Discover The Best Things To Do In Mauritius
The Vanilla Nature Park
The Vanilla Nature Park is a zoological park created in 1985, covering a surface of five hectares in the south of Mauritius close to the village of Rivière des Anguilles. While the main attraction orbits around the Nile crocodiles, the establishment also proposes encounters with a huge number of other animal species while on your stroll, be it on foot or on the back of a donkey, in the middle of a humid tropical forest full of trees, plants and endemic flowers.
Île aux Aigrettes
Managed by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF) since 1985, this coral island of a surface area of 26 hectares was classified as a natural reserve since 1965. The excursions take place daily, departing from Pointe-Jerome. The motor boat cruises through the turquoise water before reaching this ecological mini-paradise.
As soon as he took office in 1735, he contributed to the expansion of the French settlements in the ‘Indian seas, Isle de France and Isle Bourbon’. Mahébourg is known for his naval museum, dedicated to the maritime history of the area and the famous naval battles which opposed the French to the British. It also shelters the Rault biscuit factory, specialised in the manioc biscuit starchy crop brought back from Brazil and naturalised thanks to Mahé de La Bourdonnais.
La Vallée de Ferney
The Vallée de Ferney, located in the Bambou mountains north of Mahébourg in Grand Port District, is a sanctuary of Mauritian biodiversity.
The Ferney Trail contributed to the fame of this place. But the excursions and the trekking also make the visitors discover the richness of the valley. This one shelters a native forest belonging to the last natural sanctuaries of Mauritius. Here lives side by side: the Ebony trees, cafés marron, takamakas, cacapoule lianas, the labourdanasia calophylloidest, Eugenia bojeria, araucarias (the despair of the monkey) and other invasive species such as the ravenalala, commonly called the traveller’s tree, all silent but majestic witnesses of the floral inheritance of the island.
