Discover Pamplemousses Garden Mauritius

These are undoubtedly some of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. Situated in the north of the island, in the small village of Pamplemousses, the gardens were created at the orders of Pierre Poivre in the 17th Century and boast a selection of the most beautiful tropical plants picked by the enlightened and passionate botanist of Louis XV. These include Bottle palms, lotuses, all kinds of ficus and of course giant Victoria water lilies, named after the extremely well-known Queen Victoria of England, all thriving in the gardens' magnificent ponds which simply ooze serenity.
