Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

Your Bolette cruise from Southampton has been thoughtfully planned to take you through the untamed regions of South America, Australia, and the vast plains of Africa. Some of the world's most stunning vistas can be witnessed here, along with the iconic sights of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House, Easter Island, renowned for its mysterious Moai statues carved out of volcanic rock, and lesser-known gems like Robinson Crusoe Island, which was once home to the marooned Scottish explorer Alexander Selkirk. In South America, take in the samba rhythm of Rio de Janeiro or the intense and passionate Argentine tango in Buenos Aires, while in Australia, discover its distinctive Aboriginal culture and gain more knowledge about their traditions, identity, and legacy. Meanwhile, from Gqeberha, you can go in search of the Big Five on a thrilling game drive, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Your time spent on board Bolette is 85 nights, but please allow for your return flight from Cape Town to the UK.

Highlights

Beautiful views of the Chilean Fjords

Explore icy landscapes and vast African plains

The Magellan Strait, named after the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan and flanked by the rocky mountains of southern Chile, is renowned as one of the most difficult sailing routes in the world due to its narrowness. From Bolette's decks, you can admire this remarkable frozen environment, surrounded by beautiful blue-tinged glaciers, snow-capped mountains, frozen waterfalls, and deep inlets at every turn. In stark contrast to these icy settings, Africa's huge plains provide possibilities to seek out the Big Five or be in awe of the world's oldest desert, the Namib.

Aboriginal culture show, Australia

Discover the Australian way of life

Your voyage on board Bolette will take you on an exciting adventure throughout the world, allowing you to experience a wide diversity of cultures. Australia has a cosmopolitan culture with a strong Aboriginal heritage that has been passed down to subsequent generations through music, dance, painting, and storytelling. Meanwhile, Australians are well-known for their love of the outdoors, and many of their everyday activities include going to the beach, playing sports, hiking, and exploring national parks and nature reserves. Cafe culture is particularly prominent here, so you may choose to relax over brunch or find vibrant arts and culture scenes.
