Africa cruises are the perfect way to explore one of the world’s most beautiful and diverse continents and with Fred. Olsen. You'll find an amazing choice of great value cruises which explore different areas of Africa’s contrasting and captivating coastline.
Fred Olsen Africa cruises travel to many different areas of the continent and offer cruisers a diverse range of experiences, perfectly contrasting the home from home British ambience on-board. Fred. Olsen’s exciting program of tours means that cities, beaches, deserts, rainforests and spectacular safari adventures are all yours to experience. As one of the world’s hottest continents, no matter where you go in Africa, the climate can be difficult to deal with especially in the middle of the day, so as a result, the vast majority of Fred. Olsen Africa cruises take place in spring, autumn or winter.
A West Africa cruise is a great way to experience some of the continent’s most popular coastal and island escapes. Round-trips from Tenerife often offer the chance to experience this enchanting side of Africa, calling at the Porto Novo on Cape Verde Island, where you can scale the 2,000 metre Topo de Coroa for an amazing view, and the former Portuguese port of Mindelo, with its rich colonial heritage. You could also visit Cape Verdi’s capital Praia on the island of Santiago, and Banjul in the Gambia, where you can experience the bustling market or take a memorable safari trip inland.
South Africa is of course known for the legendary Cape Town, and on a cruise which explores this region of the continent, you’ll be able to see for yourself the city’s breathtaking centrepiece Table Mountain and how the Victorian and Edwardian architecture contrasts with the more modern buildings. Durban meanwhile is a beach-lovers paradise, offering some of the continent’s finest sandy escapes, as well as a happening cosmopolitan atmosphere. Historic Port Elizabeth is the perfect stop-off for those wishing to walk in the footsteps of the 1820 settler’s and explore the country’s colonial heritage.
