National Park Nature / Park
Explore the range of Mauritian plant and animal life at Black River Gorges National Park, a protected area that includes the last of the nation's rainforest. Encompassing around two percent of the country's total space, the area is formally protected from further deforestation after being proclaimed a national park in 1994. Spot rusa deer and wild pigs, along with endemic species like the Mauritian flying fox, Mauritius kestrel, and the pink pigeon. The variety in the wildlife comes with the area's diversity of climate and habitat, with humid upland forest, dry lowland forest, and heathland all here.

  • Spectacular views with a great view at mirador. Lots of vegetation and fauna. Beware of the monkeys if you are taking food since they are very clever and open backpacks and bags to pick up the food, although they are not dangerous if not bother them

  • Really gorgeous views of the falls and the surrounding landscape dominated by the splendid nature, including also the view on Alexandra Falls. You can also meet some cute monkeys looking for food. Short and worthwhile hike combined with other stops on the tour in the South of the island.

  • Great park. Good for hiking. Not that many path options but it's still quite beautiful and worth it. Still, for safety purposes I wouldn't advise going there on or following rainy days.
  • Lovely place to come if you'd like to see outdoor greenery waterfalls and beautiful landscapes
  • Great park, not many paths, but those that exist are beautiful. Long lonely walks, nice riverbeds, mountains... perfect. My favorite: parakeet trail lower part.
  • Good for hiking.. Amazing views
  • Best nature park in Mauritius. In the month of April, you can enjoy the red guavas.
