Must love dogs
If you love dogs of all shapes and sizes, this Experience is for you. Visit the Happy Tails Sanctuary, in the south of the island, home to 130 rescue dogs! Most of these lovable furry friends have come from the streets & some previously had an "owner." Unwanted, unloved or abused, they all have a sad story to tell about their past All the dogs at the sanctuary are up for adoption and sponsorship and the animal loving team works 24/7 on making sure their suffering days are over. They have a big dog park to play in and also a lovely house to rest in with their favourite canine friends. You can play, walk and run with the dogs and get smothered in kisses! Your visit contributes towards the wellbeing of the sanctuary dogs and also towards hosting sterilisation campaigns locally in order to reduce the overpopulation of straying dogs on the island. Ps: EXCITING PUP-DATE: We have a litter of 8 puppies born at the sanctuary on the 1st of May 2022!!! Mum & Puppies waiting to meet you!

Tours around the islands
Coin of paradise at over 550m altitude, Morne Brabant is an imposing mountain located southwest of Mauritius. Amazing because of its extreme aridity during the dry season, we take advantage of its height for hiking on the mountainside and discover breathtaking views. But more than just a trek destination, Le Morne Brabant is also famous for its beautiful beach. THE PARADISE OF HIKERS This is one of the most spectacular summits of the island, and yet, still few travellers decide to hike on the Morne Brabant. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the mountain offers extremely steep and hard-to-reach slopes. And yet, its ascent is still possible and provides access to an exceptional view of the surrounding landscape: Filaos, Banyan and Badamiers surrounded by a sand of dazzling whiteness ...

Les Septs Cascades - Tamarinds Falls
The 7 waterfalls, also called the Tamarin waterfalls, represent a truly mythical excursion to Mauritius and it is true that the place is totally unmissable. It is a hike with a moderate level of difficulty, rather simple, but its duration and the fact that it is slippery in places, still requires a minimum of effort. This is a hike that takes place most of the time in the shade, however the pools at the foot of the waterfalls are in the sun, so bring sunscreen if you plan to bathe. The mosquito repellant, on the other hand, will be a pleasant companion when you progress in wooded and humid areas. Other things to note Cancellation in case of heavy rain or cyclones Not accessible to people with reduced mobility Not recommended for pregnant women No heart or other serious medical problems This tour / activity is private. Only your group will participate.
Explore the Seven Cascades
Our guided trek into the wild and lush greenery of the Tamarind Falls is an adventurous, top-rated option for enjoying the falls. The name itself says "7 Cascades" but you will actually discover up to 13 falls! Tamarind Falls plunge through a dramatic, intensely green canyon sheltered by mature woods and clothed in moss and ferns. Unlike the common way to explore the 7 Cascades, the trek begins off the beaten track where you will be heading to the bottom of all the connected waterfalls. As from there you will be walking into the wild forests filled with exotic plants and birds. This activity includes both walking in the woods, near the water, multiple river crossing and few rock scrambling areas which can be tackled by both beginner and expert trekkers. Enough time will be available to relax and enjoy the astonishing views of the waterfalls. Jumping from one plateau to another is prohibited. Participants must have a good level of fitness and not having any fear of heights. The terrain is, most of the time, slippery and muddy. **Possible starting times for this trip are: 8:30 and 9:30.
