Mauritius Exotic Insights
South Coast, Mauritius
Discover the local sights and sounds of Mauritius on this scenic tour to some of the island's most interesting and breathtaking attractions, combining nature and gastronomy for an unforgettable day out.
This full day tour starts at the Bois Chéri Tea Plantation, where you can learn about the tea making process from plant to cup and try a range of teas whilst enjoying a captivating view over the plains. Next you will be transported back in time to a traditional colonial house in Saint Aubin, built around an ancient sugar mill chimney and offering a chance to observe all the manufacturing stages of sugar milling as well as how the vanilla orchid is transformed into the vanilla bean in the Vanilla House. A delicious local lunch is served at the Andrea Lodges nature sanctuary before you are escorted to 'La Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes', a nature park filled with animals such as crocodiles, monkeys and tortoises. The last stop takes you to 'Gris Gris', a grassy clifftop where you can admire the power of nature with views of the crashing waves against the black rock coastline, a true contrast to the many reef-protected beaches of the island of Mauritius.
