Why Mauritius?

Mauritius is situated at approximately 2000 kilometers to the south-eastern coast of Africa and lies east of Madagascar on 20°S, 57.5°E. The land has an area of 1865 square kilometers with 330 kilometers of coastline. Inland features include a vast central plateau, subtropical forests, rivers, streams and waterfalls. Bordering this tableland are several mountain ranges consisting of diverse shaped masses of basalt testifying the volcanic origins of the island.

Mauritius is a crucible of diverse cultures and religious which our immigrant population brought from ancestral soils. Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism are the most practiced religions. All year long their festivities are celebrated in peace and harmony. The country today is recognized cultural melting pot and is often cited as a perfect example of peaceful co­existence of the main religions of the world.

Most people in Mauritius are bilingual being equally fluent in English and French. Creole and French is predominant in everyday life and several oriental languages are spoken too.
