Mauritius Pamplemousses Garden
 

The Pamplemousses Garden also known as Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Gardens is located in the northern part of the island and is a lot visited by tourists but also locals. The botanical garden is located in the small village of Pamplemousses which in Mauritius also a fruit and is said to have got its name from the “Plamplemoucier” a citrus plant imported by the Dutch at the time they visited the island. The garden was in the past the property of the French governor Mahé de Labournnais, he had his house there and the actual Pampleplousses Garden was his garden. Pierre Povre was the one who introduced all sorts of plants in the garden called at this time “Jardin de Mon Plaisir”. In the garden can also be found the huge water lily pond which is just wonderful! Walking all along those avenues is just great and to discover the different palm species and other plant.
