Based on the other reviews on tripadvisor, I left our hotel one afternoon to climb Morne Blanc thinking it would be incredibly easy - I told my wife I'd be back in an hour and set off with just a camera in hand, wearing an...More

It took us 40 minutes to reach the top from the tea factory parking lot. The climb was steep but the trail was pretty and being in the jungle is awesome all by itself. However, the heat and insane humidity will make every piece of...More

This is a lovely walk through the trees up the hill and you are rewarded with a lovely view along the coast when you get to the top. As the walk is all uphill it is obviously more strenuous than a flat walk. The view...More

This area is stunning. We drove through it with a guide who took us to some wonderful viewpoints and also took us to the Mission which was very interesting. It was very quiet and cool in the National Park and we loved it.

Morne Blanc is one of the must-visit places in Mahe if you truly want to experience the island life. It is a 1-hour hike which is quite easy and properly marked through a slightly dense forest. Once you reach the top, you will see the...More

It's about 50 minutes by car, through the centre of Victoria and then up Sans Souci Road. Morne Blanc and Copolia are in the same area as Casse Dent Trail and are better.
