Cruise and rail Africa holidays

Travelling by cruise or rail takes the stress out of African travel while still showcasing the continent’s rich diversity. Hop along the Atlantic coast to knit together desert ghost towns and paradise islands, or spot the Big Five on a cruise along the Zambezi’s channels and a trip in Edwardian opulence aboard one of the world’s most luxurious rail journeys. Then, there are always the ancient treasures of the Nile.
