Get to Know Mauritius

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.
