Full description

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.

We really enjoyed our hike with Kevin our guide. The route is stunning and allows you to visit all 7 waterfalls with time to swim in one of the natural pools. Kevin was knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants and kindly took lots of photos and videos of our hike which he shared with us. We would highly recommend this 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)

Amazing Hike from the very bottom of the canyon to the top, with some challenging and very fun climbs. Whilst my partner and I are relatively fit, it certainly raised our heart rate and breathing on the steep climbs, but if you're up for a challenge then its worth every step. I would imagine it being the next grade up from the regular 'start at the top and see a few waterfalls' kind of tour. Progressively stunning views and pristine waterfalls to take a dip in and relax for lunch. Kevin was both fun and knowledgable about the area and the history of Mauritius. All in all a perfect trip and highly recommended for anyone considering a little adventure.
