This adventure from the Southern Reunion Island Tourist Office promises to be an unforgettable experience: an oxcart ride, which takes in a visit to the "Saga du Rhum" museum and includes cane juice and rum tasting and a Creole picnic in the museum garden.


- Sandy, our driver, meets you near a sugar cane field in Saint-Pierre. Once settled in the cart, you wander through the fields for about 2 hours until you get to Saga.

- You will see how Sandy speaks to and directs his two magnificent local oxen, a typical Reunion breed. He's full of tales about training his animals and he'll show you how the cane growers spend their days.

- Along the way you'll stop for photos, taste a piece of freshly cut sugar cane and watch the oxen team being yoked together. You will also learn about the best technique for cutting cane.

- Once back on the cart, you will be taken to Saga du Rhum where a one hour guided tour awaits you.

- When you reach the museum gardens you will be served a refreshing cane juice pressed before your eyes with a "fangourin" mill. The tour includes a short rum tasting opportunity.

- Then you will have a picnic in the museum garden. This will include typical Creole products.

- Another hour in the cart sees you back at your vehicle around 3pm.
