Mauritius tours & holiday packages

The magical island off the African coast that will leave you relaxed and ready for more

The mountainous island of Mauritius just east of Madagascar is an unspoiled island destination for those looking for privacy and uncomprimising solitude.

The majority of tourists visit Mauritius between the summer months of October and April, the island has amazing weather all year round, with temperatures looming around 30°C but the rains which usually appear during January to March will cool things off.

If you're not keen on this steamy, humid weather, then Mauritius between July and September is ideal with temperatures hovering around 25°C, perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking.

More on Mauritius holidays

The Republic of Mauritius, the main island, from which the Mauritius derives its name, is of volcanic origin and is almost entirely surrounded by the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean.

Mauritius was the home of the now extinct dodo, a large flightless bird, closely related to pigeons. The Dodo was forced into extinction close to the end of the 17th century due to hunting and the introduction of predatory species.
