Conservatoire Botanique National, Saint-Leu

4.2
Nestled on a hillside, Conservatoire Botanique National invites you to explore the plant life endemic to the Mascarene Islands. The garden spreads over 3 hectares (7.4 acres) of land and features nearly 4,000 plants grouped into seven sections, including an orchard, bamboo ravine, and orchid house--possibly the garden's biggest attraction. In the arid part of the garden dedicated to American and African succulents and exotic cacti, look for the spiderwebs woven by some very large specimens. Don't miss the section with agricultural plants that have shaped the island's history and culture. Our Saint-Leu trip itinerary builder makes visiting Conservatoire Botanique National and other Saint-Leu attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Mascarin Botanical Conservatory is an enchanting place. We have been going there with our families at least once a year for many years. Whether you are a tourist or not it is a must of Reunion.
