Africa Ocean Cruises

Icons of the urban & natural world

Cruise holidays to Africa


Africa cruises are ever-more popular with those looking to discover dramatic landscapes, diverse cultures and exciting wildlife, whilst also seeking out winter sun picture postcard beaches, all the while travelling in luxury and fine style.

You might choose to sail between Africa's northern countries, taking in the ancient cultures of Egypt, stopping at Alexandria, Cairo and Sharm el-Sheikh, or dipping into the colour and vibrancy of Morocco. Then, there are the numerous ports of Africa's spectacular east coast, including Mombasa in Kenya, Stone Town on Zanzibar, Tolanaro on Madagascar and Maputo in Mozambique, all framed by the deep blue of the Indian Ocean.

At the continent's southern tip, you might choose to pair Cape Town's urban icons with the chance to taste world-leading wines and head out into the wilds to spot the Big Five near Port Elizabeth. And lastly, on the west coast, there are such off-the-beaten track gems as Namibia's Skeleton Coast and Banjul in remote Gambia.

These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your Africa cruise by adding a city stay, wildlife holiday or other excursion before or after you sail; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
