It is the very old botanical garden of Mauritius. It was made in the memory of independence of Mauritius. There is wide range of veritas of tress brought here from Africa, India and whole over the world. It is not like you have seen the other botanical gardens having flowers and other stuff. But worth for visit. Good place for visit.
What a magical botanical garden! All those beautiful species mainly from tropics, Asia and Africa, South America. There grounds are very interesting. It is worth to take a one hour guided tour, and then get lost in the jungle of paths and plants for hours. The parking is free.
