Overview

. Dicovering the Morne Brabant - The slave route The Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of the Morne. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary for runaway slaves and is a strong cultural and patrimonial symbol for every Mauritian. Being on private land, Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It includes a multitude of endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, and its red flaming flower. The hike to the summit of Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the homogeneity of the group. Once on top, we discover the breathtaking panoramic views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island.

We picked a cloudy day although it was still very hot. The walk for the first part is ok and there were a few idiots in flip flops, but we'd advise your walking shoes, as quite a lot of loose rocks. Fantastic viewing areas as...More

We went on an excursion to Le Morne mountain. The view from the top is beautiful. It took us 1 hour and 45 minutes to climb only. But it was worth it.

This is an amazing Hike. A 2 hour hike with some challenging vertical climbs. Although definitely reachable for an amateur. The views all the way up are simply breathtaking. You see the whole South Coast and I would recommend stopping at each of the look...More

Time up is probably about right. There's pictures of what it looks like for you to decide. I didn't feel it was particularly worth it going up to the green gate. Its nice and something to do that's not a beach, that's all... More

The trip is well worth doing, the first half of the walk is relatively easy, although it is uphill. It does get a bit harder once you have gone through the gate, but only ascending a rocky path and is quite safe! The views... More
