Mauritius - a multicultural tropical island

1,000 km to the east of Madagascar is the island of Mauritius. The people of this sub-tropical island in the Indian Ocean are multicultural, multi-ethnic, multilingual and multireligious as a consequence of centuries of occupation, colonisation and immigration. Mauritius was also the only known home of the now extinct dodo, a flightless bird famous for its size and unfortunate fate after the arrival of the Europeans.

When To Visit Mauritius

The island boasts a tropical climate and is warm 12 months of the year. There are two seasons here; summer and winter with the peak tourist season being from September to November and March and May. January to March can be hot and humid and there is a likelihood of tropical cyclones during this period. The east coast can be very windy and the west coast is generally hotter. Being a multi-faith country, Mauritius observes a range of religious festivals. Cavadee, in January and February, is a Tamil celebration in honour of the god Muruga complete with processions, fire walking, body piercing and trances. Mauritius also celebrates the Chinese New Year, the date of which varies, Eid at the end of Ramadan, Diwali, the Hindu festival of light in November and every September there is a pilgrimage to Père Laval shrine in Port Louis, an event in which participants of all faiths take part.
