Discover La réserve de Bras d'Eau Mauritius

In the east of Mauritius, the Bras d'Eau Reserve stretches out over an area of 1,235 acres. It takes its name from the mass of water in the shape of an arm that traverses it. Originally made up of the Bras d'Eau and Mare-Sacelle Nature Reserves, it has been listed as a national park since October 2011. It brings together various animal and plant species in an area that mainly consists of forests. The park is notably home to trees that rise 40m tall, such as the Australian White Eucalyptus and the Florida Mahogany. In terms of birds, you may come across a coq des bois or a flycatcher; and in terms of animals, you'll probably see some monkeys or wild boar. You may also see a few ruins in the park, such as those of an old sugar factory and a lime kiln. A number of trails make it possible to visit the reserve. Picnics tables have been placed about here and there for your convenience.
