The national park is home to an amazing collection
of indigenous plants and birds. The best
time to visit Black River Gorges National Park is during the flowering
season between September and January.
Along the way, take your time to notice the peculiar
and umbrella-shaped Bois de Natte trees, often draped with orchids,
ferns and lichens. And keep a watchful eye, for brown fruit bats
and our rarest native birds: the Pink Pigeon and Mauritius Kestrel.
It has been an initiative by the National Parks
and Conservation Services to make the park accessible for hiking.
Trails have been carefully traced for your convenience - you may
want to follow the path up the valley or down to splash in the river
to refresh yourself!
For more information on hiking, call the Ministry
of Tourism on (230) 210 2688.
There is the South West tour available where a minibus will pick you up from your hotel or bungalow. Click here for more information.
