Parc Francois Leguat, Rodrigues Island
(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Rodrigues Island holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parc Francois Leguat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A must-see if you're visiting has Rodrigues. Staff very friendly and smiling. Great restaurant. A visit guided with a touch of humor but very professional. Possibility to make great photos with the turtles. The cave is just magical.

  • This reserve is worth a visit both for turtles that are there and the magnificent cave who is there and who benefits lighting quality on the stalactites and stalagmites. Special mention to the very nice guides.
