Parc Francois Leguat, Rodrigues Island

Discover the natural history of the island nation at Parc Francois Leguat, an animal and plant conservation project. Since its colonization 300 years ago, the island of Rodrigues has lost its native forestland, and much of its indigenous vegetation and wildlife have become extinct. The reserve protects the island's natural heritage over an area of 20 hectares (49 acres), reintroducing, managing, and conserving endemic species. Stroll around the well-maintained footpaths to spot giant tortoises and the rare Rodrigues fruit bat, and take a guided tour of the cave system. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Rodrigues Island trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Nice park and lots of tortoises, the best things is that you can walk around them instead of watching them in a cage.  more »
  • Nice walk to 1500 turtles in this large area. Many are hidden but we take pleasure to caress those that crossed it. They love it, great fun. More. The dans.les.grottes walk away is simple but nice.

  • (Compulsory) guided tour is very interesting! Go in the morning, after the heat makes the visit much less pleasant. We can approach the adult turtles and even 'caress '... The children are delighted! You can visit a cave in option. The cave is pretty and very well lit but if you do the tour with very young children, are planning to skip this step. The 'turtles' tour takes about 1 h 15 and the cave he takes at least 30 minutes more. Great welcome and great guide!
