Listed in 2014 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the traditional Mauritian sega tipik is a very dynamic performance art, emblematic of the Creole community and practiced during informal family events as well as in public places. The songs, sung in a minor tone, gradually increase their rhythm, while the dancers move their hips and hands to the rhythm of the percussion, taking small steps to evolve around each other in various formations.
Each soloist improvises lyrics in Creole language, sometimes mixed with other languages, while a drum, a rattle box and a triangle give the tempo and produce the typical rhythm.
Sega songs speak of love or the difficulties of everyday life, and their lyrics are often represented in the choreography.
Traditionally, women wear long skirts and petticoats, while men wear rolled up pants, colorful shirts and straw hats, recalling the attire of their ancestors. The main practitioners are the singers, the dancers and the musicians, who transmit their knowledge in a formal as well as informal way through participation and imitation. Some practitioners also manufacture the instruments and pass on their know-how through informal learning. Representing the multiculturalism of Mauritian society, sega breaks down cultural and class barriers, creates opportunities for intercultural encounters, and unifies different groups around a shared Mauritian heritage.

It is for this reason that we recommend that you do not leave Mauritius without having attended a Sega show. We would be very happy to organize this show especially for you when you arrive at the residence.
Watch and swim with dolphins
Dolphins fascinate men by their intelligence but also by the relationship they can create with them. Unlike many species, the dolphin is not afraid of us and is easily approached. Moreover, he often accompanies men on the high seas: in Mauritania or Brazil, he helps fishermen by pushing the fish in their nets,
it has also seen guiding boats to avoid sandbanks and even save swimmers from drowning. But besides his exploits, it is his player character that makes him so endearing. He loves to jump out of water up to 6m high, he surfs with pleasure on the waves in the furrow of the boats and is sometimes surprised in the middle of a ball, throwing with his muzzle a piece of wood to his congeners.
Where can we swim with Dolphins? In Mauritius, they will be found in the bay of Black River or the Bay of Tamarin, starting from the beaches of the Southwest and La Gaulette. They are long-beaked dolphins that are said to be especially acrobats: the best at the twisted jump, able to do four tendrils on themselves! Ask our manager if you want him to organize a memorable picnic day on the island to the holy water during which you can approach the dolphins.
Visiting Ile aux cerfs
This uninhabited islet is one of the most beautiful sites on the island. It is a must if you decide to make a getaway in the north-east of Mauritius. There are different ways to access Deer Island and discover this iconic site. A water taxi is responsible for shuttles between Trou d'Eau Douce and Ile aux Cerfs every 20 minutes from 9am in the morning. We strongly recommend that you book in advance to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Our manager will be happy to help you. You will then be free to independently discover all the beauty of Ile aux Cerfs and spend the day or half day there.
