Planning a family trip to Mauritius
It’s something that proves a revelation to many visitors as WAYN explained in this piece on why the island is just perfect for families. Move beyond the beautiful and luxurious surroundings and you’re soon exploring incredible wildlife, tropical gardens and a whole host of activities and experiences.
Whether it’s seeing the resident Giant tortoises and crocodiles at La Vanille Reserve des Mascareignes, looking wide-eyed at the oversized water lilies at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden or zip lining through the canopy there’s tons to do.
For a nice little introduction to some of the activities on offer check out the Travelling with Kids section on the Mauritius Tourism site. They’ve broken down some of the family experiences into: ‘Museums’; ‘zipping away’; ‘Feeding giraffes and walking with Lions’; ‘At home with dolphins’; and ‘Making friends with 100-year old tortoises’.
