Ecotourism. Found in the south east of Mauritius, more precisely in the middle of the Midlands Dam and the Eau Bleue reservoir in the small village of Bananes, Domaine Lagrave is a 500 hectares haven comprising of vast spaces of almost virgin forests, the Lagrave mountain, flowing rivers, waterfalls and springs which easily get you out of the buildings and cities and take you back in time to the pristine Mauritius. Freely roaming around the park are deer, boars, monkeys, chirping birds flying overhead or eating in the trees much to the delight of nature lovers. The park has been conserved so as to give off the natural element to make it an ecotourism success as well as a relaxing and unforgettable one. All activities are thus centered on the green notion of preservation such that all vehicles are banned inside the park and rifle shooting is strictly prohibited. Activities include nature walks around the park or up to the Lagrave mountain at 638m altitude where panoramic views of the surroundings (south east of Mauritius, rivers, midlands dam) can be seen, bamboo raft construction, kayaking, fishing, camping, African archery, hikes, abseiling and visits of the lake.
