Cruise Description

Unspoiled nature, encounters with populations respecting their ancestral traditions, observation of exceptional biodiversity: this is the programme that PONANT is proposing during a 9-day circuit in the Bissagos Islands. You can experience this exceptionalcruise, tinged with adventure, aboard LeDumont-d'Urville.

The Bissagos archipelago, located off the coast of Guinea-Bissau, 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. Nestling in the heart of an environment which often remains untouched by humans, they offer the rare visitors who explore them the opportunity for a unique and authentic experience.

During your Zodiac® excursions, 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. Birds of prey, pelicans, monkeys, sea turtles, crocodiles, saltwaterhippos and all kinds of snakes are at home here.

During your trip, you will also meet the Bidyogo people, particularly on the islands of Caravela and Orango. This will be an opportunity to discover their way of life, which has not changed for thousands of years. Theirs is a matriarchalsociety centred on the sacred.

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