Description

Discover the fascinating history of Mauritius, its unique flora and fauna, and the beauty of the South East with our 8-hour Mauritius History and Eco tour. The driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the various sights and attractions below. You will get to explore at your own pace while the driver waits for you.

Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve
Your first stop will be at Pointe Jérome, where you will embark on a small boat that will take you across the turquoise waters to Ile aux Aigrettes, a small coralline limestone island situated in the South East of Mauritius. Declared a nature reserve in 1965, this island is home to unique flora and fauna, that was once considered on the verge of extinction. When you arrive on the island, you will meet one of the trained and knowledgeable rangers who will accompany you on a guided 1.5 to 2 hour hike around the island. As a result of the successful conservation efforts by scientists on the island, you will have the opportunity to view unique species such as the Mauritian Fody, Pink Pigeon, giant Aldabra Tortoise, and the Ornate Day Gecko in a safe and protected environment. You will also discover the original trees and vegetation that, before the arrival of man, covered Mauritius and its surrounding islands.

Blue Bay Beach
You will then head to Blue Bay for a few hours of relaxation on one of the most beautiful beaches of Mauritius. Aptly named Blue Bay, this beach stuns visitors and locals alike with its various shades of blue. You will be able to spend some time strolling along the white sandy beach, taking a dip in the lagoon, and trying out some of the delicious street food from the various beach vendors.

Historical Village of Mahébourg
Originally founded by the Dutch and then later transformed into a busy port by the French, the village of Mahébourg is now a quiet, laid-back coastal village, full of history and charm. During your drive through the village, you will discover the old buildings and streets, reminiscent of the colonial era. You will be able to stop by the traditional market (on Mondays) and the waterfront, where you can purchase souvenirs.

National History Museum (Naval Museum)
During this stop, you will get to discover the fascinating history of Mauritius through a collection of curated artifacts, historical documents, and maps, housed in the Gheude Castle, an old French colonial mansion, built around 1772.
