Wild South – Tea route

Posted: 29/05/2018

You’ll definitely enjoy the picturesque tea route whether you decide to go along the west coast through Tamarin (Salt Route) down to Le Morne (Slave Route) then to Riambel and drive through Souillac to Saint Aubain where you can enjoy the restaurant and visit the tea factory of Bois Cheri and its tea plantations and drive up to Curepipe and stop at Domaine Les Aubineaux or start on the plateau and drive down through the old road of Nouvelle France and to Bois Cheri.


The first option is certainly the best one but it might not be very convenient if you are staying in the north or in the east. The first option combines mountain and ocean vistas over kilometres with authentic settings and you can stop by the Tamarin Bay or further down at Amba Filao in Le Morne enclave for a Flying Dodo beer. As we drove through the tea and sugar cane fields on leaving Bois Cheri Tea factory, we spotted a local restaurant Comlone, up in La Flora. We had such an enjoyable meal. They have plenty of fish and sea food option. The restaurant overlooks the tea fields, so make sure you get a table by the window. It’s a bit crowded and noisy on Sundays and you might have to wait a while for your meal, but that should not exceed 15/20 minutes while you sip your drink.


You might also wish to stop at La Vanille Crocodile Park as you entered Souillac, in Riviere des Anguilles. The Park also houses other species: frogs, lizards, iguanas and a museum.


We’d advise that you start that trip early morning as it might last 6-8 hours, unless you decide to visit only one particular spot on that route.

Enjoy your ride!
