What's Included

PONANT invites you on an expedition cruise in the Indian Ocean to discover ‘the island continent’ of Madagascar. From the Seychelles to Mauritius, set off for 16 days aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville between beaches, dives, encounters with local populations and the discovery of endemic fauna and flora in rarely visited places of stunning natural beauty.

From Victoria on the island of Mahé, you will first sail to La Digue, a veritable picture-postcard of the Seychelles: palm trees, granite rocks, white sand and crystal-clear waters.

Your ship will then set sail for the northern tip of Madagascar. You will be dazzled by the beauty of the deserted beaches and preserved coral reefs of the idyllic islets in the Nosy Hara, Nosy Komba and Nosy Tanikely marine parks, renowned for their fabulous underwater life.

In Majunga, you will explore Ankarafantsika National Park, home to numerous bird and lemur species.

After exploring the picturesque and sumptuous city of Belo sur Mer, Le Dumont-d’Urville will then sail towards the wild expanses of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserves in the south-west of Madagascar. Near the mouth of the Onilahu RiverTulear enjoys an exceptional flora that will delight botany lovers.

Along the immense beaches edged with dunes in Sarodrano, you will experience an exceptional encounter with one of the planet’s last ‘sea nomad’ people, the Vezo. You will discover their fishing villages and ancestral maritime know-how.

Out at sea await turquoise waters, the magnificent coral reefs and the natural pools of Nosy Ve, an islet of white sand that shelters a large colony of red-tailed tropicbirds.

After calling at Pointe des Galets on La Réunion islandLe Dumont-d’Urville will reach Port Louis in Mauritius, where this unforgettable cruise will come to an end.

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
