Mauritius : Sustainable Tourism


#SustainableTourism #IndianOcean #Mauritius

Mauritius positions itself as a green tourism destination and has committed to develop sustainable activities and leisure during the last years. Ecology has taken on an increasingly important place at all levels and, much more than its beaches, Mauritius offers a wide range of things to see and do inland during your stay. Its various landscapes, forests, parks and reserves, fauna and flora, make the richness of this island and are waiting to be discovered by green tourism enthusiasts. Hoteliers and other tourist operators are also actively involved in this sustainable approach, involving both employees and guests. 

To reconnect with nature, there are a multitude of green zones in the island: its forests, parks and nature reserves, where you can discover the fauna and flora of Mauritius. The Black River Gorges National Park in the west coast, will offer a full immersion in nature. Several marked trails are available, some will take you to the centre of the island towards Macchabée and Pétrin; enjoy the many centenary trees and protected endemic birds that you will see there, and just appreciate the nature around. Bras d’Eau forest is another national park in the east. Like the one in Black River, it is part of a conservation program and is easily accessed from the main road. At La Vanille Reserve des Mascareignes park in Rivière des Anguilles, you will come across the Aldabra tortoises, introduced in Mauritius after the extinction of the endemic species of giant tortoises that lived here, and the impressive Mauritian bat, the only endemic mammal of the Mascarenes Islands. On the west coast, Casela Nature Parks will be the perfect place for a family outing. In addition to the walk in the park and other entertainment, you can enjoy activities in the wild such as ziplines and the Via Ferrata, or visit its endemic garden.
