La Vanille Nature Park
Visiting La Vanille Nature Park was without any doubt one of my favorite experiences during our trip to Mauritius! We had such a great day, it was educatrional, the staff was Amazing both with the animals and with us as visitors.
From the bottom of my heart I recommend you to visut this park <3
I recommend you to get a ticket that let you go and feed the younger turtoises in the park. It was a very special moment and you got to have them all for yourself for a while. Besides meeting all the turtoises and getting to feed them we got to see a lot of other animals and I even got to feed some bats. I had never seen bats up Close like that Before but they where really cool :)
One more thing I recommend you to try during your visit is to try Crocodile meat in their resaturant. I didn´t know what to expect but it was really good, kind of like chicken.
Some info about the park
