122 931km // A LUXURIOUS GETAWAY // MAURITIUS

Half the fun of travel, as we’ve seen with our recent trips through East Africa, Central EuropeAustria’s Winter Wonderland and now Mauritius, is that it’s the people you meet and get to spend time with, that really make the trip.

We’ve been extremely lucky to meet some crazy, cool, and creative people during our 15 months, but one of the highlights for sure, has been the recent trip we did with fellow South African photographers, Roy, Gareth, Gav and Scrooch, and the wonderful social media team at the LUX* Resorts & Hotels in Mauritius.

We met with the LUX* team (btw you should seriously check out their array of hotels and resorts – Mind. Blown.) for a campaign we called #LUXin4days, and we explored this gorgeous island from tip to tip. We swam with dolphins near the unusual rock formation known as Crystal Rock, enjoyed ice-creams and sorbets at LUX’s ICI bars, enjoyed picturesque sunsets at the edge of the beach, and devoured countless meals that were as colourful on the tongue as they were on the eye. We visited the cute red church in Cap Malheureux, drank locally brewed beer at the Flying Dodo’s home – Lambic, and shuffled our way through the colourful markets at Port Louis.

Mauritius, you were astonishing, and it’s no wonder you get hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. We will no doubt be back to witness more of your vibrancy. Thank you!

And a massive thank you to our #gimme????????????crew for these gorgeous pics:
