Giants Tortoise were the only real attractions; i think it should be named Tortoise Park instead. Entry fees is too high. Tortoise can be seen at other places also as such would not recommend wasting money and time.

A small attraction just off the main coastal road. Fantastic one on one with tortoises. Say hello to the crocodiles and there are nurseries for both. Recommended.

It was not that easy to find - we had a rented car and mauritian roads are not the best signed in the world. Still we have finally managed to get there and it was very interesting, especially the giant tortoises. There are 150 of those fantastic creatures groupped in a place (pretty spacy) where you can watch them sleeping,... More

Walking amongst them and being able to touch them was one of the absolute highlights of the holiday! Our 3yo was even... More

Advice to go on Wed or Sathurday when feeding of crocodiles can be watched. apart of that you can enjoy meeting with turtules. Not a lot of attractions so to be visited when you are already very bored with your hotel and sea :)
