Mauritius

Lying off the east coast of Africa, out in the Indian Ocean in peaceful seclusion, the idyllic island of Mauritius is surrounded by coral reefs and white sandy beaches, lapped by warm and gentle waters.

Mauritius is only a 4 hour flight from South Africa. The two countries are a fabulous combination at an unbeatable price!

We have put together a selection of packages combining Johannesburg or Cape Town and Mauritius with ‘stop-in-your-tracks’ prices!

These are mere suggestions – one can easily extend in South Africa or Mauritius. Perhaps spend two nights at one of South Africa’s ‘Big Five’ destinations, before heading off to Cape Town, and then end your holiday with a few days in paradise, Mauritian-style.

Mauritius is a true island resort getaway – the hotels are world-class and there is a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, with loads of fun entertainment in the evenings, and excellent watersports facilities, all packaged-up beautifully with a friendly Mauritian, laid-back vibe.

Mauritius is a wonderful destination for families - kids can knock themselves out at the fun clubs and with the myriad of sporting facilities available to entertain them, parents will have some time to unwind and soak-up the sun.
