Shuttle hotel to hike
Le Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of le Morne. Our team has been guiding guests from all over the planet on this majestic rock for the past twelve years.
Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary of the runaway slaves who would have committed suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain.
Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is our floral emblem.
The hike to the summit of Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the pace and homogeneity of the group.
Some steeper parts of the ascent will require the use of our hands to progress safely towards the top, where we’ll discover the breath-taking views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island !
The hike to le Morne lasts roughly 3h30 to 4h00.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ?
We were more than an hour late to meet Nicolas our guide, but if he was annoyed, it did not show. Nicolas was charming from the start and a wonderful guide, offering just the right number of interesting insights, facts and anecdotes as we walked. He was wonderful with the children, particularly in the sense that he gave clear guidance as to when the next little stop or viewpoint would be. We loved our outing and will definitely do another walk on our next visit to Mauritius!
More than just a guided hike, climbing Le Morne with Yanature was a communion with the environment. We took time to enjoy every single step, learn about many trees and flowers along the way and of course appreciate stunning views.
I had the chance to hike with Yan, and we could all feel how much he was into sharing his love for the region and his activity. And how much he cares about you being comfortable and confident along the way. Such a complete human experience and a great meeting in addition ! Tons of thanks !
Thank you for the wonderful and informative day, this was exactly what my daughter and I were looking for. Beautiful scenery; hard at times but totally worth the amazing view from the top of Le Morne mountain. We were lucky to have one of the most experienced and skillful guide Yan. Highly recommended
