The largest National Park in Mauritius is the Black River Gorges National Park, which covers 17,000 acres and accounts for 2% of the island’s total area. Within this park, visitors can explore a variety of landscapes, including rolling hills, valleys, rivers, waterfalls, and rainforests, all of which serve as habitats for native and endangered species.

For hiking enthusiasts, the Black River Gorges National Park offers over 50km of trails to choose from. Whether you prefer an easy stroll through the forest or a more challenging trek, there are options for everyone. At the park’s highest point, known as Black River Peak, you can enjoy breathtaking views from an elevation of 828 meters above sea level, making it the highest point in Mauritius. Additionally, Alexandra Falls, accessible by following the signage, provides stunning views of both the waterfall and the surrounding park.

One of the park’s main attractions is its unique range of flora and fauna, some of which can only be found within its borders. With over 300 species of flowering plants and nine bird species exclusive to Mauritius, birdwatching hikes led by local biologists are available for a more immersive experience. The wildlife in Black River Gorges National Park includes the Mauritian flying fox, wild boar, macaque monkeys, and deer, so be sure to bring your camera along for some memorable encounters!
