Adventure Holidays in Mauritius: Activities for Kids in MauritiusLike2

We are so consumed with the idea of  keeping the kids entertained that there are so many options today than there ever was in my generation! Every season, a new activity and genre of entertainment is being born, making it a world for the children! Hopefully less iPads and computer games and more nature and outdoor activities. Intellectual activities, reading, exercising etc. Luckily for me, I have adopted the no iPad or TV rule when we travel so that makes it super easy for her to accept the fact that she has no choice but to participate in every single activity!  During my visit to Mauritius, I had done tons of research on adventure holidays in Mauritius for the children and things to do with kids Mauritius, and was very lucky because I had chosen the resorts to stay in, that are super friendly with kids, so, here is a list of the wonderful activities for kids in Mauritius. I booked some of the activities through Kreola a destination tour agency which was super professional and wonderful to work with! 

Always remember the bring sunscreen and don’t pack the iPad! Please, do not support of visit any wildlife activities that allows you to walk with them or take selfies with them.

 

Adventure Holidays in Mauritius: Activities for Kids in Mauritius

 

  1. Zip Lining in Domaine de L’etoile – An incredible experience in Mauritius for children from age experiencing the adrenalin rush in nature! The activity can be done with a parent attaching onto each other’s harness, or alone!
  2. Buggy Ride or Quad Biking – For a certain age group, Quad biking is not allowed for safety reasons so we opted for buggy ride which is in my opinion way more fun! Booked through Kreola and did our activities in Domaine de L’etoile.
  3. Kids Fun Village – A fun village in Mauritius for children from 3 years to 12 years old. From Trampolines to treetop adventures, mini quad biking and much more!
  4. Cooking classes – While staying at Constance Prince Maurice, my 6 year old and I decide to take a sushi cooking class. It was difficult at first watching the chef cut the salmon open but once we started to roll, we had lots of fun! You can also book pizza making or even bake!
  5. Swimming with the Dolphins – Kreola is a travel specialist where they helped us book our day trips. They offer swimming with the dolphins as part of a tour packge and kids LOVE IT! Dolphins are in the wild ofcourse and it is not guaranteed that you always see them but Kreola always organizes the trips very early in the morning, because that is when the possibility to see the dolphins are higher.
  6. Water Ski – One of the most fun activities in the water for children! You have a choice of skiis or to sit in an inflated balloon which looks so comfortable and kids love being dragged through the water.
  7. Hiking – A great way to wake up and learn about nature, get the excecrise going and to explore. Hiking is an excellent adventure activity in Mauritius for kids because they get to learn about mother nature and you also have some quality time with them! Just remember to always bring water with you and a good cap!
  8. Picnic at Isle Aux Cerfs – A day well spent here! Book with Kreola on the ‘one love’ boat or the catamaran which both are safe and fun for children and visit Isle Aux Cerf for a day out in the sun, picnic and lots of water sports activities for kids and on land activities.
  9. Solar Under Sea Walking – We have not personally tried this but for any children older than 5 years old then this should be one crazy experience!
  10. BBQ nights at Constance Prince Maurice – One of the activities I loved for kids in Mauritius while staying at Constance Prince Maurice is the BBQ night theme they had on for one night for 6:30pm to 9:00pm. The kids had a special evening planned for them with bbq under the stars and a movie night! It made my daughter feel super special with her night out with her friends
  11. Tennis – A sport that is widely played in Mauritius. You can even book your own private instructor.
  12. Feeding the fish – As simple as this may sound, every night and every morning, chloe would go out the reception of Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort and Spa and feed the fish in the pond!
  13. Chocolate wrap massage – A fun thing to do for mommy and me is the chocolate wrap and massage at  Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort and Spa – We ended up laughing the whole time and by the time our massage ended, we had already slept through!
  14. Blue Safari – In Mauritius, you get to enjoy the underwater in a submarine in Trou Aux Biches in the North-Western part of Mauritius. Just make sure that it is a clear day with almost no wind at all, otherwise, visibility will be poor and too much shaking of the submarine can make your little one feel a little sick.
  15. The Botanical Garden in Pamplemousse – A beautiful walk through the garden educating the little ones. Make sure you also hire a tour guide as it is much more enlightening with information! There are also no food or drinks or restaurants so make sure you get your own!

  • Good morning from Rovaniemi and from an island hotel in Lapland! I’m back in Finland and this time took my small family and surprised Chloè for Christmas to visit Santa!! We spent 3 nights here and it was everything she dreamed of! Most importantly, she still believes in magic, which is so important for kids, especially at her age to hold on to! 
No matter how old we are...We always need to believe in Magic, don’t we? 💫🎄
  • Moments before my drone lost signal... still worth every minute of it. 
We stayed two nights here on our @travelwithtjd and there is a reason why we keep coming back. One of the greatest hospitality, boutique lodging and deep into the wilderness ♥️ Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd and join our next adventure travel movement ♥️
  • It isn’t always easy for me to get those moments shots. Most of the times, I take a million pictures before getting to the right one. If you flip through them, you can get an idea on how I really looked like before looking like this photo here. Just almost like I have it all together. 
Don’t forget @rsainsuranceuae is still running a competition to give a lucky winner Dhs 20,000 for your dream vacation anywhere in the world! All you have to do is upload your photo fail and #rsatravelphotofails to your image and you could win your dream vacation 😊
  • Initially, I wanted to keep this picture for Christmas... but I’m not the most patient person. 
I had asked @dennisstever to help me out with an image I had in my mind. 
After couple of attempted shots, it wasn’t working out the way I imagined it would.
So we just gave up. 
I remember walking deeper in the forest then heard him scream from far: “Michelle, don’t move!” I paused and stood still. 
And he took the shot. 
What you can’t see, is that right behind me was a 6 meter drop to the frozen white lake, snow falling heavily and my heart beating a million beats per second and I was freezing!
I didn’t want to move, breathe or leave. The view from here was incredible. I tossed my baloon up in the air, and waited for it to slowly fall back to me. 
Travel and photography, always an incredible beautiful surprise and adventure. 
Thank you @dennisstever for the photo and for allowing me to put my camera down in subzero temperatures... even for a little while 💫
  • On the other side, is the best version of yourself you could possibly be. Now close your eyes and let go of everything else... only then will you understand 💫
  • I’m not incomplete. I've learnt to fill my own inner void; But I need to keep being inspired and deeply moved to continue forward. 
Our trips are a reflection of who we are. 
The people on TJD trips are a reflection on the energy we attract. Falling in love with their souls, their strength and the small gestures they do to make you feel so important in their lives. And I’ve felt it. 
When I leave a place like Finland, where I find magic, freedom and peace... my strength is put to test, my balance and my willingness to endure. Because, as someone who is always searching for balance, I find it there. Breaking my own limits, outgrowing myself to live the best way I possibly can, and not the life others expect of me. 💫❄️ #TravelwithTJD @ourfinland

It’s no secret that I, like almost everyone else, have to take a couple of extra (a thousand) shots before getting the right one. But the most difficult ones to take, are the ones with Chloè! 
I cannot get her to stay still!! This was taken 2 years ago unedited. You can see I was desperately trying to keep her still for the shot until she caved in! 
I’m posting this because I’m happy to announce my partnership with @rsainsuranceuae with our second season campaign after the success of the first award winning campaign: ‘The Unluckiest Traveler’ 
Today we launch #rsatravelphotofails - We want you to upload your worst travel photo fail, (because not everyone gets that perfect travel photo) and the winner will get a chance to win their dream vacation!!
Step 1: Upload your worst photo image
Step 2: Tag #rsatravelphotofails 
And stay tuned to see if you won your dream trip worth 20,000 Dhs!!
  • I have so much respect for the emotionally brave. The ones who put in the emotional work and take the real risks of being vulnerable and removing masks. It's easy to make chitchat, but it's hard to speak about what's really under the surface. It's easy to joke, but difficult to cry. It's easy to numb, but hard to feel. That’s what keeps me going with @travelwithtjd and the people I meet along the way. That’s who they are and I love them for it. My love to @dennisstever for taking this photo of me, even when we both knew the ice on the lake was super thin but we braved our way through it. 😊 #TravelwithTJD
  • I can’t find words to describe how I feel being back here in Finland. It’s no secret how much I love this place and how many times I keep coming back. We kicked off our @travelwithtjd trips starting right here and making new friends and sharing some great moments ♥️
  • If you think you’re having a bad day, just remember, there are people that have their ex’s name tattooed on their body... Happy Wednesday! ♥️🤷🏼‍♀️
  • Do you often have picnics?? I found this picnic basket in a store last weekend and, although I don’t do a lot of picnics in Dubai, I bought it, and decided to use it for this photo shoot and get inspired by Italy with the @theitalianwayuae project that I’m so happy to be part of once again this season! Where is your favorite place for picnics??#theitalianway
  • A beautiful day in Dubai with a little too much ice cream! I spent my last weekend with friends & family on the beach before flying back to one of my favorite place on earth to witness the polar nights!! Can you guess where I’m flying back to?
