Our trip to the Black River Gorge National Park was great the mountains the gorge and the waterfalls were very spectacular. Sadly for us it was heavy rain so the gorge was mostly in the mist but we did catch a few glimpses between showers when the sun came out and it was awesome. If you love scenery and are... More

Trails turn into seriously muddy torture in winter. The black river peak trail is particularly hideous. Great in summer (have done then also) but avoid the trails in the wet rainy season.

There are only a very few places from where you can have a great view over the valleys to the beaches, but even so, it is a gorgeous park.

We just visited a very tiny portion of this national park. There was one view point which gives an overview of the national park. There was a waterfall in the distant amidst all the green.. There were trekking trails as well as it is a popular place for trekkers. Had a wonderful breather from the site seeing.

Very nice national park, if you have enough time do some hiking, it is worth. Stunning view from couple of seeing points.

Black River Gorges National Park is a wonderful place in Mauritius with serene air and high content of oxygen. When you go this place you can watch thick jungles without any wild animals. Good for half day outing or family lunch session with BBQ. Must visit for travelers of Mauritius.

Beautiful place to visit lovely well kept forested area. Lovely flowing stream. Good photo opportunities for tourists who love nature. Warning though lather yourself in mosquitoe repellent as there are lots of mosquitoes. Also, wear appropriate footwear to walk in.

When your based in the North of the island you should visit the south and in particular this Park as its a different Mauritius . Great scenery and views sadly it did rain heavily on the day we went which restricted the views but never the less still a very worthwhile visit.
