Departure Date: 28/05/2020
Set sail for the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley, following this exceptional PONANT itinerary. From Darwin to Broome, embark aboard Le Lapérouse for an 11-day expedition cruise to one of the last unspoiled regions on the planet.
In one of the most picturesque parts of the region, the Hunter River, you will see wild mangrove forests where saltwater crocodiles live along with many species of birds.
The highpoint of this cruise will undoubtedly be the discovery of the King George River and the majestic Twin Falls, the highest falls in Western Australia. You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire the Montgomery Reef, home to vast expanses of lagoons and immense coral reefs.
Le Lapérouse will take you along one of the most spectacular coasts in the entire region. With their falls, abrupt gorges, savannah, calm waters and desolate mountain chains, the wild lands of the Kimberley are the promise of an exceptional adventure.
We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and tide conditions. Landings on certain sites and the observation of certain wildlife cannot be guaranteed. They vary from day to day, making each PONANT cruise a unique experience. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, whilst complying with the necessary safety rules and precautions.
This cruise visits Darwin, Pulau Meatimiarang^, Wyndham#, King George River, Vansittart Bay, Swift Bay, Hunter River & Mitchell Falls, Collier Bay, Lacepede Islands and Broome. There are 10 departures to choose from between May to August 2020. Ask your Travel Counsellor for more information.
