Africa is blessed with hundreds of miles of wonderful coastline and mighty inland lakes. Enjoy short adventure cruises such as a sunset yacht cruise on Lake Malawi or a dhow cruise off the coast of Mozambique or Zanzibar.

This makes an African cruise an intimate experience and as you sail the clear waters along the African coast, you have the perfect conditions for additional activities such as snorkelling and diving.

The islands of Zanzibar, Mauritius and the Seychelles are especially well-suited to adventure cruising.
