Embark on the Black River Gorges hike in Mauritius to experience luxuriant rainforests, an array of fauna, cascading waterfalls and breath taking panoramic views of the island.

Hiking through Mauritius’ Black River Gorges is like stepping into a lush, vibrant paradise. It’s a nature-lover’s dream, with dense forests, colourful plants, and critters that call this place home. As you stroll along the paths, you’ll be serenaded by the chirping birds and the rustling leaves, it’s like a secret symphony just for you.

Keep an eye out for the rare Mauritian kestrel, a special feathered friend that might make an appearance. And don’t miss the waterfalls! They’re like nature’s own refreshing showers.

The real showstopper is at the Black River Peak viewpoint. When you get there, take a deep breath and let your eyes feast on the stunning view. Emerald hills meet the deep blue of the Indian Ocean, and for a moment, you’re part of this amazing masterpiece. Hiking the Black River Gorges isn’t just a walk – it’s a journey into a world where nature paints its own masterpiece, and you get a front-row seat.

Your Local Host:


I was born and raised in Mauritius, since an early age I have been involved in tourism. Through the years I’ve seen Mauritius grow as a world-renowned destination for our beautiful sea side resorts and pristine beaches and that is all, pretty much.

As a local, I knew there was more Mauritius could offer to a traveller. I wanted to introduce Mauritius to visitors as a local friend would do, the authentic way so that they too could see all the beauty in nature, traditions and landscapes that only locals know.
