Activities / Wild South
Treat yourself to a tour of Mahe’s wild side, the untamed south of the island, with its rolling countryside, quaint hamlets and spectacular beaches. Your day starts in charming Victoria, on a visit to the bustling market, the ‘Little Ben’ Clock Tower, and the other fascinating nooks and crannies of one of world’s smallest capitals.
A scenic drive into cool mountains of Sans Soucis follows, offering unforgettable vistas of the ocean below en-route to the enchanted setting of ‘Mission Lodge’, site of an ancient school for slave children and now home to the songs of endemic birds. Seemingly suspended in the mountain mists is the tea plantation, which you will pass on your descent to the surreally beautiful west coast and the photo opportunity of your stay as the road meanders through picturesque villages on its way to Pineapple Studio – an Aladdin’s Cave of local arts & crafts.
This particular rainbow expedition ends at the spectacular Cap Lazare, amid the scented blossoms of Frangipani trees and the manicured gardens of a private estate where you will feast on a mouth-watering, feet-in-the-sand Creole buffet served right on the beachfront. After lunch, our guide will take you for a walk to explore this exceptional domain; enchanted nature trail and scenic panoramic views, large population of free roaming giant land tortoises, and endemic plants. The rest of the afternoon is yours to enjoy the wonders of Cap Lazare’s underwater world and its secluded small beach to unwind and relax.
