As I mentioned in my last to last post about Mauritius, I am back with this beautiful post set to guide you about some must things to see and do when you are on this beautiful volcanic island nation located in the Indian ocean. So come with me and explore!
1. CHAMAREL WATERFALL
Chamarel is the highest waterfall in Mauritius at 100 meters. This natural beauty spot is the perfect photo opportunity and certainly an impressive sight. Climb the stairs to the viewing platform at the top and take a look at the breathtaking waterfall as it hits the pool 100 meters below. This trip is usually combined with a ‘Visit to Seven Colored Earth’, which is made up of sand dunes of different distinct colors including reds, browns and purples. The dunes were created by volcanic rocks which cooled at different temperatures and became crushed into sand which then settled into different colors.
2. CASELA NATURE PARK SEGWAY TOUR
If you’re an adventure freak and animal lover, then you should not miss a visit to this absolutely adorable place! Here you can embrace the innovation of the modern Segway and embark on a safari like no other. The sight of African game animals roaming the savanna is truly majestic. Follow their footprints and use your guide’s expert tracking skills to stalk them and gaze over the island’s west coast from a strategic viewpoint.
Following a short safety briefing and orientation exercise, discover the 35-acre (14-ha) Casela National Park. Zip down trails, traversing the grassland and indigenous dry forest. Observe the roaming wildlife and enjoy their natural habitat—herds of African antelope and zebra as well as flocks of ostrich—all interacting in the balanced ecosystem.
See rare big cats like lions, cheetahs, and tigers. There’s even a chance to get up close and personal with these magnificent beasts. Look to the skies and trees, as this park is home to more than 1,500 bird species. This is a great chance to get close to the wildlife, since a Segway is much quieter than a car. Enjoy the park’s many great facilities and the panoramic views of the stunning coastline.
3. GOLF PASS FOR FOUR COURSES
Well, if you’re a golf lover like me and wish to try out your hands on it then this is the place for you and if you’re not a golf lover but like to bask in the glory of the serene greens, you should hang in out here!
Considered one of the top golfing destinations in the world, the island of Mauritius has a surprising number of courses. Now you can judge them for yourself by sampling 4 of the best. Included is the spectacular Le Touessrok. On its own tropical island (Ile de Cerfs), the course here is backed by Bernard Langher and consistently ranked by journalists as 1 of the world’s top 10.
Over the duration of 1 month, you can enjoy play on 3 more courses. Admire the breathtaking scenery at Tamarina, the Ernie Els-backed Anahita at the Four Seasons, and the Heritage Course at Bel-Ombre—all boasting jagged mountain backdrops to one side and the turquoise-blue of the Indian Ocean on the other.
4. ILE DEUX COCOS PRIVATE ISLAND DAY TRIP
The beautiful private island of Ile des Deux Cocos is a glittering gem in the middle of the protected Blue Bay Marine National Park. The island is fringed by the whitest sand beaches and most tranquil crystal-clear waters. You have plenty of free time to explore this island, great opportunities to swim, as well as time to enjoy a glass-bottom boat ride among the colorful fish and coral. Or just simply kick back and relax on the stunning beaches.
Indulge in a delicious buffet lunch with an array of delicious grills and salads accompanied by unlimited beer, wine, and soft drinks, all while listening to the sound of traditional local music. Celebrate the end of your day of luxury with a traditional rum cocktail before heading back to the mainland.
5. SOUTH COAST FULL DAY TOUR WITH LUNCH
Begin your South Coast adventure with a stroll in the tropical La Vanille Nature Reserve, with majestic giant tortoises plodding near you. Observe local crocodiles—the intimidating creatures use this site as an important breeding ground. The lush valley is home to a diverse array of flora and fauna. Pass the relaxing afternoon admiring truly natural beauty.
Learn about local vanilla cultivation at the Saint Aubin Sugar Estate. Its splendid gardens and grand colonial house provide idyllic surroundings. Enjoy a local lunch in this stunning spot, with the Atlantic Ocean relentlessly beating at the rocks below.
The sea cliff at Gris Gris is well known; the coral reef does not protect the island here. Here, visit a distillery where rum is made and enjoy a tasty sampling of local produce.
So guys! That’s all from my side , hope you will like it and add these places in your watch list while planning a trip to Mauritius…
