Important Update

COVID-19 is being used as a phishing lure by cybercriminals and we expect to see an increase in fake news as long as publicity around the virus remains. Cybercrimimals are currently using Clever Dodo to build credibility and entice users into clicking on links, appealing to the generosity of people and tricking people into thinking they can place orders online through our shop.

Please note the following:

1. Our online shop is currently closed
2. We have never sold on Facebook; we are aware others are using the "Clever Dodo" name to sell items on Facebook but that's not us. Our Facebook page is so beware of the fakes
3. We are NOT asking for donation of any kind

Stay safe, be alert and don't get caught out!

In 2011, I was planning my return to Mauritius and therefore needed quite a lot of information on how to do specific things eg finding a house to live in, getting a car, customs process for my belongings etc. There was hardly anything on the internet. I've had to ask friends/family and sometimes they would know and other times they would have to go ask other people and relay the information back to me (bless them).

I blogged about the things I was doing along the way to help others out there and decided to launch this as a place where Mauritians, expats and tourists would find the information they were after.

What we have today is a community of people who are tied together by Mauritius in some way or the other.

Going forward, I see this as a place we can all use to advance our society while maintaining a very good balance with mother nature so that further generations can enjoy this fantastic little island we call paradise.
