Africa is the perfect cruise destination for a rugged safari adventure or a discovery of native cultures from the Middle East to Madagascar.

Learn about the history and change of Angola’s people and culture, or have a village culture experience in Senegal.

Things to Do on a Cruise to Africa


Africa is a vast continent with amazing landscapes and is still a largely untouched landscape where you can travel from the desert, to the mountains, and to the plains of the Serengeti. Experience Africa’s rich cultural traditions that are tied to the land and those who live there. Highlighted below are some of our most recommended experiences for cruising to Africa:


Africa Egyptian camel pyramids of Giza Egypt
  • Spend a day on an unforgettable African Safari. Game reserves all over the continent offer you a chance to get up close and personal with lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, zebras and more.
  • Explore the great Egyptian civilization with a visit to the pyramids in Giza and follow in the footsteps of Cleopatra on a cruise along the Nile. There's no better way to discover the treasures of the Nile for yourself.
Africa Victoria Falls Zimbabwe
  • African history may not be as widely known as that of Europe or Asia, but when visiting you'll enjoy several stops to help you understand significant moments in Africa's past, including castles in Ghana or Robben Island in South Africa.
  • Double the size of Niagara Falls , Victoria Falls is an incredibly breathtaking spot. You can discover this spot and the rainforest that surrounds it or even get a bird’s eye view on a helicopter ride above the falls.
Africa beautiful CapeTown beaches South Africa
  • Tour the vineyards that lie west of Capetown in towns like Stellenbosch and Franschhoek where you’ll find never ending vineyards. Don’t leave without trying the award winning wines produced in this region.
  • Surf or just get some sun along the coast line of Africa. Throughout the continent you’ll find stunning beaches along the Indian Ocean, Red Sea and Atlantic Ocean. If you’re a daredevil try shark cage diving in South Africa.

Africa: Departure Ports

The great continent of Africa is a destination that runs wild with exciting culture and adventures. This continent, considered the first place where humans lived, is filled with history. The continent is so large, cruising around it takes a while, but you can explore many regions of the island with cruises that depart from Cairo in the north western corner to Cape Town way down at the bottom. Sail from Accra, Ghana on the western coast or experience the island life in Madagascar and Mauritius as you leave on a cruise from Port Louis, off the coast of Africa. Of course many longer cruises that wind up in Africa begin in ports like Southampton in Europe or Singapore in Asia.
