Africa Cruises: Bring Out Your Wild Side.

The scenery you'll 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.

Flavours as Diverse as its Landscapes

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.
