Destination France: a focus on Réunion Island
Right in the heart of the Indian Ocean, 800 km east of Madagascar, Réunion Island offers an infinite number of amazing sites and contrasting landscapes.
It is like a mountain resting on the surface of the Indian Ocean, just like the Piton des Neiges, rising to 3,069 meters. An active volcano, the famous Piton de la Fournaise wakes up periodically, and you can admire the magnificence of the lava flow in total safety. At the crossroads of several continents, Réunion will delight you with the natural, warm welcome of its population, and the variety of its cuisine. The local food’s spicy flavors, from curry to rougaille, will gratify even the most gourmet of appetites.
South African citizens don’t need a visa for short stay.
