A wonderful family bike ride awaits you on the easy trails of the Wolmar hunting grounds located on the west coast of Mauritius, at Flic en Flac. Explore Nou Zil opens the doors of this private domain generally closed to the public. Enjoy this outdoor family excursion without further delay.
This family biking tour is ideal for everyone who loves nature and who is looking for exoticism. Going at the discovery of this hunting area, which opens its doors to our cyclists, off hunting periods, allows you to admire the fauna and flora of Mauritius while pedalling gently on the sandy paths
Throughout the course you will have the chance to see animals in the open air, ‘brown pigs’ (wild boars), Java deer, hinds with their fawns, geese and birds, all in their natural habitat.
It’s a fantastic adventure for children; a breath of fresh air. Accompanied by an experienced Mauritian guide who knows well how to keep alive the attention of children, this walk will remain for them an unforgettable memory of their holidays in Mauritius.
They will have a lot to tell their friends on returning back home. Breaks at strategic locations will allow you to rest and take pictures with your children. They will be delighted to climb the wooden watchtowers on which hunters settle during a hunting party to better see the animals from afar.
Like all children, they will be delighted to admire the wildlife while having fun. It is the whole family that will be fascinated by the beauty of nature, plants and tropical vegetation of this very special site in Wolmar.

Wolmar is located at the end of the village of Flic en Flac on the west coast of Mauritius. Wolmar’s private estate is hilly and wooded giving it a crazy charm. It is close to the sea and to a beautiful irresistible sandy beach, quieter than the large public beach of Flic en Flac. Being less busy it allows a peaceful swim with the family. It is also the ideal place to make beautiful pictures.
This hunting ground offers beautiful hikes thanks to its paths and trails drawn in the middle of lush vegetation. The primary function of this nature reserve is deer hunting, from June to September, and tourist activities are obviously held off hunting period. Cycling excursions allow you to be closer to the animals (deer, ‘brown pigs’ (wild boars), bats, hares and birds). Large coral blocks scattered over the place are one of the curiosities of this green place. Part of the forest is planted with Eucalyptus trees used for the production of coal. Here, you can observe the Mauritian nature as you have rarely done!
