MAURITIUS DISCOVERY
» 07 Jan 2009
DOMAINE DE L’ETOILE

It stretches over 1200 hectares of indigenous woods, including hills, mountains, valleys, ponds and rivers. The visit aptly starts with awelcoming cocktail that visitors may enjoy whilst admiring the longest river in Mauritius, namely the Grand River South East, which runs across the Domaine. The gentle sound of rushing water complements the sweet songs of birds, enticing visitors to discover this pristine world.


A range of activities and guided tours are proposed to guests so that they may fully explore the sprawling landscape.To begin with, the magnificent slopes offer several trekking possibilities of varying levels of difficulty.

Hikers will not only fulfill their desire to be away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, but will also have the exceptional chance to admire Mauritian flora and fauna. Indeed, the Domaine presents hundreds of different varieties of plants and trees, including the most ancient ebony trees of Mauritius. Wild animals may also be observed amidst the lush vegetation; deer, boars, monkeys and bats as well as rare species of birds such as the "Cateau Vert" and the Mauritius Kestrel.

Other popular activities at L'Etoile are mountain biking, horse back excursions, four-wheel drives, archery and quad nature trails.These activities are not only for experienced visitors; the quad leisure vehicles, for example, are most comfortable, user-friendly and secure. A thrilling quad trail experience in the reserve may thus be enjoyed by young and old alike. The trails lead to several viewpoints from which visitors may behold panoramic views of Mauritius. One may behold the magnificent "Vieux Grand Port" bay which received the first Dutch explorers in 1638; also the historic bungalow of "Falaise Rouge" where Captain Decaen of the French navy conceived his strategy against the British for the naval battle of 1810.

After the invigorating activities, guests are warmly received at the restaurant for mouth-watering lunches which comprise both traditional Mauritian cuisine and international menus. The use of products from the domain (including the delicious palm-heart and various spices) adds freshness and authenticity to the dishes. Dinners and theme evenings are organised as well for those who wish to enjoy sunset at Domaine de L'Etoile.

A day spent at Domaine de L'Etoile leaves one truly enchanted. A nature lover's paradise, it offers a wide range of choices so that every visitor will leave well satisfied.
