Overview

. 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.

We went through company called local spirit. 1st stage of climb is walking only. 2 nd stage is quite moderate while going down. Lovely views from the top.

This was amazing, definitely worth the climb! We booked a guide at our hotel, it can be a bit tricky in some spots.

Amazing time with friend at le morne brabant. Quite a steady climb at frost followed by the more technical climb. Does not require any guide. 10/10 would totally recommend.

It’s quite challenging once the second half starts but absolutely rewarding to reach the cross on top. While many hotels advise to take a guide and some books say it’s mandatory - if you’re physically in shape you can do it well on your own....More

The view from the top of the mountain is worth the risk. But stay clear when it is windy.
