#OneLessCupOfCoffee can only do one tour at a time at the moment, so come join us in July for some fun in the sun.
Day 1 – Tuesday 16th July 2019
Flight: MK0852 Johannesburg O.R. Tambo, Terminal B Mauritius Class: Economy. Time: Depart - 13:35 (16-Jul-19) Time: Arrive - 19:35 (16-Jul-19) Flight duration: 04h 00m. Private transfer from airport to hotel in Grand Baie. Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 2 – Wednesday 17th July 2019
Although there are many exciting activities to do in Mauritius, most people come to relax in the sun, try some water sports, and enjoy the sundowners. I suggest you have fun in the sun on your first day. You know – jet lag and all that. Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 3 – Thursday 18th July 2019
Now that you are rested, perhaps you would like to go for a morning swim with the dolphins? Experienced, respectful guides will facilitate a truly magical dolphin encounter with either bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins – or both. Afternoon at your leisure. Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 4 – Friday 19th July 2019
If you can drag yourself off the beach, why not go check out the Ebony Forest Reserve and Seven Coloured Earths in Chamarel? Or maybe the Black River Gorges National Park is more to your liking? Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 5 – Saturday 20th July 2019
Another day on the beach. Or you might want to explore the Aapravasi Ghat in Port Louis - an UNESCO World Heritage Centre, an immigration depot, and part of the ‘Great Experiment’, where modern indentured labour Diaspora emerged. Other options include a visit to the Port Louis market or a relaxing stroll through the Botanical Gardens in Pamplemousses. Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 6 – Sunday 21st July 2019
Hopefully, by now, you would have tried all the water sports, such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and SCUBA diving. Or maybe a spot of deep sea fishing. If so, why not hire a car and take a leisurely drive around this magnificent island. It’s cheaper than a paid tour. Go see Curepipe, Mahebourg, Blue Bay and return via the east side of the island. Stop for lunch. Indulge in some rum tasting. You won’t regret it! Overnight Grand Baie hotel.
Day 7 – Monday 22nd July 2019
Your last day in Mauritius. Awww. Have a quick panic tan. Enjoy some seafood for lunch. Watch the Sega dancers swaying around the beach fire – mesmerizing. Note: Less than 5 minutes away from Grand Baie, is The Club Med Pointe aux Canonniers. They usually allow tourists to buy a Day Pass and enjoy their many facilities (includes as much food and drink as you can consume). Currently unavailable. I will keep checking for updates.
