About Parc François Leguat in Mauritius

The Parc François Leguat in Mauritius is a popular attraction for the island of Rodrigues. The reserve covers around 20 hectares of land. It was named after the French explorer and naturalist François Leguat who settled on the uninhabited island of Rodrigues in the western Indian Ocean in the year 1691.

There has been a project in the recent years to plant shrubs and trees that once grew in this area. The area has one of most unique flora and fauna. The government of Mauritius and environmentalists have reintroduced many animal species to the spot to create its older environment. The reserve has rare species and green vegetation.

There have been around 1,015 baby tortoises born in the Parc François Leguat by September 2001. By the year 2008, there have been 1,500 tortoises born in the reserve. The Mauritian Wildlife Foundation helps in conservation and preservation of the Parc François Leguat.

People usually visit the Parc François Leguat to walk amongst the giant tortoises. The reserve also has the Radiata tortoises from Madagascar amongst the giant Aldabra tortoises. Tourists can also enjoy the tranquillity and greenery of the reserve along with the tortoises. There are many rare Rodrigues fruit bats in the caves which can be seen by the tourists when they visit the magnificent caves.

There is also a museum located at the site which tells a long evolutionary story of Rodrigues. The trek in the reserve can be moderately difficult.

The Parc François Leguat museum tells a unique story of the Rodrigues Island from its discovery to the modern days. Tourists can find many endemic species of flora and fauna. There are many extinct species on show in the museum. The limestone geology of the Plaine Corail is also explained in the galleries of the museum. Tourists can also find a life-size sculpture of one of the extinct species of the giant tortoise as an exhibit. There are also a few paintings that recreate man's early days on this island. Pictures of long-extinct bird and reptile species of Mascarene Islands are on display in this museum.

There is a small cafe where tourists can enjoy some food. A small souvenir shop is also attached to the museum. Tourists can buy souvenirs and books about the islands from these souvenir shops.

    Jyotsna's 5 days trip to Mauritius

    Pocket friendly has some of the most unprofessional personnel. The lady who booked the trip was pleasant only till the full payment was made. There was no response from her. Luckily contact of another person named Deepak was provided who at least gave his best efforts. The itinerary provided was wro
    ng and I had booked leisure activities on the basis of itinerary provided by the company. I came to find out about the change only after reaching Mauritius. On raising the issue, the personnel started accusing me instead of providing a solution leave alone apologising. Later they refunded part of my losses on account of their mistake. Will not recommend "pocket friendly vacation" to anyone till they get better customer support.

    I recently had the pleasure of going on a trip to Mauritius, and I can't express how grateful I am for the excellent service provided by Ramsha from Travel n Tales. From the beginning, we were offered multiple quotes for different hotels and ensured we had various accommodation options to choose fro
    m. The meticulous planning continued with well-organized pick-ups, drop-offs, and seamless arrangements for local sightseeing in Mauritius. Thanks to Ramsha, our trip was not only enjoyable but also stress-free. I highly recommend Travel n Tales for their exceptional service and attention to detail.
