A back-to-nature experience like no other
Nestled within the spectacular and historic 2,500-hectare domaine of Heritage Bel Ombre, Heritage Nature Reserve is a must-visit by all means in Mauritius. We offer a one of a kind, year-round premium experience in the heart of scenic 1,300-hectare nature reserve wrapped in a stunning biodiversity that packs in plenty of fun, adventure and thrills for visitors of all ages and interests.
The purpose is the purpose itself! We offer you a vacation that has meaning, an experience, or an opportunity to learn something, to change something, to do something. Just taking a pause and recharging your batteries does not work – if it’s only to see them depleted again after you get back home. Allow yourself to fend off the daily pressures and open up to become ‘something more’ and ‘something better’ than you currently are.
Take your pick from an array of exciting outdoor pursuits that are designed to make your experience as complete and exciting as possible. Go to the source to marvel at the superb water features on a hike into the depths of the reserve, explore a spectacular UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, take a panoramic tour of the historic coastal landscape of the South-West or an amazing view of a breathtaking natural phenomenon that looks like an underwater waterfall from the sky.
The inviting warm waters of the Indian Ocean on one side and dramatic landscapes of tropical forests, rivers, waterfalls and mountainous terrain on the other will make for a true back-to-nature experience. The geomorphology, climate and vegetation of Heritage Nature Reserve also provide excellent habitat for various plant and animal species.
Throughout this Island Living experience, you will come across a wide variety of protected ecosystems and landscapes that provide a diverse habitat for some of the island’s rare endemic plants and birds, as well as introduced exotic animals. Amid the wealth of nature also lie the vestiges from the region’s almost three-century history of human settlement.
Our experiences are designed with the utmost respect for ecology, the surrounding people and communities. We also demonstrate our commitment to conservation through our long-standing partnerships with public authorities and specialist organisations like the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation, Reef Conservation and SOS Patrimoine.
Take time to walk the walk and discover for yourself the gifts that nature has bestowed upon us. Whichever the package you choose, we will make sure your adventure – be it on foot, two wheels or four wheels – remains safe and fun. We will always provide you with high-quality, properly maintained equipment and you will go with a qualified guide to fully appreciate the history, natural beauty and cultural legacy of the Heritage Bel Ombre domaine.
Our promise is to care for the land under our stewardship. Ecology, education, adventure and conservation are therefore of prime and equal importance for us to deepen your connection with nature. Take only pictures and keep only memories of your experience within Heritage Nature Reserve and make sure to tread lightly and respectfully as you visit this amazing place.
