The discovery of the unexpected natural beauties of Mauritius begins with the unique volcanic crater of Trou aux Cerfs, which offers a magnificent view over the island. A stop in the model ship factory reveals the great refinement and detail with which are made reproductions of historic sailing ships.

Of 36m high the statue dominates the Grand Bassin sacred lake, where we find picturesque temples and statues of Hindu deities and it is also inhabited by monkeys and giants eels. After a stop on a panoramic terrace overlooking the forests of the Black River Gorges Park, we will have lunch in a typical restaurant in the green vegetation.
