Hired a double quad bike to explore the nature reserve...it was a great couple of hours. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was more than happy to take lots of photos for us. We saw wild deer up close which was amazing! It was great fun and a fab way to see the beauty of the island!

Whitley

5.0/5.0

We took a tour of the reserve on quad bikes. It was absolutely brilliant, having never ridden one before. Our guide was excellent and the bikes tour was about three hours. Despite being advised to wear full footwear and long trousers most didn't, but it was a benefit. Mosquitoes were not really prevalent in November but I am sure they will be by Xmas. With no preparation I was amazed at the large herd of deer. Apparently we are the only source of meat on the island. The views were stunning down to the south coast. Miss this opportunity and your visit will not be complete.

4.9/5.0

Beautiful coast, endless Indian ocean view in Gris Gris, very different from the west coast, nice rest street food truck available.

Talen

4.8/5.0

The Vanille Park was one of the highlights on our Mauritius-trip, because you literally keep in touch with the venerable tortoises. And right after stepping into the park one quickly feels and sees that it is kept with care, love and responsibility.
