South Coast Tour Mauritius: As part of this tour you will visit many interesting and exciting sights in one day:

Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park
The park is home to various species of animals, reptiles and plants. The park is set in a beautiful rain forested valley with natural freshwater springs, full of prawns and fish. As part of your visit to the Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park, the park’s guides will guide you through some unforgettable walks, and you will stroll through luxuriant greenery where banana trees, palm trees and giant bamboos provide shade for the crocodiles and the giant tortoises. During your stay in the crocodile park you can also experience a firsthand unique encounter with the giant tortoises and turtles, and get a rare chance to feed, pet and play with them.
Also thousands of Nile crocodiles are found in the park and you can watch them in maximum safety.
The Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park also offers a mini zoo of Mauritian fauna where you can find most of the Mauritian mammals and reptiles including skinks, phelsumas (geckos), giant tortoises, turtles, bats, deer, mongooses, monkeys, wild boars, as well as domestic livestock such as goats, fat-tailed sheep and donkeys.
A must see is the park’s rare collection of butterflies and other brightly-colored insects (with about 23 000 species), which is one of the most fascinating in the world.

Rochester Waterfalls
Rochester Falls are waterfalls on the Savanne River. The Rochester waterfalls are located near the southern coast of Mauritius around 2.5 kilometers from the village of Souillac. This area is full of natural beauties and interesting formations. The organ-pipe shaped basalt columns near the waterfalls and the signs of lava balls revealed from the way are really spectacular. The water of the Savanne River tumble from 10m height. The constant erosion has fashioned the basalt rock into upright columns of unique shapes. They form a natural sculpture, carved within a hard rock, with angles frayed over time. The track leading down to the waterfalls is lined with banana, mango and litchi trees and also sugar cane fields, all provide shade from the sun, and create beautiful and peaceful surrounding. You will get to enjoy the short track leading to the waterfalls and the beautiful surrounding, while admiring the charm of the waterfalls.

Gris – Gris
The village of Gris-Gris is found at the Southern tip of Mauritius. The appeal of Gris Gris lies in it scenery, the high cliffs here drop abruptly to the sea and the bracing winds of the Indian Ocean blow all year round. Gris-Gris is well known for its sea cliff and this is definitely a sight worth seeing. This part of the island is not surrounded by coral reefs and this is why thick waves crash directly on the cliffs. At the southern end of Gris-Gris you will have a great viewpoint on the cliffs and will see the squashing of waves against the flanks of the cliffs.

Bois Chéri
Visit of Bois Chéri, the biggest tea producer in Mauritius. It is also the first tea plantation in Mauritius dates back to 1892. As part of the visit of the Bois Cheri, you will enjoy a guided tour with a local guide leading you through the factory and the tea plantation, offering you to discover the history, stories and tales of Bois Chéri and the importance of tea productions in Mauritius.
After the guided tour of the tea factory, you will visit the tea production museum learning more about the history of tea in Mauritius. The Bois Chéri offers a great panoramic view of the south of the island. Nowadays Bois Chéri produces a new range of flavored teas, green teas and herbal teas. You may taste them during your visit.

Saint Aubin House
The Saint Aubin house was built in 1819. It has been home to several managers of the sugar estate, before being renovated in the 90’s in order to preserve a part of the Mauritian heritage. Today one may still see the beams and ship poles used in its original construction.
You will also discover the vanilla plantation of the estate and the interesting transformation process of the vanilla orchid from the flower to the aromatic pod.

Grand Bassin (also known as Ganga Talao)
Grand Bassin is a lake situated 6km South East of Mare aux Vacoas in a secluded mountain area in the district of Savanne, deep in the heart of Mauritius. It is about 1800 feet (550m) above sea level. Grand Bassin with its Hindu temple is a holy lake for Mauritians of Hindu faith. The lake rests in the crater of an extinct volcano. It is said that the water inside the lake communicates with the waters of the holy Ganges of India. The Hindus of Mauritius declared the Grand Bassin as a Holy lake. The Hindu community performs there a pilgrimage every year on the Maha Sivaratri (Shiva’s Great Night), on this day they honor the Lord Shiva. Beside the lake there is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and other Gods including Hanuman, Lakshmi, and others.
