Africa Cruises: Bring Out Your Wild Side.
The scenery you will witness in Africa is as wild and diverse as the creatures that freely roam. Take a day safari from Richard´s Bay or visit Addo Elephant National Park near Port Elizabeth. In the west, explore world-class vineyards in the fertile Cape Winelands and hang out with adorable African penguins at Cape Town´s Boulder Beach. Every port provides unforgettable adventures, and every one of our ships promises marvellous days at sea.
Witness the Majestic Beauty of Wildlife
Embark on an extraordinary voyage to the diverse shores of Africa with Norwegian Cruise Line. Come face-to-face with white rhinos, elephants, cheetahs, lions, zebras and more in an Open Game Drive Safari. Hluhluwe Game Reserve is one of the oldest proclaimed reserves in Africa, and only an hour away from Richard´s Bay. This once in a lifetime experience awaits on your next cruise to Africa.
Enjoy Overnight Stays on your Cruise to Africa
Choose from remarkable itineraries on three beautiful ships, Norwegian Spirit, Norwegian Jade and the recently refurbished Norwegian Dawn. Some itineraries include an overnight stay in Cape Town, the Seychelles, Egypt or Richard´s Bay, allowing you to explore even more. Linger longer as you tour vineyards and sip estate wines in Cape Winelands. Discover funky Kloof Street with its eclectic bars and cafes. Or take a bus tour to Signal Hill for a magnificent sunset. Explore the splendor of ancient tombs in Safaga, Egypt. And be sure to catch the sunset over the Indian Ocean.
Flavours as Diverse as its Landscapes
Dutch, French, Indian and Malaysian meld to create the Afrikaans-style of cooking. Braai or shisa nyama, which means "burn the meat", is like western BBQ. For a meaty snack, try Biltong. Served in a brown bag, these spiced strips are akin to jerky. Wondering about Slap Chips? Try these vinegar-doused fries alone or in a Gatsby sandwich. Seafood lovers can rejoice too at Mossel Bay, whose name means bay of mussels. Need a "dop" or drink? A favourite is Amarula, a cream liqueur made from the fruit of the Marula tree. Elephants get drunk eating its fermented fruit.
