The sanctuary is a protected area for birds who traveled thousands of kilometers away from harsh winters to get a hotter temperature on the island!The migration period is from October to April and it is accessible to everybody!

I don't understand the poor reviews from others on this site. It is easy to find, with big brown signs as you drive through Port Louis. The reserve itself is small compared to British/western standards, with just a single hide but the warden on site...More
