Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

1. Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic tour of the wilder landscape of southwest Mauritius. Stop at the volcanic crater of Trou Aux Cerfs, where you can enjoy a panoramic view across almost the entire island. Visit the ship model factory in Curepipe where their craftsmen are adept in the art of miniaturization and the techniques of replica work. You will then head to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, the most important place of worship for Mauritian Hindus and make a short drive to the Black River Gorges and stop at the Black River View Point, to see the island’s endemic flora and fauna. Visit La Rhumerie de Chamarel to learn about the various stages involved in making the local rum, before tasting the end product! A delicious gourmet lunch will then be served in a local restaurant. After lunch, the drive continues to Chamarel Village to admire the 90-meter high Chamarel Waterfall and curious 7-Coloured Earth, a natural phenomenon caused when basaltic lava converts the clay mineral into vibrant shades of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow. Take a winding drive to the southwest corner of Mauritius, and enjoy the drive through Macondé Bridge for panoramic views across the Baie Du Cap River.

Absolutely recommendable day trip for every Mauritius vacationer! In addition, our guide "Minta" made the day very entertaining and amusing -> if you book the German tour, you should definitely ask for her!

Very interesting and informative tour, which also addressed the interests of the participants. After the introductory phase (and the rum tasting) it was definitely a fun group!

It was a great trip with lots of great memories tasting awesome rum. To see how this is made, mega.

Thanks Audrey, we had a lovely time and we got to see so many things. Would definitely recommend!

The tour guide Dina was very nice and told a lot of interesting things about the country.
