We had an enjoyable time here and really liked petting the turtles. The cave visit was a little on the long side so I'm glad we did it combined in this visit and skipped the Caverne Patates. Very nice guides.

The property is well maintained and they are making a commendable effort in the reforestation and repopulation of Rodrigues endemic species. The Grande Caverne is also an unforgettable experience with a fine guide...

Dr. Ariel Andre', whom we had the fortunate chance of meeting, has done an extraordinary amount of work to preserve what indigenous flora and fauna has remained in Rodrigues and to re-instate what was before. Giant tortoises are nursed and hosted in a natural canyon where they can grow to over 150 years old. many thousands of former native species... More

It makes for a half day tour and the experience is simply unique. This national park's mission is to return the turtles that have been killed by colonisers centuries ago. Currently they've got a large natural reserve filled with impressive giant turtles. You can walk between them and you can even scratch their necks. It's a wonderful experience. You also... More

Nice discovery. The guide Mr Darlin made the trip it more interesting for children and adults with his stories.

My wife and I went for the full tour, which comprises the caves and walk with the tortoises. She was awed at the big animals. She was the only English speaker there, yet our guide translated everything for her. I am quite impressed at how much Rodriguans are commited to the conservation of their fauna and flora. Keep up the... More

The whole experience is very well organised. The walk starts with a shirt talk about the area, some history, zoology, botany but all delivered in a very comprehensive and amusing way. Then the walk through the cave - which is really well secured. Do take the helmet you are offered and wear it - some parts are suddenly narrow or... More
