Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

Your Bolette cruise from Sydney has been designed to include chances to encounter fascinating nature and wildlife and explore iconic sites like Sydney's Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

You will have opportunities to explore the changing landscapes of Reunion Island with its volcanoes and lava tubes awaiting exploration, relax on the pristine beaches of Mauritius, and then go in search of the magnificent Big Five from Gqeberha on safari, along with an abundance of other wildlife and birdlife. 

Your time spent on board Bolette is 29 nights, but please allow for your flights to Sydney and from Cape Town to the UK.

Uncover a diverse range of cultures

During this cruise, you will have the chance to explore various cultures around the globe. In Australia, you can delve into the thriving Aboriginal culture and gain insight into their traditions, identity, and heritage, while in Melbourne, you can step back in time and hear about the Gold Rush of the 1800's at the Sovereign Hill Gold Mine and experience the excitement the miners felt as you explore the traditional gold smelting workshop and mine. When you are in South Africa, you may wish to seize the opportunity to discover the historical significance of Signal Hill and learn about the inspirational life of Nelson Mandela in Cape Town.

Go in search of native wildlife

Bolette will take you on an adventure to witness some of the world's most amazing wildlife. While in Australia, join us on a guided tour where you will be able to interact with koalas, kangaroos, and other native species such as the quokka, gaining insight into their habitats and reproduction; or discover the geological history and ancient rainforest of the Blue Mountains. No visit to South Africa would be the same without embarking on a quest to encounter the Big Five, so an exhilarating overland tour on safari to witness magnificent lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo creates lasting and cherished memories. You will also have the opportunity to see a wide variety of flora, including Baobab, fever and marula trees.
