The rivers of Africa are the lifeblood of the world's largest continent, bringing the wildlife to its nourishing tides. Experience a world class river cruise along these rivers for a front-row seat to the circle of life in action aboard one of the limited but luxurious river boats. Depending on which cruise you choose, you will have all of the same opportunities as a traditional land-based tour, such as game drives, safari hikes, community visits, and historical tours, plus the added benefit of living on a mobile five-star hotel, like Zambezi Queen, African Dream, Le Lyrial, and Silver Cloud Expedition. Contact us to start planning your luxury cruise of Africa!
