Description

Discover the South West of Mauritius with a private 8-hour Mauritius tour. The driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the various sights and attractions below. You will get to explore at your own pace while the driver waits for you.

Enjoy the 360 degree views from the top of the Trou aux Cerfs volcano while taking a stroll around the crater. This dormant volcano stands at around 600 metre above sea level, and on clear days offers a breath-taking panoramic view of the island.

Drive by the Mare-aux-Vacoas, Mauritius’ largest reservoir, on the way to Grand Bassin, a tranquil and serene crater lake considered sacred by the Hindu population. Discover the Hindu culture by visiting the temples around the lake and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surroundings. You will also be amazed by the tall statue of Shiva and the view from the highest temple. Be sure to watch out for the monkeys and wildlife. Note: It may not be possible to make this stop in the month of February or March as the area is also a pilgrimage site during the festival of Mahashivaratree.

Nature lovers will enjoy the incredible views of the Black River Gorges, the largest national park in Mauritius. Covering an area of 6754 hectares, the park is home to numerous endemic flora and fauna and provides visitors with beautiful hikes, with varying levels of difficulty. During your drive through the park and Plaine des Champagnes, you will also get to stop and admire Alexandra falls and viewpoint, and if they’re in season, like the locals, you’ll want to pick a few goyaves de chine!

Visit the popular Chamarel, the coloured earth site, where in addition to the geological wonders of the seven coloured dunes, you can view the Chamarel Falls, the most famous waterfall in Mauritius! And, make sure you stop by the giant tortoise pens before leaving the park!

This was an excellent tour. The driver took is everywhere with no complaints. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the sites he was showing us too so that made it even better.
