Very large garden. Visited as part of a cruise shore excursion, so unfortunately given a very rushed tour of some of the garden highlights. Would have liked to have spent more time there. Stand out display are the giant water lillies.

When you are in the north, you should go and visit with a guide this parc. The variety of flowers and trees is amazing. The guide for me is mandatory, otherwise you miss 90% of the parc, without knowing what kind a flower you see,...More

Had high expectations of beautiful gardens & frankly the maintenance had been let go. We’ve seen better gardens/ vegetation in other areas of Mauritius. Only highlight was the giant water lillies. A note on tours - Wanted a guided tour but the guide made various...More

It’s a beautiful garden with the gigantic lily leaves being their centre of attraction. It’s a nice walk around the entire garden. Do carry a stroller for toddlers as it’s a long walk around but they’ll love the giant tortoises and the ducks in the...More

The garden is large and beautiful with old and big trees, water, etc. You can see many sort of trees from the indian ocean region, some of them being rare. However it is recommanded to take a guide with you (cheap) to benefit from 100%...More

Beautiful gardens and a very entertaining guide. Definitely worth spending some time here. Our guide was very funny, and could provide information in countless languages. The only negative for us was the enclosure where the tortoises are kept, which was a bit zoo-like. You could...More

We enjoyed a tour of the gardens and the knowledge and humour of our guide Sanjay made the trip all the more enjoyable. Entrance fee was 200 rupees around £5 and the charge for a guide 50 rupees (just over a pound). There is a...More
