To all these green tourists out there, this page is made for you! And for those who need to be converted to environment friendly GREEN tourism, we’ve got our green paint ready to splash you with some fantastic ideas and activities to do this August! Mauritius boasts a splendid natural environment and by that, we do not only mean luscious turquoise seas and white golden beaches but also mangroves, rivers, forests, endemic plants and animals which can be found inland. For those who are scared of getting bitten by those nasty mosquitoes or simply getting sun burnt, rest assured, we’ve packed this article with guidelines for you to have a smooth and memorable encounter with Mother Nature.


Who doesn’t dread those extra kilos which somehow manage to follow us back home from our holidays? They usually come along with these jam packed suitcases... Well with mountainbiking, you can eat all those dholl puris and delicacies the island offers, have a great time exploring our mountains and its picture perfect sceneries, while staying in great shape! It’s all about having the right balance after all! There are many mountainbiking trails in Mauritius. You just need to know where they are. Yemaya Adventures can help you out to find the most beautiful trails of the island. If you are a beginner, flat cultural trails are better suited until you become a regular mountainbiker and indulge in the more challenging trails.


Bras d`Eau (Roches Noire)

We’ve decided to give you a slight glimpse into the Bras d’Eau trail which is great for both beginners and professionals. The trail starts off the coast of Roches Noires then winds in between some bush forests before joining the old railway line where some lava caves are found. The ride will take you along the ancient railway line until you reach the long awaited, exotic forest of Bras d`Eau in all its untouched beauty. Stay focused and slowly take in the natural sights as you may set your eyes on some endemic plants and animals. We won’t spoil the fun any longer as we are sure you will enjoy some exploration and discovery of your own.


Hiking Trips

For those of you who want to keep things simple and yet enjoy the nature scenes, we’ve got some great hiking venues lined up. Indeed, Mauritius has some great hikes from mountain trails to endemic forest trails where you can observe the bird and insect life while learning about the conservation work. Ile d’Ambre is one of them. One of the last wild sanctuaries of the country, Ile d’Ambre and its dense mangroves is a peaceful paradise; the hike will take you along the forests of the island crossing past the ruins and conservation areas. You will be able to see the volcanic crater and fresh water cave and learn about its history. Other great hiking venues include Black River Gorges, Macchabée forest, La Nicolière reserve and Le Pouce.

Le Pouce

Le Pouce is the third highest mountain of the island. After an accession of approx. 1hr 30 minutes you will reach the summit (812mts). The spectacular view onto the North, the capital and the center is breath taking. Beginners, rest assured, you do not need to have the skills of Edmund Hillary or Tenzing Norgay for this trek. Our mountains are not that high but if you feel out of breath, stop and lose yourself in the breathtaking sceneries.


Sea Kayaking


Mauritius is an idyllic location for Sea Kayaking. Its beautiful vast protected lagoons offer great paddling experiences. From mangroves mazes to river mouths, as well as huge crystal clear lagoons & isolated islets. And for the more experienced paddlers, open water crossings are available. Paddle through the mangroves of Ile d`Ambre & soak in the peace and quiet. Learn about this fascinating plant and its vital role in the marine eco system. Visit the ruins & forest of this tranquil islet and discover its history. The silent motion that surrounds kayaking makes it an extremely serene and relaxing activity. The harmony and symbiosis with nature is imminent and we highly recommend this activity whether you are in group, with your partner or with your family as it will altogether be an enriching experience.
