Mauritius wiki - the full list

Wikipedia came and change everything, and eventually Wikis became an integral part of the Internet. I'm not going into the debate of wikis versus traditional encyclopedias since this has been done to death and adding one small pebble in the ocean will probably go unnoticed.

To be honest, my research has shown that there are not many wikis devoted to Mauritius.

That's pretty much the only one you need to bother about. I've also seen a couple of websites that claim to be "Mauritius travel wikis" but have absolutely no relevant information and focus solely on plugging their "mind-blasting deals" in your face. Make sure your anti-virus software is updated if you do want to check out these websites as they also look extremely shady.
