Exploring the Kimberley – with National Geographic
In partnership with National Geographic Expeditions.
Set sail for the wild and grandiose landscapes of the Kimberley, following this exceptional PONANT itinerary.
From Broome to Darwin, embark aboard Le Bellot for a 14-day expedition cruise to one of the last unspoiled regions on the planet.
Off the coast, in the Timor Sea, the Rowley Shoals, Browse Island and the Ashmore Reef nature reserve will reveal you an extraordinary underwater life that abounds in beautiful coral reefs.
You will also visit Collier Bay, where you will be able to admire a spectacular example of the impact of the tides cascading in mini-waterfalls as the entire Montgomery reef appears to rise from the turquoise-blue waters of the bay.
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 Riverand the majestic Twin Falls, the single drop waterfall in Western Australia.
Your ship will take you along one of the most spectacular coasts in the entire region.
With their falls, abrupt gorges, savannah, and incredibly rich seabed, 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.
