Mauritius is a large volcanic island located 2000 km off the southeastern coast of Africa. It is a very popular Indian Ocean Island to visit, offering a host of easy alternatives for the holiday visitor.
Unlike the other Indian Ocean Islands we specialize in, Mauritius is considered a more mass market destination. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it is one of our favourite destinations for families (especially with young children) as well as clients looking for a more affordable Indian Ocean experience.
The country's warm waters and powdery beaches are truly beautiful, and Mauritius has a rich biodiversity too. The geography is made up of volcanic mountains and rolling fields, supporting the important economies of textiles, sugar and tourism.
Mauritius holds a lot of appeal, and attractions include swimming in warm water, snorkeling and diving, fishing, golf, tours of local markets and innumerable other watersports. The inland areas of the island also offer hiking and exploration of forests and waterfalls. The cuisine and the Creole culture makes a holiday in Mauritius a colorful experience.
Mauritius is a haven in the middle of the Indian Ocean, one of the jewels of the African islands and located only four hours flight from Johannesburg. The regions are separated into north, south, east and west - all offering a slightly different holiday appeal.
