What to do in Mauritius

Experience La Vanille Crocodile Park

The main attractions at La Vanille Crocodile Park (or La Vanille Reserve Des Mascareignes) are the enormous crocodiles and tortoises. A guided tour will allow you to learn about the creatures you encounter. Despite some of the scarier reptiles, it's a family-friendly attraction; you even get to feed monkeys, bats, and fish.

Visit Maison Eureka

Housed in a colonial house from the 1800s, a short tour of the Maison Eureka will give you an insight into Mauritian life in the early 19th century. Meals are prepared in the colonial kitchens, adding a sense of authenticity to the experience. If the weather's nice, walk to the nearby waterfalls.

Explore Black River Gorges National Park

This beautiful park has forests, heathland, waterfalls, and an abundance of native wildlife. No matter your fitness level, you'll be able to experience the landscape, and it's refreshing to see a side of Mauritius that's away from the beach. Tour companies such as Mauritius Attractions can provide an expert guide and arrange a picnic at the end of your hike.

Central Flacq Market (Street food)

Mauritians take their breakfast habits from the French, so light pastries are everywhere. That said, a mid-morning snack is always welcome. Head for the Central Flacq Market, where stalls sell dholl puri; these light pancakes are a Mauritian staple, having been introduced by north Indian immigrants.
