Life is a Holiday on an Africa Cruise

If you’re looking for an adventure, seek out an Africa cruise. These cruises are often far longer than usual, averaging 15-20 days as part of a world cruise or extended Africa itinerary. Among the fleets that offer Africa cruises include the stately Cunard, Holland America, Crystal, Oceania, MSC, AmaWaterways, and Princess.

South Africa offers stunning vineyards and consistently produces excellent wines. Of course, you’ll be able to see an abundant amount of wildlife on your Africa cruise if you book a tour or excursion. You might see zebras, elephants, leopards, and lions, to name just a few.

On an Africa cruise, you might visit destinations such as Mozambique, Madagascar, Cape Town, Seychelles, Egypt, and Port Elizabeth. Other voyages include Africa as part of a world cruise or extended cruise, and may visit India and the Maldives, too. Cruises may embark from Lisbon, Port Louis, Perth, Cape Town, and India.
