Setting sail from Port Louis
The lovely island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is striking in the contrasts between its mountainous backdrop and beautiful white sand beaches. The capital Port Louis, on the northwest coast, dates back to 1735 and is a busy administrative centre, packed with office workers during the day. Interesting as it is, visitors arriving in Port Louis may well choose to travel immediately to other areas of the island, as it boasts many excellent hotels. Although English is the official language, French is more widely spoken and most Mauritians will also speak Creole in relaxed settings.
The Aapravasi Ghat Immigration Depot, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This historical depot welcomed over half a million immigrants in the late 19th century and has an extraordinary history.
Mauritius: Cargados Shoals
Madagascar: Antsiranana, Ambohitralanana
Madagascar: Nosy Mangabe
The island of Nosy Mangabe is situated within Masaola National Park, and is home to a remarkable variety of wildlife, including leaf-tailed geckos, lemurs, frogs and chameleons. The thick forest also provides a refuge for the elusive aye-aye, which was introduced to the island in the 1960s to protect the species from extinction.
Madagascar: Mananara, Ile Sainte Marie
The Indian Ocean island of Réunion is home to an intoxicating cultural mix of French, African and Asian influences. The lush landscape of spectacular lakes and rugged mountains has been shaped by volcanic activity, and the smouldering Piton de la Fournaise is one of the world’s most active volcanoes.
