Mauritius Island Cruises

From the enticing markets of Zanzibar to the spectacular coral reefs of Mayotte, from the alluring aroma of Nosy Bé to the beaches of Mauritius, we reveal the rare beauty of the Indian Ocean.

Magic of Mauritius Cruise

On La Réunion, you can explore the dramatic interior of forested gorges and awesome craters, before relaxing on the fabulous beaches of neighbouring Mauritius - a heaven of an island. Four nights on the Kenyan coast, with the opportunity to take an optional safari in search of lion, elephant and zebra, make the perfect end to a truly magical holiday.

15 nights (9 night cruise, 5 nights hotel, 1 night aircraft)
