Perth-based Consultant Vanessa Explores Mauritius

7 August 2013

Vanessa Benino, a consultant based at the Gateways Store in Perth who celebrated her five year anniversary with Flight Centre this week, recently flew to Mauritius for a fantastic seven-day break.

"I've always wanted to go to Mauritius to admire the beautiful scenery and to explore the French influence on the island. My expectations were definitely exceeded once I arrived. I stayed at four Beachcomber properties around the island and they were just amazing. A highlight for me was the Walk with Lions experience but it also great to meet the local people in the markets who were so friendly. The food was just divine - especially the fresh seafood. I'd go back in a heartbeat."

Private Beach at the Royal Palm, Grand Baie

"This resort has its own private beach for the exclusive use of the guests. I couldn't help but lying on the sun lounges and enjoying a cocktail as I looked out to the beautiful scenery."

The Beach at the Trou aux Biches Resort

"This resort is located on the northwest coast of Mauritius. The whole island is just so beautiful."

Fresh Fruit Juice, Port Louis

"This fruit juice stand in the country's capital reminded me a bit of Europe. I thought it was just awesome - fruit juice squeezed fresh."

Chamarel Falls

"I took a day trip to the Chamarel region. These Falls are one of the highlights of the trip. Others on the tour hiked up to a higher vantage point but I was content from this angle."

Seven Coloured Earth

"Also on the tour, they took us to the Seven Coloured Earth, which actually has seven distinct colours - red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow. The individual colours are created by the decomposition of volcanic rock. "

Walk With Lions Tour

"The Walk With Lions tour at Casela Nature and Leisure Park was just incredible. We walked for half-an-hour through the jungle with the lions. You can't walk in front in them and you must keep your distance because they live as wild animals. I felt safe because you are accompanied by a professional guide at all times."

Casela Nature Park

"At the Casela Nature Park you can also admire cheetahs and tigers. "
