1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The overall sense of Mauritius we gained through the variety of people, backgrounds, culture, history and wildlife we experienced. The first day encountering the giant tortoises on Ile aux Aigrettes was awesome as was watching the flying foxes soar and glide in the Bambous Virieux valley.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Before booking, say if you are unsure whether a specific activity will suit you. Our trip was to mark our 40th wedding anniversary and one of our activities was adjusted to suit our capabilities. The roads are good so enjoy getting about in your hire car. It affords the opportunity to explore independently and you need it to reach the activity locations. Make sure you know when you need to leave your accommodation in order to reach an activity location on time so you can arrange for an early breakfast.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We were impressed how many of the activity providers were Mauritians who had set up in business 2 or 3 years ago offering an alternative to wholly resort based holidays. We got a sense of the work of the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation right at the start, we were enjoined to use ‘reef friendly sunscreen’, and various of the places we stayed and ate had a light environmental footprint.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Truly excellent. A really good opportunity to meet locals, learn quite a lot about the country, and experience its varied nature, as well as having time to relax and appreciate the warmth and the sea.

Dear Ann and Fred. Many thanks for your kind words; it was a pleasure to meet you and get to share our Mauritius with you. Kudos to both of you for making it a point to book responsible holidays to discover the world. Until next time, hopefully soon! - Romina Tello
