Its a formal garden setting, but not in the manicured sense of a British Garden.
Some huge water lilies, plus a number of succulents.
Take a guide. They are multilingual and will give a level of detail that cannot be gleaned from the guide leaflet
Dropped into the gardens as a stage on a tour including Port Louis and a rum plantation. Despite the obvious attractions of the other destinations, the gardens provided the best memory. They are a delight and definitely worth more than the couple of hours we...More

We only had a short time in the gardens so we chose not to use a guide - definitely would next time as the price was reasonable. Also we found that there was very little information along...More

Hi Kapiln, I'd recommend you get a guide (there's an older gut who has worked there for 30 years and charges 50 rupees per person) -he walks you around, giving you history and telling you about the medicinal uses of the trees and plants in the park.
You can walk around on your own if you want but I found the man to have so much knowledge.
