Having spent one month spilt almost equally between the two Mauritius islands; Mauritius and its little sister Rodrigues I had the chance to see and take part in most of the islands ecotourism activities. Each island has activities to offer, as well as lots of nature to see and enjoy. There are surprisingly lots of differences in the way that tourism has been and is being managed on the two islands.
This week we discovered all the wildlife of the Rodriguez Island, including the local Spiders that are as big as my hand. We met some locals and a few French people that have been living here for a long time. We hiked along the beautiful untouched natural trails of the country, finding sheep on the beach and looking for the great tasking baby octopus.
