who live here.
