Top Mauritius Excursions

When it comes to exotic holiday destinations, there are certainly plenty to choose from, but one that often springs to most people’s minds is Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. This stunning paradise island nation regularly tops the lists of idyllic holiday destinations thanks to its stunning white, sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and first-class resorts. However, while Mauritius luxury holidays often centre on fine dining and relaxation by the pool or the beach, there is plenty more to do in this fabulous location. Those who want to enjoy some fun and adventure while also seeing a bit more of Mauritius might be interested in some of the island’s top excursions. Below are a few examples of things to do during a holiday to Mauritius.

Walking with Lions

If you love big cats, then this is the perfect excursion for you. Mauritius’s lion park offers tourists the chance to walk alongside lion handlers on the banks of the Riviere du Rempart. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity means you may be able to pet the lions and get up close as they walk beside you.

Quad Biking

Quad biking in the L’Etoile Reserve is a fantastic day out and gives adrenaline-seeking tourists the opportunity to see more of Mauritius. Travel through forests, plantations and lush valleys with some of the most spectacular scenery around. This trip takes you up through the mountains and provides absolutely stunning views of the island. Tourists will also get the chance to see some indigenous species as well as the beautiful flora and fauna.

Underwater Sea Walk

Beneath the surface of the Indian Ocean is a world of wonder, and you could get up close and personal with some of the most stunning marine life on an underwater sea walk. This fantastic experience is one that most people rave about as it gives them a chance to see spectacular corals and fish while walking on the seabed. With a special transparent helmet, it is possible to breathe normally underwater, and there are qualified guides to ensure safety at all times.

Glass Bottom Boat Tour

For those who want to see as much of the Mauritius marine life as possible without actually getting wet, a glass-bottom boat tour is an ideal option. At the Blue Bay Marine Park, glass-bottom boat tours are hugely popular because of the stunning lagoon filled with beautiful underwater creatures.

Helicopter Sightseeing Tour

A helicopter flight trip around Mauritius will allow you to see this stunning destination in all its glory from above. Take in the fabulous mountain ranges, white sandy beaches and stunning lagoons while enjoying an adrenaline-filled ride in a luxury helicopter. A guide will provide information about the geography and history of Mauritius as you take in the spectacular views.
