North and South Africa Cruise Destinations

Well-known for its rolling grasslands, exotic wildlife, safari adventures, and vast deserts. Africa additionally includes a continent of beautiful beaches and several cultures. From Mombasa’s Old Town of vibrant colours within Kenya to the breath-taking wine producing valleys as well as dramatic Cape Town views, a cruise to this area of the world provides all things from historic museum visits to Zebra encounters.

For vacationers wanting to explore further within Africa or spend a bit more time at disembarkation/embarkation ports, many cruise lines provide escorted safari cruise tour choices which take guests within Eastern and Central Africa, and post- and pre-cruise packages which involve detailed African city tours.

A few ships visit ports within Africa within world cruises, whilst other ones sail voyages from Lisbon and additional European countries and from Cape Town and India. For the most part, itineraries to Africa don’t stringently visit just ports upon the continent. Stops alongside Africa might involve port calls within the Seychelles, Egypt, India, Greece and Spain. Africa cruise itineraries are longer than many cruises and could last over twenty days.
