Things to Do on an Africa Cruise with Norwegian Cruise Line


Reach new heights with a trek up one of Madagascar's iconic mountains. Visit markets full of local crafts and artisan items. Or, simply kick back on the beach and catch some rays when you travel to Africa on Norwegian Cruise Line. Delve deep into the history of humankind at the Point of Human Origins archaeological site in South Africa and let your mind wander with curiosity before you head into the city of Cape Town for a night filled with the ear-pleasing tunes of smooth jazz. Put this all together and there is only one place to find it: Africa, and one way to get there: Norwegian Cruise Line. Explore culture, food and history while doing any of these and many, many more activities while in Africa:



Dolphin Watching in Oman
  • Dolphin Watching (Muscat, Oman)
    On Norwegian Cruise Line, guests enjoy the unique opportunity to observe dolphins as they leap out of and swim through the water. Embark on a special tender for a dolphin watching cruise in order to experience something like never before. Watching dolphins is fun for all ages, so bring the family!




Safari in Port Elizabeth
  • Guided Wildlife Tour (Port Elizabeth, South Africa)
    Put on your safari hat for this one! Enter the Kragga Kamma Game Park and get comfortable in one of their off-road vehicles and get ready for the ride of your life. Trained guides take you through a wildlife reserve that will allow you to see zebras, rhinos, buffalo, giraffes, elephants and even cheetahs! Don't leave you camera on the ship, your friends will want to see this.




Volcano in Reunion
  • Rainforest Hikes (Pointe des Galets, Reunion)
    Hike your way through the beautiful rainforests of tropical Africa when cruising with Norwegian Cruise Line. If the rainforest isn't enough of a challenge, strap on your climbing shoes and get ready to climb Piton de la Fournaise, an 8,635 foot climbable, active volcano.




Chameleon in Madagascar
  • Mont Lokobe and Lokobe Reserve (Nosy Be, Madagascar)
    Get up close and personal with animals like chameleons and local species of monkeys at the Lokobe Reserve before you enjoy a traditional meal of Laoka, a dish consisting of rice, a protein and exotic spices. While here, gaze upon the highest peak on the island, Mont Lokobe.




Seychelles Aerial View
  • Seychelles National Botanical Gardens (Port Victoria, Seychelles)
    In a city famous for its natural exports of vanilla and coconut oil, you will find a beautifully manicured botanical garden, overflowing with native flowers and plants. Just steps away, you can find souvenirs for your friends back home at the Selwyn-Clarke Market. This is also a great place to stop and grab a sample of Ladob, a staple of the local diet.




Cape Town, South Africa
  • Robben Island (Cape Town, South Africa)
    Here at Robben Island, you can find some of the best shopping in South Africa. Just a short ferry ride away from Cape Town, this is where the V&A Waterfront, a tourist hot spot for culture, dining, and shopping, is located. Robben Island is also the home to the cell where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years.
