TRAVEL INTERNATIONAL Visitors to Mauritius, off the south-east coast of Africa, experience cultures, religions and historic and culinary influences from Britain, France, Africa and India, amid the buzz of urban island life. TINA LIPTAI WILDLIFE A visit to the Black River Gorges National Park, which covers about two per cent of the island and is located in the south-west corner, is a chance to encounter more than 300 species of plants and nine species of birds. The park is accessible by car and can also be explored on foot. More adventurous travellers will find themselves face-toface with big cats at the Casela Nature and Leisure Park, where a walk with the lions is an opportunity not to be missed. Accompanied by professional guides, visitors enter a special part of the park where they literally walk among the lions. Be sure to follow the rules though – these are wild animals, and the consequences of startling them or straying from the human pack are just as you would expect. Shop ’til you drop Port Louis, the nation’s capital, is a great place to give your credit card a workout. The city has mall-style shopping along the waterfront, and markets worth visiting for bargains and souvenirs. While in the capital, visit one of the world’s oldest racecourses, Champ de Mars. Those keen to indulge in the luxury travel the island is famous for can visit the resorts, villas and hotels around the coast to soak in the swimming pools, lie on the beach, enjoy spa treatments or sip cocktails while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. 14 | www.probussouthpacific.org
