Itinerary

Itenirary
Stop 1 - Mare Aux Vacoas Reservoir
Our guide will pick you up at 8h30 am from your hotel, and our first stop will be at Mare Aux Vacoas Reservoir. Constructed in 1885, the reservoir is the biggest in Mauritius with a capacity of 25.90 million cubic meters. The region also takes pride in its constant breeze of freshness as its surrounded by a dense rain-forest of several tropical trees such as eucalyptus, pine and casuarinas.
Itenirary
Stop 2 - Grand Bassin Sacred Lake
You will not want to miss a visit to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin while you are in Mauritius. Famed as the largest Hindu temple on the island, this place is more peaceful and tranquil than it first seems. Several devotees are found praying to Hindu deities, offering fruits and light-scent incense, creating a spiritual atmosphere in the calm and tranquil surrounding.

Due to the abundance of fruits on sight during the prayers, you can spot the greedy monkeys sometimes sneaking out from the trees to take advantage of the successful situation. Our guide will take you to the Hanuman Statue located on top of the hill. It requires a fairly long climb but offers a rewarding view overlooking the sacred lake with stunning views of the island. Visitors will also be able to see the incredible 108-foot statue of Lord Shiva and Lord Durga, which is one of the biggest of its kind ever constructed in the world.
Itenirary
Stop 3 - Alexandra Falls
The peaceful surrounding of Alexandra Falls offers a feel of the island’s past as it’s sheltered with a rich and untouched rain-forest with around 200 trees species, shrubs, plants and wildlife. Unwind with your loved ones as you listen to the falls from a distance comforted by melodious sounds.
Itenirary
Stop 4 - Bassin Blanc
Let’s make a quick stop at the dormant volcano of Bassin Blanc. Located in the Savanne District on the southwest of the island, the lake is fed mostly from rainwater but appears white when seen from the sky. As we make our way down the hill towards Le Morne, take pleasure in the dominating views of the south coast of Mauritius.
Itenirary
Stop 5 - Vallee Des Couleurs Nature Park
You will love the quiet backdrop at Vallee Des Couleurs. Take a walk around the wooden deck, admire the beautiful views of the valley and lake or head over to the viewpoint next to the restaurant to catch a glimpse of the couloured earth, the emblem of the valley, which is unique to Mauritius.

Itenirary

When was slavery abolished in Mauritius?
Slavery in Mauritius was abolished on February 1, 1835. An undeserving misunderstanding occurred when the police expedition travelled to inform the slaves of their freedom. Since they were suffering from hardship, they jumped from the top of the mountain to free themselves, thinking that they were going to be apprehended again.

The memories of slavery are a vital part of the local culture as it connects the ancestors of different communities from a sorrowful past.
