The discovery of the unexpected natural beauties of Mauritius begins with the dormant volcano 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 of the reproductions of historic sailing ships.
The view of the largest statue of a woman’s divinity in the world, the goddess Durga and the imposing statue of the God Shiva, both measuring 33m high will introduce you into the mystical atmosphere of Hinduism. The statues dominate the Grand Bassin sacred lake, surrounded by picturesque temples and other statues of Hindu deities, also inhabited by monkeys and giants eels.
After a stop on a panoramic terrace overlooking the forests of the Black River Gorges Park, you will have lunch in a typical Mauritian restaurant.
Among plantations of sugarcane, bananas, pineapple, coffee and other tropical fruits you will arrive in Chamarel where, enchanted by the highest waterfalls of the island and the charm of the seven colored earth, you will meet the giant tortoise. The final step of your adventure will be a terrace overlooking the sea from where you will admire a fantastic landscape of Benitiers Island and the famous mountain of Le Morne Brabant.
