(37) Cruising Africa

Africa is a unique and vast cruise destination to explore. With unstable political climates in much of Africa, a cruise ship provides a more secure base for exploring the wonders of Africa from the Pillars of Hercules in Gibraltar to the southern tip of Cape Town. Holland America, Princess, Crystal, Silverseas and Cunard include African destinations on their cruise itineraries.

  • Best Bets: The romance of Casablanca adds to the mystique of Morocco. To the south, visit the "Mother City" of Cape Town with excursions exploring the sand dunes of the Namibia Desert. Book excursions that include early morning safaris or hot air balloon rides above the plains.
  • Best Time: Most cruise lines visit Africa between January and March.
