A Glimpse of the South


per person

This tour has been designed with great diligence and care for nature lovers!

Your trip begins at our tourists’ most loved old ship models factory. There you will watch the art of miniaturization mastered by the experienced craftsmen in producing replicas of ships of the Mauritian colonisation period and those encountered in the Spice and Silk Routes. You will enjoy a nice presentation by the guide about the production process. Only the finest materials are used for the production of our ship models. Buy a replica to bring back home as a souvenir or gift and benefit from a tax refund at the airport and a certificate of authenticity! Your reconnection with nature starts by the visit to Trou aux Cerfs, a dormant volcano found in the middle of Curepipe Town. Our next stop will be at Ganga Talao (Grand Bassin). Enjoy the silence and coolness of this pious place of worship of our Hindu population. Don’t miss to take some photos with the giant statues of the Hindu gods which stands along the volcanic lake. We shall now proceed to the Black River Gorges to contemplate the beauty of the Black River Mountain Range. Take a moment to watch our Wild Mauritian Monkeys and Pailleen Queue in their natural habitat. You may buy some Mauritian souvenirs and Cashmere from our merchants there. For your lunch, you will have the choice to either try our typical island dishes or a gastronomic lunch while you watch the scenery from the mountain flanks of the Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire. Our next stop is at our iconic Chamarel 7-coloured earth and its gigantic waterfall. This is one of the most beautiful places in Mauritius to watch the natural phenomenon and reliefs produced by an extinguishing volcano during its last eruption! We shall stop at a few places for you to enjoy some natural beauties while we are heading to the famous Macondé. We shall reach there at sunset for you to enjoy this place at its best! Don’t forget to take out your camera for some panoramic photos! Enjoy your day!
