A back-to-nature premium land experience like no other
Nestled within the spectacular and historic 2,500-hectare Domaine of Bel Ombre, Bel Ombre Nature Reserve is a must-visit by all means in Mauritius. We offer a one-of-a-kind, year-round premium land experience in the heart of a scenic 1,300-hectare nature reserve wrapped in stunning biodiversity that packs in plenty of fun, premium land adventures, and thrills for visitors of all ages and interests.
Enjoy exclusive picnics, exciting quad or buggy drives, energising treks in 1,300 hectares of lush nature, breathtaking views, impressive waterfalls, and intact natural beauty. Our 4x4 safaris are also available if you are looking for a more relaxed tour of the immense reserve.
The purpose is the purpose itself! We offer you a vacation that has meaning, an experience, or an opportunity to learn something, change something, to do something. Just taking a pause and recharging your batteries does not work – if it’s only to see them depleted again after you get back home. Allow yourself to fend off the daily pressures and open up to become ‘something more’ and ‘something better' than you currently are.
Take your pick from an array of exciting premium outdoor activities that are designed to make your experience as complete and exciting as possible. Go to the source to marvel at the superb water features on a hike into the depths of the reserve, explore a spectacular UNESCO Biosphere Reserve , take a panoramic tour of the historic coastal landscape of the South-West with our Bay2Bay Tour or admire an amazing view of a breathtaking natural phenomenon that looks like an underwater waterfall from the sky.
The inviting warm waters of the Indian Ocean on one side and dramatic landscapes of tropical forests, rivers, waterfalls and mountainous terrain on the other will make for a true back-to-nature experience. geomorphology, climate and vegetation of Bel Ombre Nature Reserve also provide excellent habitat for various plant and animal species.
Throughout this premium Island Living experience, you will come across a wide variety of protected ecosystems and landscapes that provide a diverse habitat for some of the island’s rare endemic plants and birds, as well as introduced exotic animals. Amid the wealth of nature also lie the vestiges from the region’s almost three-century history of human settlement.
Our premium land experiences are designed with the utmost respect for ecology, the surrounding people, and communities. We also demonstrate our commitment to conservation through our long-standing partnerships with public authorities and specialist organizations like the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation, Reef Conservation, and SOS Patrimoine.
Take time to walk the walk and discover for yourself the gifts that nature has bestowed upon us. Whichever package you choose, we will make sure your premium land adventure – be it on foot, two wheels, or four wheels – remains safe and fun. We will always provide you with high-quality, properly maintained equipment and you will go with a qualified guide to fully appreciate the history, natural beauty, and cultural legacy of the Domaine de Bel Ombre.
Our promise is to care for the land under our stewardship. Ecology, education, adventure, and conservation are therefore of prime and equal importance for us to deepen our connection with nature. Take only pictures and keep only memories of your experience within Bel Ombre Nature Reserve and make sure to tread lightly and respectfully as you visit this amazing place.
