A pleasant walk in the botanical garden

Existing since 150 years back, it has always been the pride of the town of Curepipe . It is located on the western extremities of Curepipe around 2 kilometers from the town centre. It covers an area of about 27 acres.
The main species of the garden are the planted camphor and the Rhododendrons. There is a collection of exotic fruit trees. The most striking specimen is the Hyophorbe amaricaulis unique in Mauritius .
Opening hours: 6hrs to 18hrs (winter-1st May to 30 September), 7hrs to 19hrs (summer- 1st October to 30 April)
