Mauritius Travel Guide
It is thought that Mauritius was discovered by a group of Arab sailors in the 9th century. Mauritius was uninhabited both before and after then, then in 1598, the Dutch took possession of the island and decided to inhabit it themselves. However, after they destroyed much of the island, the Dutch left and the French came, followed by the British. The island has been run democratically since 1992 and has attracted much foreign investment, enabling it to have one of Africa’s highest incomes.
