Port Louis is the capitol blending foreign influences offering such sites as the Champs de Mars Horsetrack and the 18th Century Pamplemousse Botanical Garden. Mauritius is known for it’s beautiful beaches, lagoons and reefs. The mountainous interior encompasses the Black River Gorges National Park with rain forests, waterfalls, hiking trails and native fauna such as the Flying Fox, the Pink Pigeon (approximately 12 birds existed in 1986; today due to conservation efforts approximately 470 birds exist) and the Kestrel; once regarded as the world’s rarest bird.
