Africa + Indian Ocean
A luscious island escape
Mauritius is the ultimate lush, tropical island escape. Its pristine beaches of pale-blonde sand, protected by coral reefs and set against a mystical backdrop of jungly volcanic peaks, make it a classic beach destination in its own right, but it can also serve as the perfect post-safari-relaxation add-on.
The Mauritian hotels have mastered the art of first class service (not to mention virtually every form of watersport known to man), but it’s vital to match your tastes or your reason for travelling to the right resort. Our Destination Experts have explored every hotel and have invaluable advice and insights into which will be exactly right for you.

We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.

Stories from Mauritius
"We spent three weeks in Mauritius for our honeymoon and could not have wished for a better destination. Claire did a fantastic job organising a brilliant itinerary, ensuring the perfect combination of hotels and activities during our stay."
"Our first stop was the Hotel 20 Degrés Sud, a fabulous hotel with an intimate, colonial feel and a relaxed vibe with a beautiful pool area. The afternoon tea everyday was a particular treat. The highlight has to be our boat trip to Governors Island – a stunning deserted island with the most incredibly blue sea. The catamaran sail to and from the island was magical, with dolphins and whales aplenty."
The second half of our honeymoon was located in the south of the island at the Shanti Maurice resort. This was a complete contrast to the north of the island and we especially enjoyed the opportunity to have a private villa and pool. The food was spectacular and the traditional Mauritian night, enjoying local dancing and food around a bonfire on the beach with crashing waves in the background, was a memorable evening. We really enjoyed our time on this beautiful island and would love to return.
