Seychelles, Madagascar, & South Africa from Dubai
An Africa cruise can take in both east and west coasts (plus, of course, South Africa), however, the north is generally considered part of a Mediterranean itinerary. Your cruise ship base is an ideal launching pad from which to explore the wonders and wildlife - plus islands such as St. Helena, Zanzibar, Madagascar and Mauritius are all within reach. Explore the huge continent of Africa, with amazing wildlife and fascinating cultures encompassed within its 70,000 miles of the coast.
When to visit?
Most world cruises make their Africa calls from January to April, but you will find cruises visiting most of the year, through to October. The weather will depend on season and cruise area, although most places are hot and humid with South Africa offering a more temperate climate.
