The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features.

  • One of the most beautiful views I was able to enjoy so far! It is worth to 110% of the last part of the route is not so easy but if you're physically fit, enough to drink while you and good Footwear is only a question of volition's ;) and you definitely won't regret it! It also no entrance fee and a guide is not mandatory, but surely it could be helpful for some anxious people.

  • It is worth making this small road, which at first is not hard but the last sections are hard because you have to climb through the ropes, but I can assure that sentence deserves the views you have at the end and the adventure. If you go to Mauritius and the adventure like never miss this mini climbing!
