The botanical garden of Mauritius is quite a popular spot with wondrous tropical plants with a wide range of vegetables, fruits, flowers and more. Formerly recognized as Sir Seewoosagar Ramgoolam, the enormous garden is also historically significant. The garden area is home to ponds as well and makes for an excellent picnic spot. The garden is stretched over an area of 37.5 hectares. It is one of the most visited spots in Mauritius and can’t be missed when in Pamplemousses.

The biggest botanical garden I have ever been to. It was a good experience, just be sure to allocate enough time to tour. It's really huge. There's great history to this place and I will definitely go back there and spend an entire day walking around. There's plants from all over the world and plants that were planted by important policitians from around the world.
The scenery is breathtaking. There I a wide variety of plant species. The main attraction are the water lillies, which are a must see. There are also some animals like tortoise there. A great way to spend a few hours. Great for nature lovers.
Nice botanical garden. Spent a two hours exploring an exotic fauna and flora.I heard it is the oldest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere.... 85 types of palm trees, from bottle palms, royal palms to the talipot palm which blooms every 40 years or so and then dies... ponds filled with giant water lilies and abundant bird life. Cinnamon tree, camphor, nutmeg, clove trees... The Mauritius botanical garden is about 10 km North East of Port Louis and a 15 minute drive from the North coast.
What a amazing place this is. In memory of the first president of MRU and wow its something to go and see. Amazing views and lots of plants and wildlife.
April is probably not the best month to visit the gardens as not many things are in flower but we did enjoy our trip. The gardens have a great variety of trees and plants and are very attractive to walk around. One should get there early to avoid the rush. 90 minutes to 2 hours is more than enough time to get round the gardens. Not a good idea to sit or stand still for too long as the mosquitos will give you a few souvenirs. One thing that I think is pretty bad is the advert saying that a guide costs 50 Rupees per person for 1-4 people. This is not the case. We started walking with a guide and he then told us that it would be 400 Rupees each. They do not want to work unless they have big groups to guide. It's pretty disgusting. Sure.. charge 400 but don't then advertise that it is 50. See one of my pictures for the price list. Worth a visit but don't get ripped off.
