An amazing place, unspoilt and natural- don't expect a footpath on the hikes! Lots of scrambling up steep inclines and walking over tree roots & rocks! But absolutely amazing and definitely would recommend going for the stunning views and sense of satisfaction at the top!!

This was my second visit to the Black River Gorges - it is just a stunning view and with the waterfalls in the background, it is very calming. An absolute must see if you are in Mauritius...

Our visit to the south-west of the island included driving through the area. It rained most of the day but none the less the views were spectacular and I would definitely go there again. It would be nice to spend some time walking in the area to get a much closer view of the wildlife and vegetation

The national park is breath taking. The roads are winding and I thought a little narrow. Their dams are filled to the brim but with there rainfall I can understand why. People will love the scenery

Amazing spectacle given that our image of Mauritius was of white sandy beaches and blue seas. A waterfall, volcanic crater and amazingly coloured lava rock not even spoilt by the local monkey stealing our granddaughters sandwich!

Did a tour through the hotel we sere staying at with my girlfriend (Hilton Mauritius). Saw a few things: 1. Alexandra Falls - the viewpoint doesn't give you a particularly good view so a bit of a waste. 2. Black Gorges - a nice view but nothing special. 3. Chamarel waterfall - really beautiful and a god viewpoint- some great... More
