I had read about Mauritius in travel blogs before but it wasn’t until our recent trip to South Africa that this exotic island became a reality. In all honestly our initial plan was to travel from South Africa to Madagascar for a 2 week trip around that island, but after a sudden intensified outbreak of the plague there we re-routed our trip to Mauritius instead.
A French speaking predominantly Indian heritage island that is known as a honeymoon destination seemed like the right way to sum up 2.5 months in Africa.
And so we set off from Johannesburg after a week of volunteering at an animal conservation center near Kruger National Park, to the small island nation of Mauritius.
From a rainy day into immediate sunshine we landed into the hot and humid air of Mauritius.
From there our 10 day stay
