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. 

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. 

Following the museum visit, enjoy a 30 minute guided tour of the Flycatcher raised walkway. You can take the safari jeep up to the Sublime Point and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Mauritian coastline. If you want to immerse even deeper in nature, continue a self-guided hike of the Ridgeline and the Piton Canot trails.  

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.

  • Pure nature, incredible views!
We went there in the morning, visited the coloured earth and the waterfalls as well. We started with the ebony forest where Lucy, the guide, explained us the efforts they are doing to keep the endemic species alive. She was incredibly knowledgeable and patience during the 30 min walk-explanation she accompanied us. Great views from the top, there is a trekking trail you can do to the peak, it takes about an hour

We've just come back from an amazing hike. We took the classic guided tour. From the time I booked the tour to the end of the hike I felt that the staff were there for me. I mentioned that I love reptiles and they made sure to give us a guide who would be able to give me a lot of information about the different reptiles around. The hike was enjoyable and the information about conservation and restoration was interesting and valuable. Our guide Avish went at a decent pace letting us decide how fast to go. It was the most complete tour we've had and I would recommend it to anyone. There are plenty of different choices for people to make, so if hiking is not your thing you might like to take a drive in a four by four, or if you don't have time, try the raised walkway. There is something for everyone and food for the hungry too.
