Fodor's Review

Located in the hilly south-western region of the island, Black River Gorges is the largest protected forest of Mauritius and a sanctuary for about 300 species of plants. It's also home to about 50 km (31 miles) of gorgeous hiking trails. The park has four access points: the Black River entrance and Case Noyale entrance on the west coast; La Marie entrance in Plaine Wilhems, and Chamouny entrance in the south. If you are not keen to explore the deeper trails, you can easily stroll closer to the visitor center and make the most of the kiosks, ideal for picnics.
