ÎLE AUX AIGRETTES . RAULT BISCUIT FACTORY . MAHÉBOURG MUSEUM AND MARKET . LA VANILLE RÉSERVE DES MASCAREIGNES 

From the residence, drive to Pointe Jérome on the South-East coast to board the boat to the 25-hectare nature reserve of Île-Aux-Aigrettes, set in the turquoise waters of the bay. It is the last refuge of the ebony forest, endemic animals and plant species. Managed by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF), the islet harbors indigenous plants and coastal ebony forests, once the dodo’s home. This conservation program ensures the survival of rare species like the Pink Pigeon, the colorful day gecko and the giant Aldabra tortoise in total freedom.

After Île-Aux-Aigrettes, visit the Naval Museum which preserves a collection of relics salvaged from the wrecks, reminiscent of the fierce naval battles that took place in the region which saw the very first naval victory of the French over the British during the Napoleonic period.

Deep in the heart of a small suburb of Mahébourg, discover the unique Rault Biscuit Factory (a.k.a Biscuiterie Rault), a traditional factory of cassava (manioc) biscuits, over 140 years old. See the making of the biscuits which you will pack and take home. Then proceed to Pointe d’Esny to go to Île aux Aigrettes by boat. Lunch will then be served in the beautiful settings of the ‘Jardin de Beau Vallon’.

Finish the day by visiting ‘La Vanille Reserve des Mascareignes’. This park host giant tortoises, reptiles, crocodiles and an impressive collection of butterflies and insect.
