In Pictures: Mauritius fam trip - part two

The last two days of the fam trip (28-29 January) tested the group's head for heights, while guests also had the chance to try out seakarting, a water sport activity exclusive to Mauritius.

On the morning of 28 January, the group, including event planners from CI Events, Rockitfish, Wolf & White, Cornucopia Events, Blue Line Events, Conference Contacts and KWTM, headed to Casela Nature & Leisure Park on the west coast of the island, to face their fears and push adrenalin levels to the limit.

The group made their way one by one (slowly) across the park's Nepalese Bridge, a wooden and wobbly hanging bridge suspended 60m above a canyon before facing three zipline rides of 150-200m long. Lunch was held at Le Chamarel, with stunning views of the coastline, where the group enjoyed a 'millionaire's salad', made from heart of palm, alongside chicken and fish dishes. This was followed by a stop at Case Noyale, a former hunting lodge that can be used as a venue and a visit to the Rhumerie de Charamel, a rum distillery. As well as learning about the rum-making process, the group tested their cocktail making skills against each other, with three teams making a traditional Ti'Punch and a Daiquiri. 

The evening was rounded off with a white-themed gala dinner held in one of three villas on the beachfront of Le Morne peninsula at the DinaRobin Hotel Golf & Spa resort. The group enjoyed a Mauritian-style barbecue with meat and fish and drinks around the pool.

On the last day (29 January), the group travelled by boat to Black River, to take part in a seakarting adventure, a cross between a jet ski and a speed boat. The water sport activity is exclusive to the destination. This was followed by a leisurely catamaran cruise with snorkeling, followed by lunch on board. 

The group returned to London Heathrow this morning (30 January) after an overnight flight. The five-day fam trip was organised by Emotions DMC and hosted by Pearl Representation, Air Mauritius and Beachcomber Hotels.
