Mauritius - A Stunning Destination

Beaches, people, food, rum and luxurious hotels are what comes to mind when Amber Pope of Flight Centre sums up her Mauritian experience. The small island located off the coast of South Africa and next to Madagascar has something for young, old and in between.

Mauritius is the most stunning, picturesque destination I have ever been to. The beaches are pristine and the sand is squeaky. The local people are warm and welcoming. They are also great company and considerably generous.

The food is extremely delicious thanks to the exquisite, fresh local produce. If you have time and you enjoy cooking visit the Port Louis Markets where you can select your own produce and take it home to create something delicious.

The highlight for me was walking with six month old lion and tiger cubs through the bush with an experienced animal trainer and guide from South Africa. Being able to pat these playful cuddly creatures that would one day turn into giant cats was an experience not to forget.

As for the rum… Mauritians love their rum! This is due to their large sugar cane industry. I can tell you now, it is not for the faint hearted! They have every flavor under the sun and not a cocktail passes you by without a generous dash of the magical stuff. Hold onto your hats, this stuff is potent enough to fuel the aircraft home.

Overall Mauritius has something for everyone if you want shopping, romance, relaxation, kids club, the zoo, the beach or just to be waited on hand and foot then Mauritius is for you!
