The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features. Our Le Morne tour itinerary planner makes visiting Le Morne Brabant and other Le Morne attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Le Morne Brabant Reviews
A faire à la fraîche le matin. Compter 3 h environ A/R selon l'envie. Il suffit d'être bien chaussé, et avoir de l'eau. Certes sur la fin ça grimpe, pour moi qui ai le vertige aucun passage compliqué.... more »To be done in the morning. It takes about 3 hours a/R to your liking. Just be well-heeled, and have water. Certainly on the end it climbs, for me who has vertigo no complicated passage. Small climbing passages, of course avoid the days of high winds and rains! Made with children from 11 to 13 years old who found it easy but they are climbers from an early age! Up there a 360-degree treat.... a 5-star pic nic break... as many hotels down below !!!
Randonnée incontournable lors d'un séjour à Maurice! Le fait de prendre un guide n est pas nécessaire si vous êtes un bon marcheur!

On the other hand, this ascent requires a little flexibility and dexterity for the complete acession. My vertigo was the last meters of the course because there is a real danger for his life!
