We visited the Black River Gorges National Park on different days during our two week stay in Mauritius. On the first occasion, we took advantage of the facilities at the visitors' centre at Petrin. There are plenty of shaded picnic tables next to the car park, and the nearby toilets were well-maintained. it was great to see the pink pigeons... More

A nice walk through the hills, with perfect views! Arrange a taxi for a day, this should be around 3000-3500 Roepies.

Although it was misty the views from the gorge are spectacular. Be careful of the monkeys though, unfortunately some visitors have been feeding them and they look to see if you have anything for them. Well worth a stop on a tour of this area.

Crossed Black River Gorges National Park from entrance La Marie to entrance Black River, and hiked to Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire on another occasion. Both routes are pretty easy and enjoyable. Some road signs were missing. Could not find entrance signs for Paille-en-queue trail, though.

This park would be on my must do in Mauritius list.We went for the hiking and birding and hoped to see some endemic birds.We saw the Echo Parakeet but that was all.From a birding perspective it was disappointing but from a hiking perspective it was fantastic.The routes are well marked and well trodden,take plenty of food and water.Enjoy !!!!

Decided to do some trekking on my last day. This National Park rates high with TripAdvisor, so I decided to see it for myself. Not much here but bugs and more bugs. I went for the view point but only saw more bugs ravishing my bare skin. It reminded me of the summer mosquitoes in Alaska! I couldn't get off... More
