AFRICA, A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN TAKE IN CITY LIFE, WORLD FAMOUS VINEYARDS AND THE NATURAL WILD ALL IN ONE UNFORGETTABLE VOYAGE.
The African continent has grown in popularity in recent years as a luxury cruise destination. Gone are the days when only South Africa and calls to places such as Cape Town were in the spotlight; the country has much to offer and the diversity between north and south offers an abundance of enriching travel experiences.
Africa safari adventures are still a huge attraction and you will find that more and more lines now offer itineraries with optional pre-or-post-cruise land tour options – the majority are offered from Port Elizabeth, Richard’s Bay and Walvis Bay. Further north, Morocco offers a Middle Eastern vibrancy and the old Medina in Casablanca is highly recommended, while the arid desert landscape in Namibia resonates with the kind of African authenticity that is too vast to grasp by simply looking at photos or travel guides.
CRUISE LINES THAT VISIT AFRICA
From Morocco in the north, Cape Town in the south and Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, what you want to take from your visit to Africa, you can thanks to the frequency of cruise ships visiting the region. Luxury cruise lines that visit Africa include: Azamara Club Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises , Cunard and Seabourn.
While there are several cruise lines that offer dedicated 'Africa-only' itineraries, voyages that visit the continent are more commonly passing through Africa as they head towards other destinations in India, Australasia and the Pacific Islands.
BEST TIME TO VISIT AFRICA ON A CRUISE
We would recommend the months of January, February and March. Due to the size of the continent, the weather can be variable but temperatures often remain high - but not unpleasant - throughout this period. Destinations in the Indian Ocean are year-round cruise options, though most popular during the winter months between November and February. North Africa and destinations such as Morocco and Egypt are warmer during the summer months but they are also very popular as winter sun destinations.
