Africa

Get off the beaten cruise track as you journey through the culturally diverse and breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of Africa. From the charming coastal cities and winelands of South Africa to the big-game wildlife reserves of East Africa and the paradisiacal beaches of the Seychelles. Travel to remote West African islands that remain largely undiscovered to the outside world and be entranced by the never-ending dunes and spice-infused cities of the north - Africa is a continent like no other.
