Hike and Climb Le Morne Mountain in Mauritius
Begin your outdoor adventure with a short briefing, and your qualified mountaineer will lead to the mountain. This activity includes a total of 4 rock scrambling and climbing sections which is doable by participants with little to no experience in mountaineering. Enjoy a nice fitness walk for the first section of this trip - walk on a constant elevation in the midst of indigenous plants and trees, reaching an altitude of 260 m above sea level. Walking for further 300 m, you will reach the first and longest rock scrambling pitch. While ascending, you will enjoy spectacular views over Benitiers Island and other prominent mountains. The trip continues to the Trochetia Viewpoint before heading to the memorial cross summit - also known as the "little summit" (470 m above sea level) of Le Morne Brabant Mountain. You will have enough time to admire the breathtaking landscapes of paradise island before we start descending. Once you are back at the meeting point, you may proceed in moving to your accommodation. **Kindly note that the possible start times for this trip are: 5:00, 5:30, and 13:30. Please send a request/message to Kevin and he will add the exact starting time on the reservation system for you to do the booking.
Visite du marché & cours de cuisine mauricienne !
Vivez une immersion totale dans la culture mauricienne ! Commencez votre expérience avec une visite du marché de Mahébourg, probablement le plus authentique de l'île. Votre guide, Benito, un enfant du pays à la gentillesse particulière et sa bonne humeur communicative vous surprendra par toutes ses anecdotes non seulement sur la gastronomie mauricienne mais aussi sur la culture de l'île. Direction ensuite 'la kaze' (maison familiale typique) pour préparer des faratas, un des mets phare très appréciés des locaux et des voyageurs, avec plusieurs caris confectionnés avec les produits de saison trouvés sur le marché. Pour poursuivre l'expérience, vous partagerez le repas tous ensemble, en famille, pour une réelle immersion dans la vie locale mauricienne. Il s'agit d'une authentique expérience auprès d'une famille mauricienne où vous serez reçu dans la simplicité de notre maison. Ne vous attendez donc pas a être reçu dans un palace 5*, mais avec le coeur, ça c'est certain ! Si vous en avez l'occasion, nous vous conseillons de réserver cette activité un Lundi, jour où le marché de Mahébourg est le plus fourni. A bientôt sur l'ile Maurice avec Sud Tropical ;)
Explore the Seven Cascades in Mauritius
Our guided trek into the wild and lush greenery of the Tamarind Falls is an adventurous, top-rated option for enjoying the falls. The name itself says "7 Cascades" but you will actually discover up to 13 falls! Tamarind Falls plunge through a dramatic, intensely green canyon sheltered by mature woods and clothed in moss and ferns. Unlike the common way to explore the 7 Cascades, the trek begins off the beaten track where you will be heading to the bottom of all the connected waterfalls. As from there you will be trekking into the wild forests filled with exotic plants and birds. The trek includes both walking in the woods, near the water, multiple river crossing and few rock scrambling areas which can be tackled by both beginner and expert trekkers. Enough time will be available to relax and enjoy the astonishing views of the waterfalls. Jumping from one plateau to another is prohibited. Participants must have a good level of fitness and not having any fear of heights. **Possible starting times for this trip are: 8:30 and 9:30.
Must love dogs
If you love dogs of all shapes and sizes, this Experience is for you. Visit the Happy Tails Sanctuary, in the south of the island, home to 130 rescue dogs! Most of these lovable furry friends have come from the streets & some previously had an "owner." Unwanted, unloved or abused, they all have a sad story to tell about their past All the dogs at the sanctuary are up for adoption and sponsorship and the animal loving team works 24/7 on making sure their suffering days are over. They have a big dog park to play in and also a lovely house to rest in with their favourite canine friends. You can play, walk and run with the dogs and get smothered in kisses! Your visit contributes towards the wellbeing of the sanctuary dogs and also towards hosting sterilisation campaigns locally in order to reduce the overpopulation of straying dogs on the island. Ps: EXCITING PUP-DATE: We have a litter of 8 puppies born at the sanctuary on the 1st of May 2022!!! Mum & Puppies waiting to meet you!
