DISCOVER THE KIMBERLEY'S ANCIENT LANDSCAPES ON A MODERN SMALL SHIP EXPEDITION The Kimberley, one of the world’s last great wilderness frontiers, is best experienced on a luxury small expedition ship. With PONANT, World Leader of Luxury Expeditions, explore one of the oldest of regions aboard the newest of ships, Le Lapérouse, the youngest and most environmentally sustainable vessel in the Kimberley. In a Zodiac®, accompanied by an experienced Expedition Team, navigate through mangroves, home to saltwater crocodiles, venture beneath the towering waterfalls, marvel at extraordinary tidal movements, and see ancient Aboriginal Gwion Gwion rock art galleries. You may even get the chance to witness migrating humpback whales on your journey. Choose our optional excursions and experience a helicopter flight over the majestic Mitchell Falls, a scenic flight in a vintage Grumman Mallard over the picturesque North Kimberley Coast or the Buccaneer Archipelago. Thrill seekers can also take a fast boat ride through the Horizontal Falls!
