An Africa cruise is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will leave you amazed at the continent's beauty. On African cruises, passengers can visit the wine country of South Africa, or watch the sun sink over the plains of Kenya after a day on safari. Cruise Africa and stroll the exquisite, unspoiled beaches of the Seychelles, or experience the colonial French atmosphere of Nosy Be, Madagascar.

  • The African cruise season lasts from September to May.
  • Africa cruises are typically 12 to 24 nights.
  • Pre- or post-cruise safari packages are very popular, allowing Africa cruise passengers to spend a few days exploring the incredible wildlife habitats of Kenya, South Africa or Tanzania.
  • To cruise Africa, you'll need to fly a long distance to reach your port of departure, so we suggest that you arrive at the port city at least one or two days in advance. A pre-cruise hotel package will give you time to rest and get oriented before your African cruise.
