Safari Jeep

Likened to a Jurassic Park experience.

Our two open-air safari jeeps provide you with the opportunity to easily move around the site between the Visitor Centre, Flycatcher Forest, and Sublime Point. Each jeep accommodates 10 persons. Entrance tickets, except for schools, include access to the jeep, which is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

 

A jeep departs the Visitor Centre every 30 mins on the 0:00 and 0:30, every 0:15 and 0:45 from the Flycatcher Forest and every 0:30 and 0:00 from Sublime Point. This enables you to hop on and off at these specific localities, should you wish to spend longer in some areas of the forest or to walk parts of the trails.

Let’s be honest. Our diesel jeeps increase our carbon footprint and go against our goals of offsetting carbon. We hope to compensate by planting more trees and we also ensure our vehicles are regularly serviced.

 

We love it when you choose to walk. You can truly immerse yourself in nature and there are so many things you can spot, that you wouldn’t notice in a vehicle. Magical fungi growing on trees. The sound of rustling leaves and chirping birds. The smell of flower blossom. But we recognise that you don’t have the time and sometimes energy to enjoy a leisurely walk in the forest. Ebony Forest is also located on a mountain slope. We provide a jeep despite its impact on the environment because we believe it is equally important to inspire and connect as many people as possible with a Mauritian endemic forest.

 

With so little native forest remaining we hope by increasing accessibility, you too will fall in love with an ebony forest and help save it. Our dream is that one day majestic black ebony trees will stand tall near main roads and school grounds, rather than only be found in patches on the top of mountains.
