The Royal Raid takes you even further to the heart of south-western Mauritius!
We are very pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity to live new experiences on the occasion of this 2018 edition. Indeed, the runners of the long and medium format of Royal Raid will have the privilege to cross, among other places, the heart of magnificent private estates located in the beautiful region of Chamarel, namely:
Les Ecuries de la Vieille Cheminée
Kamaya (hunting reserve)
Hermitage (hunting reserve)
Bon Courage (hunting reserve)
We take the opportunity to warmly thank the owners and managers of the above private reserves and of course, the owners and managers of the following private reserves who have supported since the beginning, and still faithfully supporting Royal Raid: Casela, Yemen, Jet Ranch and Bel Ombre (Heritage).
The 2018 changes are mainly on the part of the route after the Parakeet station. We invite you to discover at first the key points on the pages of the different races RR37 and RR70 on our website. This new route is more undulating with beautiful sceneries, still offering great challenge in a wonderful friendly atmosphere.
Thank you for your support and participation.
