Black-River Gorges Hike MUR 726

The Black River Gorges National Park is the largest protected forest of Mauritius, providing over 80 km of trails, lush vegetation and a large density of endemic and narrow-endemic species.

The Black River Gorges National Park, 67.54 km² of pure, wild, nature. The heart of Mauritius island, home of many endemic species, both animal and floral. It offers a great discovery of the nature of the island. During this hike we will discover different view-points from which we can contemplate different parts of the park and its surroundings.

Half-way up our climb, we discover the “Mare aux Joncs Gorge” that we like to call the  “Bats Valley” be-cause of the thousands of Mauritan Fruit-Bats we can observe there. On top of our ascension, at 400m above sea level we get an amazing sight on the West- Coast, its lagoons and beautiful villages amountains.

From there, we start our back  down until the black-river where we  can stop to enjoy a nice swim before continuing and reach back our starting point, where we’ve met a few hours earlier.
