About the Bel Ombre Nature Reserve:

Located in the southern part of Mauritius, between the infinite blue of the Indian Ocean and the emerald green endemic forests of the South lies Bel Ombre Nature Reserve: some 1,300 hectares of pristine vegetation and breath-taking views.

Bel Ombre Nature Reserve invites you to reconnect with nature while exploring the many treasures of the Mauritian biodiversity. You will feel like you are at the African Savannah.

The main objective of the reserve is to preserve and to promote Mauritius ‘unique biodiversity’. The reserve’s team has spearheaded numerous conservation projects to protect its fragile ecosystem.

The creation of Heritage Estate in 1823 was followed by the construction of a sugar factory of the same name in 1855. Although the property of approximately 121 hectares distinguished itself as one of the best in the region, the factory shut down in 1874 due to its remote location.

At a later stage,Bel Ombre Nature Reserve was created. Today, the Heritage’s chimney still stands majestically in the middle of the lush vegetation.

Conservation and Eco-tourism:

The main objective of the reserve is to preserve and to promote Mauritius ‘unique biodiversity’. Working hand in hand with Mauritian Wild life foundation, the reserve’s team has organised numerous conservation projects to protect its fragile ecosystem.
