About Black River Gorges National Park in Mauritius

The Black River Gorges National Park is located in the western part of the island country of Mauritius. It is the biggest national park of Mauritius. It is protected by the government of Mauritius. The park covers 2% of the total landmass of the island country.

Once upon a time, the Black River Gorges National Park was used as a hunting ground. In the year 1994, scientists identified endemic bird species and flowering plants on this site.  Since then the site has been given the status of a national park. The park protects the rainforests of the country, but some of it has been destroyed by the introduction of foreign plant species. The national park is rich in biodiversity and contains rare species of birds, plants, and animals. Currently, 700 species of indigenous plants are found in this national park.

The park is a great spot for nature lovers. Trekking tours are frequently organized by the local operators in the Black River Gorges National Park. There are various summits and valleys that can be explored on foot. Tourists can get a glimpse of endemic bird species if they get lucky. They can find various waterfalls and beautiful mountains in the park.

In the Black River Gorges National Park, endemic bird species like the pink pigeon, Mauritius parakeet, Mauritius grey white-eye, Mauritius cuckoo-shrike, Mauritius olive white-eye, Mauritius fody, Mauritius kestrel, and Mauritius bulbul can be found.

Due to its location in the inner hilly region of Mauritius, Black River Gorges National Park experiences relatively mild temperatures as compared to the rest of the humid island. September through January is the ideal time to visit the park. There are two entrances to the park: Black River Center in the west and Pétrin Information Center in the east.
