The Black River Gorges National Park, or Gorges de rivière noir in French, is a national park. Since June 1994, the forest of nearly 6600 hectares, located in Plaine Champagne on the heights in the South West of Mauritius, is classified National Park.
The Park offers panoramic views of the gorges, waterfalls and the coastline of the West Coast. There are about 300 species of trees, shrubs, plants and flowers and many birds including 9 species of birds endemic to Mauritius.
Among these endemic birds, the Mauritius Kestrel, commonly known as the Mauritius Falcon, The Pink Pigeon and the Big Green Cat, have moved from Endangered Species to Endangered Species.
More than 60 kilometers of trails have been traced in the park. The most important are those leading to the highest peak of the island: the peak of the Petite Rivière Noire, the trail macchabée which joins the two information centers (National Parks Conservation Service) and parakeet trail.
