The hunting ground
Amazing site in plain nature
An unforgettable experience
The hunting grounds are situated at the foot of Piton de la Grande Rivière-Noire, the highest (mountain) peak in Mauritius – 828 metres. It borders with the Black River National Park which is a natural reserve of 3,000 ha where there are many protected species of indigenous and endemic fauna and flora.
The Black River cuts across the property and the topography of the land varies. On the mountainous part grows thick and luxuriant vegetation and from different spots you can get stunning panorama of the ocean. Then, the land slopes to reach large golden plains bordered with thorn shrubs and tamarind trees. It is very similar to the African savannah. (link with activities).
For many generations, the Domaine de Grande Rivière-Noire has been exclusively a family property but since 2013 they opened their hunting grounds to friends, occasional or passionate hunters.
The objectives are to promote the values and traditions of hunting and you will be warmly welcomed by a resourceful and competent team.
Bellowing to let know about its presence, to challenge, or to show triumph, the valleys of the Domaine sings.
Concentrated on their does, the great stags, less fearful and conscious of any danger let their cry be heard throughout the forest.
It is the perfect time to observe and admire the fascinating sight of nature taking back all its rights and where time no longer exists.
