What to Pack When Hiking in Mauritius
Since much of the island is covered in lush vegetation, it’s important to pack light but sturdy footwear that will protect your feet from sharp rocks and branches. Insect repellent is also a must as there are mosquitoes present in some areas (although they are not harmful). And finally, be sure to bring plenty of water with you as there are often no sources of potable water along the trail. With these essentials packed in your daypack, you’ll be ready to hit the trails and explore all that Mauritius has to offer!
