Surrounded by the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, and also by Mediterranean Sea, Africa has a circle of main ports that help cruisers discover this amazing continent. See Africa's Gold Coast on the Atlantic Ocean, including Senegal and Ghana, and stop at the tropical Cape Verde islands. In southwest Africa, the plateaus and plains of Namibia are found between the Kalahari Desert, visited often on cruises that embark in South Africa's major ports of Cape Town and Durban. To the east, you can go snorkeling off the coast of Madagascar or sail up to the glorious Seychelles.
Many Mediterranean cruises stop in North African countries such Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, the Canary Islands, & Cape Verde. Some ocean liners will stop in the Canary or Cape Verde Islands on trans-Atlantic crossings or in South Africa, Madagascar, Zanzibar, the Seychelles, or Mauritius on round-the-world trips.
