Visit - Ile Aux Aigrettes
As the sun continues to rise, lets power up the engines to the charming isolated island of Ile Aux Aigrettes and discover the uninterrupted flora and fauna of the east scene of Mauritius. The park also serves as a home for several rare and endemic bird species, which visitors can spot while wandering through the tranquil forest comforted by melodious sounds. The reptile species include the large, slow Telfairs Skink, several species of ornately coloured day gecko, and a population of non-indigenous Aldabra giant tortoises that were brought to the island to take over the important ecological role of the extinct Mauritian tortoises.

Visit - The Rault Biscuit Factory
Our next stop will take us back in time with a visit at the Rault Factory to discover how the Seneque family makes their unique biscuit of cassava. The biscuits are handmade from the cassavas that are grown in their surrounding garden, and the road that leads to the factory makes the visit even more pleasant as it is located in a quiet setting, surrounded by coconut, mango and cassava trees.
Visit - The hollanders tower & Frederik Hendrik Museum
As we drive on the coastal road in the east of the island, we will stop over at the Hollanders Tower that was used by the Dutch in the 18th century as a vantage point to observe the bay of Grand Port for incoming ships. The tower was later used by the French colony that invaded the island to keep guard of the attacks from the British, which were more frequent and intimidating. Ever since, it has remained untouched and is a memorial from the olden times of the island. Visitors will have a deeper insight into the history with a visit at the Frederick Hendrik Museum.
Visit - Old Grand Port
Witness the untouched canons in the village of Old Grant Port where the Dutch first landed in 1598 under the command of Wybrandt Van Warwyck.
