SSR Botanic Garden, Pamplemousses

Stroll across the 37 hectares (91 acres) of SSR Botanic Garden and explore the preserved plant life of the Southern Hemisphere's oldest botanical garden. Admire the neatly maintained gardens and their luxuriant vegetation, including the giant water lilies of the park's main pond, abundance of sugar canes, and over 85 varieties of palm tree. Named after the attractive grapefruit tree that grows in the region (thought to have been introduced by the Dutch), the garden boasts decorative plants as well as fruit trees, all giving an excellent introduction to the agricultural and culinary heritage of the island nation.

  • It is an exceptional Park that I rediscovered after 25 years with a heavy heart because maintenance begins to leave to be desired. What a pity! A large variety of trees of the basins to the lotus pink and white and finally the most famous with its giant water lilies... It a place not to be missed but permissible 'State must be concerned about its conservation, beforehe' i was too late... We can walk several hours...
