About the Full Day Quad Bike Trip in the South of Mauritius
You will ride along the Savanne River, and discover key sites like the Gris Gris cliffs, La Roche qui Pleure and Terracine, that provide magnificent panoramic nature views. You will also have the chance of stopping at the Rochester Falls, located in an isolated wild forested area. The breathtaking scenery, cascading waterfalls, pools of clear water, and luxuriant greeneries surrounding the region, make it a wonderful site for you to explore before heading for lunch.
A 3-course Mauritian lunch will be served at the L’Exil Lodges- a cosy and rustic-styled sanctuary, designed to offer you the best of what nature has to offer. Located in the heart of an indigenous forest, you will get a taste of the local cuisine whilst also admiring the scenic views.
After lunch you can opt between visiting Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park and Nature Reserve or the Saint Aubin house.
Encounter various species of animals, reptiles and plants set in a beautiful rain forested valley. The Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Park and Nature Reserve is a reserve that shelters hundreds of Nile crocodiles and giant Aldabra tortoises along with monkeys, deer and other animals. The park also boasts of a rare collection of butterflies and other brightly coloured insects (about 23 000 species), which is one of the most fascinating collections in the world.
Or explore the an important site of Mauritian Heritage, the Saint Aubin house. Built in 1819, the estate grows sugarcane, which is then processed to make sugar as well as rum. You may witness the manufacturing process during your visit to the distillery, as well as sample on some local rum. You will also discover the interesting transformation process of the vanilla orchid: from the flower to the aromatic pod.
Your trip will end back at the meeting point, passing through the Senneville Bridge.
