Making Friends With 100-Year Old Tortoises
Mauritius is host to fascinating birds and animals. Children will enjoy outings where they can see, touch and learn about the wide variety of creatures, both big and small. Give them stories to tell their classmates back home by introducing them to giant tortoises that have lived for 100 years! These massive centenarians are a sight to behold. Meet the Mauritian Kestrel or the rare Pink Pigeon, and the bright-hued Macaws… But beware… there are also 1,500 Nile crocodiles around! Take a picture of a baby crocodile in the palm of your hand, a unique souvenir!
