Le Morne Brabant, Le Morne
(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A great experience. Very good hiking trail to the first plateau. To actually create for everyone. great views and sitting area. Dananach rise only with cable possible. Unbegingt take appropriate equipment. Best early venture promotion otherwise it becomes too hot.

  • Easy hike that rewards you with amazing views of the two bays. Regular tennis shoes are enough. Do not fall into the trap of the "guide" requirement... the path is well indicated! 
  • A wonderful place where the vegetation is beautiful. We are regularly and heaven for us is here. A must see if you come to Maurice
