Join PONANT’s First Online Event and spot the Kimberley’s ‘Big 5’…

August 24, 2020 Cruise No Comments Email Email

We all know of Africa’s famed ‘Big 5’, the wild animals that are such a magnet for travellers from around the world. Next month, PONANT Yacht Cruises & Expeditions are inviting avid adventurers and keen explorers to join them and spot the ‘Big 5’… in the Kimberley!

Hosting their first live online event on Tuesday 1 September, PONANT gives you the opportunity to discover Australia’s Kimberley’s ‘Big 5’, some of the top experiences to have along this magnificent North West coastal jewel.

On Tuesday 1 September, attendees will be able to tune in and listen to a panel of PONANT’s in-house Kimberley experts – Mick Fogg and Sandrine Erwin-Rose. As regular expedition leaders to the Kimberley (Mick has undertaken well over 130 expeditions there), they are joining host and Business Development Manager Craig Farrell, for PONANT’s first online live event.

“I am excited to point out that we have our own Big 5 experiences right here in the Kimberley – equally compelling for adventurers, photographers, wildlife lovers, as well as those interested in geology, anthropology and ancient rock art” explains Deb Corbett, PONANT’s General Manager Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific. “And I cannot think of a more appropriate and experienced duo than Mick and Sandrine to share with you the highlights and experiences that draw them back each year.”
