Hike on the majestic slave trail in the South Western Coast of Mauritius, and enjoy spectacular ocean views.
Hiking on the path of the runaway slaves at Le Morne Brabant has to definitely be among the top things to do while staying in Mauritius. Situated at the extreme Southwestern tip of Mauritius, this rocky peninsula has a summit which covers an area of over 12 hectares (30 acres), and is about 556 meters above sea level.
About the activity:
The half day Le Morne Brabant hiking trail invites nature lovers and adventurers for an exciting hiking experience in the southernmost tip of the island. The hike can last between three to four hours, whereby you will be guided by the professionals with EFR/WFA certification. You may also get access to the second part of the mountain which is only accessible through authorized guides.
Deep into the woods, you will encounter the exquisite sea bird, Paille en Queue, and indigenous plant species that will captivate your attention. As you advance, you will find yourself in the dry and rough terrain of the mountain, which can be quite challenging. The heat will elevate and thus it is recommended to take a sunhat or cap and water with you. It is also important that you are well-equipped with sunscreen and good trekking shoes due to the uneven tracks.
As you progress, you will find a gigantic, basalt rock peak dotted with caves which once harbored runaway slaves. You will have to climb a rocky hill with equipment provided by the authorities which can be quite a challenging experience. As you gradually move to the summit you can easily spot the huge metal cross which marks the highest accessible point. Take this chance to marvel at the absolutely stunning views of Ile aux Benitiers, Le Morne beach, and the spectacular surrounding areas.
