It would help if you are a bit more precise; "Europe" and "Africa" are big.
If you mean from some/ anyplace in southern Europe to some/ anyplace in northern Africa, most folks do
1. regular passenger/ vehicle ferries from Spain/ Algeciras to Morocco/Tangier; or to Morocco/ via Ceuta (Spanish territory);
2. less regular passenger/ vehicle ferries from France/ Marseilles or Italy/
Genoa to Tunisia/ Tunis;
3. maybe recently started "RoRo" vehicle/ ferry service from Turkey/ Mersin to
Egypt/ Port Said.
You'll find lots more detail in these specific HUBB sub-forums for "Morocco,"
"Sahara," "Middle East," etc.
Some folks do longer seafreight from various EU seaports to Senegal/ Dakar;
or even South Africa/ Cape Town; or
airfreight from various EU gateways to South Africa/ Jo'burg or Cape Town.
