Cruising around Africa is an experience unlike any other. From the vibrant cultures to the stunning landscapes and wildlife, this continent has endless opportunities to explore. One of the best ways to discover Africa is through a cruise.
One of the most popular cruises is along the coast of South Africa, with stops in places like Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, and Durban. Guests will have the opportunity to explore South Africa’s wine country, witness incredible wildlife on safari, and immerse themselves in the country’s rich history and culture.
From the mosques and souks of Morocco to the cradle of humanity in South Africa, there’s a plethora of Africa cruise options with something for everyone from ocean to river cruise. Boutique to luxury the choice is yours.
Another popular option is a Nile River cruise in Egypt. Visitors can take in ancient temples, tombs, and pyramids along the way, while also experiencing the hustle and bustle of modern-day Egypt.
Cruising Africa would not be complete without a stay in Cape town for a few days to one of the continent’s best safari destinations, offering the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) and more in accessible parks and reserves. You can drive right into the epic wilderness at Kruger, Kgalagadi and other parks, or join khaki-clad rangers on guided drives and walks.
A Red Sea cruise opens doors to cultural enrichment. Jordan is home to Petra, an ancient city carved into a sandstone cliff. Egypt features a huge range of spectacular ancient sites from the Valley of the Kings to the Pyramids of Giza and cruise excursions offer ample opportunity to learn more about the country.
For those looking for a more off-the-beaten-path adventure, cruises are available to smaller ports in West Africa, including Senegal, Ghana, and Togo. Guests can immerse themselves in local markets, try traditional local dishes, and witness breathtaking scenery along the Atlantic coast.
African cruises offer travelers hassle-free travel while discovering some of the most captivating places on the continent. So why not choose a cruise as your next African adventure?
