Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

1. Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic tour of the wilder landscape of southwest Mauritius and taste the local rum before savoring a delicious lunch at a restaurant. See the volcanic crater of Trou Aux Cerfs, Chamarel Waterfall, 7-Colored Earth, La Rhumerie de Chamarel, and more with a guide.  Visit the ship model factory in Curepipe where their craftsmen are adept in the art of miniaturization and the techniques of replica work. You will then head to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, the most important place of worship for Mauritian Hindus and make a short drive to the Black River Gorges and stop at the Black River View Point, to see the island’s endemic flora and fauna. Visit La Rhumerie de Chamarel to learn about the various stages involved in making the local rum, before tasting the end product! A delicious gourmet lunch will then be served in a local restaurant. After lunch, the drive continues to Chamarel Village to admire the 90-meter high Chamarel Waterfall and the curious 7-Coloured Earth, a natural phenomenon caused when basaltic lava converts the clay mineral into vibrant shades of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow. Take a winding drive to the southwest corner of Mauritius, and enjoy the drive through Macondé Bridge for panoramic views across the Baie Du Cap River.

What people are saying about Curepipe

The tour starts on time and our guide Melissa was very informative, nice and friendly. The tour itself includes many nice places to see and very well organized. The lunch and Rum tasting was excellent. We really enjoy the outstanding nature. Don't forget to take some fruits if you want to present them in the Temple. Highly recommended !!

The South-West tour of Mauritius was great. We discovered a lot of interesting places and learned a lot about the way people live on the island. Our driver was knowledgeable and explained to us a lot of interesting things. I recommend this tour to discover some of the most interesting things in Mauritius.
