One of the famous natural tourist attractions in Mauritius is the Trou aux Cerfs dormant volcano located about 1 kilometer from the town of Curepipe. The dormant, volcanic crater is around 605 meters above sea level, with a diameter of 350 meters and a depth of around 100 meters. Interestingly, Trou aux Cerfs is also called ‘Murr’s Volcano’. Unlike the typical volcanic features, Trou aux Cerfs’ crater is surrounded by a vast area of lush forest consisting of indigenous plant species and some giant green pine trees. It is believed that the Trou aux Cerfs erupted once and has remained dormant for the last 700 000 years; experts believe that there is a potential chance for it to become active again.

Definitely, one of the main highlights is the 360-degree view of the town, Curepipe, and the majestic view of the Rempart Mountain, Trois Mamelles, and the Port-Louis- Moka mountain range.

This luxuriantly green sanctuary is a favourite jogging spot for the locals living in the region. It has become a socializing spot where you can find local joggers every day in the morning, at around 05h00. There is also a wooden kiosk where you can sit, relax and of course appreciate the unparalleled natural beauty. It can get a little cold due to the surrounding woods and height, so a light sweater or shawl can be brought along.

It was my first time to Mauritius and decided to book transfers with Taxi Mauritius (TravelHub)And it was the best decision to make. Had a clear communication from first enquiry with confirmations of payment. On arrival, we were met by our lovely driver Dave who was very accommodating and respectful and was patiently waiting for us in the exact spot as instructed.During our time in Mauritius we wanted to take a tour of the south of the island, so I emailed taxi Mauritius and received a response hours later and a confirmation. I would highly recommend the private tours.Our transfer back to the airport was on time and again a very comfortable vehicle for our group. Will be using this company again when I return to Mauritius.

Good quality service

Booked airport transfers and island tours via e mail in Aug'23. Had a very nice experience. Quick responses on mail and clarity on prices. Car was clean and always on time. Special Thanks to Neiha who handled booking and Pradeep who drove us on all trips and acted as a guide as well.

While visiting a foreign country and booking cabs through mails may lead to doubts in quality of service. But with Taxi Service, one can keep aside all worries.

We’ve also learned to excel in providing a friendly service to tourists visiting the island. Our online platform is dedicated to visitors coming from over the world & provide them with a reliable transport solution that is both easy to pre-book & pay. We’ve succeeded in building a very positive 5-Star reputation in 2020 on our TripAdvisor & Trustpilot profiles thanks to our fantastic, friendly & dedicated staff. Unlike the competition, we believe that each & every transfer needs planning & briefing. Based on your special requests, we know who we have to send to you & we won’t just send a driver who was just roaming around your pick-up location. At Taxi Service Mauritius, trips are planned in advance to ensure a high level of service & the driver details are sent to customers at least a day before the transfer. That is also why we also urge customers to book at least a day in advance. To cut short, we are the ones that offer great service at a reasonable price in Mauritius (usually 30-50% cheaper than the individual taxis).

Our fleet consists of brand-new passenger cars, Minibuses (10 & 15 seaters), Coaster Buses, VIP Vehicles & SUVs. All our drivers are licensed individuals, never been convicted to court, have a rating of +4 over 5 & are screened every 6 months by our directors in person. Most of our drivers are local gentlemen, family-man, aged between 30-55 years old & they all have a passion for their job. They love what they do and we invite you to discover it yourself. Unlike other taxi-hailing businesses, we fully know in advance who we are sending to our guests. We believe that every trip whether short or long needs planning & preparation. We will brief your driver extensively based on your requirements for the transfer – Once this is done, we will send you the driver’s details for your convenience one day prior to the transfer. Thanks to our drivers & planning team for giving everything day & night to help us achieve success & great customer satisfaction. You can reach us through our Whatsapp or our phone office if you prefer to speak with someone at Taxi Service Mauritius. Or you can simply leave us an email & we will get back to you within hours.
