Africa
Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

Discovering Africa by boat opens up ancient and remote kingdoms, from the splendors of the Maldives to the unique archipelagos of the Seychelles and Madagascar. Sample the delights of a South African winery or witness the true majesty of nature in the wild. There are few better ways to discover the dramatic coastline and off lying islands of Africa than by luxury superyacht.

The seemingly forgotten group of 115 islands which make up the Seychelles, lying right in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 932 miles from Africa, nurture unique species of flora and fauna including the giant tortoises of Aldabra atoll, 11 unique species of birds and 200 species of fish and aquatic life. Ashore there are amazing granite structures mostly protected in nature reserves. Not surprisingly some people refer to this pristine sanctuary as the "Garden of Eden".

Just as dramatic is the sensational island of Madagascar. Jump off your yacht into the crystalline waters of this island 250 miles off the east coast of Africa and you won’t be disappointed. There are coral reefs to peek at, sandy shores to laze on, forests that slither and jump with wildlife and fascinating tribal cultures.

Nestled behind Madagascar are the islands of Mauritius and Reunion. These small islands are almost entirely surrounded by one of the largest unbroken coral reefs in the world. That should be more than enough to get you reaching for your snorkel, mask and fins. It’s remotely located, 1,120 miles from the African continent, and largely volcanic.

Head further up the East Coast of Africa and discover the magic warm waters of Tanzania around the island of Zanzibar. There are sheltered islets and coral reefs to explore, dolphins and whales to watch and beaches to lie on.

Travel along the Swahili coast of Kenya and cruise out to tropical islands where you can soak up the sun and sea culture. Keep an eye out for turtles, dolphins and whale sharks along this dramatic and beguiling coastline. From here it is possible to stop off and head inland to one of the many national parks. Prepare to be awestruck as you catch your first glimpse of the big five on the plains of the Msai Mara.

Still to the East of Africa are the Maldives. Thanks to a year-round tropical climate you can sail, dive and snorkel here year round. There are limitless areas to explore within the archipelago of 1,190 coral islands. Beaches, coves, lagoons, coral gardens and unique underwater life abound.

Over on the West Coast the islands of Cape Verde are an excellent location for people who don’t mind the absence of marinas and a tourism industry. Get ashore via the tender to meet the colourful inhabitants and dine in their rustic restaurants. The Cape Verde Islands consist of 25 islands in total but only nine are inhabited. The Western islands are volcanic with rocky coastlines while the Eastern islands are where you find long sandy beaches, perfect for anchoring and sipping cocktails under a perfect starry sky.

No yacht charter to Africa would be complete without a stop in South Africa. There are thousands of miles of coastline to explore and the Garden Route is one of the most beautiful stretches. For 125 miles lakes, forests and mountains crowd the shoreline, dotted with beaches and bays for you to pull in at.

If sophistication is desired then Cape Town has it all. This exceptionally beautiful seaside metropolis is one of the most cosmopolitan in the world. World-class restaurants, luxury shopping and resorts abound here among beautiful beaches and stunning landscape. Immerse yourself in the iconic culture of Cape Town by visiting one of the 100 diverse art galleries or joining in a traditional African drum circle. During your South Africa yacht charter enjoy the sun on Gordon’s Bay Bikini Beach as the majesty of Tabletop Mountain looms in the background.

Whichever destination you choose to travel to, the majesty of Africa is sure to impress as you wile away the days enjoying all of the pleasure and luxury that a yacht charter has to offer.
