Christmas Cruise aboard the African Queen Itinerary -
24 Dec 2019 on the African Queen

Day 1 Christmas Eve

Make your own way to the country estate of Mapledurham near Reading and step aboard the African Queen where you will receive a warm welcome with a glass of bubbly. Shortly after, we enjoy a delicious buffet supper as part of our onboard Christmas Eve party.


Day 2 Christmas Day

Merry Christmas! Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and then choose from a number of options: you can join a guided walk to the Folly, visit St Margaret Church for the Christmas Day service, or take some time out to explore the area on your own. We return to the African Queen for a lovely afternoon which starts with our traditional Christmas day lunch. Cheese and biscuits are served later on in the evening.


Day 3 Boxing Day

Sit back and relax as we enjoy a cruise along the Wind in the Willows route (weather permitting), for the perfect way to spend Boxing Day. A two-course lunch is served onboard, and later we indulge in a Cape Malay dinner followed by an evening of parlour games.


Day 4 Return Journey Home

We bid a fond farewell to our hosts and disembark the African Queen.
