The Mauritian ecotourism sector has experienced an increase in attendance during the last semester of the year 2013 with more and more travellers who landed on the island looking for a tourism off the beaten tracks.
 
The hotel operators and promoters of this activity thus want to continue to surf on this trend and provide for 2014 an increase of more than 10% in terms of turnover in the market of ecotourism in Mauritius, as reported in the newspaper Le Défi Quotidien.
 
The hotel operators and promoters also want authorities to promote and support more intensely the sector of ecotourism on the island.
 
For Warren Foo Tam Fong, Director of the hotel Lakaz Chamarel, "the very basis of ecotourism must be mount", noting that its structure is "one of the few hotels in Mauritius offering tourist accommodation built with environmentally friendly materials", like wood and bamboo.
 
On his part, Patrick Haberland head of Yemaya Adventures-Excursions (Canoe-kayak, mountain biking, hiking) also pointed out that the sector is growing and that Mauritius has become an eco-tourism destination recognised globally.
