Weigh anchor and let your African adventure begin! Each of Africa's diverse destinations offers unique opportunities to explore it by water. At the continent's northern limits, river cruises along the Nile will put you right in the heart of the ancient Egyptian civilization, all aboard the luxurious and modern yachts that cruise the world's only north-flowing river, like the Sanctuary Sun Boat III and Sanctuary Sun Boat IV. On the other end of the continent, the luxurious Zambezi Queen will acquaint you with wild Botswana. Away from the mainland, the Pegasus will take you to the tropical Seychelles Islands, nicknamed "the Garden of Eden." Or, experience the bottom of the world, on a 23-day Cape to Cape adventure from Argentina all the way to South Africa aboard the Silver Explorer.
