This wildlife sanctuary, where history meets nature in the preserved South-West of Mauritius, was named after the historic Frederica sugar estate founded in the 19th century, whose chimney still towers over the landscape.
Frederica is your chance to get closer to nature in more ways than one by exploring this place blessed with incredibly rich biodiversity, teeming with rare endemic plant and animal species. Cross rivers, streams, dams and enjoy the cool rush of L’Exemple waterfall.
The rolling landscape of the reserve is wonderful for a quad ride. To keep it safe and enjoyable for all, a ‘test’ session with an experienced guide will prepare you for the thrill and wonder that await you.
