Reunion Island boasts unique experiences that has made this tropical gem a must visit destination for that much needed year-end break. Situated 3000km off the coast of South Africa and only a 4-hour flight from Johannesburg, you can be on your way to new adventures before you know it!
Escape the Mundane
Trade the boardroom and midweek traffic for a trip to Cirque Salazie which is known as Reunion Island’s greenest and most accessible cirque. Scale the rugged terrain and make your way through the forested landscapes to encounter spectacular views such as Cirque de Mafate, one of Reunion Islands most sought after locations as it offers remarkable views of the entire island domain.
After descending from your adventures in Salazie, you can enjoy a trip around the Island with a quad bicycle experience which allows you to explore Reunion Island in comfort while getting your heart racing and adrenaline pumping. Cruise along the pathways and roads that span across the island and embrace the tranquillity of Reunion’s natural geography.
If a thrilling quad experience isn’t your style then try a hike up to Maïdo or travel along Trou de Fer! Both these locations offer great hiking trails and allow you to immerse yourself in the natural splendour offered by Reunion Island. Maïdo, a volcanic peak found on Reunion Island, has some of the most remarkable tracks that will lead you through the heart of the forests found on the Island, while Trou de Fer boasts breathtakingly beautiful natural waterfalls that cascade from the rocky mountainsides. These natural formations make for striking photographic experiences as well as the opportunity to get a little wet while enjoying a dip in some of the natural water bodies found at the base the waterfalls.
Reunion Island will ensure that your year-end break is not only memorable but also relaxing and rejuvenating. This jewel of a destination has a wide variety of options which include adventure packed activities or simply relaxing with a cocktail at one of the delightful spas before heading to a destination such as Grand Anse, which boasts pristine white sandy beaches. Food lovers will have a great time exploring local delicacies as the island cuisine is made up of a mix of Creole, Indian, Chinese and French cultures making for a true cultural experience. Revel in trendy beach restaurants that serve the catch of the day or indulge in mouth-watering Creole specialties in quaint little restaurants.
Choose the perfect package for that oncoming year-end retreat and dive into the pleasures offered by Reunion Island!
