The former is a giant weighing around 250 kg with the latter tipping the scales at 10 kg. This park also offers cave visits that are an experience in themselves.

Anand Mehta

I was travelling to Mauritius for the first time. As I was travelling alone and had nobody to accompany me, I was quite apprehensive about my stay. My friends, all seasoned travellers, recommended me getting an international travel insurance. I went with their suggestion and bought ICICI Lombard’s insurance for my trip. Although I didn’t make a claim, it was a comforting thought which enabled me to truly enjoy my vacations without worrying about a thing.


Rahul Jain

I was vacationing with my friends in Mauritius and was having a blast. One of my friends got injured though. Fortunately, we all had travel insurance from ICICI Lombard and were able to get him treated at a network hospital. He was back up in no time and we all went back to enjoy the remainder of our trip. We are all very happy at our decision of purchasing travel insurance and would strongly recommend ICICI Lombard to anyone travelling for holidays abroad.
