Southwest Mauritius Day Trip: Chamarel Waterfall, Trou aux Cerfs, and Seven Coloured Earth
Experience the unspoiled nature of southwest Mauritius on this day trip from your island hotel. With an expert guide, travel to the verdant Rivière Noire District, where high mountain peaks, volcanic formations and nature reserves dominate. Visit towering Chamarel Waterfall and the striking Seven Coloured Earth dunes, sample rum at a local distillery, and savor a 3-course Mauritius lunch. End at the ancient Trou aux Cerfs crater, boasting sweeping island views. Numbers are limited to 15 on this small-group tour, ensuring a more personalized experience.

Your day starts with pickup from your hotel on the north, east, west or south side of the island. Enjoy the scenery and learn about the area?s flora, fauna and history from your guide as you drive along the west coast to the Rivière Noire District. Pass through Le Morne, La Prairie and Macondé before curving back into the mountains to the picturesque village of Chamarel.

Visit Chamarel Waterfall, the tallest waterfall in Mauritius that plunges more than 328 feet (100 meters) against a scenic backdrop of forests and mountains. Continue to the Seven Coloured Earth, a striking geological formation created by volcanic rocks that cooled at different temperatures. Admire the exposed hillsides glowing with red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow colors.

Next, head to La Rhumerie de Chamarel distillery to sample local rum. Follow your tasting with a delicious, traditional 3-course lunch served with Chamarel coffee and water at a local restaurant. 

After lunch, continue up to a high plateau and reach a viewpoint over Black River Gorges National Park. Listen as your guide points out the variety of flora and fauna thriving below.

In the district of Savanne, visit the secluded Grand Bassin lake, an important place of worship for Mauritian Hindus. Your last stop is the Trou aux Cerfs, a huge volcanic crater formed millions of years ago. From here you?ll enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the island.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel in the evening.
