Discover Le Parc National des Gorges de la Rivière Noire

In the west of Mauritius, the Black River Gorges National Park covers an area of 25 mi². It can be reached from Petrin, 2 mi from Grand Bassin, or from Chamarel. There are several trails that make it possible to discover the wealth of the region. Although there are only 9 animal species here, there are 150 varieties of plants. The forest is rich with trees, such as the bois de natte, the camphor and the tambalacoque. As for birds, there is the Common Kestrel, the Réunion Olive White-eye and the Echo Parakeet (or Mauritius Parakeet). A look-out point has been created at the top of the reserve. From here you can admire Alexandra Falls and take advantage of the view of the southern part of the island.
