All about the Hiking at the 7 Cascades.

The Tamarind Falls also called the 7 cascades, is an adventurous and thrilling hike located in the South West of Mauritius. It is popular for its magical and unspoiled lush greenery. It is total immersion into the tropical forest of the island, where we will discover five of seven waterfalls of Tamarind one after the other.

The hike offers a great discovery of the diverse nature of Mauritius. You will encounter endemic birds and plants. During the walk, we have the possibility to enjoy a nice swim in the natural pool that water has carved in the rock, and appreciate a natural massage under the cascades. Free fish therapy is also available. Yes, you heard it right!
