Doing an internship abroad in Mauritius is an opportunity to work in a paradisiacal setting. Here are the Top 10 anecdotes about Mauritius.

Did you know that the dodo was originally from Mauritius?
Unfortunately, it is now extinct and is the emblematic animal of the island! You can find it everywhere, in all its forms; stuffed animals, T-shirts … a good idea for a gift to bring back to your little brother or sister.
Did you know that each colour of the flag has its own meaning?
Red: the colour of the flaming ones.
Blue for the sky and the Indian Ocean.
Yellow for sand and sun.
Green for lush nature and sugar cane fields.
