Fodor's Review

Stretched over endless acres with more than 800 varieties of plants, this botanical garden, settled in the heart of Pamplemousses, is a refreshing oasis for those wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of Port-Louis. It's particularly famed for its giant Victoria amazonica water lilies, whose gargantuan leaves can expand to three meters in diameter. One of the garden’s distinctive features is also the amazing Talipot—a plant that flowers only once every 30 to 100 years. Families and groups of tourists usually like to gather among the palm trees and have a picnic before paying a visit to the “Samadhi,” the tomb of the island’s first Prime minister, also known as the Father of the Nation.
