Mauritius Sightseeing

Casela Bird Park
This park, set in the district of Black River, stretches over 20 acres of land and contains more than 140 varieties amounting to 2,500 birds. Specimens from the five continents may be seen there, but the main attraction is the Mauritian Pink Pigeon which is one of the rarest birds in the world. Other attractions are tigers, fish ponds, tortoises, monkeys, orchids (seasonal), and the overall green scenery and peaceful atmosphere created by trees, streams and small cascades.

Mahebourg
Mahebourg is one of the main fishing centres. It lies in the bay of Grand Port and has a Naval Museum, housed in the French colonial mansion where in 1810 the English and French naval commanders, both wounded in battle, were brought to be given medical care.

Eureka, Creole Museum

Eureka is a unique creole house built in 1830 in a magnificient garden surrounded by the waterfalls of Moka River and the Moka Range. A visit to Eureka is a must to understand fully the charms of the tropics.

Chamarel (coloured earth)
A twisting metalled road leads from Chamarel Case Noyale village to the coloured earths at Chamarel. This is a mound of undulating land stretching in contrasting layers of colour, and the patches of blue, green, red and yellow earth are believed to be the result of weathering. The nearby Chamarel waterfall emerges from the moors and primeval vegetation and is startingly beautiful.
