Safety tips for your Mauritius tours

Beware of pickpockets

Mauritius is a developing economy and pick pocketing and petty crime are rather common everywhere. As with anywhere else in the world, the usual safety rules apply: don’t carry expensive items with you and don’t display your valuable goods, such as watches and jewelry, while traveling. Be careful in markets and other crowded areas.

Be careful while swimming, snorkeling and diving

The currents can change frequently and without any warning. It is best to bathe under supervision, which applies to snorkeling and diving as well. Since urchins and other such dangerous animals may be lurking underwater, we recommend that you wear flip flops.

Dress appropriately while visiting religious sites

If you wish to visit a religious site, please dress appropriately with your knees and shoulders covered. If you are unsure about what to wear, your local guide or personal Trip Coordinator will be happy to advise you.

Avoid specific neighborhoods and beaches at night

Lonely, deserted beaches and neighborhoods are best avoided at night. Avoid visiting the poorer residential areas, or visit only in the company of your local guide.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.

This was my first adventure as a solo traveler. But while I may have traveled on my own, I was never alone. I was well taken care of by a superb team of planners, trip coordinators, guides and drivers.
