What People Are Saying About Mauritius
This was the highlight of my holiday in Mauritius. The conservation efforts are worthy of support. The guides - both on the island and in the glass bottomed boat over the coral reefs - easily shared their knowledge of these environments. I advise visitors to take local currency to the island so they can buy mementoes/ t-shirts that contribute to the conservation programmes. The shop does not take credit cards.
Very informative. Saw most all of the different fauna highlighted on the information boards. Learned a lot about the effects of colonisation on the island flora and fauna. Interesting to learn about all the programmes and research and the affiliation with Chester Zoo in England. Gratifying to learn that the animals are supported but left to roam the island as they wish, that they are given as natural a life as is possible.
