Mauritius: Tamarind Falls Guided Hike with Lunch

1. 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.

We have just returned home from a fantastic Holiday in Mauritius, we booked with get our guide and received Kevin from Horazis. Kevin and the dog Ben were fantastic guides, Absolutely brilliant. We spent 5 hours hiking through the rain forest to various waterfall locations. Kevin looked after us every step of the way with Ben following on behind. He talked us History, native and non native trees and plants, he made sure we were OK every step of the way. We went as a family with two children 10 & 11 and Kevin made it fun and enjoyably for all of us, he took photos we will always have to remember, he offered wild swimming at stops, He made us a very tasty lunch, we saw a section of Mauritius not many tourists see. If we had time we would have hired Kevin again, on our return to Mauritius we will be booking Kevin again for another guided tour.

Great hike with breathtaking views. Kevin, our guide, led us safely through the rainforest over muddy slopes and slippery rocks. The route was very challenging, probably also because of the bad weather, and I would only recommend it for experienced hikers. You should be sure-footed and not afraid of heights and be prepared to get quite wet and muddy. There is hardly any “normal walking”, you climb a lot on stones and need bamboo and trees along the way to avoid slipping in the mud. But Kevin helps through it wonderfully and we (48 & 53, quite sporty) also had a lot of fun climbing. The waterfalls and the view are really big cinema. Clear recommendation for fit people who love nature and have sensible shoes with them

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!

This hike was our highlight of the holiday, breathtaking but also exhausting. Our guide Kevin was very nice, professional and patient. He told us a lot about Mauritius and took great pictures of us, which we then received.

Kevin our guide was very nice, smiling, gave us explanations. Decent meal. With an incredible view of two waterfalls. Bathing. Great I recommend
