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.

    Manoj's 5 days trip to Mauritius

    The overall experience was OK, not so great. Room preparation for the honeymoon was not as expected completely below par. Further, my travel bookings were complete as per the local vendor linked completely differently from the travel agent mentioned in the itinerary. He took us for his designated location for water sports, shopping, etc. and not any place if we want to. Timing for different locations was very bad, beaches did not have time for more than 1 hour however it was the main thing in our itinerary.

    Anurag Jain

    Delhi

    Anurag's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    Overall experience of the trip was quite good, amidst the fear of corona everywhere, We were still able to enjoy our trip in Mauritius as it is the least affected country. This was our honeymoon trip and so we were very excited. With honeymoon-couples all over the trip, the stay at Hotel Intercontinental was phenomenal. With four different restaurants, serving various categories of food like Asian, Indian, Mediterranian etc. It was a good experience. The travel guides serving and guiding us while travelling within Mauritius (On SIT basis) were quite polite and helpful. We were welcomed at the hotel and was provided with an ocean facing room and a sparkling wine(Local made) to add glitters to the experience. Though, With the price, I paid for this trip, I would rate the overall experience of the booking, co-ordination and stay as 3.8/5. The reason of my rating is due to the below factors: Three major issues, I want to highlight are 1. Though, we were told by our travel partner(Travel-Triangle/aaojao.com) that we'll be given a welcome Polo-Tshirts but the same was NOT provided as there were no stock of the same in the hotel. 2. Room Decoration : Hotel room was not at all decorated as expected. Only few rose petals were put on the bed with two towels folded in the ♥ form. 3. Drinking Water: One of the most essentials, while travelling is the drinking water. At the hotel, it became a massive surprise for us, when we were told to buy expensive water bottles while at lunch/Dinner. Also, Complimentary water bottles were'nt provided on time in our rooms for first two days later they started providing two times a day and on-time. Please Note: At Intercontinental, as per the policy of the hotel, It should provide 2-3 water bottle - two times a day. I may recommend others for this trip provided, all get what is promised and No last-minute surprises for water atleast!! The Under water sea walk and the sea beach at hotel!!

    The arrangements were good. Our trip went well. It was a couple trip to Mauritius and it went almost the way we expected. It's just that it was very tiring waiting on airport on the layover of flights.

    Radhika's 6 days trip to Mauritius

    Hotel was not as per expected standards. Property was okay, rooms were really small. Service and food quality was really poor and would not recommend anyone to opt for Anelia. Better options were found to be available at comparable prices later.
