Mauritius holiday packages

Labelled by Mark Twain as “heaven on earth,” Mauritius holidays live up to the hype: this is where luxury-seekers, honeymooners and families on holiday find their place in the sun. A luminous island that promises escapism and breakaway fun, holiday in Mauritius to discover tropicana romance, barefoot luxury and castaway adventure. Mauritius is a popular holiday destination for South Africans. It is an island nation located in the Indian Ocean, to the right of Madagascar, and is about 1500 miles from Africa. The island has a dreamy beauty of volcanic mountain peaks, tropical shrubs, coral reefs, flares of colours from bougainvillaea, poinsettias, azaleas, jacarandas and hibiscus and 58 of the whitest, cleanest beaches in the world.

Still searching for your ideal 2024 island getaway? Take a look at our Seychelles holiday packages, Maldives holiday packages, and Zanzibar holiday packages. There's so much to love about a Beach Break or Honeymoon Package, or try a Mauritius All-Inclusive break for a no-fuss, all relax trip to remember. We are also here to help you with your flight to Mauritius. Search our affordable Mauritius flights.
