There was a time when ebony trees dominated our island Mauritius. It was the habitat of many unique bird species. Today, we only have a very small native ebony forest with endemic birds remaining. All animal and nature lovers out there, brace yourself for magnificent fauna and a distinctive birding experience in our indigenous forest of Chamarel, Mauritius. You will encounter some of the world’s rarest birds like Pink Pigeon, Echo Parakeet, Grey-white eye, Paradise Flycatcher, Kestrel, and Black Bulbul.  

It will be a journey of discovery in nature. Among those ebony trees, there is a door leading to a new way of life. You will have the opportunity to briefly visit the museum where our natural history is told.
The earth plays music for those who listen. And the Ebony Forest Reserve Chamarel gives you a space to navigate and listen to this music.

  • Just sublime
A nice welcome upon arrival from the staffs. Had lunch at the takamaka restaurant Good food. Good price. Then went for the visit in the jeep. Again very friendly staffs and very knowledgeable. Staffs well trained. The flycatcher raised walkway was awesome. You walk in the forest on a raised walkway. We were among so many ebony trees and we were lucky to see the endemic birds such as the flycatcher, gey white eye , bulbul. Then we moved to the sublime point. It was just WOW. Cant miss this one. The view that u see there, u cant even capture it on camera. Just enjoy the view with ur eyes.

  • Nice half day out walking
I had good views of 2 Mauritius endemic birds - Mauritius bulbul and Mauritius flycatcher. The paths are steep, but worth the walk to see the birds. You can get a jeep ride to save you the walk.
