What is it? One of the world’s best botanical gardens.
Why go? These beautiful gardens are often compared to Kew Gardens in London. At Kew, however, you have to go inside giant glasshouses to see and smell some of the world’s most fantastical tropical plants. Here in the Pamplemousses area of Mauritius, you see them growing in an outdoor garden in a setting often not too dissimilar to their natural habitat.
If you want to find the tree that helps cure flatulence and learn about how the water lilies that emerge white amongst the vast Amazonica lily pads close red a day later, book a private guided tour.
