Mauritius ranked 7th safest country for women travellers
Mauritius

A recent report by Dubai-based Nomad Capitalist, which is engaged in global citizenship, has ranked Mauritius in its Top 10 safest countries for women travellers.

It analysed safety, gender equality, and living standard.

“These are the countries where you can walk alone at night or talk to strangers without feeling worried for yourself,” it claimed.

Topping the ranking is Iceland, followed by Finland, Portugal, Austria, Slovenia and Japan.

“People often have prejudice about African countries, believing that women’s safety is undermined. And once they hear that Mauritius is not a dangerous country, they get stunned. But if you take a look at the Global Peace Index, Mauritius is actually one of the safest countries,” it said.

Some excerpts of what Nomad Capitalist had to say about:

Safety

  1. You can spend the whole day on the beach, climb the volcano, or explore hiking trails in a jungle.
  2. Mauritians are proud of their country and will try to make your stay memorable. If you have any problems, they will always be there for you.
  3. The only thing you should remember is to respect their culture. For instance, Mauritius doesn’t have nudist beaches, and sunbathing topless is not allowed.
  4. Also, local temples are sacred places for locals. If you visit one, avoid touching anything. So, as long as you show respect, everything will be fine.

Gender Equality

  1. Mauritius women are indeed independent. They go to the university, get a job, and have more financial freedom than they did in the past.
  2. However, the Mauritius society is conservative and family-oriented, which dictates how women should behave.
  3. The good news is that the younger generation is more vocal. They are politically active, brave, and stand up against discrimination.

Life Standard

  1. Mauritius has an upper-middle-class economy. The island has strong tourism and agriculture sectors, with more than half of the land being cultivated.
  2. It has one of the most powerful passports in Africa.
