Full Description

About the Picnic at Frederica Waterfalls - Bel Ombre Nature Reserve

Picnics are probably the favourite activity of everyone. A reunion with nature and reconnecting with one another and enjoying some good food is what the ideal picnic is all about. What makes this package an even better picnic is that you will not have to worry about anything since everything will be catered for.

Although your package starts at 12pm you are advised to arrive at least 15 minutes prior. You will be taken to the picnic spot in a Land Rover, cruising through the dense and beautiful nature. Enjoy the ride and views where you might get lucky and can even spot some deer and monkeys on your way.

You will hear the telltale sound of water flowing down the river when you approach the picnic spot. Before you even see the Frederica Waterfalls, you will hear it. A charming little area surrounded by trees, a waterfall somewhere in the background and you will immediately fall in love with the place.

Get settled cosily and enjoy a nice Mauritian lunch in one of the most magical picnic spots of the Island. Start your lunch with a special salad combining the crispness and freshness of the cruciferous veggies to the flavourful and rich taste of the smoked marlin. For the main course you get to choose between a fish, chicken or vegetable curry served with rice, lentils and a couple of Mauritian accompaniments. End the picnic lunch on a sweet note with a refreshing sago dessert. As part of the lunch you are also provided with soft drinks, water, beer and Chamarel’s specialty coffee.

Once the lunch is over, you can use the remaining time to chill or explore the surroundings. You can lounge by the river, listening to the melodious sound of the river, sway gently on a hammock while letting the fresh breeze kiss your skin or try your hand at some traditional games like Molky and tic tac toe!
