Your Morning's Itinerary

Step Into The Lush, Botanical World Of Pamplemousses Gardens

Our day of Mauritian culture and history begins with a morning pick up at your hotel lobby. Then we’ll begin our short drive to the district of Pamplemousses (meaning grapefruits in French!) located in the North West of the island, just above Port Louis.
Our first stop will be Sir Seewoosagur Botanical Gardens which date back to 1770, making them the oldest botanical gardens in the Southern hemisphere. Boasting a fantastic and extensive range of plant species like the giant Victoria Amazonica water lily, 80 different types of palm, as well as native spices and medicinal plants- it really is a treat for plant enthusiasts or indeed anyone with an appreciation for nature! Take as much time as you like to stroll through the gardens and enjoy the lush views, the many fragrances and countless blooms that surround you. Look out for the beautiful trees planted by world leaders and royalty including Princess Margaret, Francois Mitterand and Indira Gandhi!

The Afternoon Awaits...

Discover The Rich (and Sweet!) History Of This Remarkable Island

Continuing on our journey of Mauritian discovery, our next stop will be to L’Aventure du Sucre on the Beau Plan Estate; a former sugar cane factory lovingly restored into a wonderful museum that illustrates how this simple ingredient, which was once more sought after than gold, played a major role in Mauritian history and industry. You’ll get a chance to see the original factory machines and equipment, engaging exhibits and of course taste a range of fantastic local produce from the island including twelve different types of natural sugar, tropical jams, rum, and local sweets.
The estate also houses a delightful restaurant where we’ll have lunch and enjoy the views from its veranda overlooking the tropical countryside. You can expect to enjoy a meal bursting with island flavours and a special mix of Mauritian spices. For those with a sweet tooth, the restaurant also offers an incredible selection of desserts, including their famous crème brûlée with fresh vanilla.
After lunch we’ll pass by the boutique gift shop where you can sample and purchase a wonderful array of sugar products like infused rum, local candies and other sugar delicacies.
After a fun and informative trip, your guide will drive you back to your hotel, leaving you to enjoy the rest of the afternoon as you please.
