Raj Adventures

Reviewed By KathyMare - Cape Town Central, South Africa

Firstly, what an experience. The Waterfalls are just jaw-dropping. The views of endless thick tropical forest were amazing, the Waterfalls were spectacular and a memory that will be etched in my memory for a lifetime.
Secondly, arguably the most impressive aspect of the experience was the service of Raj Adventures, in particular Mervin & Shola. They were straight forward and honest. They told us the exact weather conditions we would most likely experience, which they could easily lie and entice us foreigners (who know no better) into spending our money.
Another stand out moment was when I paid. With little knowledge of the local currency, I mistakenly paid a bit extra and for the full day hike (we did the half day hike), Shola immediately gave us the back the money I mistakenly paid.
oh and how could I even dare forget...
THE SAMOOSA'S, incredible.

Mauri Transfers were a pleasure to deal with from the on-set from swift booking to the manager always available on phone when needed, also accommodating last minute changes. We were upgraded to a people carrier which really helped with luggage and a toddler in tow. The review would be 4.5 stars, half a point less as one occasion the driver was 20 minutes late due to traffic. Overall very good value for money when compared to hotel transfers. Would recommend!

Safari Adventures Lion Encounter

Reviewed By Laura O

This was a stunning experience of which we thoroughly enjoyed and will never forget. The park itself was great with lots to do. We had booked tickets online for the previous day, but we felt unwell, we contacted the park and they were more than happy to amend our visiting day at no extra charge.
When it came to the walk with the lions experience there were a few sets of couples, and a large group that came with a lot of large video equipment/tripods/video stabilising kit, when asked by our guide they elaborated that they were recording for Chinese Television. (Seriously, they had cue cards and everything ). Obviously this was very off putting for the rest of us who wanted to experience the lions up close and not looking through the obligatory 21st-century lens!
The guide instructed all of us that bags and big equipment will be left behind, I was more than happy to have my rucksack locked away, but more happy that this larger group were only allowed to take a GoPro, and one smaller video recorder, the rest of us had phones and cameras.
Once walking with the lions the larger group, inevitably, became a hinderance. Constantly trying to be the closest, and at the front. However, although annoying, I felt this was not detrimental to our experience as the guides did a fantastic job of giving everyone a fair chance of walking along side the two 5 Years old female lions and opportunities to stroke them. They were both lively, and to be honest not interested in us in the slightest, it was fabulous to see them playing and chasing one another around the wooded area we were in. It felt so natural and relaxed.
At the end of the experience you will have all your own personal photos taken while on the walk, then the option of buying the professional ones. Worth the money as you get all the photos and videos from the entire walk, including those of our new tv star friends , but more importantly for me, this price also included photos from going inside the cub enclosure afterwards, at no extra cost. So I also got to spend 15 minutes playing with the three 8 month old white lions. Amazing!!! They, obviously because of their age, were much more boisterous and unpredictable, highly recommended.

Had a pleasant round of golf here in August 2017. The course is average difficulty which is fine for me as a mid teens handicapper but might be a little easy for a low handicapper.
The course if beautifully looked after and have a number of holes with stunning views of the local Mountains and verdant scenery.
From some of the holes the views from the tee are well worth a snap or two and this could slow down play in the high season. On my day though the course was quiet so no issues there.
On a few holes there are monkeys around so remember to take the advice to put everything (not only valuable) into the golf bags.
Like other courses on Mauritius iff you go off line then the think vegetation is likely to cause your ball to vanish so bring a few with you and play provisionals for those wayward tee shots.
Also it's well worth getting the course guide and looking closely before teeing off. There are some very cunningly placed hazards that will often trap those that just glance at the hole from the tee and bash a ball down.
My only gripe with the course is that it's not such good value. I was at the hotel for only one night so got a discounted deal rather than a free one but beware that published prices include nothing so the race rate of MUR 4400 doesn't include the cart (I think around MUR 1400) and doesn't include range balls which are a few MUR per bucket. Also there are no towels on the cart. This was an issue for me as I played the day after heavy rains so the course was muddy and there was plenty of ball and club washing to do.
On balance though a course that was fun and just like others on the island, with some views that will linger in the memory for some time.

I’ve used this company twice so far, from the airport and the tour of the south. I also have my return airport trip booked. The firm is very easy to communicate with via What’s App and they send email confirmation straight away. The drivers arrive promptly and are polite, well spoken, informative and friendly. Nishal was a hard working local, he told us lots about the history of Mauritius. Abu was the other driver I think, he was relaxed, good to talk to and also informative. A great firm that I would definitely recommend.
