There is far more than meets the eye when it comes to Mau­ri­tius’ of­fer­ings to the ea­ger busi­ness trav­eller. Of course there is the ex­ten­sive beauty seen wher­ever you look; but delve be­neath the sur­face and you’ll find a plethora of in­trigu­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to take up your spare time.

Per­haps of­fer­ing up the most re­lax­ing busi­ness trip you can find, Mau­ri­tius’ beaches are renowned for the pierc­ing blues which will un­doubt­edly leave you speech­less. How­ever, look just be­yond and you will dis­cover the is­lands wildlife which will cap­ture your imag­i­na­tion and leave you want­ing more time to ex­plore.

Lo­cated just east of Mada­gas­car, Mau­ri­tius only has two sea­sons for you to con­sider when trav­el­ling - sum­mer and win­ter - with very lit­tle change to dif­fer­en­ti­ate the two; tak­ing into ac­count that dur­ing your busi­ness hours, the cen­tral plateau will be cooler than time spent on the more coastal ar­eas.

As a re­sult, when you make your way down to the shores of this beau­ti­ful is­land, you will be treated to two of the loveli­est birds in the In­dian Ocean - the pink pi­geon and Mauritian kestrel.

Of course it is not just the nat­u­ral sights you should rel­ish in dur­ing your time there, with the food on of­fer stand­ing out as an ex­pe­ri­ence in it­self. Mau­ri­tius is gain­ing a long list of ac­co­lades for its ex­cel­lence in food and fine-din­ing of­fer­ings, pro­vid­ing some­thing to suit the tastes of ev­ery­one; it is most def­i­nitely an ex­pe­ri­ence not to be missed.
