Experience Africa

Leave the hassle, the heat and the long drives of Africa on land where it belongs. Our West Africa cruises introduce you to exotic bird life, incredible landscapes, compelling cultural traditions and powerful human history of this underexplored part of Africa from a convenient and comfortable hotel that goes where you go.

Not Your Typical Cruise

Explore the roots of voodoo, spot rare birds with the help of expert naturalists, sample the continent’s top wines with a qualified sommelier and learn about one of the darkest eras in human history—the slave trade—with local educators. Throw in ample amounts of sun along with a little downtime and you’ve got yourself an epic adventure.

Sail with the Best in the Business

The staff and crew of the MS Expedition share a passion for sea travel and offer a diverse range of expertise—literally everything from geology to ornithology to history and more. All of them are on hand to answer questions and provide you with a comprehensive understanding of West Africa and its marine environment.
