Itinerary

When does my tour start?

This is a private tour

This excursion will give you a chance to appreciate some of the most atmospheric landscapes that the island of Mauritius has to offer its visitors. We will begin our journey of discovery of the southern part of the island from Curepipe, a road that leads up gently to Trou-aux-Cerfs, a dormant volcanic crater walled with a dense vegetation.

From there, enjoy a panoramic view over the island and its mountain ranges. Then proceed to Le Port to see expert craftsmen working on models of genuine 18th century sailing vessels. You can purchase ship replicas on display and have your purchases neatly packed for your journey home.

We will then proceed to Mangal Mahadev, the 108 feet Shiva statue then a stop to “Ganga Talao”, the river Ganges reincarnated in a holy lake and a pilgrimage spot for Hindus giving a great taste of our culture.

The trip then continues through the forest reserve of Plaine-Champagne, with photo stop at a viewpoint over the spectacular Black River Gorges. Down the fertile valley, the drive, lined with sugar cane fields and pineapple plantations leads to Chamarel where a magnificent waterfall and the unique seven-coloured earths of Chamarel awaits you.

The unusual mounds of undulating land stretching in contrasting rainbow-coloured layers of earth are believed to be of volcanic origin. On the return journey, stop at the viewpoint dominated by Le Morne Mountain – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ile aux Benitiers and the South-Western Coastline for some memorable holiday pictures.
