Hotel Maritim,dress code and trips

We will be staying at the Maritim at the beginning of July for 2 weeks. We will be accompanied by our 3sons and partners,ages 30-40. Was wondering what the dress code will be for my sons in the evenings (the girls are all right as they always dress up!)

Didn't bother asking the hotel as often their policy is not adhered to.

We were wondering whether to do any sightseeing trips and if so,where to. Does anyone have the name of a good car and driver,at times might need a minibus.

Husband is a keen birder and was planning to go to Black River Gorge. Any other areas worthwhile.

In other countries he has teamed up with a local birder but there doesn't seem to be this facility in Mauritius.

Slightly worried about the mozzies but will take all sensible precautions. Presume it's mainly when you leave the hotel that it's more of a problem.

Thanks in anticipation for any help and advice.

Mozzies: I will put on repellent for when you are in the hotel and when you go out and about.

Dress Code: Usually a smart top/shirt and jeans/ trousers for men at evening dinner. Mauritian hotels tend to be more relaxed than other places when it comes to dress code for evening meals.

Birdwatching: A few years ago there were guides at Black River Gorges but staff cut backs did away with them.
