Great Trip! Definitely worthwhile if you are into nature adventures. Along with the buggies, they offer quads and 4x4 tours too. It felt like we were riding through Jurassic Park. Even with a minor mechanical failure and having to swap out for a new ride, our guides were very helpful and hospitable. They were very knowledgeable of the environment as well and could answer all of our questions. The waterfall was majestic and was a great spot to cool off. I highly recommend visiting Bel Ombré and taking the off-road tours. It was one of the highlights of our time in Mauritius.

We ended up with 3 buggies and 3 quads for this excursion, the quads being placed in front of the buggies. Unfortunately 2 of the 3 quad drivers were not good at driving and were slowing down the group, which was admitted by our guide and somewhat spoiled our enjoyment. We asked to pass in front of the quads which was refused. The expected sensations were therefore not completely at the RV and the first part was a walk in the park. Several mechanical problems required the replacement of 3 vehicles.
