Francois Leguat Reserve, Rodrigues Island

Must see · Nature / Park · Wildlife Area
Discover the natural history of the island nation at Francois Leguat Reserve, 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. Planning Rodrigues Island trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
