What people are saying about Rivière du Rempart District

Wonderful day out with Christopher. He was so knowledgeable about the environment we learnt so much. Exploring this part of Mauritius was very different to the rest of the island and well worth a visit. I would highly recommend. It was difficult to find because it is on a private road. But we got our taxin driver to call the booking company and they helped with directions.

We enjoyed our trip. Christopher was really nice and he explained us how to paddle since it was our first time. We were very lucky to share the experience with a very nice couple who made our trip even nicer. Christopher surprised us with pineapple and tart which were very tasty. Thank you for the very lovely time we’ve had with the kayak.

The perfect Kayaking adventure in the mangroves and on Amber Island. Our guide Christopher was awesome- very knowledgeable, fun, at one with nature AND provided delicious snacks along the way. Highly recommend! The geckos and seeing the old settlement were a highlight as well as swimming with the fish in the mangroves.

had a perfect day with the Wind Dancer Catamaran crew. from start till end, they made sure we have all we need and fell perfect. the cruise was super smooth. food and drinks were delicious. recommend this tour to everyone visiting Mauritius.

The kayaking was an excellent day out. Christopher is an top guide. Very informative and chilled.
