Full description
The 7 Cascades or Tamarind Falls as it is known is located in the district of Black River Gorge near to the village of Henrietta. The source of the waterfalls starts from the Tamarind River and consists of at least 7 simultaneous splendid waterfalls. The surrounding area is renowned for its breathtaking nature as it is filled with exotic and indigenous plants, trees and beautiful species of birds making it a sought after destination for any nature lover or adventurer’s bucket list. Undoubtedly the only way to thoroughly enjoy and discover this hidden gem in the middle of Mauritius is with an experienced guide on our 5 to 6 hour hike. After a short safety briefing and introduction, head off along the trail for about 40 minutes until reaching the first part of the Tamarind Falls canyon. As you embark on this great adventure of canyoning and hiking you begin to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life as you become overwhelmed by this beautiful scenery. The distance between the first and second plateau is short and can only be reached by a steep descent. This is where you will have your first opportunity to jump from the waterfall into the basin below, a drop of about seven meters, but still the fastest way to get down to the next plateau !! For non jumpers, don’t worry! You can climb down a path to reach the plateau and still enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool, clear water. On arrival at the fifth waterfall, there are two ways to get down. The first way is a five-meter jump into the water-filled basin below or you can climb down taking advantage of the nearby trees and branches that create a natural ladder. Of course, if you choose the second option our skilled guide will be by your side at all times to guarantee your safety and guide you. This is one of the main reasons why it’s important to have an experienced guide with you. If you feel the urge to cool off after climbing down, you can still take a relaxing swim in the lagoon type basin at the bottom of the fifth waterfall. At the end of this adventure and reaching the goal of standing on top of the seventh waterfall a sense of achievement overwhelms you as it sets the scene for a superb view over the lush green canyon. A chance to look back at the terrain you’ve covered from the first waterfall, it also puts into perspective how high these magnificent waterfalls really are. From the top of the seventh waterfall to its basin there is approximately a 60 meter drop, so for those thrill-seekers who aren’t afraid of heights and want to take a closer look, it’s wise to lie on your stomach just near the edge of the waterfall. The 7 Cascades is truly worth a visit!

I had the privilege of having Irvan a great guide all to myself! Very beautiful, morning with a superb view of the 7 waterfalls. Very pleasant swimming and very good lunch at Irvan. I recommend.

The guided tour with Prakash was very nice. Prakash is a great guide, explained a lot to us about the plant world and very caringly introduced us to the not harmless waterfalls. Highly recommended!

Superb family day accompanied by Prakash to guide us in this lush vegetation. Completely disconcerting decor and more than 7 waterfalls, each more beautiful than the other. The sometimes well-marked physical effort is more than worth it. To do so good mobility Thank you Prakash !!!
