ConfectionHot6345 asked 1 year ago

Hi! I'm curious if there are any risky roads in Mauritius, particularly at night with regards to thieves or other dangers. If you have any personal experiences or advice, I would greatly appreciate it if you could share them in the comments section. Thanks!

Basically, never stop whatever happens, stones or eggs thrown at you. It can happen in certain areas.
Also beware of unauthorized racing on some arteries of motorways during the night. Just give way if you find yourself in the middle of one of those.

Keep a machete beneath your driver seat.

Don’t go to strange places at night. At night you have idiots on the roads, and unlawful activities peak during this time. If you are going out at night, make sure it’s a place you know. It’s really as simple as that to be honest.

It can even be dangerous during the day if you go to more remote areas. Be careful of a car trying to block you in asking for a random favour.

I was parked up in the side of a coastal road enjoying the view and an old car pulled up to mine asking to borrow my charger wire. I noticed that while the driver was trying to distract me – their friend got out of the passenger side.

When I noticed the other guy get close to my car – luckily they hadn’t completely trapped me in so I was able to quickly drive off.

    Mauritius is also home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites - the first is Aapravasi Ghat, where Indian labourers were brought over by the Britishers to work on the sugarcane plantations. The name translates to immigration depot. The second World Heritage Site - Mont Le Morne Brabant was once a sanctuary for the slaves who escaped their master's oppressive rule in the 18th and early 19th centuries. This mountain is a popular trekking destination and can provide trekkers with views of a lifetime.
