Mauritius has been nominated as a leading destination for adventure tourism at the World Travel Awards Africa and Indian Ocean ceremony.
For many of the world’s billions of tourists – those seeking adventure travel has become a cornerstone of the tourism experience. As we shift towards a more globalized world, consumers are increasingly seeking authentic experiences and adventure tourism is no doubt one of the segments in high demand.
For travellers, adventure tourism means an experience-based holiday; it means added value as they learn and interact with locals and connect with their core values.
For companies and destinations in Mauritius, adventure travel attracts visitors outside of peak season, highlights the natural and cultural values of a destination, thereby promoting its preservation, helps differentiate from competitors, and creates resilient and committed travellers. In many ways Mauritius tourism is getting this right.
From a global perspective, adventure tourism in Mauritius incorporates and promotes the values of the tourism that we want – a tourism that respects cultural and natural assets and protects the most vulnerable.
