We offer public tours, so it is possible for others to book the same tour as your group.

If you are running a bit late, contact our tour coordinator (+230 5476 7204).

The tour will go ahead as planned, rain or shine. Dress according to the weather and bring an umbrella if forecasts suggest rain. See the next question for the weather conditions that do warrant a cancellation.
*Note that the listed reasons above do not represent an exhaustive list.
The island’s varied topography creates diverse microclimates across the different regions. Hence, the weather can vary significantly between regions and it can also be very unpredictable; from sunshine to downpour, then back to clear skies in just a matter of minutes.
