Overview

The mountainous topography of Heritage Nature Reserve (ex Frederica Nature Reserve) offers breath taking views, vast plains where stags parade majestically, impressive waterfalls and intact natural beauty. The scenery is overwhelming and can be discovered through several activities: quad biking, buggy, safari 4x4 and trekking. We have two sessions per day: Morning 9h00 Afternoon 13h00

We spent two hours quad biking through the reserve and it was amazing. The views are stunning, and the trip to the waterfall simply wonderful. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgable. Our best day in Mauritius by a mile.

Our expectations were modest when we opted to include quad biking as part of our itinerary. This has to be one of the most scenic quad biking tour we have done. You are effectively in a huge nature reserve and sugar cane farm. The route...More
