Mauritius may be small but she has much to see. This tour packs in the Pamplemousse Botanical Garden, St François d'Assise church, the citadel and even some free time to shop at the Caudan Waterfront.
The morning begins rolling through the green interior of Mauritius to admire the pretty St François d'Assise church before crossing the street to Pamplemousse Gardens. The oldest botanical gardens in the southern hemisphere, you'll explore more than 500 rare plant species sprouting among the shady palm avenues and lily ponds.
Heading to one of the island's best panoramic viewpoints at 'La Citadelle', or Fort Adelaide as it's also known, your guide will point out the Champs de Mars racecourse and the Port Louis city skyline. Sandwiched between a sweeping harbour and a series of mountain peaks, you've time to hit the old craft bazaar or the modern boutiques down by Caudan Waterfront.
