Ten reasons you should experience Mauritius for yourself!
Radio Veritas presenter Khanya Litable was recently invited by the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) to cover Pope Francis' 9th September 2019 apostolic voyage to Mauritius.
He very quickly discovered that Mauritius has more to offer than just sandy beaches and sunshine. As Khanya is also a serious and talented photographer, he recorded his impressions of the island on his blog:
Mauritius is affectionately known as the Paradise Island because of its beautiful picturesque beaches. This is why I was totally ecstatic when I received a kind offer from Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) to cover Pope Francis 9th September 2019 apostolic voyage to Mauritius. This was as a result of Radio Veritas, The Southern Cross and Spotlight Africa's collaboration to take pilgrims to Mauritius to see the Pope, to have a spiritual revival and a holiday of sorts. The South African office of MTPA were very kind to us and for that we are truly grateful.
And so like a typical inland person, I went to Mauritius expecting to be on the beach everyday all day, save the Pope’s Mass. However, it turned out that Mauritius has far more to offer than the blue clear beaches and perfect weather.
