Ile aux Aigrettes Nature Reserve
Start your adventureat Pointe Jrome, where you will embark on a small boat that will take you across the turquoise waters to Ile aux Aigrettes: a small coralisland situated off of the southeast coastof Mauritius. The island has been a nature reserve since 1965, andis home to unique flora and fauna, that was once considered on the verge of extinction. After arrival on the island, you will meet one of the trained and knowledgeable rangers who will accompany you on a guided 1.5 to 2 hour hike around the island. As a result of the successful conservation efforts by scientists on the island, you will have the opportunity to view unique species such as the Mauritian Fody, Pink Pigeon, giant Aldabra Tortoise, and the Ornate Day Gecko in a safe and protected environment. You will also discover the original trees and vegetation that, before the arrival of man, covered Mauritius and its surrounding islands. While the hike is not strenuous, remember to bring some good walking shoes!
