Great Trip! Definitely worthwhile if you are into nature adventures. Along with the buggies, they offer quads and 4x4 tours too. It felt like we were riding through Jurassic Park. Even with a minor mechanical failure and having to swap out for a new ride, our guides were very helpful and hospitable. They were very knowledgeable of the environment as well and could answer all of our questions. The waterfall was majestic and was a great spot to cool off. I highly recommend visiting Bel Ombré and taking the off-road tours. It was one of the highlights of our time in Mauritius.

We loved this activity! Magnificent walk in the reserve, we take full view! Very nice to get around in a buggy, thrills at the meeting. The guide is really very good and took us to the foot of a superb waterfall where we could swim. I recommend!

We liked this excursion, the guide listened and made us discover the nature reserve by quad. I highly recommend this excursion. Thanks again to the whole team!

Great tour with great views and a nice tour guide (Jerome)! Great landscape and can only be recommended! Makes it even more fun when it rains.

It was a lot of fun, even with rain in nature it was an experience.
