Berjaya Le Morne Beach Resort

I am planning a trip for my parents (both >55 years old) to Mauritius.

Anybody has any comments on the above resort?

Some sentimental reasons of going to Mauritius. My great grandfather was buried in Mauritius. Although we know the chance to find the place is slim, my parents are eager to go to Mauritius and like to seek assistance from the Hakka Association in Mauritius.

I would like to ask for assistance if you ...

The problems of ageing population

It is estimated that the population of old people will increase by more than 5 times in the next 25 years in Africa. It will pass from 38 million in 1999 to some 212 million in 2025.

In Mauritius, the population of over 60 years, estimated at 102 000 in 1999, will cross the 332 000 limit in 2039. The Mauritian government is currently preparing a master plan on this phenomenon which is bound to ...

La Vanille Crocodile Park

La Vanille Crocodile Park is situated in the south of Mauritius. It was opened in 1985 and occupies the valley of a former vanilla growing area. The site is the equivalent of a tropical rain forest with exotic palms, freshwater streams and local flora and fauna.

The park is the brainchild of Owen Griffiths, an Australian zoologist and his Mauritian wife who discovered that the area was suitable for the farming of Nile crocodiles. The ...

Black River Gorge

At Plaine Champagne there are three well marked viewpoints within 3Km (2miles) of each other giving views across the Black River Gorges. The first, 7Km (4miles) from Le Petrin, is on the left and is marked "Alexandra Falls" and leads through shaded forest. The second, 1Km, is closed to vehicles and entails a short walk along a well trodden but unmarked pathway. The third is marked "Black River Gorges Viewpoint" where there is a parking ...

Forest Cover

Prior to the arrival of man, the island was covered with dense forests consisting mainly of tall and slow growing trees. On the low lying lands along the coast, Palm savannah was to be found. At low altitudes there were Diospyros/Elaeodendron forests and on the plateau, forests of Sapotaceae.

All of the Palm savannah disappeared very early on with the arrival and subsequent settlement of man early in the 17th century. That was very ...

Corals In General

Coral reefs are made from masses of lime of carbonate built up from the sea floor by the accumulation over thousands of years of the skeletons of minute animals called polyps. Algae called zooxanthellae live in the tissues of the polyps in a mutually beneficial way (symbiosis). Eventually, the coral reef breaks the surface of the water.

Reef building corals grow best in shallow, sunlit water up to a depth of 12 metres though they ...

National Solidarity (???)

I should perhaps need to highlight that in my opinion are three power bases in MRU. First, the economic power that is in the hands of the White; second, the political power that is in the hands of the Vaish-Hindu; and third, the media power that is in the hands of the Euro-Creole.

When power in a country is divided along ethnic grounds, it is very difficult to build national solidarity. People who pay lipservice ...
