7 - 18  OCTOBER 2018

Come to La Reunion for one of the Indian Ocean’s last great island adventures…

Emerald forests, tumbling waterfalls, awesome mountainscapes, sprinkling of white and black sand beaches, clear clear water, architectural treasures and oh so French!!! My Francophile brother, who imports fine French wines (yes…someone has to do it) loves going there for the French atmosphere on an exotic island.  Great hiking and the world’s most accessible active volcanoes.

Join Landscape Designer Fiona Brockhoff and myself on this adventure run by World Expeditions with one of their excellent expert local guides. Having walked with them in Nepal and Peru (and soon the Larapinta) I can vouch for the excellence of their guides and organisation. They really respect the local culture, which at La Reunion is a mix of Creole, African, Indian, Chinese, and many many French.

La Reunion Island is a French overseas island in the Indian Ocean , 700 km east of Madagascar and 200 km southwest of Mauritius.

Some say La Reunion  is the Nepal of the Tropics.

Known for its coral reefs, beaches, volcanic rain forested interior and French culture, it is a great place for walking, swimming and snorkelling, all of which we will be doing, as well as exploring the native flora, landscape, volcanos and gardens.

We finish our adventure at the most luxurious of resorts on the island – Lux at St Gilles and then can either fly straight back to Perth and home (via Mauritius) or choose to spend some time in the nearby Seychelles (or Mauritius)  before returning home…

Have a look at the attached flyer and email if interested….if I am in Australia I will phone back otherwise will email. Or Phone Fiona or World Expeditions.

We were planning on taking a group of interested people to Madagascar to look at the fantastic boab trees and other endemic plants, the stunning landscape and soak up and explore the atmosphere of this exciting locale. This has been put on the back burner now due to health issues there.

There are some boabs (not endemic) on La Reunion but the magnificent specimens on the tours page is from Madagascar where we still hope to visit as soon as the health scare passes....

This is an at cost venture – Fiona and I are doing this for the pure fun of it.
