Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, maybe Victoria Fall - 20 days

Jump to last reply

I need help. I'll have between 14 and 21 days coming in February, and friends who have a great house in Mauritius, and I have been welcomed to come visit, but, I'm a strong believer you can't stay with anyone for more than 3 or 4 days without giving them a break. So, I want to use Mauritius as my home base, and then see some of the areas around on my own. I plan to fly over via Paris for a layover with friends there, but, I thought I could leave Mauritius and go to Africa, then fly back to the States from Africa. Just started checking everything out. Originally I was thinking of only spending 3 days in Madagascar, doesn't seem anywhere near enough. Should I focus on Madagascar, and drop Africa from this trip? Reunion seems so close, it seems silly not to go, but, the French have always said it's a bit dirty and not that great and between the two Mauritius is the real treat.
Right now I was thinking -
Mauritius 4 days
Reunion 2 days, 1 night
Mauritius 3 days
Madagascar 3 days
Mauritius 2 days
South Africa 2 days
I don't want to short change a location, and I don't want to go just to say I went. But, the frequent stays in Mauritius let me keep costs lowered, and see old friend. Any advice people have to give, I would really appreciate.
