If you love waterfalls as much as we do, this is a “not-to-be-missed”!
Alexandra Falls is hidden in the deep jungle of the Black River Gorges National Park and is something out of an Avatar movie scene (although you won’t find dragons there)! Strolling around this wondrously imaginative setting, you’ll find it hard to believe you’re on planet Earth! Alexandra Falls could definitely be the reason you’ll wake up at 6 A.M in Mauritius to achieve a peaceful and pleasant mindset. The allure of falling water; surrounded by the lush greenery, to the sounds of local bird species and other creatures are perfect continual motions that drive us as human to mentally relax at the sight of Alexandra Falls. The surroundings of the waterfalls depict a real jungle book and promise tranquility and peacefulness while you enjoy one of the best places to see in Mauritius.
Alexandra Falls is accessible on your route to Plaine Champagne (ideal for fruit picking) and heading to Grand Bassin. It is an excellent addition to your day trip at those two locations and passing through other natural wonders along Chamarel.
A few tips by Mauritius Explored:
Not tricky at all, follow the sign to “Alexandra Falls Viewpoint” to reach the waterfall.
Tickle your palates and try out local delicacies from the stalls and sellers at the parking area of the waterfall viewpoint.
Admire it from the viewpoint, or hike until the bottom of it!
