About the Tour - Chamarel: The Ultimate Discovery Tour

Ebony Forest

While making your way through the native forest, you will get to admire the native fauna of Mauritius, such as fruit bats, swiftlets and tropicbirds soaring high along the mountains’ ridgeline. The two mid-canopy walkways through the ebony forest will give you the surreal sensation of floating through one of the best-preserved forests. You can have a guided tour with one of the experienced staff members or if you prefer, wander along the walkways on your own where you will encounter informative signs to guide the way.

The Sublime Point offers a breathtaking view of Le Morne Brabant and the surrounding bays where you can also see a lot of tropical birds, including the white-tailed tropicbird. An elevated footbridge leads you to the heart of the habitat with geckos, birds and other endemic species. At the end of the bridge, you will reach a platform that allows you to contemplate an excellent panoramic view of the island, including the southwestern, western and central plateau regions.

Chamarel Waterfall

As part of the Chamarel: The Ultimate Discovery Package , you will have the chance to view the gorgeous Chamarel waterfall. By many it is considered the most beautiful waterfall of Mauritius. Three distinct streams plunge down almost 100 meters from the St. Denis River, down into the gorge. The sight of this impressive waterfall against the scenic forests and mountains is truly breathtaking.

Seven Coloured Earth

The “Seven-Coloured Earth” of Chamarel is a geological curiosity and a major tourist attraction of Mauritius. It is a small (7500 m2) area of strikingly bare landscape located within a large, dense forest. The earth is particularly unusual as it was created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures, allowing the earth to form beautiful patterns of colour on the exposed hillsides. When visiting the park, you will be able to walk between the many sand dunes and contemplate this unique sight.

Rhumerie de Chamarel

Situated in the South West part of Mauritius, in the heart of a fertile valley lies the Rhumerie de Chamarel which is surrounded by vast sugarcane plantations growing in harmony with pineapples and other tropical fruits.

Displaying a unique sense of warmth and authenticity, the Rhumerie de Chamarel Distillery welcomes visitors for an all-encompassing tourism experience ranging from a guided visit of the distillery and rum tasting to a tasty meal at L’Alchimiste, its own stylish and creative “A la Carte” restaurant. As a visitor of the Rum Distillery you can marvel at its unique design which blends harmoniously with the spectacular surroundings where wood, natural stone and water provide a sense of communion with nature.

Curious Corner Chamarel

Curious Corner as the name states is for those of us who like snooping around and have an ever-probing mind, as we all naturally are.

If ever, you are tired of relaxing on the warm sandy beaches of Mauritius and you want to give your brain a stimulating workout, then the Curious Corner is definitely the place to go.

It is a fascinating, fun and social excursion into the wonderful world of optical illusions, which will leave you quite literally, not believing your eyes!
