About the Ultimate Private Helicopter Sightseeing Tour (75 Minutes)
This private helicopter sightseeing tour is the perfect way of viewing all of the key wonders and sites of Mauritius if you're’ short on time, or simply want to contemplate on the paradise island from high up. Start this great adventure and get a bird's eye view of Mauritius from a comfortable, executive helicopter.
As you soar above, you will first fly past the majestic Pieter Both mountain, a uniquely-shaped mountain that has a boulder sitting proudly on its peak, followed by the thumb-shaped mountain known as Le Pouce. These mountains are among the highest peaks in Mauritius, standing at over 800 metres high.
The helicopter will then head to the South of Mauritius, where the magnificent waterfalls of Tamarin, in the middle of greenery, will gradually come into view. High up in the sky, the breathtaking scenery unfolding in front of your eyes will surely make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
As you move further south, you will be approach the Black River Gorges, a nature lover’s delight; rich with endemic fauna and flora. As you overfly the gorges, you will have the splendid opportunity to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous paille-en-queue birds (white-tailed tropic birds).
After a detour over Benitiers Island (Ile aux Bénitiers), a small coral island off the south-west coast, you will be enthralled with the Underwater Waterfall near Le Morne Brabant. The view of the Underwater Waterfall is absolutely spectacular when seen from a helicopter and by many, it is considered a true wonder not to be missed. Le Morne Brabant, on the other hand, is an official UNESCO heritage site with a summit of 556 metres above sea level, and is an iconic cultural symbol.
After the illusionary Underwater Waterfall, the helicopter will head North, crossing other stunning natural wonders on its path. Before you even have time to ponder over the fact that you have flown over the rainbow-coloured earths of Chamarel, you will be in for another surprise!
Have you ever seen an islet right in the middle of a lake? Ganga Talao will provide you with this unique sight. The dormant crater turned spiritual lake, will give you an insight of the local culture and geographic formation of the island. As you fly over the famous Mauritian tea fields, you will also come across another dormant volcanic crater, the Kanaka Crater.
On the east of the island, revel in aerial views of the Ile aux Cerfs island, which stands out with its unusually white sandy beaches and magnificent golf-course. Next is the Ile d’Ambre island, located just off the north coast of Mauritius.
Pursuing the flight towards the north, the Flat Island (Ile Plate) proudly welcomes you with its unique lighthouse. Flat Island is the largest of the northern islets and is completely flat, except for its one hill, topped by a beautiful lighthouse. The Coin de Mire island (Gunner’s Coin) near Cap Malheureux will be the last site enroute as you return to the base in Triolet.
