Canyoning at Tamarind Falls

One of the nicest and quietest places in Mauritius

It’s one of the best places for nature and animals’ lovers, where one can find numerous plants and exotic birds. The magnificent location of Tamarind Falls offers views of the west coast and of Le Morne, a must-see place.

Located on the central plateau, near the small village of Henrietta, the canyon of Tamarind Falls is the only canyon in Mauritius, you really do not want to miss. With its 11 waterfalls, its multiple jumps, its deep ponds and lush vegetation, this site remains one of the most beautiful canyons of the island that’s right for everyone – from the beginner to the extreme adventurer.

This is the ideal excursion for those looking for more adrenaline and thrills. You will abseil down the waterfalls of the Tamarind Falls canyon using nature watercourses and canyoning gear.

You will start by a spectacular experience of abseiling on a 40 m waterfall, followed by the “shower”, an aesthetic track under waterfalls, secured by a rope. Followed by the crossing of a pond of about fifty meters in diameter.


You will follow the other waterfalls of about a dozen meters, followed by a short swim. To reach the last waterfalls of 20 m, adults will be able to jump from a height of 6 meters after a descent by rope.

Jumping is not mandatory, you can abseil down. Abseiling this part is, without a doubt, the most difficult segment of activity. However, your efforts will be rewarded by great views of the magnificent gorges. The activity of canyoning will end over this great waterfall of 55 meters and after a short climb of 20 minutes, you will reach the plateau and be back to the starting point.

This excursion is done to enjoy the magnificent fauna of Tamarind nature reserve, to see up close the magnificent waterfalls of Tamarin and experiencing the adventure of canyoning with Mauritius’ top qualified guides.

This tour is managed and directed by the main guides of canyoning and climbing in Mauritius, with a huge experience in these activities in all parts of Mauritius. So, you have nothing to fear.
