Top 5 Attractions in Mauritius
Situated in the Indian Ocean, you will find the beautiful island of Mauritius. Fabulous shopping, nightlife and plenty of activities await you when you visit this tropical paradise. Once the home of the now extinct Dodo bird, you can still see over 100 species of birds on the island, along with rusa deer, mongoose and macaques.
The Mauritius Horse Trails are one of the most popular places to visit. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, you can enjoy a wonderful day with the friendly, well-trained horses. Embark on a one hour trail ride for fun or take a three hour ride to the breath-taking Rochester Falls. At the Falls you can take a rest and swim in the beautiful waters while your horse gets a well-deserved rest. Travel along the sea for some fantastic scenery, or go inland for a look at the native flora and fauna all around you. Include a fabulous breakfast or lunch to complete your journey, or visit places such as the crocodile park or Combo National Park. You can plan a complete riding holiday that suits you, and even a birthday treasure hunt package.
If you feel the need for a super adrenaline rush, visit Skydive Mauritius. This tandem skydive experience will get your heart pumping like it never has before. Enjoy spectacular views and the thrill of a lifetime while you soar through the air. See the coastline and all of Mauritius from a whole new point of view and create memories you will cherish forever.
For an awesome day trip, check out Ile des DeuxCocos. Board a glass bottom boat and view some amazing sea life on your way to paradise. Once you arrive you can relax in a hammock, sip cocktails, and snorkel in the crystal blue waters that surround you. Excellent food, refreshing drinks and a day of relaxation and fun is guaranteed.
Mauritius Nature Trails are an exciting way to see the somewhat hidden parts of the island. Take in the beauty of the Tamarin Waterfalls, which can only be accessed by a four-wheel drive. During your journey you may be lucky enough to see the extremely rare pink pigeons. The views at points along the trail are absolutely stunning and will make your journey complete. Your guide can fill you in on the history of the island, and if your timing is right you will be able to taste the fresh sugar cane that is harvested here.
At Casela Nature and Leisure Park you can interact with lions, tigers and cheetahs, see monkeys and peacocks, and take a quad biking adventure you won't soon forget. You will feel as though you are on safari.
