Mauritius to Nairobi Posted bystevegail July 18, 2019 4 Comments on Mauritius to Nairobi Saddleback tortoise from Mauritius taken at the Seven soils. There were about 8 of them in a tiny enclosure and love lying in the mud. this one was a little one, just over a metre in length Coloured earths at Chamarel caused by volcanic mineral rich iron oxides and alumina which do not mix, hence the layer and pathways of different colours. Sugar cane was the only income for locals and people were killed for it years ago. Tourism is now the main revenue for the country. There is still lots of sugar cane grown in the south.
