Ponant has announced a new expedition cruise through the Seychelles and the Zanzibar Archipelago off Tanzania.
Ports of call include La Digue Island, home to Anse Source d’Angent Beach (considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world); Misali Island, which became a protected conservation area in 1998 due to its marine biodiversity; and Astove Island, the southernmost island in the Seychelles known for the “Astove Wall” where the seafloor drops sharply to a depth of more than 130 feet.
In addition to exploring Unesco World Heritage Sites, including Kilwa Kisiwani Island, there will be opportunities to spot wildlife, like the indigenous Aldabra tortoises, which weigh up to 550 pounds.
There are two departures available: Dec. 16 and Dec. 28. Rates start at $6,860 per person, including a 30% Ponant bonus offer.
