MAURITIUS

Mauritius is one of the larger islands along the Indian Ocean, easily accessible by a short flight from Johannesburg, South Africa. The island first visited by the Arabs in 975, was occupied by the Dutch, in the late 16th century and taken over by the French in 1715. It was handed over during the Napoleon wars, to Britain in 1810, until its decolonization in 1968. Indian laborers brought by the British remained and built a life in Mauritius and today contribute to the economy, politics and culture of the Island.

Mauritius is known for its varied flora and fauna, with many species endemic to the island. The island is surrounded by more than 150 km (100 mi) of white sandy beaches, and the lagoons are protected from the open sea by the world’s third-largest coral reef. The island, part of the Mascarene Islands, was created by volcanic activity some 8 million years ago. The islands emerged as a result of gigantic underwater volcanic eruptions that happened thousands of kilometers to the east of the continental block made up of Africa and Madagascar.

The environment in Mauritius is typically tropical in the coastal regions with forests in the mountainous areas and enjoys a moderate climate with clear warm seawaters, beaches and is complemented by a multi-ethnic and cultural population.
