Geographic Location Mauritius is situated 20 degrees South of the Equator and on longitude 57.5 degrees East, approximately 1800 km East of Durban and 6000 km West of Perth. A central plateau rises to a level of about 600 metres and is marked by deep extinct volcanic craters, cris crossed by rivers, streams and waterfalls. Bordering this tableland are three mountain ranges with fantastically-shaped masses of basalt that testify to the volcanic origin of the island. From these mountains, several peaks emerge: Piton de La Riviere Noire (828 metres), Pieter Both (823 metres) and Le Pouce (812 metres). A few uninhabited islets are scattered around the main island, and Rodrigues, its 10th district lies 600 km north east of Mauritius.
