. Dicovering the Morne Brabant - The slave route The Morne Brabant is a mountain of the south-west of Mauritius, on the peninsula of the Morne. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO since July 6, 2008, the site is a sanctuary for runaway slaves and is a strong cultural and patrimonial symbol for every Mauritian. Being on private land, Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It includes a multitude of endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutonania, and its red flaming flower. The hike to the summit of Morne Brabant lasts between three and four hours, depending on the homogeneity of the group. Once on top, we discover the breathtaking panoramic views on the west and south-west lagoons and part of of the island.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer free unlimited public transport pass to the residents, which is very useful and saved lots of money. The food is great too.

The beach is just gorgeous and the mountain invokes beauty and a sense of sorrow with its history. Well worth the time to soak up the heat and beauty of the place and take in the breath-taking landscape! Highly recommended to everyone visiting the island!!

Yes. There were kids that were able to walk all the way up to the locked gate without issues at all. It is generally a wide mud path with a moderate incline on most parts.

Better contact 'Le Morne Heritage Trust Fund" who will recommend and make arrangements for an official guide. Otherwise you may fall upon a few people who have no training as guide.
