Mauritius Family Safaris, Locations, Accomodation & Travel Itineraries
Why Mauritius for a Safari?
Mauritius Family-friendly Activities
There is much to do for families and Mauritius generously rewards those who venture out. Once you've had your fill of beach-lounging and diving coral reefs, take an excursion to the exquisite botanical gardens.
Hike or bike in the Black River Gorges National Park, or visit the plantation mansion-turned-museum for a historic look at the island's colonial past. Why not set aside a morning to explore the horse-riding trails that wind through the island’s forested hills? Or take the family souvenir shopping at the Port Louis or Grand Baie markets. On some nearby islets, you can enjoy a stretch of beach all to yourselves for a sumptuous picnic.
Mauritius Accommodation Options
Nearly all accommodation in Mauritius is set right on the coast, providing easy access to inviting beaches and excellent coral reefs for diving and snorkelling.
Stayovers range from large resorts with swimming pools and long rows of shaded sun loungers, to secluded private villas and beachfront cabins where privacy takes preference over on-demand activities. Many lodges and hotels offer child-minding services and Kids Clubs with age-appropriate activities, making Mauritius the ideal choice for a stress-free island break.
Family Safari Itineraries
Mauritius is roughly divided into four regions, each with its own landscape, vibe and attractions.
Where you choose to visit will depend on your specific interests and expectations for your vacation. Whether you want to suntan by day and be entertained with fine dining and live music by night. Or a quiet nook for your family to go hiking and birding, there is something just for you.
