“An exploration of the lush inland parts of Mauritius with some majestic sceneries.”
Overview of Excursion:
Discover the lush inland parts of Mauritius and take in some majestic sceneries. Check out the view from the top of a dormant volcano before breathing in the natural and spiritual beauty of a sacred lake. Next, you will admire the wild rolling landscape of the Black River Gorges National Park. Then head further south-west to capture the various wonders of Chamarel. An introduction to the secrets of rum-making will make this tour complete.
Standing atop the Trou aux Cerfs, guests will be able to enjoy spectacular 360° views stretching all the way to the sea. They will also catch a glimpse of nature’s beauty on the way to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, which is filled with a spiritual atmosphere. After admiring jaw-dropping views of the Black River Gorges National Park, which has a high proportion of endemic plants and animal species, the quaint village of Chamarel is home to such attractions as a splendid 300-foot waterfall and the curious geological phenomenon of the Seven-Coloured Earth, which is one of the most-visited sites in Mauritius. The Rhumerie de Chamarel offers a guided distillery tour and a rum tasting.
