If you’re going to be staying in paradise then you might as well do it in style and from chauffeur driven cars to cocktails as the sun sets, Mauritius is all about the VIP lifestyle. What better way to make the most of the island than by planning your own itinerary as your private driver takes you shopping at the markets or outlet stores? Of course, if you fancy a more cultural drive then ask ‘James’ to take in the botanical gardens, rum museums and plantation houses by following la Route du Thé. Dolphin spotting, creole cuisine, sumptuous swimming, whatever floats your luxury boat, this is your chance to really make the most of Mauritius in style. Prices from £159 per car per day.
If you’re looking to discover the animals, birds and plants that call Mauritius their home then a trip to Black River Gorge national park, is an absolute must. With trekking trails, picnic spots and more unique species than you can shake a pink pigeon’s tail feather at, this is an extraordinary excursion for all amateur naturalists. Aside from the craters and lakes of Black River Gorge, a trip to the north-west of the island presents an altogether more aquatic experience as the Balaclava Marine Park is renowned for its coral reefs, tropical lagoons and turtle breeding grounds. With highlands, plateaus and fields of sugar cane in between, Mauritius is naturally a scenic sensation. Our Scenic South tour (from £91) is an all-in-one tour combining all the elements that makes Mauritius so unique, including the Black River Gorge, secrets of rum-making is unveiled at La Rhumerie de Chamarel and a variety of birds and animals at Casela Nature & Leisure Park.
