Recently visited the seven coloured earths. Only took approximately 10 minutes to look around. The views were very nice however I was upset to see that the tortoises had a small enclosure with no vegetation. They also had graffiti on their shells which was sad to see. This is no life for them. Overall disappointed.

The colored earth is a very cool thing to see, I guarantee your pictures will turn out great! You'll also find some turtles there, a small bar, everything is very well organised. The entrance fee for both the colored earth and waterfall is nothing compared to the view. No drones allowed though because it's a private property so don't get... More

Chamarel is just a short drive from the waterfall viewpoint. Its a protected area as it is world heritage area. You will be able to see few turtles as well in that area

I visited this incredible phenomenon in November 2015 it's difficult to believe what you are seeing, Situated in the South West of Mauritius in Rivière Noire about 4 kilometres from Chamarei you will see this extraordinary sight, The so called Seven Coloured Earths are apparently formed by colour variations due to the cooling of molten rock, these lava formations are...

Worth a visit to the seven colored earths park if you're already in the area , but don't make a special trip to visit. The "seven colored earths" are just some mounds of dirt - while they do have some colors, it's just not that impressive. Inside the paid area you can also visit the Chamarel waterfall which is a...

Seven Colored Earths is a casual and pleasant place to visit if you have spare time in your hand. Its close Black Water National Park. One can make detour visit if visiting the National Park.

It's worth a look if you have spare time on your hands. There is a beautiful waterfall and tortoises nearby to see as well. Too be honest I spent 5 minutes there and left.
