Africa may be just known for its exotic wildlife, safari adventures and vast deserts, but it also offers incredible beaches and wild coastlines. From Kenya’s exotic colors to South Africa’s wild Cape region, from the sparkling waters of the Seychelles to the antique majesty of the Nile an African cruise offers the easiest approach to discover this enormous continent. Some ships visit ports in Africa during world cruises, while others sail from Europe or India to or from Cape Town, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and mingle. Intriguing itineraries blend the luxury of lingering days at sea with the allure of exotic destinations.
On the East coast you can sail from Mombasa to Zanzibar’s spice-laden bazaars before cruising to the shores of The Seychelles, an archipelago alive with breathtaking mountain peaks, exotic flora and fauna and pristine white-sand beaches.
