Africa River cruises

River cruises in Africa

Introduction

There are a number of mighty rivers and waterways in Africa that can be explored on a luxury river cruise.

Most iconic amongst them is a Nile River cruise, which typically sails from Luxor and drifts down the Nile past a number of breathtaking archaeological sites including Abu Simbel, Karnak, the Valley of the Kings and the tomb of Hatshepsut as well as vibrant city stops such as Kom Ombo, to finally arrive in Aswan.

For an alternative type of safari, float down the Chobe River in Botswana, escaping the crowds and accessing areas that can't be reached by road. Look out for large populations of elephant and antelope as well as hippo and crocodile, before stopping in traditional villages to see local life unfold.

All of these options can be tailor-made to suit your individual interests and we can add a city stay in Cairo, safari trip or other element as you wish; talk to a destination specialist to start planning your cruise.
