There is truly something for everyone on a cruise to Africa as the shore excursions and destinations are as varied as the natural landscapes and cultures.

Africa is not the first destination that springs to mind when one considers cruising but that is precisely why it is such a memorable experience. The mainstream tourist industry has not yet invaded this region and so it maintains a refreshing authenticity which converts to a memorable holiday experience. The dramatic vistas, ancient cultures and indigenous wildlife you will encounter will impress you to no end. Popular destinations include the fabled Casablanca in Morocco, the affluent Cape Town in the South and the ‘Pearl of the Mediterranean’, Alexandria in Egypt. At CruiseAway we believe that a cruise is the absolute best way to see Africa as its size and diversity would otherwise make it difficult for travellers to have a comprehensive experience of the region. Cruises allow you to take part in carefully selected shore excursions with the bonus of being able to come back to your luxurious vessel at the end of the day for some R&R.
