Stroll in the Past
Take a step back in time to the past of Mauritius. Your day will begin in the botanic gardens in Pamplemousses which first opened in 1770 and is the oldest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. The next stops will be L’Aventure du Sucre, a museum that showcases the history of sugar production on the island, and the 16th-Century Citadel of Port Louis which is located in the capital city.
The southern half of Mauritius is naturally spectacular, both along its coast and inland. This full-day tour begins in Trou aux cerfs, a dormant volcano which has a sacred lake in its crater. Continue on to the jewel in the island's crown, Black River Gorges National Park with its forest-clad hills, post-card worthy views and waterfalls, before visiting the Rhumerie de Chamarel, where the island's renowned rum is created, and the vibrant Seven Coloured Earth.
