If you are visiting Port-Louis during the horse-racing season, you must visit the Champs de Mars or even if you have a soft corner for the history of Mauritius, it is a must.

We love horse racing so when we saw this trip, we knew it was perfect for us. Alittle pricey at first was our first thoughts (£130 each) but we had a private box, own tote, free drink and free canapes all day !! perfect and honestly worth the money.
