Cruises to Africa
Except from cruises based in South Africa, itineraries to Africa are mainly part of a world or extended cruise. Voyages tend to be longer and can last more than 3 weeks. Longer cruises can start from as far away as Singapore, Dubai UAE, Lisbon in Portugal and Southampton Port in England. Ports of call may include the Seychelles, India, Cape Verde Islands and the Canary Islands (Santa Cruz de Tenerife). Some cruiselines cross the South Atlantic Ocean and end their voyage in Rio de Janeiro Brazil (Copacabana).
Overnight at a hotel a couple days before or after your cruise voyage. Staying a little longer gives you the opportunity to experience all wonders of Africa. Escape to the wild and embark on a unique safari adventure to one of Africa’s finest and largest game reserves, home to elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion, giraffe, zebra, and more. Travel down to Cape of Good Hope for a close-up with penguins at Boulders Beach, then sip on a glass of wine in the Cape Winelands, South Africa’s largest wine region.
Africa boasts also some amazing beaches. Extend your cruise vacation in Clifton or Camps Bay near Cape Town or Plettenberg South Africa, Beyin Beach in Ghana, Swakopmund Namibia, or Nungwi Zanzibar. On the islands of the Indian Ocean palm fringed paradises like affluent Mauritius and Seychelles offer first class hotels set amidst tropical gardens, sparkling indigo lagoons, and pure white sands.
