The ride begins at the “Place du Moulin” in Bel Ombre, where we head towards La Baie de Jakotet and then in the direction of the village of Rivière des Galets. Thereafter, we discover the Batelage of Grand River South-East, the former harbour of
Souillac. We also visit one of the oldest churches in Mauritius, the church of Saint-Jacques. We then make a stop at the charming Telfair Gardens, the colonial judiciary and the former train station.
From the top of the Gris-Gris cliffs at “La Nef”, former house of the poet, R. E. Hart, we get to enjoy the spectacular view that the poet so loved before visiting “La Roche Qui Pleure” (The Weeping Rock). Upon the return journey, we get to taste some delicious local meals thanks to the generous and dynamic Mrs Mala; an unforgettable moment of generosity and local hospitality. We then hit the road again, and our next stop is St Felix, where we enjoy a snack and head to the Riambel public beach and continue our journey to the Bel Ombre Sugar Estate which marks the end of our ride.
N.B. Throughout the ride, your guide will stop at various strategic sites so as to share the history and tales of the area, to give the opportunity for a few snapshots or to simply relax a little.
