Porlwi Festival – Celebrate Nature 

In December 2017, Port Louis celebrates Nature during the annual Porlwi Festival, which combines light displays, artist installations, music and cuisine, as tourists and locals alike are challenged to think about a greener future and how humans and nature can cohabit in a modern city.  While most activities will take place in the old streets of Port Louis, the most spectacular view will be high above as some of the city’s most iconic buildings are dressed in light. Escape the crowds with Intercruises during a sunset cruise along the waterfront, where guests can relax with cocktails & canapes while enjoying the city’s light show.

The Chickfun Bus – Real Local Immersion

The bus is not air-conditioned, has basic seats and sometimes carries live animals, such as chickens and rabbits, BUT we promise an exceptional journey full of discovery, surprises and fun for those who dare. Get an authentic glimpse of local Mauritian life by hopping on one of our local buses for a journey along a coastal road through the traditional villages of Mauritius. During the trip meet artisans from daily Mauritian folklore – a local fisherman going home, a sugarcane cutter with fresh sugarcane for his kids, a local rum maker on his way to the market, a peanut seller with delicious snacks or a troupe of sega musicians and dancers on the way to a party (Please Note: You may be invited to dance!). Note: This tour has been specially prepared by our dedicated product team to showcase the local life and culture. We employ only locals from the region to perform in this tour.
