Parc Francois Leguat, Rodrigues Island
(4.5/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • Spent a good time there and the guides were really good. The parc felt lyk a place in the wild where the tortoises were not afraid of us and yearned for a carress 
  • Much about turtles had experienced great hours there,... great photos made and the cave with this great guide was also great!

  • Even if it isn't my dish of the day, I fully support this initiative for the nature of the island.
