Board L'Austral for a fabulous expedition cruise between Praia and Dakar. This 9-day adventure will enable you to discover Cape Verde and the Bijagos, two exceptional archipelagos including wild nature, cultural heritage and encounters with the local populations.

Your cruise will start on the island of Santiago, in Praia, the Cape Verde capital, where you will have the opportunity to visit the historic centre of Ribeira Grande, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Further north, you will visit Mindelo, the cultural capital of Cape Verde, where the famous morna singer Cesaria Evora was born.

A gigantic volcanic cone emerging from the Ocean, Fogo or “volcano island” is the most unusual in the Cape Verde archipelago. With scenery of savannah and fields of sugar cane, scattered with peaceful hamlets, Fogo will offer you extraordinary panoramas.

You will discover the long white sandy beaches and the dunes of the island of Boa Vista, before heading to the Bijagos archipelago.

Located off the coast of Guinea-Bissau, this archipelago is one of the most preserved and protected on the planet. Classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, it is made up of 88 islands, most of which are uninhabited and nestling in the heart of an environment which often remains untouched by humans.

During your Zodiac® outings, you will get as close as possible to nature, between pale-sand beaches, mangrove stretching as far as the eye can see, savannah, palm trees and baobabs.

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
