An excursion in the heart of nature
Discovering the Fauna and the Mauritian Flora
In the Domain of Wolmar, more than 5000 Java deer live on 700 hectares of land (one hectare is 10,000 square meters). This species was introduced in Mauritius in 1639 by the Dutch, the first colonizers of Mauritius.
The herd that roams freely in their natural habitat and comes to feed on fresh herbs a few meters away from you, is composed of male deer with their big horns, doe, fawn and adolescent males that are called ‘daguets’ for their short horns.
Fewer and therefore more difficult to meet during your ride, are wild boars, called brown pigs in Mauritius.
Your guide knows the place well and will do everything possible for you to meet them. On the other hand, you will have all the leisure to observe birds, lizards and bats.
On the estate exists an endangered trade, the production of artisanal coal, transmitted from one generation to the other. Unfortunately the coal producer is not always present, but with a little luck, you will be able to meet him and discover this endangered profession.
Our passionate guides will tell you the history of the estate, open to hunting for 4 months of the year, and the reason for the introduction of Java deer and their importance for Mauritius.
