Mauritius Mini Guide

Mauritius is a favourable holiday destination with South Africans and it is easy to see why. It has idyllic tropical beaches, a varied but largely hot climate and an array of beautiful villages. Here are some of our recommended highlights of the island:
  • Visit Black River Gorges National Park in the hilly south-western part of Mauritius. Spend the day hiking and observing the stunning scenery that surrounds you.
  • Tourists will not want to miss the Crocodile and Giant Tortoises Park, get up close to these wonders and experience feeding and other exhibits.
  • Tamarind Falls is another scenic attraction in south west Mauritius. It is popular with hikers or evening spend a half day on a canyoning excursion.
  • The Jummah Mosque is located in the city of Port Louis and dates back to 1850. Marvel at the stunning combination of Indian, Creole and Islamic architecture.
