I was born and raised in Mauritius, since an early age I have been involved in tourism. Through the years I’ve seen Mauritius grow as a world-renowned destination for our beautiful sea side resorts and pristine beaches and that is all, pretty much.

As a local, I knew there was more Mauritius could offer to a traveller. I wanted to introduce Mauritius to visitors as a local friend would do, the authentic way so that they too could see all the beauty in nature, traditions and landscapes that only locals know.
