Tailored South West Mauritius tour overview

Note: Our South West Mauritius tour is exclusively bespoke so you can customize it according to your preferences, and explore other beautiful tourism locations in South West of Mauritius, and enjoy completely tailored tour. For more information, please contact us.

On our South West Mauritius tour, discover the artistry of Takamaka Wine, 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, 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 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. 

During this South West Mauritius excursion, experience the essence of sustainability at Rhumerie de Chamarel, where the focus is on crafting high-quality, eco-friendly agricultural rum. From cultivation to distillation, every step is meticulously executed to ensure top-notch rum production. Unlike traditional methods, the distillery prides itself on distilling fresh, fermented cane juice rather than molasses, resulting in unparalleled flavor.

Embracing the principles of sustainable development, Rhumerie de Chamarel implements eco-conscious practices at every turn. Waste is minimized through innovative recycling efforts, with bagasse converted into energy, industrial emissions filtered, and ashes used as fertilizers. Even the steam generated is repurposed for watering the gardens, showcasing a commitment to environmental stewardship.

Welcome to Restaurant L’Alchimiste in our exclusive South West Mauritius tour! Nestled amidst lush tropical flora, with breathtaking views of the plantations and mountains, you’ll savor a unique cuisine crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Delight your palate with exotic delicacies like palm heart, alongside dishes featuring deer and wild pig. Complement your meal with fine wines imported from France and beyond.

Whether you’re seeking a taste of adventure or simply craving exquisite flavors, Restaurant L’Alchimiste promises a dining experience that will leave you spellbound. At Mauritius Holidays, we ensure your trip to this South West Mauritius tour is worth the time, entertainment, and price. Want to know about more Mauritius travel packages?
