About
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 viewpoints 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” because 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 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.

Great hiking through the prime forest in Mauritius! We set off from the entrance at Petrin. After around 2,5 hours we came to the Machabee viewpoint, just to be rewarded with a great view to the whole national park and the ocean in the distance. Mainly we walked the forest on the wide, macadam path, but part of the it led us through the narrow path which went up and down the hills, crossing couple springs (one turning to a waterfall) - but it was all well marked with yellow plastic signs.
