Full Description

Get ready to explore the most amazing sites in the north of the island. From the city of Port-Louis, where battles were fought in the past and where the first developments were done under French and British occupation to the SSR Botanical Garden where endemic plants can be spotted, this tour offers a full trip along memory lane brushed with some scenic nature views.

Visit the SSR Botanical Garden: The botanical garden is home to an incredible variety of tropical plants, many of them indigenous. The Botanical Garden is one of the most visited sights in Mauritius. It was first opened as a private garden by the French governor of Mauritius nearly 300 years ago. The botanical garden stretches over endless acres of land and it can take you more than a week to cover the whole garden. The Botanical Garden is populated with more than 650 varieties of plants among which are the famous Baobabs, the palmier bouteille, the ineluctable giant water lilies, dozens of medicinal plants, 85 different varieties of palms, a big spice garden and many more.

L’Aventure Du Sucre Sugar estate & Museum: The Sugar estate and Museum located at the North West of Mauritius stretches over 5000 square meters. In the estate you will discover the key part of sugar in the history of Mauritius. You will also learn about local tales and stories on the sugar industry in Mauritius and its importance. As part of the sugar estate tour you can see a selection of videos and films on many sugar related subjects. Also, you will have the opportunity to shop at the on-site boutique.

Be sure not to miss this great opportunity to enjoy the discovery and purchase unique-local made special sugars, and also the very famous locally made Mauritian rum!

Visit and Tour of Port Louis. Enjoy a visit to Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius. Port Louis is Mauritius' largest city and the economic and administrative center of the island. Right off the main square you can stroll beside the palm-lined Place d'Armes. You can see some wonderful French colonial buildings, especially the Government House and the Municipal Theater. You will have free time to visit Port Louis Waterfront and the Le Caudan Waterfront shopping complex. The bustling Port Louis Waterfront offers exciting shopping and entertainment venues intermingled with world-class hotels and restaurants overlooking the Port Louis Harbor. The waterfront area has become an essential site of the tourism and cultural life in Mauritius.

The craft market in particular is a hive of activity with wonderful ambiance where you are sure to find a lot of souvenirs for the family back home.

Another place to visit is the Port Louis central market – the market is a fun place to visit and the ideal place to find many locally made products, textiles, Mauritian spices, fruits and many souvenirs for very cheap prices. In your free time you can stroll the city streets and see several sightseeing attractions such as: The Anglican and Catholic cathedrals, the main city Mosque, Chinatown, the Supreme Court house, the 18th century Barracks and the Natural History Museum (free entry).

Fort Adelaide (also known as La Citadelle) was built in a very strategic location on higher lands of Port Louis at 240 feet above sea level. The construction of Fort Adelaide started in 1832 and completed after almost ten years. Fort Adelaide offers a vast panoramic views of Port-Louis and its harbour. The British built this fortress in fear of a civil war from the remaining French settlers on the island and also for the purpose of guarding the harbor against enemy attacks. A ride uphill to Fort Adelaide, guarantees breathtaking views of Port Louis and of the mountain range surrounding Port Louis.
