Mauritius Airport Car Rental

Mauritius is a fabulous holiday destination with beautiful white sandy beaches and exotic flora and fauna. The island has a rich history too and if you’ve hired a car the national parks and wild jungles of the interior make for a fascinating day out.

For a more genteel look at the flora of the island, visit Labourdonnais Orchards where many types of fruit trees grow in abundance and such is the size of the orchards you can hike or mountain bike around them on marked trails. Finish your stay at Vieux Grand Port where the first Dutch colony was situated.
