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.

    Koolmayuri's 7 days trip to Mauritius

    Travel triangle representative was not there at all to help me. Only Agent service was good. Next time I would like to book trip directly with Aga Holidays and not through Travel triangle.

    Nainarupesh's 7 days trip to Mauritius

    The agent first confirmed the booking and took the booking amount. Then asked to change the hotel as they could not provide the same hotel and asked for more money. The agent was impolite at multiple times and changed his own words as suited him. First he told the final payment needs to be made 15 d
    ays prior to the trip, but then asking for the payments much earlier. When I pointed out his chats to him, he told he will need to check with the hotel for this.

    Veenaht's 5 days trip to Mauritius

    We had a great time in Mauritius and thank you Arun from Divine Journey for planning the trip. The hotel Constance Belle Mare Plage was excellent to stay at. The water activities at the hotel were also very interesting with the exception of the glass bottom boat. The north tour was mildly interesti
    ng and could have been made into a half day excursion. The Valley of Colours and Volcano crater was uninteresting to us who have seen many geographic formations. The experience may differ may differ from person to person. The activities at the Valley of Colours were fun but overpriced. The Ganga Talao was refreshing to visit. All the drivers were friendly and the transfers were clean and hygenic. It would have really nice if you had added the walk with the lions at Casela Park. Overall, we had a wonderful time in Mauritius.

    Snpal's 7 days trip to Mauritius

    Overall, the Trip was very good and we enjoyed. Now few comments for your improvements: 1. Travel Triangle kept on sending auto mails and no useful help was available from them. 2.Agent (Ms. Neha of Craft Holidays) was responsive and good. 3.Package details should have been more clear- for ex
    ample description like "as per Hotel Policy" makes it vague. It is always better to make it very clear about what those policies are at the time of final quotation itself.

    Tanmay's 4 days trip to Mauritius

    Mauritius was a most awaited trip for us and Travel Triangle, Craft Holidays really made sure a smooth arrangement. Satinder Kaur really helped us customize and plan the trip as per our interest. She provided us with sufficient and wonderful options of hotels for stay along with complete itinerary.
    The local sightseeing arrangements were also perfect and there were no hassles in coordinating with cab or hotel in Mauritius. The only feedback I have is for the Hotel which had limited veg options in meals. Overall a memorable trip and a big thanks to Craft Holiday (Satinder Kaur) for their assistance.

    Ashish's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    The last 2 days itinerary was clubbed saying it won’t take much time. However, that caused us miss 1-2 places to visit as they were closed by the time we reached there. Overall it was okay but itineraries should not be clubbed if you aren’t sure if they can be covered in a day or not.
