What you can expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Riambel Public Beach, Mauritius

Begin your 9 hours tropical South-West tour with a complimentary hotel pick-up at your accommodation anywhere on the paradise Island. You will meet and be greeted by our certified guide and after boarding to your comfortable vehicle, then set off for your first stop.  

First of all, you'll be heading at Grand Bassin sacred lake which is the most important place of worship for Mauritian Hindus. Ganga Talao is a major draw of crowds in Mauritius, with many people visiting the site to pray, meditate or simply to walk by the lake and enjoy the gorgeous surrounding views.

Afterwards, travel to Alexandra fall Viewpoint, where you will admire the cloud forest of Mt Cocotte, (771m) and the waterfall along with the view down to the south coast. You'll spend a tranquil moment in the surrounding virgin green valley, which is home to some endemic avian species and flora. 

During the day, you'll head to Gorge Viewpoint, where you will stop for a stunning panorama. On a clear day, the views from here across the gorge and down towards the west coast rank among the best on the island.

Next, you'll be heading to Visit the seven-colored earth & Chamarel waterfall, which is one of the most famous and most visited attractions in Mauritius. The seven-colored earth is a natural phenomenon and a prominent tourist attraction. The colours evolved through conversion of basaltic lava to clay minerals.

Afterwards, continue to Rhumerie de Chamarel which was designed to provide a holistic tourism experience to guests. As a visitor of the Rum Distillery, you can marvel at its unique design which blends harmoniously with the spectacular surroundings where wood, natural stone, and water provide a sense of communion with nature.

At around 12.15 - 12.30, you will be heading to a local restaurant to savour a 3-course traditionally Mauritian lunch. Our guide will give you the Freshverde holidays' menu card where you will be able to choose your preferable menu.

After some time, we will be heading to Curious Corner of Chamarel, which is a house of fun-packed illusions with adventures to be enjoyed with friends and families which are set out for your entertainment or even frustration.

It is a fascinating, fun and social excursion into the wonderful world of optical illusions, which will leave you quite literally, not believing your eyes!

Next, you'll head to Maconde viewpoint to admire the panoramic view of the remarkable ocean. You will feel like “you are in the middle of the ocean.“  Our next stop is Islet Sancho and Riviere Des Galets which will give you a memorable experience as you will witness the huge waves crashing upon the “Flat stone rocks” which is unique in Mauritius.  

On our way, you'll be heading to Rochester fall to explore the magnificent view of the waterfall which makes it a relaxing experience. A must-visit tourist attractions in Mauritius; the Rochester Falls has been in the spotlight for being featured in many Bollywood films. One of its main features is the unique and dramatic cliff face which has been transformed into jagged rectangular blocks by the force of powerful water over the past hundreds of years.

Afterwards, continue to Souillac to see the astounding view of Gris-Gris, where a light wind sweeps your hair and this immaculate view stuns you – you are facing the sea – so blue – which looks like a beautiful fresco. After two minutes walking, you will explore Roche-qui pleure, where you will have the opportunity to witness the angry waves which come crashing on the cliffs. These two places (Gris-Gris & Roche-Qui-Pleure) will give you a truly amazing opportunity to take great pictures

Your Tropical south-west tour ends with return transport to your hotel. 

Duration: 9 hours

Stop At: Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, Chamarel, Mauritius

Undoubtedly the tallest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius at about 100m high, the Chamarel Waterfall is a striking piece of nature standing amid dense vegetation. Fed by the waters of three distinct streams pouring into Saint Denis River, it has a powerful rush with a peak flow rate in excess of 40,000 m³ per minute.

Proceeding along the Seven Coloured Earth Geopark’s 3km access road, which makes for a scenic drive to the geosite, don’t miss the waterfall’s viewpoint on your left. Offering a front-row view of this wonder of nature, it can be accessed via a trail snaking through dense foliage. The seven Coloured Earth is a relatively small area of sand dunes comprising sand of seven distinct colours (approximately red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow).

Overhanging the ledge of a basalt cliff, the Chamarel Waterfall splashes into an oval pool before flowing down a 6km tropical-forest-fringed canyon to Baie du Cap. The sight not only floods the senses with freshness but it is also a spectacular showcase of millions of years of volcanic activity. The dramatic landscape if formed by lavas of two different ages. The layer of brecciated basalt near the base dates from between 10 to 8 million years ago, on top of which lies a second layer from the intermediate period between 3.5 and 1.7 million years ago.

No wonder why the Chamarel Waterfall is ranked among the most sought-after sightseeing spots in Mauritius!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Curious Corner of Chamarel, Baie Du Cap Road, Chamarel, Mauritius

Curious Corner as the name states is for those of us who like snooping around and have an ever probing mind, as we all naturally are.

If ever, you have been tired out by the over indulgence of relaxing on the warm white sandy beaches of Mauritius and you want to give your brain some stimulating work out, then the Curious Corner is definitely the place to go to.

Located just opposite the 7 coloured earth entrance in the Chamarel village on the west of the island, with an impounding façade, on a winding hilly road, it is a house filled with a variety of astounding delusional fantasies.

Constructed passionately by a team of thrilling professionals, with the main aim to surprise their visitors, curious minds with mythical thoughts. Curious Corner is surely out to surprise you in every sense of the way, with just under 40 exhibits set over the 5,000sq metres.
