Things to Do on an Africa Cruise with Viking Oceans

 

If you think the only thing to do on a cruise to Africa is go on a safari, then you are in for a pleasant surprise. Of course you can, and should, do an exciting safari while in Africa, but you can also do so much more. You can take a hot air balloon ride, enjoy a wine tasting, ride a cable car to the top of a mountain and explore culturally important places. These will be memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. Please continue below for a few recommended excursions on your Viking Oceans cruise to Africa:

 


Zebras Grazing in Open Field
  • Hot Air Balloon Ride (Durban, South Africa)
    Explore the African wilderness in a way you’ve never see it before – from 1,500 feet up in the air in a hot air balloon! Keep your eyes open for wildlife like rhinos, hippos, giraffes, zebras and more.
     

 


Cable car track to top of mountain
  • Cable Car to the Top of Table Mountain (Cape Town, South Africa)
    For a stunning view of Cape Town, take a cable car ride up to the top of Table Mountain. Then take in the stunning panoramic views on the 360-degree rotating floor, gaze out upon Cape Town’s landmarks and the city itself.
     

 


Seals gathering on beach
  • Walvis Bay Lagoon Cruise (Walvis Bay, Namibia)
    Get back out on the water with an exciting boat ride around Walvis Bay’s gorgeous lagoon. As you cruise around the bay, breathe in the sea air and look for wildlife like seals, dolphins and pelicans. A charming seal may even join you onboard in search of a tasty morsel of fish!
     

 


White mosque in Casablanca overlooking ocean
  • Explore the City of White (Casablanca, Morocco)
    Casablanca is one of Morocco’s best-known cities and you’ll enjoy exploring many of its landmarks. You’ll visit the largest mosque outside of Mecca, the Royal Palace and the United Nations Square. You’ll also pass by the Casablanca Cathedral – which became secular after Morocco’s independence and today is a cultural center.
     

 


Brown barrels of wine in cellar
  • Galician Roots and Wine Tasting (Vigo, Spain)
    Travel from Vigo to the unique winemaking region of Galicia to sample some of Spain’s best wines. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of the vineyard, a delicious wine and tapas tasting session, then sightseeing of the surrounding area.
     

 


Large statue of man and woman standing tall
  • African Renaissance Monument (Dakar, Senegal)
    This monument is taller than the Statue of Liberty and was built to convey the pride of Africa and celebrate their independence from the Colonial era. Be sure to make it a stop during your time in Dakar.
