Expert Speak

While this may be an itinerary that comes tagged to a typical hotel package, all that is included within is certainly not a must do. Guests may opt to do different things based on their individual profile and preferences. E.g. Family travellers may opt for a visit to Casela Bird Park and Ile aux Aigrettes Nature reserve, where as a getaway / adventure seeker may focus more on watersports instead of a North and South Island tours. The same itinerary is possible from any destination in Mauritius with minor modifications.
