This 15-night voyage combines an extensive exploration of three frontier islands that stand at the confluence of Africa, Europe, and Asia – the northern coastline of Madagascar, the isolated island of Reunion, and the remote atolls of the southern Seychelles.
Spend two days at Aldabra Atoll, the world’s second-largest coral atoll, home to the largest colony of wild giant tortoises. Venture onto the shores of Madagascar, famed for the diversity of its rare wildlife and landscape, with 90% of Madagascar’s species found nowhere else on Earth. Visit Masaola National Park and Nosy Mangabe to spot lemurs in their natural habitats. Visit the ylang-ylang, coffee, pepper, and vanilla plantations at Nosy Be. Discover the small coastal island of Île Sainte-Marie and its fascinating pirate history. Finally, spend two days exploring the volcanic cirques and savouring Creole cuisine in Réunion before arriving at Port Louis, Mauritius.
