Our guide, Lucas, met us and transported us to the starting point. Lucas was very attentive to health and safety matters about the hike and we felt very safe in his hands. The whole adventure was brilliant/albeit challenging at times. Lucas was very knowledgeable in the history of the surrounding area and we would highly recommend this trip. Well done to Lucas for making it such fun. !

This hiking experience was unbelievable. We visited 5 waterfalls and we were able to take pictures and swim in one of the natural pools. Our guide, Lucas was very helpful showing us the way and explaining the techniques during the hike as certain parts were more difficult than others. This is an experience I will definitely recommend for nature enthusiasts.

Beautiful landscapes and a must to do in Mauritius. Meeting on time, pick up point clear, and guide very experienced. Difficulty of the truck it’s 6/10 but when it rains becomes 8/10 .. however the mud made the experience more fun ;) 100% recommended!!
