About the Chamarel 7 Coloured Earth Geopark
Set in the middle of lush green vegetation, this unique geological curious happening is one of those amazing creations of nature that will mesmerise you. With distinct colours of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow, the Geopark has 15 metres of highly coloured dunes. They sit in an open clearing, whose lower edge is skirted by an endemic plant garden highlighting the natural heritage of Mauritius.
There is also a viewpoint, from where you can see the Chamarel Waterfalls. The Chamarel Waterfall is a striking piece of nature standing amid dense vegetation and the tallest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius - at about 100m high. It is a spectacular showcase of millions of years of volcanic activity.
Get up close to the resident giant tortoises called Toto, Tizean, Rosette, Nini, Tizom and Tifam. The park’s oldest giant tortoise is said to have died at the age of 250 years. The second-largest species of tortoise in the world, the Aldabra species is a cousin of the native domed and saddle-backed giant tortoises, which have gone extinct since the early 18th century.
