Explore the Southwest of Mauritius

Begin your 8-hour day of adventure on Mauritius with convenient pickup at your hotel anywhere on the island. Pickup time varies according to your location, please see Additional Information section for details. 

Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle with your guide and group of 15 people or fewer and relax during the journey. Your guide will provide commentary on the passing sights, including native flora and fauna. Pass through Le Morne, La Prairie, and Macondé on the way to Chamarel in the Rivière Noire District. 

Arrive at Chamarel Waterfall, the country's tallest, which plunges 328 feet (100 meters) against a natural backdrop and makes for impressive photos. Next stop is the famous Seven Coloured Earth, a rainbow of striated volcanic rocks. 

Continue to the La Rhumerie de Chamarel distillery, where you will sample the spirits and enjoy a traditional Mauritian 3-course lunch. 

Following lunch, travel to a viewpoint over Black River Gorges National Park, then the secluded Grand Bassin Lake and the enormous volcanic crater Trou aux Cerfs.

End your full day of exploration with drop-off back at your hotel.

Excellent day out. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide (Natalie) and good driver. Packed a lot into the day without feeling rushed. Lunch (included) at the Rhumerie was very nice as well. Highly recommend as a good way of seeing the south West of the island.

a great day out. it rained all day but this did not spoil this visit in any way. The guides paschal and samir were excellent. the visit to the rum factory was great lots to taste but a little rushed. the waterfall and scenery were beautiful.Another fantastic lunch. A trip i would strongly recommend but the views i hope would be better on a clearer day.

The tour was amazing. The tour guide Melissa I think was her name was awesome/friendly. The driver was great and made me feel safe due to the narrow roads. During the tour I knew what to expect due to the information giving in advance which made me more comfortable. Go for it if ever in Mauritius!
