About Le Morne Cultural Landscape

Le Morne, a rugged mountain that juts into the Indian Ocean at the southwest of Mauritius was used as a shelter by runaway slaves and maroons, through the 18th and early years of the 19th centuries.

Protected by the mountain’s isolated, wooded and almost inaccessible cliffs, the escaped slaves formed small settlements in the caves and on the summit of Le Morne. The oral traditions associated with the maroons, have made Le Morne a symbol of the slaves’ fight for freedom, their suffering, and their sacrifice, all of which have relevance to the countries from which the slaves came - the African mainland, Madagascar, India, and South-east Asia.

Indeed, Mauritius, an important stopover in the eastern slave trade, also came to be known as the “Maroon republic” because of the large number of escaped slaves who lived on Le Morne Mountain (source: Unesco)

About the Stable

The adult 20 horses and 2 ponies (ideal for children) are kept and trained in this unique environment of Le Morne. The horses are treated and vaccinated. They are taken care of with regular exercise everyday and are fed with freshly cut grass and cereals. These horses are ideal for both beginners and experienced riders. They are very calm and ensure a safe and pleasant ride also for the non-experienced riders.
