What to expect

Mahebourg Mauritius Overview

Discover the artistry of Takamaka Wine at Mahebourg Mauritius, where the tasty wine is made from the purest lychees and not grapes. Immerse yourself in the rich cultural tapestry at Cassava, delving into local traditions and culinary wonders. Explore the vibrant Jardin De Beau Vallon, a botanical haven teeming with exotic flora. Witness the ecological marvel of Ile aux Aigrettes at Mahebourg Mauritius, a sanctuary for endangered species. Visit the bustling Mahebourg Market, where the lively atmosphere and diverse stalls showcase the heart and soul of Mauritius.

Each stop promises an enriching journey, blending nature, culture, and the vibrant spirit of this island paradise.The inception of Takamaka Boutique Winery arose from the resolute commitment of a fervent vintner, Alexander Oxenham. As the sole oenologist on the island, he willingly embraced the task of crafting wine from lychees. Motivated by Mauritius’s longstanding custom of concocting alcoholic beverages from its indigenous tropical fruits, Alexander Oxenham aimed to redefine the art of winemaking.

Through audacity, technical expertise, and a generous dose of enjoyment, he established the sole winery in Mahebourg Mauritius exclusively dedicated to lychee wine production. Mr. Alexander takes pride in his role as a vintner, boasting a collection of locally crafted wines brimming with distinctive character. At Takamaka, lychee wine is meticulously created from the pulp of handpicked, peeled, and deseeded fruits, undergoing fermentation for up to three weeks.

The Cassava Introduced to Mahebourg Mauritius by Mahé de Labourdonnais in 1735, and locally known as Manioc, cassava initially served as cattle and slave sustenance. However, during World War I, it gained popularity amid shortages of staples like wheat flour. The cassava biscuit factory, a familial venture since 1870, has preserved its originality in Mahebourg Mauritius. This enduring enterprise originated the renowned and widely enjoyed manioc biscuit, maintaining traditions from its inception.

 

Ile Aux Aigrettes, declared a Nature Reserve in 1965 in Mahebourg Mauritius, stands as a globally significant conservation site. Its name originates from a colony of graceful white fishing birds known as Egrets, which inhabited the island in the 1600s. This island hosts unique plant species that are exclusive to Ile Aux Aigrettes, representing the final remnants of a coastal forest that once enveloped a significant part of Mauritius.

Notably, 18 Mauritian plant species found on the island are classified as endangered or very rare. At Mauritius Holidays, we ensure your trip is worth the time, entertainment, and price.
