Africa is such a huge continent with so much to see that a cruise can often be the perfect way to fit in a number of highlights in one trip.

Best known for its exotic wildlife, rolling grasslands, vast deserts and safari adventures, Africa is also a continent of diverse cultures and beautiful beaches. From Mombasa's Old Town in Kenya to the magnificent wine producing valleys and dramatic views of Cape Town, a cruise to Africa offers everything from historic museum visits to close encounters with lions and zebra.

Most cruise lines offer escorted safari tour options, pre or post cruise, that take you into central and eastern Africa, where you can observe big game and other wildlife in their natural environment.

African cruises tend to be longer than most, sometimes lasting more than 20 days, with the best time to go between September and March. Itineraries can include visits to the amazing cities of Stone Town in Zanzibar, Mombasa in Kenya and Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town in South Africa.
