Why Young Families are Moving to Mauritius

Most new parents understandably find their priorities changing drastically after starting a family. When you have children, the things that were significant to you when you were an individual or a couple lose their significance.

Because of this, many fresh start families have chosen to uproot and relocate to the exotic island of Mauritius. Many parents find the change to be beneficial, despite the fact that it can be difficult to uproot their children from their established social networks and educational institutions.

Many parents have already relocated to Mauritius and have no plans to return, as evidenced by the many comments posted about the island nation on various Facebook groups. Adding to the already high quality of life on Mauritius is the opportunity to raise children outside, away from screens.

Here we outline the top six reasons why Mauritius is a fantastic place for new families to call home. Of course, these are only a few of the countless other reasons you should consider traveling to Mauritius.The people of Mauritius are known far and wide as some of the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world. Many people will go out of their way to inquire about the backgrounds of complete strangers. On the island, you can find a dependable babysitter or nanny who will care for your children as if they were their own.

You shouldn't have any trouble communicating with locals because while French and Creole are more common, most also speak English. The benefits of learning French on your own are numerous.

Foreign students are flocking to Mauritius's top-notch private schools and universities. Many families who are thinking about moving do so in order to be closer to a good school. You can rest assured, though, because there are many options for your kid's education that will be a good fit for his or her personality and passions. While some schools promote tolerance and a well-rounded education, others stick closely to a predetermined set of lessons. Talking to a variety of schools can help your child gain admission to the best possible school for him or her (and other parents, if possible).

Keep in mind that if you only look at schools in the area where you plan on living, you may be stifling your options. The island's best schools are not all clustered in the hip "expat areas," but their importance should not be discounted. If you're looking for a good education, don't rule out these schools just because of the bus ride.

To start, the Climate

Those who are fortunate enough to call Mauritius home can attest to the benefits of the island's tropical climate. The beach or a walk in the woods in the late afternoon after school is relaxing in the summer, even with the heat and humidity.

Even in the milder winter months, which are by no means cold, water sports like sailing, scuba diving, swimming, and surfing can be enjoyed. Expats tend to prefer the west and north coasts of the island because they are less likely to be affected by the yearly trade winds and winter cold. 

Location, Number Two


If you look at a map, you'll notice that Mauritius is right in the middle of the ocean between the continents of Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe. South Africans and Europeans can relocate their families there without being too far away from their extended networks. Keeping in touch with grandma and grandpa is easy thanks to the city's proximity to Dubai (both are in the same time zone, GMT+4) and the fact that it is only two hours ahead of South Africa and most of Europe.

The island aspires to become an important transportation hub in the Indian Ocean, and its airport has won numerous awards. Multiple flights depart daily from Johannesburg, and there will soon be two flights per day to Dubai. The island is now accessible from all over the world with flights taking only 6 hours to Dubai and 4 hours to Johannesburg. Traveling with young children is no easy feat, so the fact that the trip to see relatives is not too long is sure to be appreciated.


Finally, the island's safety precautions must not be disregarded. As the continent's and the world's twenty-third safest country, Mauritius stands out as a wonderful option for a family vacation. Mauritius has been ranked as the 31st most peaceful nation in the world by the Global Peace Index 2022.

Third of the People

You shouldn't have any trouble communicating with locals because while French and Creole are more common, most also speak English. The benefits of learning French on your own are numerous.

Classrooms, Grade Four


Keep in mind that if you only look at schools in the area where you plan on living, you may be stifling your options. The island's best schools are not all clustered in the hip "expat areas," but their importance should not be discounted. If you're looking for a good education, don't rule out these schools just because of the bus ride.

5. Outside, in Nature


A lot of people picture blue skies and swaying palm trees when they think of the island. This is why new families should give Mauritius serious consideration. Mauritius's mild climate, miles of beaches, and abundance of natural forests make the island ideal for outdoor family activities.

The outdoors are a wonderful place to spend time, whether you're relaxing on a beach by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean or hiking to the top of one of the incredible mountain peaks. It's also comforting to know that there are no poisonous snakes in the area where I plan to hike.

The Safety Measures


The safety of the island is the final concern. As the continent's and the world's twenty-third safest country, Mauritius stands out as a wonderful option for a family vacation. Mauritius has been ranked as the 31st most peaceful nation in the world by the Global Peace Index 2022.

The crime rate is extremely low, and when it does occur, it tends to be a minor incident that is quickly and easily resolved. Law enforcement personnel are typically pleasant, polite, and proud of their jobs.

With its high standard of living, friendly locals, and proximity to both South Africa and Europe, Mauritius is a great place to start or grow a family. This may be the best (and last) choice you ever make, as evidenced by the experiences of those who came before you.
