If kids are up for swimming with dolphins, going on a 1500 animal strong wildlife safari, riding camels, tobogganing and ziplining too, this 250ha park is one of the island’s top family days out, with good reason.
Amazingly enough, this friendly nature park is home to the world’s largest collection of giant tortoises, and it’s worth a visit for feeding time alone.
One of the island’s top kitesurfing centres and highly recommended for first timers, their fast progress lessons for kids are a bit of a local legend.
Mauritius is a brilliant island for experienced divers. But kids as young as seven don’t need any scuba skills to head underwater in Aquaventure helmets. They can walk on the seabed, eyeball exotic marine creatures, and it’s all thrilling and perfectly safe too.
Once more prized than gold, sugar is intrinsically linked to the history of Mauritius. This fantastic interactive museum lets kids explore everything from the island’s grand plantation houses to the nitty gritty of cane harvesting and the industry’s sweet, and not so sweet, myths and more.
