Back to the wild


Experience the indigenous yet diverse and beautiful natural heritage of Mauritius in its most pristine state – the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – Bel Ombre. Watch your steps and keep your eyes wide open as you wander a truly unique site with a distinctly Jurassic feel to it. A worthy and memorable foray back in time to when the island was an immaculate natural sanctuary still unknown to man.

The UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is accessible with a four-wheel drive safari vehicle or through trekking on foot and experienced guides from the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation will introduce you to some wonderful marshlands, heath, tropical evergreen forest and mid-altitude forest. They will also help you identify the rare endemic bird species with exotic names such as the Echo Parakeet, the Mauritius Kestrel, the Pink Pigeon, the Cuckoo Shrike, the Olive White-eye and the Mauritius Fody.

Each participant contributes to the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation by taking this fun and enlightening adventure into the wild!
