Indian Ocean Islands
Mark Twain once said that Heaven was made after Mauritius, and copied from it. He could have been right. A tropical paradise of warm turquoise water, white sand and palm trees. World-class resorts offer a wealth of water-based activities, making it an ideal family holiday destination and the private beach villas and retreats offer honeymooners the seclusion and romantic island experience many only dream of. The east coast is rugged and rocky while the west is calm and sheltered. In the north of the island the large bay of Grand Baie is very popular with tourist and the south is the least populated, allowing for a feeling of complete seclusion, privacy and wild, expansive beaches. Tropical rainforests adorn much of the island and the standard of accommodation is exceptional throughout. Combine an exhilarating safari in one of Africa’s greatest wildlife destinations and a beach retreat on Mauritius for a holiday that will be etched in your memories forever.

With a tropical climate there is no bad time of year to visit Mauritius, however it’s best to avoid the wet cyclone season (December to March), and July to August can be very windy on the East Coast. November to April can be very hot and humid. May to October are the best month to visit, with long sun-drenched days at a slightly cooler temperature and hardly any risk of rain at all.
While many only leave their resort to move to the nearest beach, there are some idyllic hikes to be enjoyed on the forested islands with amazing waterfalls and ocean vistas. The rich marine life and iridescent water is a SCUBA diver’s dream. Most resorts offer kids clubs with safe & supervised water sports provided.
Getting to Mauritius is not difficult, with regular flights from around the globe and then a short drive to the coastal retreat of your choice. The perfect destination to follow a wildlife safari in Kruger National Park or the Okavango Delta, the Africa&You experts will advise on the best routes to get there to ensure a seamless and hassle free holiday of a lifetime.
