What people are saying about Savanne District

Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and explained everything through the trip. We all felt very safe being guided through the markets and loved seeing the sights of Port Louis. There were 7 of us travelling as a family a family and our guide look lots of photos of us all together. At the botanical gardens, our guide knew everything about all the plants and we had a great time learning about the palms and smelling all the spice plants. He was great with our youngest child and made him feel very special. The vehicle was comfortable and the driving great. The communication from Carine when arranging the trips was so informative and reliable that we used this company to book another 2 trips after we arrived. Thank you

An unforgettable experience! Just after a few meters of sailing we saw 2 dolphins and 3 whales! Then we sailed in the open sea and we saw many dolphins and whoever wanted could dive into the water and admire the wonderful creatures, all in absolute safety. The dolphins don't come towards you, so you have to swim fast to keep up with them, I recommend bringing the necessary equipment (mask and tube) because the boat didn't have many to lend, for those who have them I also recommend bringing fins (in negative case on the boat they have some available). For lunch they delighted us with a barbecue on the beach. Highly recommended experience!

Hotel pickup was on time. After a few minutes we saw dolphins. It is exhausting to keep up with the dolphins, so you should be able to swim well. Just seeing the dolphins from the boat was amazing. The coconut island was beautiful and the barbecue was really delicious. Suddenly a whale jumped up on our boat. That made this perfect day even better! We were able to watch the whale for at least half an hour and he even had a baby with him. Breathtaking experience!

Maravillosa experiencia para nadar con delfines. La recogida en el hotel muy puntual y el transfer al hotel fantástico. La barbacoa es de 5 estrellas, en una isla de ensueño. Vistas y experiencias muy recomendables. La pena que como españoles nadie hablaba nuestro idioma, pero con el inglés nos entendíamos.

Very very good experience, the locals we were with were great And the final surprise (with luck of course) the whales ❤️
