About
Le Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of le Morne. Our team has been the first ever guides in 2004 to bring guests from all over the planet on this majestic rock. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary of the runaway slaves who would have committed suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain. Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is our floral emblem. Some steeper parts of the ascent will require the use of our hands to progress safely towards the top, where we’ll discover the breath-taking views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island !

    Découvrez Le Morne Brabant ! Une montagne du sud-ouest de l'Île Maurice, sur la péninsule du Morne. Déclarer patrimoine mondiale par l'UNESCO le 6 Juillet 2008, la montagne est le sanctuaire des esclaves marrons, qui se seraient jettés du haut de celle-ci pour préserver leur liberté et échapper à leurs maîtres. Se situant sur des terres privées, le Morne Brabant est l'une des montagnes les plus préservées de l'Île. On y retrouve une très haute densité, et variété, d'espèces endémiques, tels que la très rare, Trochetia Boutonania, notre emblème florale nationale.

I went on the Morne Brabant hike in November 2021 with Yanature. Arranged everything last minute while already on Mauritius and the whole process was quick and straightforward. After booking through the website, details were sent via WhatsApp - if you have a car the meeting point relatively easy to find and a good saving compared to paying for transport, though do check roadworks in advance (another party never made it to the meeting point as their driver took a route which was closed).

I'd definitely recommend experiencing some of the nature Mauritius has to offer besides the resorts. This hike was a memorable experience, amazing views and also a place of historical significance if you bother to read up just a little. I commend Yanature for trying to invite tourists to connect with the natural beauty the island.

Jeremie was the guide for the day and he did a wonderful job - a true local, happy to chat and talk about the island's culture and history. Also a very good climber and someone you will need to feel safe on the hike - it is quite a challenging route, and if you suffer from vertigo or are uncomfortable in steep terrain do consider another excursion instead. I was a solo traveller but joined 4 others on the hike that day. We did the hike in the afternoon heat, which added to the exercise element, but if you are planning in advance it's probably smarter to climb the Morne Brabant in the morning.

We did the hike in a group of 5 with our guide Jeremie, meeting at 5:50am. The booking process was very straight forward and the confirmation e-mail comprised an exact google maps location of the meeting point as well as useful information to prepare for the hike.

We definitely recommend taking the hike with Yanature and particularly Jeremie as there are some tricky passages where one may be happy to have a knowlegable and supportive guide at one's side. While it is quite a challenging route with some steep slopes I still recommend it to anyone with a basic level of fitness and agility. I myself suffer from vertigo but was able to comfortably do the hike / climb up the mountain with the useful tips and tricks of Jeremie.

Jeremie, a very experienced climber, did a great job. He prioritized safety and comfortability of the participants at all time while also being happy to chat and talk about the island's culture and history.

Once at the top, you are rewarded with breathtaking views over the island. We definitely recommend doing the hike with Yanature and also advise forcing oneself out of the bed for the 5:50am option when temperatures are still somewhat more forgiving. An additional upside is that once you are back from the 2-3h hike you still have an entire day left to explore the beautiful island.

We had a truly awesome time hiking this incredible mountain! Fabrice was our guide and made the hike smooth and easy, despite the second half of the trail looking very intimidating. Fabrice teaches you every technique to be able to climb the mountain face safely. The second half of the climb, which was roughly an hour, was very steep and required us to climb using both hands and feet. If you’re physically fit and have the right shoes (tennis shoes or hiking shoes only!) this part of the hike shouldn’t be a problem for you. Fabrice was with us every step of the hike and told us exactly where to place our hands and feet in the most tricky areas. When you reach the summit, you will literally be breath-taken at the views! Absolutely beautiful and incredible, they are once in a lifetime views that are worth the journey. 100/10 I highly recommend this trip with Fabrice if you are adventurous, love a little challenge, and desire to see the lovely Mauritius from a not-so-popular view.

Climbing Le Morne Brabant with Yanature was an excellent experience, and one which my wife and I will never forget. The views at the top were breathtaking and the hike was highly rewarding without being overly challenging. Our guide Dirk was extremely knowledgeable of the surrounding flora/fauna, and of the historical and cultural significance of this natural UNESCO world-heritage site (He is also a very talented photographer so we received some great photos as an added bonus). The supplementary pick-up shuttle was also straightforward and removed a lot of the stress of arriving on time, and the time-slots offered for hiking were great if you're looking to avoid the midday heat. Overall, I highly recommend doing this hike with Yanature, as they make the experience entertaining, informative, and offer great value for money. If we return to Mauritius in the future (which I truly hope we do), we'll certainly look to use them as guides for some of the other activities they offer!

The hike was very nice!
Fabrice- our guide was absolutely amazing, helped us a lot with the steeper parts of the hike, made us feel safe and calm even when the weather was not looking very good. Safety always first! The views are absolutely amazing, if we come back to Mauritius we might hike it again.
The first part is an easy walk, however the last third is more of an easy ferrata than a hike. With the slippery stones and mud a bit challenging, but nevertheless an amazing experience. Fabrice helped us a lot and is a true professional. Thanks again! :)

This was a bucket list hike and the views were worth every minute of the ascent. It’s a tough hike and made more challenging in the heat so I’d recommend going in the morning (6am) rather than in the afternoon.
Take at least 1.5L water and a snack, banana or fruit will do to keep energy levels high as it’s around 3 hours in total (up and down).
Our group’s guide Jérémie really made a huge difference. Very knowledgeable about the local history of Le Morne Brabant and knew the best routes both up and down the mountain making sure everyone was ok. He even managed to organise some refreshments for a few members of the group who were very fatigued. Would definitely recommend doing this hike with a guide and if you’re lucky enough to get Jérémie you’ll be in great hands!

We finally did the La Morne Brabant trip today, after thinking long and hard last night if we really want to get up at 4:30am to be at the meeting point at 5:50. Jérémie was soooooo nice to offer to push the trip to 6:15 or even 7:00, but strongly recommended to start as early as possible. So we really got up as early as never before on a holiday and… It was so worth it!!! I still cannot believe that he got my wife up and down that mountain, because: for us that was definitely a climb not a walk! When we saw what looks like a vertical wall from down I thought: no way we’re gonna make it up there. But with Jérémie’s help and instructions it was really no problem at all! And reaching the summit and taking in those amazing views! Soooooooo worth it! I would always do it again! But only with a guide like him. Without him we would have turned around after 200 meters…Thank you so much, Jérémie and Yanature!

We booked a morning tour to climb Le Morne, with our 2 children 16 and 18 y.o. Although we were picked up at 5 AM we never regretted getting up so early. Our guide Steeve was entertaining and caring and all his explanations about nature, trees, herbs and surroundings, made the trip more easy. He is a master in showing nice places for (panorama) pictures and he is always there to go the extra meter to help. We loved it and we are looking forward to come again to Yanature to discover more of the wonderful nature of Mauritius.

We started our tour on the sunrise. Our guide was William. He is really a professional.
Firstly I want to mention that William picked us up and we started our tour on the sun rise, that was the reason why it was not hot and the view was amazing. And the main thing is that there were no people at all, so we did not have to waste our time of waiting the people climbing up.
William was really very attentive to everyone in our group. I don’t speak French as most of the group were. But I did not feel any inconvenience, as William translated everything in English. He described us everything in details. About the plants, nature, history of Maritius. He explained us how to climb up, not to be injured or fall down. He is not only a perfect guide but very friendly and nice person. I wish him all the best as he is doing his job 10 from 10.

At first, I was planning to hike Le Morne Brabant myself. But after reading about how technical the hike is, I decided to book with Yanature. I'm so glad I did it! The hike is definitely doable but it SO MUCH more enjoyable with an experienced guide who can coach you through the more tricky sections. Our guide Manuel (Manu) was fantastic and I learned a great deal about the Mauritian culture and lifestyle. We had a great group of tourists from different parts of the world and it was enjoyable to hike with a diverse group of interesting people. This was one of the best experiences during my time in Mauritius, Highly recommended!
