This trek to the 7 waterfalls through the beautiful national park was beyond doubt one of the highlights of our family trip. The terrain is tough, slippery and intense at times but perfect for our kids who enjoyed every moment of the challenge (13, 10 & 8 years old). We had the charming Jay Tannoo (jaytannoo@yahoo.com) to guide us through... More

You would be better off trekking in the National Park then walking to this overcrowded, touristy area with the waterfall and coloured earth. Coloured earth is a lesson in how to create hype around what essentially looks like a quarry. The waterfall is pretty, but for a much more in-nature experience...go for a trek in the Black River Gorges National... More

Just spent half a day hiking through four of the seven waterfalls and had a blast. From the previous reviews, I contacted Jay Tannoo by email and scheduled a hike with him starting at 9:30 am. We brought nothing with us except a camera and change of clothes, which I left in the car. Jay graciously carried our picnic lunch... More

Visiting the Seven Cascades was the best part of our holiday. The highlights being hiking, swimming, picnicing and learning about the fascinating flora and fauna of this beautiful area. Finding a good guide is important. Jay Tannoo guided us on short notice after I found his details on a forum and contacted him. He is friendly and speaks several languages.... More

Through our hotel concierge we got the contact details of Prakash (tel 57608367) and agreed to meet him at the bus terminal in Henrietta the next day. He arranged everything for picnic; we just had to bring our swimming clothes, a towel, sun cream and insect repellent. The trip brought us to all waterfalls, twice we have been swimming. Prakash...

We spent today at the waterfalls with jay and "wow" doesn't even come close! The scenery is breath taking and the water is so cool and refreshing. Jay was just great. He lives locally, has been doing the tour for years and knows the waterfalls inside out. He's really passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife. He knows the safe places... More

Jay Tannoo accommodated us for a guided tour with only one day notice when we had a day spare at the end of our trip in Mauritius earlier this month. We had an amazing day! Jay was very knowledgeable and passionate about Mauritius, from the plants and flowers around us to the local and national history and politics of the... More

On the 16th October together with family and friends I made my second excursion to the falls and thanks to Jay had another wonderful day. Quite rightly, Jay is very passionate about preserving the natural status quo of the falls and preventing these become another tacky adventure park. Mervyn.

We visited the 7 cascades in early September 2014, and like many other reviewers took a guided tour with Jay (jaytannoo@yahoo.com / +230 57641372). The trek to the falls involves a steep decent through the forest so I'd strongly recommend using a guide and wearing sturdy footwear. Jay was very friendly and having grown up in the area had good...
