Discover paradise in the Seychelles; marvel at Reunion’s lush vistas; seek out Madagascar’s elusive wildlife; cruise Mayotte’s stunning lagoon; and much more. Madagascar Madagascar Your journey starts in the city of Port Louis. Here you can sample the cultural diversity of the Mauritian way of life, from tea tasting in the beautiful setting of the Chinese Pagoda, to exploring the local Stamp Museum and the colourful central market. Outside the city you’ll find the stunning Pamplemousses Botanical Garden and the Casela National Park. Alternatively, a tour of the south of the island showcases breathtaking natural wonders, including the Trou-aux-Cerfs Volcano and the ‘Seven Coloured Earth’ sand dunes. Heading north, you’ll begin your exploration of the mesmerising Seychelles. With almost two days on Praslin Island and a full day on Mahé, there’s ample time to tick off the ‘must-do’ experiences. Explore the tropical forest of Vallée de Mai, home to huge Coco de Mer nuts and rare Black Parrots; encounter the famous giant land tortoises; and take your pick from the quintessential Seychelles beaches, boasting white sand lapped by crystal clear waters. Sandwiched between these calls is a magical cruise by Silhouette Island at sunset – an unforgettable spectacle. The marvels of Mayotte are then yours to experience during a stop at Mamoudzou, the French island’s sprawling capital. Don’t miss the chance to go snorkelling in the Indian Ocean’s largest lagoon. It is home to over 250 different species of hard coral and is teeming with a variety of marine life. Or perhaps venture deep into the island’s lush landscapes and scale the rolling peaks for incredible vistas. Two unforgettable days follow as Boudicca arrives at the natural wonderland of Madagascar, where you’ll have numerous chances to spot fascinating wildlife, such as lemurs, chameleons, geckos and snakes. Your first port of call is Hell-Ville, which is perfectly placed for tours to Nosy Be’s tropical rainforests. The 740-hectare Lokobe National Park is also worth a visit, while a trip to the island of Nosy Komba offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time with lemurs in their natural habitat. Next is Diego Suarez, where tours to the impressive Amber Mountain National Park are not to be missed. Before returning to Mauritius, the diverse landscapes of Reunion Island, seen on a hike or an exhilarating helicopter tour, will be the perfect end to your exotic adventure.
