Phenomenal wildlife, staggeringly beautiful coastlines and exhilarating landscapes make Africa a charter destination unlike any other on the planet. The continent is far better known for its animal encounters and fascinating fusion of cultures, but diverse cruising opportunities abound, from the brilliant blue Indian Ocean sparkling along the eastern shores to Egypt’s Red Sea to the trio of oceans that surround South Africa’s 3,000-kilometre-long coastline.
Africa luxury yacht charter guide
Africa is seldom visited by superyachts but as discerning travellers look to journey to ever more far-flung destinations, the options for cruising the continent are slowly on the up. Undertake your charter vacation here and you won’t see another luxury yacht for days. Rather your senses will be on overload with a succession of incredible panoramas, out-of-this-world sunsets and wildlife aplenty.
Places emerging as offering viable cruising grounds include Tanzania, with its Indian Ocean coastline offering white sandy beaches, fascinating cultures and a scattering of exotic islands. Expedition yachts also have the capability to venture to Madagascar where unique wildlife abounds. South Africa, meanwhile, opens up the chance to discover Cape Peninsula, coastal cities and the Mozambique Channel.
Superyacht itineraries in Africa
One of the best reasons to charter a superyacht in Africa is so you can combine wildlife tracking on land, for which options abound, with dreamy beach days and island-hopping adventures. Centre your itinerary on the mainland or seek out dreamy archipelagos, the most popular being Zanzibar. Just as fascinating creatures roam the interior, the African waters team with a diverse array of marine life, making the continent an ideal place to visit for scuba divers.
