Outdoor activities are very popular in Mauritius and the number of leisure places has known an increase. Quad biking, horse riding, via Ferrata, zip-lining, and other famous activities are provided by few companies for you to have fun. Other entertainments such as horse racing or water park are nice places to bring your relatives and friends to spend a wonderful time.
Famous Leisure & Attraction Places To Go
Thrill and adrenaline adventures entertain people. The zip-line activity is one of the most chosen by adrenaline junkies. But be careful, always ask the related service provider if proper maintenance has been made on the equipment. This is because there were accidents in the past, resulting in the death of people due to defective equipment. Quad-biking is another famous activity. You do not need a particular license for that, just a basic driving skill is enough, but still, it is a dangerous sport as most of these quad biking tracks are rocky and muddy. Those who love mountain climbing can participate in Ferrata activities. Let's get directly into the famous places for these entertainments.
