If you’d like to skip out on the cold and head out to the sun with three of your best friends thanks to Mauritius Tourism and City Press, then here's how you can #RatherBeInMauritius. 

Just a short flight from Johannesburg, the exotic island of Mauritius is one of Africa’s tourism jewels, offering an abundance of scenic beauty, hidden treasures and adventure.

This beautiful Indian Ocean island is yours to discover, explore and experience. Feel the warm sun on your skin as you swim, dive and sail in the crystal-clear azure ocean. Enjoy luxury hotels and exquisite white sand beaches. Play golf on some of the most beautiful courses in the world.

Trek, run and cycle through breathtaking terrain. Walk amid vibrant villages, street markets and iconic landmarks and soak up the authentic culture and history of the island.

Host a conference or spoil your team.

Discover a mosaic of different cultures, each with their own cuisines and crafts.

With its wealth of luxury, beauty and culture – and a variety of adventure experiences – Mauritius has something for everyone.

I’d #RatherBeInMauritius has become the siren call of the island’s visitors.

With its tailored year-round packages offering unprecedented luxury, your dream holiday to Mauritius could just become a reality.

So, if you’d like to skip out on the cold and head out to the sun with three of your best friends thanks to Mauritius Tourism and City Press, then here’s how you can #RatherBeInMauritius:
