MAURITIUS EXPLORE

LA VALLEE DE FERNEY

La Vallée de Ferney shelters one of the very last nature sanctuaries on the island. It
provides an unhoped-for safe haven to a great variety of indigenous species,
many of which are rare or threatened.La Vallée de Ferney is not only a
reference among eco-tourism sites but, above all, a 200-hectare reserve
where ambitious projects to restore the flora and fauna of Mauritius are
being conducted.

Exploring La Vallee de Ferney means more than just to take a ramble; it provides an unforgettable
experience in a unique place which combines the pleasures of hiking with
environment protection.

Every visitor actively contributes to the preservation of the biodiversity of
Mauritius which is one of the most threatened in the world.

After one and a half hour hike over 3 kilometres, the ramblers will have
the privilege to admire the d’Eugenia bojeri (Bois clou), the Pandanus
macrostigma (Vacoas). The Olax psittacorum (Bois perroquet), the Pandanus iceryi (Vacoas), the
Poupartia pubescens (Bois Poupart) and Polyscias dichroostachya (Bois
d’éponge).

They will may also have the opportunity to observe the Mauritian Kestrel (Falco punctatus) looking for
its prey. Since 1987, it has been re introduced at La Vallée de Ferney. The
Kestrel is endemic to Mauritius and is the only rapacious that has survived.
It is considered to be the rarest bird in the world.

Ferney is also the habitat of bats and the white tail tropical bird. In the
future, with the help of the Mauritian Wild life, La Vallee de Ferney will
witness the re introduction of endemic species such as the Pink Pigeon and
the Echo Parakeet.
