The Black River Gorges National Park in Mauritius is home to a stunning collection of indigenous plants and birds. September to January is the flowering season, the best time to visit the park of the Black River Gorges National.
On the path, take time to notice the trees of special matte wood and shaped like an umbrella, often draped with orchids, ferns and lichens. And watch carefully for bats brown fruits and our indigenous rare birds: Pigeon and Rose Mauritius Kestrel.
It was the idea of the National Parks and Conservation Services to make the park accessible for hiking. The trails are designed completely care for your convenience – you can take the way of the valley and to floundering into the river for cooling off!
