Hike up the famous Le Morne Brabant

Do you have a longing to climb every mountain, ford every stream and go the distance? Then the challenging yet rejuvenating Le Morne Brabant mountain hike is your ideal Mauritius activity. Located on the Le Morne peninsula in the island’s South-Western region, this UNESCO World Heritage site is more than a breathtaking peak, it’s an icon of Mauritian heritage that resonates to this day.

Home to an incredible variety of flora and fauna, including the Trochetia Boutonania emblem of Mauritius, the park covers more than 30 acres of wilderness so beautiful it will blow your socks off. You’ll hike through meadows, forests and along rocky pathways dotted with unexplored caverns, steep slopes and dramatic overhangs. This is an ideal spot for any would-be rock climbers to test their mettle!

If you’re not keen on the idea of a long walk, let us convince you as to why we think this is a must, it’s pretty simple – the view. Once you’ve seen all the gorgeous wildflowers, colourful animals and the sombre yet achingly gorgeous mountain itself, you’ll be treated to the most enchanting sight of all at the top. Marked by a large metal cross, the summit of the height opens up the whole island below your feet, complete with vistas of Ile aux Benitiers, Le Morne beach and the nearby lagoon. You’ll feel literally and spiritually on top of the world.
