What to Do in the Hotel's RegionGolf - South
The Domaine de Bel Ombre in the South of Mauritius has what it takes to offer families, couples or friends holidays that are tailored to their wishes. A varied choice of accommodation with two top-notch resorts and private luxury villas, 11 restaurants each with its own charm and specialities, a championship golf course, world-class spa facilities, one of the most beautiful nature reserves on the island, a beach with a “hip & chic” atmosphere, a kilometre-long sandy beach as well as a whole range of land and sea activities... All of this in one place!
Horse Riding South
Horseback riding is definitely not new to Mauritians, nor Mauritius. The least one can say is that it is a sport deeply rooted in the traditions of the country. The fact that we find here the oldest racecourse in the southern hemisphere is proof enough of that. The passion of horse racing is shared by (almost) all Mauritians. And that, irrespective of their ethnicity or social class...
But horseback riding is not practiced only on the Champ de Mars racecourse. There are quite a few equestrian centers on the island. You can most definitely stroll down the wide (and white) sandy beaches of the island on horseback. With the lapping waves in the background, you can enjoy the sun and scenery as a bonus. During the day, the sportiest and most experienced can also take a dip in the sea with their horses! This is a unique experience that can only leave you with good memories. In the evening, enjoy the sunset as you stroll quietly, alone, with your partner or your family.
The beach is not your favorite playground ? Well, you can also enjoy horse riding in lush vegetation on beautiful domains at the heart of the island. Some even extend over 2,000 hectares. You can also find equestrian centers in various localities of the island.
In the south you can visit the Riambel equestrian center near Pomponette. In addition to rides on one of the most pristine beaches of the island, more than 2.5 kilometers long, you will also enjoy the quietness of the place due to the total lack of hotels there. This beach will be yours and only yours. Horses and ponies, beginners and more experienced riders, there is something for everyone’s taste.Hunting in Mauritius
HUNTING IN MAURITIUS
You might not know it but Mauritius is a popular destination for hunting. While your family enjoys the sun, lounging on the beach and swimming in the turquoise lagoons of the island, you can totally enjoy the famous forests of the island.
As man introduced animal prey on the island during their successive settlements, there are were predators to control their population. This led to them populating the vast forests of the island…forests where man has not left its mark yet. You will have the opportunity to hunt on thousands of acres in the wild.
The most famous forests are on the west coast and go deep into the center of the island. This is also an opportunity for you to enjoy the wonderful views that Mauritius has to offer - there are very few people lucky enough to experience this from this perspective.
The "Big Six" of Mauritius
During your stay in Mauritius, you will be able to hunt six particular species: Java Stag, Local wild boars, Guinea Fowl, Pheasants, Hares and Japanese Partridges.
All year round, you can practice "approach hunting" during which you hunt wild boars or young deer with a rifle or a bow.
From March to October you can indulge in hunting small prey with the help of a retriever dog.
From the beginning of June until the end of September, beating hunting is held.
During the slab-hunting period, from mid-July to late August, you can hunt trophies.
Rusa Deer and small prey can be hunted from June to late November.
If you have a hunting license, do not hesitate to slip it into your luggage. Take note however that if you want to keep your trophy, this is entirely possible but you will have to pay a fee depending on the size and species, including the size of the antlers for deer.
Experience the religious and cultural aspects of Mauritius by visiting the very renowned “ Ganga Talao” commonly known as Grand Bassin in the Southern part of Mauritius. Grand Bassin is a crater lake which is about 600m feet above sea level with a depth of between 50 and 55 feet. This place is considered as the most sacred place for the Hindus in Mauritius, as it serves as a pilgrimage site in the name of Lord Shiva (a Hindu deity). Its sanctity is described as having a close connection to the sacred Ganga River in India.
The lake is surrounded by a vibrant lush vegetations and forests encompassed by the incredible temples dedicated for various Hindu pantheon such as Durga, Parvati, Buddha, Ganesh, Saraswati, Vishnu, and so on.
You will likely spot the huge Shiv statue which is of 33 meters, making it the highest statue in Mauritius.
It is recommended to visit the Crater Lake in the month of February or March during the Maha Shivaratree Festival where you will have the chance to experience the religious ambiance, along with vegetarian food, devotional music and songs.
Chamarel-the Seven Coloured Earth
One of the most fascinating spot to discover while visiting Mauritius is the Seven Coloured Earth located in Chamarel. This area has strikingly bare landscape showing well-developed rills and various shades of red, brown, grey, and purple. Engulfed by a large dense forest, the colours of the earth dunes are due to weathering of the basalt and the formation of secondary iron oxides and hydroxides in it, and the rilling is a result of deforestation and sheet erosion. This is due to the human modiﬁcation of the landscape. Such features also occur in Papua New Guinea, and may be common in tropical, high-rainfall regions with volcanic bedrock. And one fun fact is that if you mix the colored earth together, they'll eventually settle into separate layers.
The dunes are protected by a wooden fence and visitors are not allowed to climb on them, although they can look at the scenery from observation outposts placed along the fence. Curio shops in the area sell small test-tubes filled up with the coloured earths. On the premises, you will also find a children's playground and some giant tortoises.
Vallée Des Couleurs
La Vallée des Couleurs reserve invites nature lovers to taste the world of the glorious flora and fauna of the Southern part of Mauritius. Amidst a lush green vegetation with green houses, deer park, verdant valleys, endemic trees, wonderful ponds and rivers, not to mention the Seven Coloured Earth-the Vallée des Couleurs is a blissful exploration to rejuvenate your spirit.
A visit of the Vallée des Couleurs brings pleasure to all your senses.
The songs of birds and the sound of water falling are music to the ears and the captivating and breathtaking panoramic views of the South Coast is a pure delight for the eyes.
The reserve is also a great place to enjoy selection of nature trips and fun activities.
Additionally, there is an Exhibition room which provides an outline of the different places of interest which you will discover through your visit.
You will also enjoy the visit the fern garden, which includes a plethora of flowers without which any visit in the park would be incomplete.
The unspoiled beauty of the land captures every heart and soul. The park is also home to tortoises, monkeys, stags, fish and also birds such as the Pink Pigeon, Paille en Queue, Cateau Vert with various endemic trees like the Ebony, Bois de Natte, Takamaka and other rare plants also contributing to the beauty of the park.
Enjoy the spellbinding four waterfalls such as the Cascade Vacoas, Cascade Bois de Natte, Cascade Cheveux d'Ange and Cascade Chamouzé where you can get to listen to the rustling water; relax in natural intimacy and feel inner peace. The park also offers a captivating and breathtaking panoramic view of the South Coast.
Rhumerie De Chamarel Distillery
Nestled in the heart of the fertile Chamarel Valley, the Rhumerie de Chamarel Distellery invites you for an all-encompassing tourism experience ranging from a guided visit of the distillery and rum tasting to a tasty meal at L’Alchimiste, its own stylish and creative “A la Carte” restaurant.
The site is surrounded by vast sugarcane plantations growing in harmony with the pineapples and other tropical fruits nearby. The distillery was designed in order to provide a holistic tourism experience to guests.

All is done so that the distillery can pride itself on the quality of its rum, achieved by distilling the fresh, fermented cane juice rather than that obtained from molasses.

Crocodile & Giant Tortoises Nature Park
While exploring the Southern part of Mauritius, a visit to the Crocodile and Giant Tortoises Nature Park is a must.
The nature park is home to the second largest crocodilian and one of the largest tortoises in the world. It is a picturesque and idyllic nature reserve located at Riviere des Anguilles in the south.
It extends across 3.5 hectares, full of luxuriant vegetation consisting of beautiful palm trees, banana plants, giant bamboo trees and other gorgeous shrubs-reflecting a tropical rainforest setting.
During your stay in the park you can also experience a firsthand unique encounter with the giant tortoises, and get a rare chance to feed, pet and play with them.

Built among the tree-tops the restaurant offers you a choice of local Mauritian food and international dishes, and also several dishes made with crocodile, which are definitely worth a try – you will be pleasantly surprised. Snacks and various drinks are also available.
Saint Aubin House
Get a taste of the colonial era of the 19th century Saint Aubin House located at Riviere des Anguilles in the Southern part of Mauritius. Saint Aubin was precisely built in 1819 which was home to several managers of the Saint Aubin sugar estate, and eventually it was renovated in the 90’s to preserve the Mauritian heritage. The estate takes its name from one of its first owners, Pierre de Saint Aubin.
On Saint Aubin estate, a small manufacturing unit has been rebuilt around the ancient sugar mill chimney which stands as a testimony to the past.
The mill has been turned into a live eco museum where locals and tourists alike can observe all the manufacturing stages of the sugar milling process.
The estate has its own sugar cane plantations which lie along the undulating slopes of southern Mauritius. The fields of Saint Aubin have been under sugar cane cultivation since 1819.
Driven by an enduring quest for uncompromising quality, Saint Aubin plantation has brilliantly met the challenge of reconciling innovation, tradition, human dimension and environmental protection.
A visit to the Saint Aubin House consists of a guided tour around the estate where you will have the privilege to visit the Rum House where high quality rum is made; a visit to the Vanilla House where you will discover the interesting transformation process of the vanilla orchid from the flower to the aromatic pod; a visit to the Anthurium (flowers) greenhouses, and also a leisurely stroll in the tropical garden.
The estate is also composed of an elegant colonial residence, a restaurant offering local Creole cuisine, and the Inn which is a typical traditional Creole house with an iron sheeting roof resting on exposed timber beams, teak wood flooring and ancient furniture. To make it more enticing, the Tea Route which is a gastronomical and cultural tour bears testimony to the different facets of the once colonial Mauritius and its traditional lifestyle.
Discover the other side of Mauritius through a visit to one of the oldest tea plantation located in the highlands South of the island at about 500 meters in a cold region. The location serves as an ideal location for the plantation of tea, and offers scenic luxuriant green landscapes.
Dating back to the 1890s, this lush tea plantation is best discovered on foot and offers not only a visual richness but also a flavourful richness of the senses. Bois Chéri has enabled the development of a true culture and tradition of tea in Mauritius. Its factory now produces more than half of the island’s tea.
Attached to the Saint-Aubin Group, Bois Chéri is now part of the famous Tea Route. It allows a guided tour of the tea factory as well as the tea museum. A guided tour to the plantation generally takes around 1 to 2 hours and includes a tour to the Bois Chéri tea factory, visit to the museum and tea plantation, also tea tasting at the chalet.
Le Morne Mountain
The symbolic Le Morne Brabant is a majestic mountain located in the South Western part of Mauritius, on the Le Morne peninsula.
The majestic mountain has been declared as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO since July 6, 2008 to commemorate the Maroonage (runaway slaves) legacy in Mauritius.
It is believed that the slaves were jumping off the cliff of the mountain to commit suicide due to the very inhumane treatment they suffered.
Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island.
It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, which is our floral emblem.
The summit of the mountain covers an area of over 12 hectares (30 acres),and is about 556m above the sea level. There are many caves and overhangs on the steep slopes. It is largely surrounded by a lagoon and is a well known tourist attraction.
Do not miss the breath-taking views of the west and south-western side by a hiking trail which approximately lasts for three to four hours.
Rochester Falls is one of the spectacular waterfalls of Mauritius situated in the Savanne district of Mauritius. The waterfall forms part of the Savanne River which is at an elevation of 152 meters above sea level, approximately 2.5 km from Souillac (the capital of the Savanne district), and it tumbles from a height of about 10 m (33 ft).
It is regarded as a popular tourist attraction due to its lava cliffs: years and years of erosion has led to the formation of a spectacular backdrop of rectangular blocks stuck together. The view of the waterfall is just spellbinding which makes it so enticing. The white water crashing down the rocky cliffs into a pool of crystal clear water, with the lush verdant vegetations in the form of ferns crawling up the smoother parts of the cliffs, and the trees around the river banks make it a perfect location to revitalize your spirit. The place is ideal to spend a picnic and to enjoy the serene atmosphere with the sounds of the falling water and happy chirping of birds.
Black River Gorge National Park
The Black River Gorge National Park is the largest protected area of Mauritius. It extends over 6,754 hectares that is 2 % of rolling hills and thick native forest of the South Western part of the island.
Famous for its waterfalls, vistas and hiking, the gorge is in the central highlands, making it cooler than much of the island. The nature park has over 50 km of trails where you can explore the exquisite natural beauty of this part of the island. Find the spellbinding waterfall, pristine river, picnic areas, wide canyon, and dramatic mountain ranges, which create panoramic views altogether.
There are approximately 311 of native flowering plants, and nine endemic species of bird, with a population of giant fruit bats. Some endangered bird species include the Mauritius kestrel, the echo parakeet, the pink pigeon, Mauritian flying fox, Mauritius bulbul, and Mauritius olive white-eye. You might also find the introduced wild boar, macaque monkeys, and deers wandering in the wild nature.
