The Curious Corner of Chamarel
Curious Corner as the name states is for those of us who like snooping around and have an ever probing mind, as we all naturally are.
If ever, you have been tired out by the over indulgence of relaxing on the warm white sandy beaches of Mauritius and you want to give your brain some stimulating work out, then the Curious Corner is definitely the place to go to.
Located just opposite the 7 colored earth entrance in the Chamarel village on the west of the island, with an impounding façade, on a winding hilly road, it is a house filled with a variety of astounding delusional fantasies.
Constructed passionately by a team of thrilling professionals, with the main aim to surprise their visitors, curious minds with mythical thoughts. Curious Corner is surely out to surprise you in every sense of the way, with just under 40 exhibits set over the 5,000sq meters.
Be sure to allow at least an hour and a half to experience the whole adventure.
As soon as you walk in, you and your brain, are both physically challenged with the conundrums and artifices, set to get your straight forward thinking a shake.
Curious Corner is a house of fun packed illusions with adventures to be enjoyed with friends and families which are set out for your entertainment or even frustration.
It is a fascinating, fun and social excursion into the wonderful world of optical illusions, which will leave you quite literally, not believing your eyes!
