Hunting trip to Mauritius

Drive hunting for Rusa deer and Indonesian wild boar

Mauritius is a fantastic destination that offers an exciting combination of exotic hunting and relaxing sun holidays. Here you can enjoy unique experiences and hunting adventures in an enchanting environment.

For three days, you can take part in a drive hunt for Rusa deer and Indonesian wild boar. After an exciting hunt, relax and enjoy a delicious lunch of grilled seafood aboard a catamaran. You can also visit one of the island's rum distilleries and explore the beautiful white beaches with palm trees in the sunshine.

If you wish, we can also arrange fishing, golf or diving to further enhance your trip. Mauritius offers deep sea fishing, fantastic diving experiences on the coral reefs and beautiful world-class golf courses.

We have created a luxurious package where you don't have to think about anything else, just enjoy the fantastic experiences. If you have special requests, we can customize the trip in collaboration with our colleagues at Hummingbird Lifestyle Travel. 

This trip is perfect for couples who want to enjoy a vacation together while combining different activities and interests. 

About wildlife in Mauritius

The Rusa deer is a species that is slightly smaller than a red deer and is distinguished by its straight and tall antlers. They have a rough coat compared to many other deer, and their antlers appear relatively large in relation to their body. An impressive trophy from a Rusa deer can have three long spikes on each side and be about a meter high.

Rusa deer usually live in packs.

Today, Mauritius has one of the world's strongest populations of Rusa deer.

The story of how the Rusa deer first came to the island has several different versions.

One version is that a Dutch ship sailed from the island of Java in Indonesia in 1639 and passed through Mauritius. The ship encountered problems on board that forced them to disembark on the island. The ship was carrying live Rusa deer and Indonesian wild boar to be taken from Java to Holland.

When a powerful cyclone passed by and destroyed the entire camp, the animals managed to escape.

Since there were no predators on the island, the deer were able to breed undisturbed for many years until the French arrived in the 18th century, when the deer population had grown large enough to hunt.

Since then there has been management of the population on the island and new blood has been introduced to strengthen the population.

Now, almost 400 years later, Mauritius has one of the world's densest populations of Rusa deer and they are an important part of the island's wildlife. It is estimated that there are over 60 000 deer on the island today.

In the hilly terrain and tropical environment of Mauritius, together with the sharp senses and instincts of the Rusa deer, these deer offer a very exciting and challenging hunt that is different from other forms of deer hunting.

It is truly an amazing experience to hunt these beautiful deer in the tropical environment of Mauritius.

The quest for Mauritius

Hunting in Mauritius can be done in two ways, Stalking and drive hunting.

In Mauritius, you can take part in exciting hunting experiences with both Stalking and drive hunting. During the arrow hunt, you hunt alongside an experienced PH (Professional Hunter) and sneak close to different groups of animals to hunt the right individual.

Here you have the opportunity to hunt really old and impressively large deer. The management of the deer population has resulted in a high chance of killing older medal deer during the arrow hunt.

Drive hunts can be carried out in different ways, the most common method being the use of traditional drive chains with dogs driving the animals in front of them.

During our drive hunt in Mauritius we hunt both Rusa deer and Indonesian wild boar during three days. We are a group of at least five hunters during the drive hunt and expect to kill about 5-12 animals per person during these three days. The package includes up to 12 Rusa deer per person, which can be both smaller deer and hinds, and unlimited wild boar. If you wish to shoot more Rusa deer, this is also possible.

We provide rental guns specially adapted for driven hunting in Mauritius, as it is difficult to import Swedish guns to the island.

During the drive hunt, a delicious lunch is served at the hunting lodge. 

At the end of the day, there is a ceremonial unveiling and measurement of any trophies.

If you wish to shoot a medal deer during the drive hunt or even conduct a Stalking during the week, this is possible. A Rusa deer that reaches gold status costs approximately €2,500.
