We visited this attraction on our first trip to Mauritius 14 years ago and returned this trip with friends on their first holiday in Mauritius. Coloured Earth has improved quite a bit in 14 years adding a café, gift shop, walk paths & viewing platforms in the sights was welcomed. The attraction itself is geographically interesting and the site needed some additional interest to make the visit worthwhile. Giant turtles are enclosed at the bottom of a landscaped area. The addition of local plants in the landscape area was interesting for me as a keen gardener. Trees are labelled well however listed in their Latin names which may be a bit complicated for non gardeners, an improvement might be to include common names (where available). Friends certainly took more interest when I pointed out that one tree was related to Cocoa (I may be corrected on that). However plant/trees such as Coffee or cocoa could be labelled with common names to add interest for visitors.
A pleasant stop as we journeyed through Black River Gorges National Park.
