Trip description:

A 7 days escape to the paradise island of Rodrigues, ideal for travelers in search of a decompressing & detoxicating  week. The 2nd largest territory of Mauritius is located at 1h30 flight from the main Island’s airport, and it’s best known for its slow-paced lifestyle and pristine landscapes, sometimes referred to as “Mauritius 30 years ago”. Take a leap back on time to a culture of hand-crafted basketry, spicy pickles and the most delicious fresh octopus curry.

Trip highlights:

  • You’ll feast on Rodrigues’ traditional gastronomy through your 3 Lodges’ kitchens, which support products from the immediate area like their famous octopus curry, corn rice and green papaya salad.
  • You’ll hike to the highest point of Rodrigues, Mt. Limon, and trek on the virgin beaches of the Eastern coast, while helping us pick-up litter with a My Green Trip kit.
  • You’ll snorkel in the magnificent spots of Couzoupa and Riviere Banane, which host more than 25 different species of corals!
  • Through a sailing trip in a traditional pirogue you’ll discover the Southern Islets of Ile aux Chat and Ile Hermitage

Travelers’ reviews:

We had a great time in Mauritius, thanks to Romina, who is one of the few travel agents that actually really care about the well being of their clients. (And also about the well being of the island itself.) She is also incredibly fast with organizing things last minute. And thanks to our hiking guide JB, a great and big hearted guy, with so much knowledge and so much humour.
So if you want to travel in Mauritius, contact Mauritius Conscious, you won’t regret it. That’s quite impossible.

I had a mixed bag of travelers, I.e An adventure lover, a young kid, a teenager and a safety conscious lady. To have a wonderful vacation covering the interests of all members was a challenge in itself. But, Mauritius Conscious ensured that the itinerary was designed with absolute perfection so that everybody’s priorities were addressed. On top of it, it was a very professional yet flexible service that made the experience even more exciting!

We had an awesome experience with Mauritius Conscious! A highlight was when we explored a family’s organic farm where we got to pick all the fruits and vegetables that we subsequently cooked and ate with the couple. They grew the most delicious fruits (and they sent us home with beautiful passion fruits!!) Every tour we went on introduced us to new layers of Mauritian history and culture.

From the first moment we reached out to Mauritius Conscious it was a pure pleasure. Romina contacted us directly via WhatsApp which was super convenient. We had a couple of nice chats and she arranged everything according to our wishes and situation. Since we were traveling with a 1-year old the accommodations were superb so were the activities we did. The hike to Le Morne is a definite must and the guided family walk through Bras d’eau was super interesting, we really learned a lot. Finally we got to know Romina in person and went for a sundowner at the rooftop terrace in the Mystik hotel which rounded up the whole experience.
Double thumbs up and good luck for the future. Thanks a lot for everything!

Thanks to Romina we could make the most of our little time on Mauritius! She went with us through every detail and listened to all our needs to make our holiday spot on, letting us get to know the authentic side Island being conscious of its environment and inhabitants. Couldn’t have asked for more!!

Alice Burton - Australia

My sister and I had the chance to spend two weeks exploring the Island with Mauritius Conscious and we truly appreciated the experience. Each activity we did was lead by one or two local guides that provided us with very fascinating information about the place, its tradition, culture and people. Through them, we got to become closer to Mauritians and discovered the country from the inside out. We got to explore the ocean (diving and sea kayaking), the mountains and sugar cane fields (mountain and e-bike), and the local places and villages (guided visit of Poudre d’Or). All of it was a truly unique experience that we would recommend!
