Get the best of both worlds by combining a lively city getaway with a relaxing trip to awe-inspiring golden beaches on our Dubai and Mauritius multi-centre holiday. Take control of your itinerary and experience more of what you love, by uncovering Dubai’s rich culture and history, watching the sunset and stargazing in the desert, swimming with dolphins or diving with sharks, and reading your favourite book on the long-stretching, unspoilt beaches.
Unearth the wonders of Dubai, by visiting the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, or by exploring the impeccable shopping and fine dining facilities. Families should take a trip to one of the many exciting water parks. Sail across to Dubai Creek and get a taste of the Old Town as you stroll along the streets and haggle with locals to find bargain souvenirs for loved ones. We recommend spending at least three nights in Dubai to really experience the rich wonders this exciting city offers.
Once you’ve had your fill of the bustling city, hop onto a six hour flight which will take you onto the next leg of your journey. Enjoy Mauritius’s rich culture and spend some time learning about the many religions and beliefs that live alongside each other on the island. Adventure into the unknown by following hiking trails in the Black River Gorges National Park. Try your hand at snorkelling in the crystal clear waters and search for colourful inhabitants such as the Butterfly Fish, Clownfish and the Ladyfish.
