Talking about Pamplemousses Mauritius Botanical Garden history, the Garden is one of the oldest in the southern hemisphere. The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanic Garden traces its origins back to the French period. In 1736, Governor Mahé de Labourdonnais chose the present Main Gate in Pamplemousses Mauritius for his domain. In 1767, French Intendant Pierre Poivre introduced a variety of global vegetables, fruits, and flowers. 

Formerly known as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Pamplemousses Mauritius, it was renamed on September 18, 1988, in honor of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam, the first Prime Minister and later Governor General of Mauritius, on his 88th Birth Anniversary. 

In the heart of Beau Plan’s garden lies the enchanting Fangourin restaurant, nestled within the L’Aventure du Sucre. Picture this: century-old trees casting dappled shade, a charming veranda offering panoramic views of the central plateau’s majestic mountains…
