Mauritius South West Tour (Classic Private Tour)

This tour will have you enjoy a private trip with your family and friends, discovering the main touristic sites of the southwest of Mauritius. You will comfortably be driven around the most beautiful places of the regions and will visit the key sites of interest.

Chamarel Village – Visit of Chamarel Waterfall and Chamarel seven (7) colored earth. The village of Chamarel in southwest Mauritius is home to two natural wonders - the magnificent Chamarel waterfall and the seven colored earth of Chamarel. The seven colored earth is one of the wonders of Mauritius and is considered one of the must places to see.

The Seven Colored earth - One of the most iconic places of interest Mauritius is renowned for - you cannot leave the island without visiting Chamarel 7 Coloured Earth. Set in the middle of lush green vegetation, this unique geological curious happening is one of those amazing creations of nature that will mesmerise you. With distinct colours of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow, the Geopark has 15 metres of highly coloured dunes - an almost surreal, lunar-like spectacle of rainbow-hued sand dunes before your eyes. The reserve is also home to giant tortoises, a few who are long term residents and are practically the friendliest giant tortoises you will ever meet. Your entrance tickets also allow you to get access to the coffee shop and the souvenir shop.

Chamarel Waterfall - As part of the visit of Chamarel village, you will also have a great viewpoint of the gorgeous Chamarel waterfall. By many it is considered the most beautiful waterfall of Mauritius. Three distinct streams plunge down from almost 100 meters from the St. Denis River, down into the gorge. The sight of this impressive waterfall against the scenic forest and mountains is truly breathtaking.

Black River Gorges Nature Park and Alexandra Waterfalls - As part of this tour you will also drive through the Black River Gorges Nature Park, where you will see many endangered species of plants and animals. Along the way you will stop for a viewpoint of the Black River Gorges nature park and of Alexandra waterfalls.

Grand Bassin (also known as Ganga Talao). Grand Bassin is a lake situated 6km South East of Mare aux Vacoas in a secluded mountain area in the district of Savanne, deep in the heart of Mauritius. It is about 1800 feet (550m) above sea level. Grand Bassin with its Hindu temple is a holy lake for Mauritians of Hindu faith. The lake rests in the crater of an extinct volcano. It is said that the water inside the lake communicates with the waters of the holy Ganges of India. The Hindus of Mauritius declared the Grand Bassin as a Holy lake. The Hindu community performs a pilgrimage every year on the Maha Sivaratri (Shiva’s Great Night), on this day they honor the Lord Shiva. Beside the lake there is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and other Gods including Hanuman, Lakshmi, and others.

Mangal Mahadev – Shiva Statue. Beside the Grand Bassin you will also get to see the statue of Lord Shiva. The statue is of 108 feet (33 meters) and is the highest known statue in Mauritius (and one of the 50 highest statues in the world). The sight of the Mangal Mahadev statue is quite impressive as it is a beautifully crafted, very big statue.

Mare aux Vacoas - From Trou aux Cerfs you will continue to the town of Curepipe, and then to the Mare aux Vacoas, the largest freshwater lake and reservoir of Mauritius. Mare aux Vacoas is found to the south of Curepipe and is considered one of the island's main water sources. Mare aux Vacoas, dotted with casuarina and coniferous trees, offers a unique surrounding of an alpine wilderness.

Trou aux Cerfs – Mauritius famous crater. From Floreal heading to Curepipe, you will stop on the way to visit the Trou aux Cerfs. This huge natural volcanic crater, 85m deep and 200m wide, was formed millions of years ago. Here you will have a beautiful panoramic view of the crater and the town of Curepipe, and when the sky is clear it is possible to see all the way to Reunion Island.

Baie Du Cap Maconde ViewPoint - Located on the south coast of Mauritius, Baie Du Cap is a small, quaint village. The region is well known for its natural beauty and its wild, rugged coastlines. The Maconde ViewPoint is located between Le Morne and Baie du Cap. It is set on a curved portion of the coastal road, on the peak of a small rocky cliff where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.

Le Morne Peninsula - While heading to the Southern Coast of Mauritius, you will find yourself in a secluded area, close to the pristine nature where the landscape is totally different from the rest of the island. There you will soon spot Le Morne Brabant which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. With a summit of 556 meters, it used to be an escape haven for the runaway slaves dating back to the 19th century.

Ashish was terrific, and really went out of his way to make the day special. The support from Madavee and others in the office was also wonderful, and much appreciated as we were booking from outside the country. (Also, please note that something doesn't seem to work with this online feedback form, as my star ratings were not accepted. But just so you know, I gave five stars for *everything* ???? ) Thank you!!!!
