  • Deer Park landscaped in the middle of the jungle and many species such as crocodiles, monkeys and a highlight of course the giant tortoises, who are very happy when you caress them.

  • This is the second time I go back to vanilla in order to see and touch the giant turtles. This Park is in a tropical forest, can be seen from very many crocodiles and alligators. But Seychelles giant turtles are wonderful, because he is in to enormously, it is possible to take pictures of very close, to the touch, walk next to them... Exhibition of many butterflies and other species in a conservation room. Duration of the tour about 2 hours.

  • La Vanille Nature Park is an excellent place to visit. The visit is quite quick to do and this nature park offers 4 interesting activities: one part with a little museum dedicated to wildlife in Mauritius (in particular turtles and the dodo), one part dedicated to the preservation and reproduction of turtles, one part with animals (especially turtles) and another with is the landscape which is very nice. I really recommend this place.
  • An awesome experience. Plus we ate crocodile meat and it tastes really good. Overall a very nice place to go when in Mauritius
  • Beautiful and large open place with many things and animals to see and also some small museums, where you can learn about history. It's worth a visit.
  • Place seems a little run down but some good exhibits especially the insect/butterfly display as well as the fossils. Good walks & paths in nature. Do not forget the anti mozzie cream.
  • Too many of the animals are given enclosures that are too small for their needs, and the behaviour exhibited by some of them show distress because of it. It's basically a zoo. Whilst the tortoise enclosure is fascinating, I feel morally culpable for having paid to visit this place and certainly regret going.
