Oh My God, this day in Mauritius was AMAZING. It started with a visit to it’s famous crater. This huge natural volcanic crater called Trou aux Cerfs is 85m deep and 200m wide, was formed millions of years ago. According to experts, the volcano is lying dormant but could become active at any time within the next thousand years.
We then drove through the Black River Gorges Nature Park, for a viewpoint of the Black River Gorges nature park and of Alexandra waterfalls.
We then went on to visit of Chamarel Waterfall and Chamarel seven coloured earth. The village of Chamarel in south west Mauritius is home to two natural wonders – the magnificent Chamarel waterfall which is taller than the Statue Of Liberty and the seven coloured earth of Chamarel. The seven coloured earth is one of the wonders of Mauritius and is considered one of the must places to see.
We then had went onto The Mauritius Casela Park which is a real nature and adventure park. It is located besides the Rempart Mountain on the South-West of Mauritius. The park includes four thematic worlds: Safari, Nature, Mountain and Water.
- Safari Kingdom: Quad, Photo-Safari, dedicated area for Big Cats, Elephants and suitable for safaris and interactions with Giraffes.
- Nature Kingdom: Bird Park, Canopy Park, Animal show.
- Mountain Kingdom: Canyoning, Via Ferrata, Zip Lines, Climbing Wall
- Water Kingdom: Wave pool, Toboggans (children and adults), a lagoon as well as an artificial river.
- Discovery Centre: 4D Cinema, discovery of natural science and History of Mauritius through giant 3D Maps.
But our only goal at this time was to interact the Lions and Cheetahs. But as the temperature was hitting 38 degrees, we only got to see the lions, but that was more than enough for me. I love cats, both big and small. And this was a #bucketlist item for me.
