Come aboard the Champlain, from the Ponant cruise line


Departing from Zanzibar, this archipelago, close to the Tanzanian coast, still retains an air of mystery and adventure. Nicknamed the “Spice Island”, Pemba is astonishing for the whiteness of its shores, the clarity of its turquoise waters, its tropical forest, its fertile land and its production of nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, turmeric and other peppers which have made its reputation.

You will then dock at Misali Island, a conservation area protected since 1998. Although fishing is prohibited, you can still swim and admire the infinite variety of underwater wildlife. Then, about 300 kilometres south of Dar es Salaam, the island of Kilwa Kisiwani is full of the remains of the port city that covers a large part of the island and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


The expedition will continue to Aldabra Atoll, considered one of the last unspoilt areas on our planet. Its three islands are a nature reserve listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (From February 2024)
