The collection is mostly trees and we found it fairly uninspiring although it was winter so it could have just been the season. Everything just seemed to be neglected. This would certainly be a wonderful place to visit on a hot day to escape the heat, but as a botanical garden it was disappointing.

And I suggest to take golf cart tour and learn a lot about the amazing collection of plants , see a lot of rare species and enjoy ... history of the gardens. kavish was... More

Our visit was one of the highlights from a South Tour of Mauritius and believe me, no regrets at all! The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical, commonly known as the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden is situated in the same village name. It covers an area of around 37 hectares. This garden, ranked third among all the gardens that could be admired over... More

It is worth combining this attraction with a visit to Port Louis Waterfront and Market. The gardens is a 15 minute bus ride away from the Waterfront and can be visited once you have seen Port Louis. We went there on a wet day, but continued to remain positive as I longed for the sun to come out so that... More

We went there in an afternoon by engaging a very humorous and knowledgeable guide Mr Mann. It's a pity that we went too late and have toured probably only 25% of the area as it closed at 5pm. If you like green plants, walking, natures, you must pay a visit here while you are in the north, i. e. Port... More

Although Mauritius is known for it's beaches, a trip to the capital Port Louis is worth a day visit and coming to this botanical garden is a refreshing change from the tropical beaches

Definitely one of the highlights to see while visiting Mauritius, this 26-acre gem makes for a wonderful morning or afternoon stroll. Started by the French in the early 18th century, it harbors many monstrous specimens (see our picture of the Senegalese baobab) that make for great photo-ops. Even children will love a trip here. We visited a similarly dated tropical... More
