What people are saying about Savanne District

Wow what a fantastic experience!!! Rajesh our driver for the day collected us from the hotel, took us to the boats to go out and swim with the dolphins. He gave us a fantastic oversight of the country, its people and history during the journey. We got to swim with the dolphins, the guides helping us locate them. Be aware there will be quite a few boats trying to find the dolphins, so this is not a 1:1 experience but was still worth the journey. Snorkel and flippers were provided and take a Gopro if you have one! After this experience (around 2 hours) we were taken by Rajesh to see the waterfall, 7 coloured earth and giant tortoises (this is Rs500 pp extra) plus taken to see the Hindu temple at the great lake. Rajesh can explain everything to you, his knowledge was extensive. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, however I would say this trip is NOT for families with young children, the dolphins are but not the whole tour as its a very long day.

An unforgettable experience! Just after a few meters of sailing we saw 2 dolphins and 3 whales! Then we sailed in the open sea and we saw many dolphins and whoever wanted could dive into the water and admire the wonderful creatures, all in absolute safety. The dolphins don't come towards you, so you have to swim fast to keep up with them, I recommend bringing the necessary equipment (mask and tube) because the boat didn't have many to lend, for those who have them I also recommend bringing fins (in negative case on the boat they have some available). For lunch they delighted us with a barbecue on the beach. Highly recommended experience!

We had an unforgettable day with our guide Robin. He picked us up on time and showed and told so much, it was just great. A highlight for our children was the dolphin swim. Visiting the national park was great too. The seven earths are really something very special. The visit to the temple in Grand Bassin was also very impressive, where Robin gave us a very interesting insight into Hinduism. We would do another tour with Robin as our guide at any time. Thank you so much, dear Robin, it was a pleasure being with you on a day trip in the south of Mauritius!

Hotel pickup was on time. After a few minutes we saw dolphins. It is exhausting to keep up with the dolphins, so you should be able to swim well. Just seeing the dolphins from the boat was amazing. The coconut island was beautiful and the barbecue was really delicious. Suddenly a whale jumped up on our boat. That made this perfect day even better! We were able to watch the whale for at least half an hour and he even had a baby with him. Breathtaking experience!

Very very good experience, the locals we were with were great And the final surprise (with luck of course) the whales ❤️
