Imagine one of the last remaining places on Mauritius where majestic black ebony trees stand tall and paradise flycatchers and Mauritius Black Bulbul chase each other through the trees. Once home to the Dodo, Ebony Forest, remains a refuge for threatened native flora and fauna. Visitors will be treated to open-air safari jeep rides, breathtaking views from Sublime Point, mid-canopy walkways that leave you feeling as if you are floating amongst the trees. Then there’s the Ebony Experience, where you will witness 8 million years of history, from the volcanic eruptions that created the island and the unique animals and plants that once lived here, to the destruction brought about by man’s actions.. Visit us and see our efforts to preserve and restore the forest and its inhabitants. We have planted over 110,000 native trees and weeded 13 hectares of forest over the last 10 years. With less than 2% of native forest remaining in Mauritius, come to Ebony Forest and join our Guardians of the Forest by planting a tree or sowing a seed. Remember, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. You can also purchase your endemic plants from our native plant nursery and do your bit for the island’s natural heritage.Using our custom trip planner, Chamarel attractions like Ebony Forest Reserve can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Besides our ecotourism activities, we have an Ecology Centre designed to foster a sense of interest and responsibility in students from Primary through to College, for this formidable nature around us, in order to generate new Guardians of the Forest. If you are hungry, you can visit Le Takamaka restaurant and if you want to grab a souvenir, then our boutique has a selection of local artisanal products.
May the Ebony Forest be with you.
