Africa & Indian Ocean

Hear the call of the wild

Sculpted sand dunes, dazzling white beaches, wonderful wildlife and crystal clear seas are just the start of this epic region.

Step back in time on a small ship cruise to Africa and the Indian Ocean. Immerse yourself in the immensity of a region known for its kaleidoscopic culture and charisma. From the diverse variety of wildlife – including the coveted Big Five -to the rose-hued walls of Petra and the markets of Mumbai, Africa and the Indian Ocean have been topping wanderlust wish lists for years.

Set sail for new horizons aboard our fleet of ultra-luxury small ships. Whether you are looking for excitement and adventure with Silversea Expeditions or relaxation and exploration with our ocean-sailing ships, we have the right itinerary for you. Choose from various lengths and departure dates, and soon you too could be meeting the Seychelles giant tortoise in Aldabra, visiting world-renowned UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Zanzibar or sunning on the white sand beaches of Madagascar.

Whatever your pleasure, Silversea’s small ship cruises to Africa and the Indian Ocean offer an in-depth look at a region that is far more than souks and safaris.

On Expedition cruises, Zodiacs are used almost every day to access parts of the destination. Additionally, on several occasions, it is only possible embark and disembark the ship by Zodiac.
