North and South Africa cruises

African cruises attract the true adventurer. Whether you choose South Africa cruises, North Africa cruises or West Africa cruises, the continent begs to be explored.

Dusty plains and rolling dunes appear on the horizon. For the lucky ones the 'big five' might be spotted grazing in the wild. Cruise into this rich land and a whole host of attractions will vie for your attention.

Africa is filled with game-rich savannahs, fine vineyards, cosmopolitan cities and architectural heritage of a great colonial past. An Africa cruise is truly astounding and leaves an imprint on its visitors forever.
