Book any cruise that travels around the coast of Africa and you’re guaranteed to enjoy a trip that will be unlike anything else you might have experienced before.
The vast continent is famed for diverse landscapes, stunning natural beauty and the opportunity to get close to some of the most famous members of the wildlife world.
Given the sheer size of Africa, it’s little surprise to see that it is a region that offers something to cater for all tastes – regardless of what you are looking for from your trip.
Should you be travelling around the north, then the colourful cities of Morocco and Tunisia are well worth a visit, as is the Egyptian port of Alexandria – from where you could take a trip inland to visit the famous pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, or the stunning tombs at the Valley of the Kings near Luxor.
If nature is your thing then the likes of Kenya are hard to beat, with the possibility of taking a trip on a safari to try and spot the ‘Big Five’ in their natural surroundings.
You could also seek out wildlife on a trip to the island of Madagascar, or in Mozambique; where there is also the opportunity to explore colonial history during a visit to the capital city Maputo.
History is also a big part of a trip to South Africa, particularly if you decide to visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent his time in prison.
Whilst ashore on South African soil, you might also visit some of the top wine growing regions in Africa or relax on the beaches around Durban.
For something totally unique, a trip to Namibia – where desert sands meet with the sea – is an experience that will live long in the memory.
