Meet your guide at the Henrietta Bus Station and start with a short briefing about the hike. Then begin your 3-hour hiking experience by walking through sugarcane fields to reach the entrance to the canyon, admiring the stunning landscape around you. Make your way down to the canyon, and after 30 minutes of walking you’ll reach the first of many waterfalls. Take the chance to swim in the natural pools carved out of the rock. Learn about the plants, the animals, and the history of Mauritius from your guide. Finish your tour at Tamarind Falls, the most impressive waterfall, before returning to your original start point.

Mauritius: Tamarind Falls Guided Hike with Lunch

2. Mauritius: Tamarind Falls Guided Hike with Lunch

Walk up the striking Tamarind Falls canyon, one of Mauritius' most popular attractions, led by an experienced mountaineer. Meet your guide at the Henrietta bus station for a safety briefing before you head to the starting point of the hike. The first section of the walk will be through luscious rainforest, including a river crossing where you can choose to relax in a natural jacuzzi. Make sure to keep an eye out for the phenomenal and rare endemic birds, and plants. Watch the connected waterfalls flowing and listen to the birds chirping as you climb up the canyon’s seven platforms and one rock-scrambling section. Along the way, your guide will tell you historical stories about Mauritius' past, and the significance of these falls. Pause at the fifth platform to take a dip in the three connected waterfalls’ luscious waters. Take a moment to admire the breath-taking views surrounding you as you comfortably cool down. Carry on walking up a few steep sections before enjoying a packed lunch while you take in the deep canyon’s scenery beneath you. Try not to let your jaw drop too low as you see the intense beauty and nature Mauritius is so famous for, and make sure to snap some well-deserved photos. Let the rushing water massage your back under the last waterfall before setting off to reach the summit of the Tamarind Falls. Even though the official name of the hike is called the “7 Cascades”, or seven waterfalls, there are 13 in total — all of which you will visit on this tough yet stunning hike.

Tamarin falls road is awesome, but sometimes a bit hard and dangerous. Prepare your equipment carefully. Kevin is professional guide, feel in safe with his advice and can now I can enjoy the perfect sceneries. Wild South track with Kevin is also perfect, highly recommend Wild South with Kevin (don’t skip waterfall swimming)

It was our first trip in Mauritius, and it couldn’t be better. Our guide was helpful and funny, the weather was so tropical from sunny to rainy and everything in between. The tour was wonderful, those waterfalls are a must see!

Thank you Frabice, our lovely guide. Beautiful views and such an enjoyable trek in the forest. Cold water at first, but worth the leap of faith IMPORTANT: don't forget your mosquito repellant!!!

That’s wonderfull, our guide Jeremie was super nice, that’s a great experience, also for beginner, some parts of the walking could be sliding and dangerous so think about good shoes.

Fabrice, our guide, was amazing. Super helpful and knowledgeable.
