According to AAA, an estimated 88 million Americans planned to take a family vacation in 2018. Many of these destinations will be warm, while 35% of travelers plan to visit an international destination.

Americans love to travel to islands and tend to visit places like Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean, the Florida Keys, and countless other destinations. Did you know the continent of Africa has many islands off the coast of it shores?  Some of these islands include: Zanzibar, Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, Sao Tome and Principe, Cape Verde, Comoros, and Reunion island to name a few.

An Africa island I have become quite fond of is Mauritius, which is east of Madagascar. Mauritius is small island in the southern hemisphere and it lies in the Indian ocean approximately 788 square miles with approximately 1.265 million inhabitants. The people of Mauritius are made up of African, Indian, French, and Chinese descent.

The biggest exports of Mauritius are clothing, textiles, sugar, flowers, molasses, fish, and radio transmission equipment. While driving around the island you can’t help but to see the large amounts of sugar cane planted around the island. The island is known for its coffee grown on the island in volcanic soil with an annual production predicted at 10,000 tons of coffee. In addition, Mauritius  has plenty of fresh fruit like bananas, pineapple, lychees, papaya, etc.  In the last decade, Mauritius has also begun producing some great rums: dark, light, and spiced out of sugar cane juice.

Mauritius is home to many bird species, but the most famous is the Dodo bird. The Dodo was a flightless bird estimated to be between 29 – 51 lbs. and a part of the pigeon and dove family. Having no known predators, the Dodo was able to roam freely and produce in isolation from significant predators until the Dutch arrived. It is widely believed the Dutch sailors arriving to the shores of Mauritius drove the Dodo to extinction. Another animal you will see on the island are the Macaque monkeys, which are said to be non-native species typically found in North Africa, Gibraltar, and Asia.

Mauritius has many activities on this tiny island from shopping, enjoying the many beaches, water sports, natural sites, great food, and of course its hospitable people. While on the island you will have to visit the Seven Colored Earth in Charamel, Trou aux Cerfs (dormant volcano), Black River Gorge National Park, Central Market in Port Louis, Shiva & Durga, Gris Gris beach, Grand Baie, and much, much more.

Next time when you think about that island paradise, look outside your normal locations and check out island locations on the continent of Africa you won’t be sorry.
