This outing in one of the greatest hunting grounds of Mauritius, “Le Domaine de Chasse de Yemen”, is an invitation to contemplate the exuberant nature.
The Trois Mamelles and the Rempart mountain ranges will keep an eye on you all along the journey which will prove to be a memorable intrursion into the Mauritian fauna. Almost one thousand stags, hinds and fawns, curious although wild, will also observe you pedalling on their territory. You will also meet some guinea fowls, peacocks and “cochons marrons”, Mauritian wild boars, all along the seven kilometres of trail within this superb hunting ground not opened to the general public.
Thanks to our electric bikes this trip, accessible to all, adults as well as kids will require a minimum effort from your part thus enabling you to admire the beautiful panorama at your ease.
