Africa Ports

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town – South Africa’s second largest city – is often the embarkation or disembarkation point for an African cruise and if not, is usually featured heavily within the itinerary. It is easy to see why Cape Town is one of the most sought-after African destinations, as it is brimming with ancient history and natural beauty as well as fascinating local culture.

Take the cable car to top of Table Mountain for breathtaking views over the city, head to Robben Island to learn more about the region’s fascinating history or set off on a tour of the stunning Constantia Valley – South Africa’ renowned wine district, home to many quaint and beautiful vineyards.

Durban, South Africa

As one of Africa’s busiest ports, the city of Durban is a hub of culture and activity, offering visitors a wealth of exciting things to see and do. Similarly to the rest of South Africa, Durban boasts spectacular natural beauty and a scenic coastline, alongside a modern and engaging city centre.

Whilst in Durban, make sure to spend time on the Golden Mile – an extraordinary stretch of pristine beaches along the city’s Indian Ocean shoreline, providing the perfect opportunity for coastal pursuits such as surfing and swimming. Elsewhere, the region is home to a number of verdant nature reserves and botanical gardens, all of which are a joy to explore.

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Located off the coast of Tanzania on the eastern shore of Africa, Zanzibar is a fantastic place to explore, from the picturesque nature trails leading through verdant forests to the historic towns filled with ancient architecture, well-known for upholding African traditions and customs throughout the ages.

To discover Zanzibar’s incredible natural beauty, head to the Jozani Forest to observe a range of unique and rare flora and fauna up close, or relax on the island’s golden sandy beaches. Alternatively, explore Stone Town – a UNESCO World Heritage site filled with historic structures linked by ancient, winding alleyways which create an unforgettable atmosphere.
