Chamarel: 7 Coloured Earth Geopark Entrance Ticket

1. Chamarel: 7 Coloured Earth Geopark Entrance Ticket

Visit the Original 7 Coloured Earth in Chamarel and drink in the lunar-like spectacle of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow sand dunes set in the middle of lush green vegetation, with the Black River mountain range in the background. On your way to 7 Coloured Earth, you can also admire the majestic Chamarel Waterfall, the tallest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius at about 100 metres high. You can also wander to the tortoise park to see the tortoises called Toto, Tizean, Rosette, Nini, Tizom and Tifam up close — a great activity for the family. Originally from Aldabra in Seychelles, the species can reach up to 1 meter in length with an average lifespan of more than 150 years. During your visit to the Geopark, you can also stop for a snack or lunch at the Coffee Shop. There you'll find themed products such as the Seven-Coloured Macaroons or Gourmet Popsicles. The Coffee Shop also serves Chamarel Coffee; the only locally grown and roasted coffee in Mauritius. Its taste is unique... maybe because it is grown on volcanic soil.

What people are saying about Black River

Felt like a bit of a disorganised start with regards to who went in which boat etc but once we started it was fine. We were lucky to share with a lovely Turkish couple and 2 guides (Benji and the other guy who's birthday it was but don't remeber his name ‍♀️). Benji was great, chatty and entertaining. They danced and provided music. Swimming with the dolphins is hard work be ready to jump when they tell you to and if you can use fins then do otherwise you'll never keep up with them. Even so the boys kept trying for us to swim with them and on the 4th attempt I managed it. It wasn't for long but it was a beautiful memory. Then we travelled to a snorkeling spot, visited crystal rock and spent the rest of the time on the island chilling. The boys made a lovely bbq lunch and kept us well supplied with drink All in all it was a good day but don't be mislead by the title. Swimming with dolphins was a very small part of the day but worth it

Great experience however, swimming with dolphins requires one to be a strong and fast swimmer. Our guide, Fabrice, was very patient and good with kids. My 4yr old got to snorkel and spend some time swimming in the ocean. The bbq lunch on the island had its highs and lows. Food tasted amazing but there was a long wait to get it. We also felt that the time on the island could have been cut by an hour or so.

I got one thing to say, this is a life time experience! Tour, guide, food and everything couldn't be better.

Was nice. Sighted schools of s, snorkeled a bit and enjoyed the Benetiers Island time.

Well organized, well supervised! Moments shared with the rather exceptional dolphins.
