“This interesting UNESCO World Heritage site and national monument is the last remaining immigrant depot in Mauritius, created once slavery was abolished in the second half of the nineteenth century. Mauritius was the first of the British colonies to receive contracted, or indentured labourers, and was technically the “guinea pig” for this idea (or what was known as the ‘Great Experiment)’. The British wanted to show that this system was far superior to slave labour, and once they felt they had proved this, it was adopted in French, Dutch and Spanish colonies the world over. ”

Most were coastal forts. They stand up to 40 feet high and typically had a garrison of one officer and 15–25 men”

“The star of the show here is without any doubt the crocodile, but you will also see other creatures including giant bats, giant turtles, monkeys and a huge insect collection. While having a walk through the jungle observing the flora and fauna, you will learn more about the endangered species endemic to Mauritius. Its insectarium is one of the world’s largest private collections of butterfly and other insects. And those beautiful creatures are a feast to the eyes. The restaurant of the park even proposes Crocodile Curry on its menu. ”

“Who would expect to see a Martello Tower alongside our tropical beach? The mighty fortress stands guard at La Preneuse on the South West coast of Mauritius. Her cannon overlooks our gentle turquoise lagoon. A hidden gem.”
