    It looks like you had a very good trip nimrod-100. I never knew about rusa hunting on Mauritius and always thought if I did the hunt it would be in New Caledonia but I think now if I ever take the plunge Mauritius would get my vote.

    Hello Lionel,

    I am glad you receive good feedbacks on your post. They are well deserved.

    And for all of you reading my post, I can only confirm what has been written about hunting with Lionel, fun, easy going and different. Do not hesitate, you will not be upset.
    A few pics: my son's atypical (which is what he was looking for), my daughter's wild boar (one shot 164 meters standing, not bad) and a nice gold medal stag.

    Again, thank you Lionel, we had a lot of fun.

    And, guys, go for it!

    With friendly regards,

    JP, Marie and Isaac

    Many thanks for your comment it's nice and I will remember for a long time your daughter's perfect shot at 164 meters in the heart of a Mauritian wild boar, Crazy!
    HIS FATHER AND HIS BROTHER WASN'T THAT BAD TOO... lol
    This is why I do and I love this job: to meet people and make their little dream come true.

    It is a wonderfull experience to hunt rusa deers combined with a family holidays. Lionel make this possible in a natural paradise as its the Mauritius Islands. I definitely plan to do it in the future with a reliable outfitter like Lionel.

    What about those wild pigs Lionel ??? Do you have also any pics of boars hunted in Mauritius ??' What size they reach ???

    Thanks a lot for your post and many thanks for your interesst.
    Yes the boar are a newly recognised specie by the S.C.I (like the rusa deer) because of their pure genetic, they was never crossed with other deer species since they was introduced in 1639.
    Concerning the wild boar they can weight an average of 55 kilos but we shot some very interessting one. They can have some very good tusk and the bigest one shot by my guest was a 35 Cm long (incredible) and he's number one on the S.C.I.
    I will try to put some pictures.
    Cheers and thanks again for all.

    Fishing and Hunting in Mauritius with Wild Outdoor Adventures

    Join host Cliff Tulpa on the African island nation of Mauritius for another high definition hunting adventure with Lionel Berthault of Le Chasseur Mauricien. In this episode we fish for Blue Marlin with our French guest landing a 185 lb beauty that the chefs at Movenpick Resort later turn into delightful table fare. After a quick cooking segment of Palm Hearts and Prawns, a traditional Mauritian dish, the action heats up with two successful Java Deer harvests.

    Hello from Sweden,

    What do I add to the package since I like to bring my kids along too. They are 6 and 7 and I saw that the Mövenpick has rooms with 2 bedrooms.

    Thanks/Stephan
