The Vanilla Nature Park

A genuine Noah’s ark!  

The Vanilla Nature Park is a zoological park created in 1985, covering a surface of five hectares in the south of Mauritius close to the village of Rivière des Anguilles. While the main attraction orbits around the Nile crocodiles, the establishment also proposes encounters with a huge number of other animal species while on your stroll, be it on foot or on the back of a donkey, in the middle of a humid tropical forest full of trees, plants and endemic flowers.

The visitor will come across caimans, iguanas, cane toads, radiated tortoises of Madagascar, giant tortoises of Seychelles, freshwater turtles, geckos from the Ronde Island, dogfish from Rodrigues Island, eels, Koi carps, monkeys, frogs, wild boars, mongooses, stags, goats, sheep and donkeys. Not to mention the 30-year-old collection of over 20,000 species of insects and butterflies originating from all five continents collected by Jacques Siedlecki.

Children with abundant energy levels will be able to play about in the specifically designed play area that comprises various rides and activities. Such an adventure whets the appetite. A discovery for some, an experience to be renewed for others, the restaurant: Le Crocodile Affamé (the Famished Crocodile) proposes crocodile meat dishes as their specialty.
