Who are we?

Beneath the watchful gaze of Le Morne Brabant, where emerald waves crash against volcanic cliffs, the primal pulse of the hunt beats strong in the soul of the Lionel family. We are not merely hunters; we are custodians of a legacy, etched in the weathered hands of my father, whom I followed since a young age and taught me that nature can be respected through hunting.

In 2003, I quit everything in France and decided to create the first hunting company in the tourism industry, the now company which is Lionel Passion Guide, a pioneer in  hunting tourism industry, emerged from the heart of the island, blazing a trail through uncharted territories. My wife, Kathleen, joined the crusade in 2006, her fierce spirit and unwavering support a constant flame amidst the wilderness.

Over a thousand hunters, hailing from 24 nations, have walked beside me, sharing the unspoken language of the Hunt.

Each step in their journey, each triumph and misstep, etched itself onto my own. I am a student of the wilderness, perpetually learning from my guests and understanding nature.

Lionel Passion Guide is not a business, it is a tapestry woven from passion, expertise, and the enduring spirit of family. It is the echo of my father’s voice, the warmth of Kathleen’s gaze, and the thrill of the chase echoing through generations. We are more than guides, we are lionizers of legacy, igniting the flame within dedicated hunters, one heartbeat at a time.

Come and experience the difference, come and hunt the Rusa Deer in Mauritius Island!!!
