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 the valley means more than just to take a ramble; it provides an unforgettable experience in a unique place, where the pleasures of hiking are associated with environment protection. Furthermore by visiting La Vallée de Ferney you are actively contributing to the preservation of the biodiversity of Mauritius, one of the most threatened in the world. The kestrel is the Mauritian falcon. This bird is protected and can only be found in Mauritius. It was in danger of extinction in the past. Fortunately nowadays thanks to the work of the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation and the National Park Conservation services, the island counts around 400 kestrels including 15 pairs within La Vallée de Ferney. The visitors will be able to see them just few yards away.
Kestrel feeding is done everyday as from 12h00. Unique in Mauritius.
