Full description
The ride begins at the Place du Moulin in Bel Ombre, where you'll start by heading towards La Baie de Jakotet and then turn towards the village of Rivière des Galets. There, you'll discover the Batelage of Grand River South-East, the former harbor of Souillac. You will visit one of the oldest churches in Mauritius, the church of Saint-Jacques. The group will then make a stop at the charming Telfair Gardens, the colonial judiciary and the former train station. At all the stops, your guide will share some interesting history and stories about what you're seeing and experiencing, and give you time to relax, cool down and take some snapshots!

From the top of the Gris-Gris cliffs at “La Nef”, former house of the poet R. E. Hart, enjoy the spectacular view that the poet so loved before visiting “La Roche Qui Pleure” (The Weeping Rock). On the return journey, taste a delicious local meal thanks to the generous and dynamic Mrs. Mala: an unforgettable moment of generosity and local hospitality. You'll hit the road again, next stop St. Felix, where you'll enjoy a snack and head to the Riambel public beach. Then, continue your journey to the Bel Ombre Sugar Estate which marks the end of the ride.

If your group of 10 or more so chooses, it's possible to add to the tour a visit to the Rochester Falls: immerse yourself in nature and then take a refreshing dip at these wonderful waterfalls. The trail through the sugarcane fields leading to the waterfalls takes an additional 40 minutes and requires additional effort - but this getaway is worth it!
