Domaine de l'Etoile opened its doors in 2002 and is now the largest private estate in Mauritius and is definitely the most attractive! This natural park is a true paradise of nature. It is possible to admire many different panoramas offering breathtaking views. From lush valleys to river successions, through stretches of native forests and the Moka mountain range. Amazing contrasts not to be missed! From the heights, you will be able to have an overview of the Mauritian coast and its wildlands. A real show for the eyes! 
 
However, the site is not only appreciated for the tranquillity and bewitching beauty of the area but also for its exceptional creatures living in total freedom in the area. If you are lucky and have a sharp eye, you will be able to observe the Java deer or monkeys in their daily lives. Many endemic birds have also taken up residence in the area, such as pigeons, straw, kestrels and the Mauritian cardinal. These different species live in harmony on the park's 1,200 hectares, composed of more than 80 different species of trees and plants. It is an opportunity to closely observe the ancestral ebony trees, vanilla and coffee that flourish at Domaine de l'Etoile. A unique excursion that is one of the most fascinating in Mauritius.
