The rugged, mountainous peninsula of Le Morne Brabant stands as a World Heritage Site and symbol of the abolitionist movement in the country. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, runaway slaves sought shelter here, living in the caves cut from the basalt rock. In 1835, Mauritius abolished slavery, and a police expedition traveled to the peninsula to inform the runaways of their freedom. Tragically, the community misunderstood the intentions of the approaching officers, and many jumped from the cliffs to their deaths. Book a guided tour of this historical site, and along the way explore the peninsula's unique microclimate, interesting plant life, and impressive geological features. Our Le Morne tour itinerary planner makes visiting Le Morne Brabant and other Le Morne attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

I made it in time with break pictures in the late morning, used to make sport and the heat I was able to complete without incident... However my advice to the less experienced to leave early but especially the last 800 meters to avoid if physically weak, I met some people paralysed not knowing what to do... to avoid with kids under 12/13 years...
