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 and taste the local rum before savoring a delicious lunch at a restaurant. See the volcanic crater of Trou Aux Cerfs, Chamarel Waterfall, 7-Colored Earth, La Rhumerie de Chamarel, and more with a guide.  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 the 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.

I am very grateful for Mr Jay for his driving ethics, tour guide knowledge, friendliness, hospitality, and gentleness with me and my partner throughout the trip. He was amazing with explaining not just the actual itinerary but random fun facts about the flora and fauna of Mauritius. I’ve appreciated the culture more because of his expertise. We had a private tour and with this package, we really didn’t have to queue anywhere. It was the VIP feeling. The lunch was great too and decent Mauritian speciality - curry. We had extra stuff outside the itinerary that Mr Jay kindly let us experience - the overlooking view of the West, and sugar cane experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed this trip and I highly recommend this company and Mr Jay!

Both of us enjoyed our day visiting the various locations. Sometimes felt a little rushed. Wasn’t to bothered by mode ship factory as this just seems a thing to try and get you to buy one (you can ask to skip this). Enjoyed visiting the temple and other locations. Guide was knowledgeable especially around the Hindu faith and was kind enough to show us some traditions inside the temple. Overall we enjoyed our day.

The tour starts on time and our guide Melissa was very informative, nice and friendly. The tour itself includes many nice places to see and very well organized. The lunch and Rum tasting was excellent. We really enjoy the outstanding nature. Don't forget to take some fruits if you want to present them in the Temple. Highly recommended !!

the best experience someone can have in Mauritius. The guide explains us a lot of things about all the sights and he was so kind and smiling a time.

Very well organised trip. The tour guide was super friendly, very knowledgeable and communicatiove
