Ebony Forest | Visit + Bird Watching (Minimum 2 people)

Enjoy this unique birding experience with one of the most magnificent and the remaining places in Mauritius where you will have the chance to discover about five endemic birds.

Start your journey with a brief visit to the museum at Ebony and discover the natural history of Mauritius. The guide will lead you to the Echo Parakeet and Pink Pigeon release aviaries. On your journey, you will pass by the flycatcher raised walkway where you will be highlighted with the restoration work aimed at recreating and conserving the native forest. Along your way, you will hear the history of the extinction of our birds.

Get ready to explore the forest of Ebony while observing some of the World’s rarest birds such as the Pink Pigeon, Echo Parakeet, Gray-White eye, Paradise Flycatcher and Black Bulbul.

Next, you will reach the Sublime point where you will be served with some local drinks and snacks while enjoying the marvelous view of the crystal clear blue waters surrounding Ile aux Benitiers, the mountain of West and all the way to the North

Your tour will finish at the Visitor Centre, where you can revisit the museum, choose to eat at Le Takamaka restaurant and grab a unique souvenir in our shop. As Ebony Forest is a semi-dry intermediate forest, hiking conditions are often ideal and all you need is a pair of trainers. Feel free to spend the rest of the day hiking around the site.
