Unleash the eco-adventurer in you!

You don’t have to be an outdoor adventurer to find something you like at Frederica Nature Reserve. Let yourself be spoilt for choice with a variety of pursuits to choose from in a stunning and diverse scenery.

This wildlife sanctuary where history meets nature in the preserved South-West of Mauritius was named after the historic Frederica sugar estate founded in the 19th century, whose chimney still towers over the landscape.

Frederica is your chance to get closer to nature in more ways than one by exploring this place blessed with incredibly rich biodiversity, teeming with rare endemic plant and animal species. Cross rivers, streams, dams and enjoy the cool rush of L’Exemple waterfall.

The rolling landscape of the reserve is wonderful for a quad ride. To keep it safe and enjoyable for all, a ‘tester’ session with an experienced guide will prepare you for the thrill and wonder that await you.

For a more laid-back adventure, you may opt for a four-wheel-drive tour. The banks of Jacotet River additionally provide wonderful spots for a romantic picnic lunch in the cool tranquillity of a tropical river.

The more adventurous ones who want to get down to earth and experience nature in its simplest form can also set out for a trek with the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation’s guides, who know the nature reserve inside out.

A visit to Frederica is just not your ordinary nature and wildlife experience!
