Great relaxing end to our visit to South Africa was a six day chill in Mauritius – another new country for me.
Our hotel – Sands Suites was situated on Flec en Flac (love saying that!) beach. Even when it rains it clears up very quickly so an easy place to just sit and watch the ocean.
We also took a walk through the forest along the coast to Tamarin Bay – very pretty.
A huge highlight for us was Walking with the Lions at Casela Park (thanks for the recommendation Lorna) and sanctuary. Luckily these animals are well fed (!) and you get an hour walking and interacting with them. Very cool – once I stopped being scared!! We spent our hour with two white lionesses. Magic.
As we walked around the park we encountered more lions on the safari drive.
And very excitingly we also got up close and personal with the white and golden tigers. They are BIG. Apparently they tried to do visitor interactions with them way back when it they tended to attack for the fun of it – so as that was not very good for business they stopped it.
The ocean does t just look good during the day- it also produces a lot of sunsets like these.
And finally I had to say bye to Trudy and Alan – as they headed off back to the UK while I am off to another beachy spot.
