After breakfast at the hotel, embark on an 8-hour private tour of the southwest of Mauritius, which will take you to popular tourist destinations like the lush green dormant volcano Trou Aux Cerfs. Trou aux Cerfs, a dormant volcano in Mauritius, is a popular tourist attraction with a 360-degree view of Curepipe, Rempart Mountain, Trois Mamelles, and the Port-Louis-Moka mountain range. It is located about 1 kilometre from Curepipe and has remained dormant for 700,000 years. The crater is surrounded by lush forest and a wooden kiosk for relaxation and admiration of the natural beauty.
For a fantastic panoramic view of the lake, continue on to Mare Aux Vacoas Reservoir. Plaines Wilhems, Mauritius’ most populous area, has 400,000 residents and is divided into villages and towns. The Mare Aux Vacoas river and reservoir, named after Prussian explorer Wilhem Leicknig, provide drinking water to these towns. The reservoir was created during the French period and developed during British rule. The lake, located on the central plateau of Mauritius, is a popular tourist spot. Host Snigdha Voruganti and team Vihari captured the stunning view of the lake during their trip to Mauritius.
Visit the Hindu Temple and the enormous statue of Lord Shiva in Grand Bassin next. The Mangal Mahadev statue, at 108 feet high, is the highest known statue in Mauritius. It is a faithful copy of the Shiva statue near Sursagar Lake in Gujarat, India. Grand Bassin, also known as Ganga Talao, is a sacred lake for Hindus in Mauritius, located in a secluded mountain area. The lake is believed to connect with the Ganges of India, and the Hindu community annually goes on a pilgrimage to honour Lord Shiva. A temple dedicated to other gods is also located beside the lake.
When you’re ready, go to Alexandra Falls to take in the scenery, the waterfall, and its tangled valley. Alexandra Falls, hidden in the Black River Gorges National Park, is a breathtaking setting that offers a peaceful and pleasant mindset. The waterfalls are surrounded by lush greenery and local bird species, creating a jungle-like atmosphere. Accessible on routes to Plaine Champagne and Grand Bassin, Alexandra Falls is an excellent addition to a day trip in Mauritius.
After that, go to Gorge Viewpoint to see a panoramic view of the local wildlife and flora. The Black River Gorges National Park in Mauritius is an ancient primaeval forest known for its endangered species, like the Mauritius Falcon. The park’s hard ebony was used in warships. Visitors can explore the park on foot, taking over one day on a 60-kilometre road network. The park’s surreal view from the Gorges Viewpoint is a highlight.
You will then partake in a three-course lunch before moving on to Seven Coloured Earth, which is special due to its varied-coloured sand. After that, continue on to Chamarel Falls, the tallest single-drop waterfall. Chamarel Waterfall, Mauritius’ highest waterfall, is 100 metres high and located near the Seven Coloured Earth of Chamarel. It is formed by the St. Denis River and is covered with dense foliage from the Black River Gorges. The waterfall’s beauty depends on the season, with summers featuring two to three distinct trickles and monsoons gushing down as a vast stream.
Continue to Ebony Forest Nature afterward to take a 4×4 jeep ride through the forest to the historic Ebony Forest and stop for breath-taking views. Last but not least, stop at Chamarel and Maconde viewpoints for breathtaking views. Explore Mauritius’ endemic flora and fauna on a Discovery Tour at the Ebony Forest, suitable for all age groups.

As the largest city with 200,000 inhabitants, it is home to the largest harbour in Mauritius, Port Louis Harbour, and is home to large businesses and small trades. The city’s unique atmosphere is shaped by its rich history and its connection to the island’s past and present.
Le Caudan Waterfront, Mauritius’ first major shopping development, remains a modern mall with charm.
Port Louis, Mauritius’ capital, is a bustling town with a variety of shops selling various products. The Central Market, also known as the Bazaar of Port Louis, is the main shopping point, offering fresh fruits and vegetables, locally-made souvenirs, spices, and handicrafts at affordable prices. The market also features street food stalls, such as dhall puri and alouda, as well as local snacks like samoussas, bajas, and gato piment. The market remains busy throughout the week, attracting locals and visitors alike. It’s a great way to learn about local life and experience the Mauritian vibe.
The Craft Market, situated at Caudan Waterfront, offers a unique collection of 36 stalls featuring a wide variety of products, including woodwork, baskets, glass souvenirs, seashells, linen, handmade jewellery, and African rag dolls. Many handicrafts are made by stall owners, their families, or sourced from their villages. Visitors can meet the artists behind the paintings or witness their names being engraved on wooden keychains. The market is conveniently located, with a food court and shops to enjoy peaceful shopping.
Visit Citadel Fort, also known as Fort Adelaide, in Port Louis for a break from shopping and a visit to the city’s historic fortress. Originally built to defend Port Louis, the Citadel Fort, also known as Fort Adelaide, was never used for that purpose. It offers a 360-degree view of the Capital, including Chinatown, Champ de Mars, and mountains. The fortress is a popular spot for weekend breaks and jogging, but it’s best to visit during the week to avoid crowds. This historical architecture is sure to impress, so be sure to include it in your visit to Port Louis.
