The only word used by my fellow interns to describe our road trip was simply amazing! There is no
other adjective that i can think of which portrays how amazing the trip was.
Thanks to our new friends from SYAH-Mauritius who acted as our guide for the day, we were
fortunate enough to appreciate the magnificent scenery and landscape of our neighbouring Small
Island Developing States (SIDS).
Our first stop was the Alexandra Falls located on the central plateau which as a matter of fact is part of the Black River Gorges that we visited right after. The view point was breathtaking and we quickly seized the opportunity to several pictures. To add on while enjoying the paysage we unexpectedly spotted an African toad who willingly posed for pictures!
The Black River Gorges National Park was our following stop. It was as if we were being compelled
out of the vehicle by two monkeys entertaining the other visitors. Similarly to the previous stop
the views were incredibly awesome.
Moreover we also visited the Mare aux vacoas ; the largest reservoir in Mauritius. An interesting fact is that the water is still being distributed to the people through pipes established since the British colony. For this reason Mauritians are quite reluctant to drink Tap water.
We viewed several other areas such as Ma condé another tourist attraction. Unfortunately it was
sad to see plastic bags, plastic bottles just to name a few floating on the surface of the water. This
increased my present concern regarding the issue.
Other than that the tour was an enjoyable and lively one. I look forward to our next adventure!
Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more soon
