The Mascarin National Botanical Conservatory


An honourable mission: protecting and safeguarding Réunion plant species.

Located in the western hills of Réunion, in the municipality of Saint-Leu and in the heart of an old farm, the Mascarin National Botanical Conservatory is the result of joint mobilisation of scientists and elected officials, passionate about the island and its remarkable heritage.

Take a stroll to admire the richness and diversity of Réunion flora and you can observe many native species such as coffee, tropical fruits, cacti, orchids and ferns. Access is given to nine hectares of gardens arranged into seven collections.

The conservatory also offers the possibility of permanent and temporary exhibitions. Guided visits, educational activities, light snacks and a gift shop are also to be found.
