The Botanical Gardens

Botanical Gardens, Mauritius 

The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanic Garden (also known as Jardins de Pamplemousses or simply Pamplemousses) are known to naturalists throughout the world for their large collection of indigenous and exotic plants, including the giant Victoria Amazonica water lilies and many species of palm trees.

The 60-acre garden boasts 500 different species of plants, of which 80 are palms. Of particular interest are the giant water lilies, a spice garden and the Talipot Palms, said to flower every 60 years after which they die.

The deer and tortoises are sure to delight the youngsters, whilst an old French mansion, Château Mon Plaisir, and an old sugar mill conjure up pictures of Mauritius' rich historical past.
