Mauritius has a lot to offer beyond its luxury hotels, pristine waters, and white sand beaches. The country is also home to exotic flora and fauna species. Located in Forest Side, Curepipe Mon Vert Nature Park is where you will come across brilliantly made botanical gardens and indigenous forest. This is where you will meet nature in its best, purest form. Mon Vert park or nature walk is situated only 3 kilometres from the urban city, making getting away from city life more accessible than ever.
The area of Mon Vert was previously a dense indigenous forest - with Manglier vert, Bois Manioc, and Bois de Natte, and more such tree species being the most commonly sighted ones. In the early 1900s, the entire region was replanted with invasive trees after the area was taken for logging. This was done for the primary purpose of conservation because of high biodiversity of endangered species on the island. The nature walk was set up in 2001.
