A region abundant with fascinating wildlife, alluring coasts and a distinctive natural beauty, Africa is a continent which has to be seen to be believed. Available on selected sailings:
On Oceania Cruises’ Africa Cruises, a riveting tour of Africa’s finest ports will give cruisers a once in the lifetime opportunity to explore the spectacles of this vast continent.
Along the way, Oceania Cruises offer an expanded itinerary that explores stops as far flung as Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, Phuket and Penang. Although these enticing ports are highlights in themselves, the splendour of the African Coast and its surrounding islands is where Africa Cruises truly shine.
From the Ivory Coast to the Gold Coast, Africa is a continent blessed with some of the most exotic, yet inviting ports in the world, all of them containing unique architecture, engrossing local customs and thrilling excursions.
Kenya’s main tourist destination of Mombasa is blessed with a tropical climate all year round, meaning its gorgeous beaches are a pleasure whatever the season. Once controlled by British, Portuguese and Arabian rulers, Mombasa still proudly exhibits its storied history, which stretches back to the 16th century.
Forte Jesus de Mombasa, a beautifully preserved Portuguese stronghold, is a major landmark of the city, but also stands alongside architecture and monuments of countless other influences. In a testament to Mombasa’s cultural diversity, cruisers can take in Hindu Temples, the Islamic facades of the markets in Old Town, and British Colonial Townhouses, all in the space of a single stroll through the gorgeous city districts.
Treating you to an adventure further afield, Oceania Cruises also anchor on the famous island archipelago of Zanzibar. This island was once the spice capital of the world, and shares the colonial grandeur of Mombasa within its architecture.
The market in Stone Town is a vibrant festive explosion of open air vendors selling fresh fruit and vegetables of every colour and shade for prices are too good to pass up. The awe-inspiring spectacle of the market is worth the trip alone, and should be the first stop for cruisers looking to get a taste of the vitality and vibrancy of the locals.
Heading to the coast of South Africa, Cunard Cruises ships stop at two of the finest modern ports within the region, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. Overlooked the majestic peaks of Table Mountain, Cape Town harbour is set within the azure green waters of Table Bay.
Along with an overwhelming natural beauty, Cape Town is one of the most vital economic and leisure centres within the whole of Africa, and this shows within its pleasingly metropolitan streets, its cutting edge décor, but most of all within its shopping.
The Victoria and Albert Waterfront is a hub for fantastic well-known brands, but also unique boutiques and dining experiences. The convenience of the waterfront makes it a must visit for short stays, with an epic view of the surrounding bay giving any shopping spree an exotic edge.
Cunard Cruises are a world leader in providing the best of the region on their Africa Cruises. With the wonders of the South African coast to discover, along with gems of the east to explore across the Indian Ocean, a voyage to this region is a stirring adventure no matter the season.
