Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Walk up Le Morne Brabant mountain, one of Mauritius' most popular attractions and UNESCO world heritage site led by a certified climber as your guide on this small-group tour. Meet your guide at Le Morne Kitesurfing Beach for a safety briefing before you head to a lesser-known path up the mountain. The first section of the hike will be through the luscious rainforest. Make sure to keep an eye out for the phenomenal and rare endemic birds, and plants. Watch the golden sunrise and listen to the birds chirp as you climb up the mountain's four rock-scrambling sections. Along the way, your guide will tell you historical stories about Mauritius' past, and the significance of this important mountain. Pause at the famous Trochetia Boutoniona viewpoint, named after the island's national flower, for some healthy snacks and a breather. Take a moment to admire the breathtaking panoramic views surrounding you. Next, arrive at the 480-meter-high summit and try not to let your jaw drop too low as you see the intense beauty and nature Mauritius is so famous for. Snap a few well-deserved photos before heading back down the mountain.

Kevin was excellent at explaining how to track safely and guided the difficult parts of the trail. Hiking with guide is definitely worth it especially if you are novice hiker since the trail has some tricky parts. Kevin was knowledgeable about flora and fauna, as well as history of the island and incorporated that all into the hike. I definitely recommend doing the earliest hike since it allows to beat the crowds and the heat.

Kevin was a very experienced and extremely friendly guide and we felt safe and well entertained the entire ascent. The early start was definitely worth it, as we were able to relax and climb the mountain at our own pace without oncoming traffic. In addition, we were among the first on the summit and were thus able to enjoy the breathtaking view in peace.

For the first time we used getyourguide, and they sent us Kevin, a mountaineer expert. He is a very good guy. He taught us a lot about the country's history, and about the plants around the mountain (practically all kind of them). When we almost gave up climbing to the summit, he kept us motivated and kept us moving, and like 20mins later, we managed to reach the top. We recommend him to the socail media fans as well, coz he is recorded every important moment of the day (@horazis). He also surprised us with his tasty pancakes (filled with nutella). He seemed very expert of guiding people around Mauritius, so in the same night we bought 2 tickets to do another hike with Kevin. Thanks mate, it was an awesome experience.
