Learn about flower elixir making and the distillation of rare plants and flowers. During this day trip, we will meet the owner of a bio plantation, who also operates the only working still in Mauritius. This is quite a sight to see, especially during production of the rare and precious oils; which we later have a chance of sampling, while enjoying a refreshing drink. After a tour of the premises, we visit the shop for a presentation of locally made flower elixirs. We then have ample opportunity to buy the handmade souvenirs, oils and elixirs produced on site. After lunch at Domaine de l’Etoile, a stroll through nature and a refreshing bath in the nearby Pellegrin River mark the end of this excursion.
The Green Side is for visitors who want to experience Mauritius far beyond the beaten track. By stepping out of your tropical holiday and into the nature environment of the hinterland, you will experience a new dimension of holiday making. We take you to see, feel, smell and enjoy the real Mauritius Nature Paradise, the one you always knew existed but did not know how to reach.
TRIO Benefit: A part of your fee goes into the planting and maintenance of endangered species around the outskirts of the plantation, in order to guarantee their survival.
