The project

From a project hatched in 2006 where weeding and restoration activities were initiated, Ebony Forest opened to public access in 2017 with the mission to save several of the endangered endemic and indigenous species of fauna and flora of Mauritius. This is achieved through restoration of a viable environment, reintroduction of species, as well as awareness-raising and through education.

The place

Next to the Chamarel coloured earths site, Ebony Forest is a privately-owned park, carrying out eco-tourism activities for the sake of conservation and restoration of Mauritian bio-diversity.

The focus

Indeed; Ebony Forest is a success story. Since 2006, 2 critically-endangered species of endemic birds as well as 140 endemic and natives species of plants have found refuge with a total of over 141,000 plants having been planted on a surface of 16 hectare.

The excursions and activities

Activities evolve around visiting the forest, namely along the elevated pathways for observing and enjoying the endemic wildlife and wonderful views.
– Private visits,
– Guided hikes,
– Free hikes,
– Hike up the “Piton Canot” (1hr00; average difficulty),
– Sundowner from sublime viewpoint (includes drinks & snacks),
– Bird watching,
– Plant a tree (and offset part of your carbon-credit),

For the laid-back: – You are welcome to book a guided tour in one of our 4X4 (subject to availability), visit the museum and enjoy the restaurant.

Through an accessible immersion into wildlife, inspire your children to learn and shine through authentic experiences in nature, becoming active global citizens for a sustainable future.
