About the Archery Activity at Domaine de L’Etoile
Mauritius is the ideal place for combining nature with fun activities. For an exciting time amidst the nature, try shooting arrows in the pristine setting of Domaine de L’Etoile.
Archery goes a long way back, with its roots in hunting and on the ancient battlefields. The Domaine’s nature reserve is perfect for you to practice your archery skills, while enjoying the pleasant climate of the island and spending quality time with your friends or family. You will be warmly welcomed by friendly staff who will ensure that you spend a wonderful time surrounded by tropical nature.
Besides being a fun sport that’s not physically demanding, archery is also a great way to de-stress. With modern equipment, bows and arrows, the Domaine offers you the chance to practice the sport in a safe environment.
The addictive element of archery is that it is simple to learn and is a very satisfying experience. After your initiation with the instructor, you will be ready to aim at a number of targets and animal figures. The gratifying thud of the arrow as it hits the target, or even the bullseye, is an incredible sensation.
