Description

Discover an authentic and unspoiled region of Mauritius with an expert guide on a one-day excursion!

After a transfer from your hotel with a small group in the early morning, you'll arrive at the Domaine des Aubineaux and explore the colonial house built in 1872. Head back to the Bois-Chéri tea plantation for a tour of the factory and museum followed by a tea tasting.

Further south, you'll discover La Vanille Nature Park (crocodile Park) and the Domaine de Saint-Aubin (vanilla and anthurium plantation, former cigar factory and Rum distillery). Dig into lunch on site and enjoy a rum tasting.

In the afternoon, you'll drive back to the south coast of the island, and your last stop off will be at some amazing viewpoints: Gris-Gris, with La Roche qui Pleure (the weeping rock) at the southern tip. 

You'll be taken back to your accommodation after a day touring the unspoiled coast of the island.
