This is a private full day tour in the South East region of Mauritius themed around scenic and historical views combined with the wild untouched side of the island.
Following a pickup from your accommodation, drive along the tea route to make a first stop at Bois Cheri tea factory for a guided tour to learn more about tea production. Enjoy a complimentary tea tasting session at the tea estate’s uphill restaurant that overlooks a natural lake.
Next, head to La Vanille Nature Reserve for a close encounter with giant tortoises and Nile crocodiles before making another stop at a former sugarcane plantation estate at Saint Aubin. A magnificent colonial house sits in that estate surrounded by a tropical garden and its adjacent rum distillery and farm. Sample local rums produced in the distillery and enjoy fruits from the farm.
End the tour with a stop to Gris Gris coastline at the very south end of Mauritius to catch a great view of the Indian Ocean and stand on the cliff to witness the rough sea as its strong waves crash into the reefs.
