Cruise Description

14 Night Cruise sailing from Port Louis roundtrip aboard Boudicca.

Go in search of stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and once-in-a-lifetime experiences on this epic 14 night exotic voyage aboard Boudicca, hopping between some of the most beautiful, culturally-diverse and captivating islands in the Indian Ocean.

This incredible journey begins in Port Louis, a city renowned for its mix of cultures, religions and ethnicities. Sample the diversity of the Mauritian lifestyle, with time to taste local teas in the beautiful Chinese Pagoda, stop by the local stamp museum, explore the colourful central market and much more before you set sail. Alternatively you could tour to Casela National Park and walk with lions; or head to the south of the island, a showcase of breathtaking natural wonders including the Trou-aux-Cerfs Volcano and the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes. Heading north, an abundance of ‘must-do’ experiences will await you in the Seychelles. With almost two days on Praslin Island and a full day on Mahé, you could opt to explore the UNESCO-listed forests of Vallee De Mai to marvel at huge Coco de Mer nuts and spot rare Black Parrots; discover paradise at Anse Lazio Beach; and take a boat tour to encounter giant land tortoises on uninhabited Moyenne Island. Sandwiched between these calls is a magical cruise by Silhouette Island at sunset – a simply unforgettable spectacle.

The marvels of Mayotte are yours to uncover during a day in Mamoudzou, the French island’s sprawling capital. Don’t miss the chance to snorkel the Indian Ocean’s largest lagoon; home to over 250 diverse species of hard coral and teeming with a wide variety of tropical fish and other marine life. Or on dry land, you may prefer to explore Mayotte’s lush landscapes, taking in the beautiful botanical gardens and rolling peaks. Two unforgettable days follow as Boudicca arrives at Madagascar, a world-famous natural wonderland home to fascinating wildlife such as lemurs, chameleons, geckos and snakes. You can delve into Nosy Be’s tropical rainforests of the 740-hectare Lokobe National Park; or take a boat tour to the island of Nosy Komba to see black and brown lemurs in their natural habitat from Hell-Ville, and then visit the impressive Amber Mountain National Park during a call into Diego Suarez. Before returning to Mauritius, you can also savour the sweeping volcanic landscapes of Reunion Island – best seen on a hike or exhilarating helicopter tour – from Port Reunion.
