Can you go on Safari while Cruising?

Cruise safari

Choosing to go on a cruise opens up a world of possibilities. It can take you places you never thought of going and you can experience things that you have always dreamed of. Cruising can also offer a much more affordable way to go to places and experience things that you may not be able to byย booking a holiday to just one destination.

So while I’m speaking about experiences you can have that you may not have every day, I recently visited South Africa and was lucky enough to go on Safari while I was there. So this got me thinking. Is it possible to go on safari while you are on a cruise? Well, the answer is yes!

The best option is booking a cruise that stops in South Africa, Cape Town preferably. Then you can book an excursion or even arrange it yourself, to go to a game reserve and go on Safari. There are a few different options. But these ones from P&Oย and Cunardย seem to offer some really good trips.

Most of the Game Reserves are at least 2 hours from Cape Town, but that means that it’s more than achievable in a day. You would normally take a coach or private taxi from Cape Town to the reserve. It will be an early start as you will need to be at the Game Reserve in the morning to get the best chance of seeing all the animals. The Safari normally take 2-3 hours. Once you have been on Safari, lunch is provided at an onsite restaurant and then you can relax by the pool for an hour before heading back into Cape Town to board your ship.

It really is an amazing experience and one that I would definitely recommend if you ever have that chance. If you are taking a cruise which stops in Cape Town then this is the one excursion that I would definitely recommend you take.

    I want to go on safari but I am worried about being eaten by a lion. Is this common? I was told that in Indian you can be killed by a Tiger, but that you can also be killed by a salad.

    I would like to see a giraffe at close quarters. Do you think the cruise ship officers would allow me to take a small one back on board to keep as a pet?

      The Giraffe’s were amazing! I think even a small one would be too tall for a for the cruise ship corridors! Shame though!
