Day by day
Fly from London to Mauritius overnight.
Upon arrival in Mauritius you be met by our representatives and taken to your driver for the private road transfer to the Chamarel Mountains, a journey that should take just over an hour.
Settle into the charming Lakaz Chamarel, your home for the next 3 nights. Flight times vary but you should have time today for an afternoon at leisure, exploring the grounds of the hotel and surrounding mountains with a short walk.
One of the highlights of Lakaz Chamarel is its fantastic location surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Black River Gorges National Park.
There are a number of different activities you can arrange from the hotel including guided walks to valleys and waterfalls or an energetic hike up to Piton Canot. It's also possible to explore on foot by yourself from the hotel.
Today you have another day at leisure to enjoy as you choose. You might like to visit the nearby rum distillery, take a bike ride into nearby Chamarel village and the unusual Seven Coloured Earth. Slightly further afield you could visit sleepy coastal towns on the south-west coast.
Your private guide and driver will collect you from the airport and as you drive north to the next hotel, they will help you see more of the island on a full day tour. Visit L'Aventure du Sucre where Mauritius' heritage and history are tied in with the sugar industry at a historic sugar estate. Then visit Chateau Labourdonnais, a beautiful example of a grand French colonial home.
Today you are at leisure to do as you wish and there are a number of activities which we can offer should you choose to be a little more active. Hiring a car is a great way to explore the island independently and meeting some of the charming local people.
Learn more about Mauritius' Creole heritage and food on a full day tour with a private driver-guide today. Start with a walking tour of Port Louis sampling street food before lunch at a local Creole family home and an afternoon visit to Le Domaine des Aubineaux.
Sailing trips are a great way to get a different perspective on the island and you might like to take a catamaran trip to Deux Cocos today.
