Description

During the early to mid part of this century many shipping companies vied with each other over the lucrative trade routes to East Africa, and around the Cape. Two of the most famous of these companies were Ellermanís and Union Castle, both very different but each proud of the high standards of the services they maintained.

Ships featured - City of Port Elizabeth, City of Lichfield, City of Guildford, City of Durban, Rhodesia Castle, Braemar Castle and Kenya Castle.

We sail on these wonderful ships on their long voyages to Africa and around the Cape.
