Fly like a bird in the sky. It is a pure magical moment to take off from the sugar fields of Mauritius overlooking the lagoons and reefs stretching into the India Ocean. Trust me before flying everyone is so scared that they don’t want to do it, but after landing the first words are let’s do this again.
Walk with Lions

The pure thrill and excitement of being airborne has made this a very popular activity. One can choose the option of “touch and go” where you can take a plunge in the water before going up again.
This activity offers the people to fly over trees and river through zip line cables. Zip-line involves trekking, flying like a bird from the tree tops. The longest zip-line is of 250 meters. Glide over the rivers, forests, sugarcane fields and numerous waterfalls.
Underwater Sea Walk
This is one of the most exciting activities which non-divers can also enjoy. Witness the vast marine life of the Indian Ocean, flora and fauna and enormous variety of fishes. Experience the world of ocean which is far more beautiful than ones imagination.
Mauritius has one of the best coral reefs in the world, making it the best place to snorkel. This activity does not require swimming; all you need is a mask and flippers. When snorkeling look for angel fish, damselfish, parrotfish, wrasse, clownfish and other huge variety of creatures, plus various types of habitat such as mangroves, algae gardens, sea grasses and corals.
Keep all your worries away, paddle through the mangroves, witness the vast India Ocean, and immerse in the tranquility of the nature. It is a great activity to enjoy with family and friends.
