One of the famous and oldest garden in Mauritius. Very nice place to visit with its centenaries trees among others.
A nice place to send about half a day. Lots of exotic plants introduced in Maurice by French governors found here. Special attractions include giant water lillies, bleeding tree etc..Also the tomb of Father of nation is found here besides an model of an old sugar mill and an old state house. Last but not least its very beautiful and... More
It is worth a visit especially for those with a keen interest in botany etc.. Some of the trees are very very old.. It's also a place to chill with family
These gardens were established during the 1700s when Mauritius was in its infancy as far as the human population was concerned. There is something here to interest everyone. You can either take a quick look round or take a guide book and give the gardens a chance to show all it has to offer. Don't miss the giant water lilies... More
Was dissapointed, especially after visiting the gardens in london and sydney. Some of the parts are even ran down and neglected. Also definatelly not worth the visit if you are coming from another part of the island as the trafic around port louis is terrible.
Took a taxi here, enjoyable few hours, good place to visit if you are interested in plants. Fantastic palms, banyan trees etc. Lovely to see all the different wild birds. Lilies were not looking their best when we visited, apparently they were suffering from a type of virus!
Some trees and lilies destroyed during the floods in the beginning of the year. Waiting for lilies to bloom in full again.
Interesting garden but you really need to use one of the guides to get the most out of it. Very informative.
It is worth taking a guided tour as you learn loads. Allow a lot more time than we did - we had about two hours - as the tour was quite long and we had wanted to go round ourselves afterwards and regretted not having another 2 hours to do it in!
