Le Morne Brabant, situated in the south-west of Mauritius, is more than a mere mountain. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2008, and a potent symbol of the island’s past, having served as a refuge for escaped slaves.
For nearly two decades, our Yanature team has been leading explorers from all corners of the globe up this captivating and remarkably preserved landmark. Le Morne Brabant is a thriving ecosystem, boasting numerous endemic species, among which is the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, the floral emblem of Mauritius.
The hike to the summit of Le Morne Brabant is a gratifying 3.5 – 4 hour journey, depending on the group’s speed. Some steep sections of the climb may require the use of hands for safe ascension, but the reward at the top is worth every effort.
On reaching the summit, you will be treated to magnificent panoramic views of the west and south-west lagoons and a distinct perspective of the island. Embark with us on a memorable 3.5 to 4-hour adventure on Le Morne Brabant!

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
