Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

2. Mauritius: Wild South West Full-Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic tour of the wilder landscape of southwest Mauritius and taste the local rum before savoring a delicious lunch at a restaurant. See the volcanic crater of Trou Aux Cerfs, Chamarel Waterfall, 7-Colored Earth, La Rhumerie de Chamarel, and more with a guide.  Visit the ship model factory in Curepipe where their craftsmen are adept in the art of miniaturization and the techniques of replica work. You will then head to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, the most important place of worship for Mauritian Hindus and make a short drive to the Black River Gorges and stop at the Black River View Point, to see the island’s endemic flora and fauna. Visit La Rhumerie de Chamarel to learn about the various stages involved in making the local rum, before tasting the end product! A delicious gourmet lunch will then be served in a local restaurant. After lunch, the drive continues to Chamarel Village to admire the 90-meter high Chamarel Waterfall and the curious 7-Coloured Earth, a natural phenomenon caused when basaltic lava converts the clay mineral into vibrant shades of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow. Take a winding drive to the southwest corner of Mauritius, and enjoy the drive through Macondé Bridge for panoramic views across the Baie Du Cap River.

3. Chamarel: 7-Colored Earth Geopark Entrance Ticket with Lunch

Combine two Chamarel classics in this single experience. See the 7-Colored Earth Geopark and admire Mauritius's tallest waterfall, then sample delicious creole cuisine at Le Chamarel Restaurant. On that road trip, stop by Le Chamarel Restaurant to taste the 12 flavours of authentic cuisine that will take you on a culinary voyage, reflecting the origins of the multiple ethnicities present in Mauritius. At the same time, visit the iconic Chamarel 7 Coloured Earth Geopark, where you will stop by the Chamarel Waterfalls - the highest in Mauritius. You can opt to do either activity in the order of your choice but keep in mind that lunch is served at Le Chamarel Restaurant as from 11.30 am to 2.30pm. This activity can be done all year round and any day of the week depending on availability. This activity needs to be done by a mode of transportation as there is approximately 5-10mins from the 7 Coloured Earth to the Le Chamarel Restaurant.
