Mauritius tours are generally very safe, especially in comparison to other African countries. Nevertheless, it is best to follow some basic safety regulations for a stress-free Mauritius vacation.
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.
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 flipflops.
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.
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.
