Everything aboutthe hunting grounds

Origin of the hunting grounds

A unique topography

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.

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.
