Some background information about Mauritius
Is an African island country in the Indian Ocean, approximately 2,000 kilometres (1,100 nautical miles) off the southeastern coast of East Africa, east of Madagascar.
Arab sailors were the first to discover the uninhabited island, around 975, and they called it Dina Arobi. In 1507, Portuguese sailors visited the uninhabited island. A Dutch fleet, under the command of Admiral Van Warwyck landed at what is now Grand Port and took possession of the island in 1598, renaming the then uninhabited islands after Maurice, Prince of Orange.
France took control in 1715, renaming it Isle de France.
In 1810, the United Kingdom seized the island. Mauritius remained a primarily plantation-based colony of the United Kingdom until independence in 1968.
