L'île Maurice, surtout connue pour ses plages, possède également de beaux atouts dans les terres comme la cascade de Chamarel. Son débit, ici, est gonflé par les nombreuses pluies ayant lieu en cette saison (janvier 2018). Le cyclone Berguitta frappera d'ailleurs l'île deux jours après cette prise de vue.
