Savane des Esclaves

Park and garden in Les Trois-Îlets
12 Full-fare
  • The Savannah of the Slaves is a must-see site, a village of Memory and History, in the heart of a 3 hectare landscaped park.

  • After two years of deforestation, Gilbert built several huts made of ti-baume wood, reeds and cane leaves, reconstituting a "Village an tan lontan" and a small traditional Creole garden. It opened to the public in December 2004. In 2007, the Savane was expanded with a small museum of slavery, a medicinal garden and a cassava boiler. In 2009, Gilbert builds the Manioquerie (cassava and cassava flour factory) and welcomes groups for his Kako (cocoa) stick workshops. (See "Agenda" section)...
