Recently opened to the public, this former hunting estate, well preserved to this day and not having suffered much from deforestation, still shelters beautiful parcels of primary forest and in particular magnificent ebony trees of more than 300 years having escaped, thanks to their inaccessibility, to the ravages of the ancient colonizers. At your own pace, on the trails or in the company of a specialized guide, you can discover several varieties of endemic trees and, if you are lucky, rare birds like the rooster of the woods (terpsiphone bourbonnensis), the cook (coracina typica) or the pink pigeon (columba mayeri) … The area also offers sports activities such as archery on 3D targets – a way to combine walking, challenge and precision – and a beautiful zip line 260 meters long overhanging a canyon, followed by a quite vertiginous Nepali bridge of more than 200 meters. No need to book (except for canyoning), guides are held at the entrance of the conservation area to guide visitors to the activity of their choice.


Open 7/7 from 9h to 17h. 100 Rs / child 150 Rs / adult the entry to the field including a stroll of about thirty minutes in the forest, 600 Rs per person the zip line and the Nepalese bridge, 600 Rs per person guided walk in the endemic forest, 300 Rs the archery learning session and 1000 Rs per person for the full course; half price for children. No reservation required except for canyoning which is an activity offered only on request 72 hours in advance. Think to bring sneakers and mosquito repellent.
