The second oldest racecourse in the world and the oldest one in the southern hemisphere, the Champ de Mars is a place rich in history and a spot where you can live the Mauritian culture and passion for horse racing for real.

We booked the VIP tour with jack. The sights and sound amazing. It is different to Australia where it is about the pretension. This was good honest fun. We had a great day, ate some food, drank some beer and won some money would do it again
