Sail down the iconic Amazon River, meandering through the rainforest paradise

Amazon River Cruises
A cruise in Africa offers you the opportunity to explore many different and unique cultures and landscapes. There is a wide range of destinations to choose from, whether you are looking at catching a glimpse of the majestic African lion or riding a wave in Durban - Africa will be your cruise holiday of a lifetime. Shorter North African cruises sail from the Mediterranean to Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria - the more prosperous countries of the continent. Head east to Egypt and explore the mystical Arab world. Adventure enthusiasts will head to South Africa’s Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities on Earth. Here, many Africa cruises depart against the backdrop of the awesome Table Mountain. But there is more! For a dose of tropical sunshine, look no further than Mauritius, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean. Thanks to its stunning port, St. Louis, Mauritius is one of the most exclusive resort islands on Earth – and what better way to discover its paradise than on an Africa cruise?
