About Clever Dodo

Clever Dodo was born due to the lack of information on Mauritius and it started as a Q&A website to help tourists, expats and mauritians find accurate answers to their questions in a timely manner. The vision was to make information more accessible because most things in our lovely country are not documented and if you need to know about a specific procedure (eg how to tax your car), you'll have to ask friends and relatives who might have gone through this experience or hope they know someone else who can help.

For those who do not have such acquaintances, it can be very frustrating and discouraging. However with the support of our contributors, we have been able to tackle many subjects and look forward to helping more people in the years to come.

Over time, our website has evolved significantly and we also now have an online shop, a blog, a quiz for the oral test and we have more projects in mind to make life in Mauritius easier.

What is so special about Clever Dodo

It is the first website to offer information in the 3 main languages spoken in Mauritius : english, french and creole.

Although everyone in Mauritius can speak Creole, the language itself is not given its full merit and people will often use French or English instead. So here's the opportunity to be proud of your mothertongue and to promote it to the world.

Why the name Clever Dodo

Well the dodo holds significant value for us Mauritians and we'd like to think of our community members as a clever bunch of people who are sharing their knowledge and helping others.
